Without the ability to boot any USB devices you are and I hate saying it you are basically screwed :-( You could try contacting Lenovo about repair but theres a decent chance they will charge you. You willing installed what they very well might call unsupported software. Best of luck! Please let us know the outcome if you send it in.

Try using Rufus to copy an ISO file downloaded using Microsoft Media Creation Tool to a flash drive. Once both files are downloaded open Rufus and drag and drop the Windows.iso into Rufus. Make sure "Partition and target system type" is set to "GPT partition scheme for UEFI". The other setting should set themselves but I've included a screenshot of setting I use just in case. The label can be anything you would like.

 

 

Good luck, I hope this helps!

In the process of downloading and preparing your Windows ISO, I advise you to use Sandman's guide to add the drivers and touch capability during Windows installation so it can spare you so much time and effort.

Follow the link, and carefully follow the steps in order.

I think the problem may be that installing this version of Ubuntu (I believe it's been withdrawn now) corrupts the yogabook bios and makes it unable to remember setting changes.

As I understand, this affects devices with a particular bios - some Lenovo but also some by other manufacturers and a particular release of Ubuntu. It has been discussed elsewhere on this forum - relating to some of the Thinkpad range as  I recall - but the only way of dealing with it on those so far, short of replacing the motherboard, was rather drastic ie: replacing or reprogramming the bios chip. (At least that was as far as I read.) You may need to research elsewhere to see what methods may help deal with this problem. It's likely that there are very few Yogabook users facing this issue whereas there will be more with laptops that have been certified as Linux compatible.

 

I may be out of date, but I think attempts to install Linux on Windows Yogabooks have not been successful - even when it does run there are no drivers to support some of the hardware, in particular, the Halo keyboard and create pad.
