    Hello everyone. I have a Lenovo G50-45 that i factory reset a couple of days ago because it was running very slowly... After a couple of minutes, the computer restarted and continued to the Windows installation. Instead of compleating the installation however, it got to 64% and then restarted multiple times. I left it on overnight just to be sure, and sure enough in the morning, it was still at 64%. All that happens is the Lenovo boot up screen for about 15-20 seconds, a black screen for 20-30 seconds, a quick flash of the 64% compleated screen and then it shuts off and restarts the process. Ive tried almost everything; pressing buttons, letting the battery die and then recharging it, and even trying to boot from a USB, however there is no screen to select how to install Windows 10 and i have no idea how to get there... Please Help!

    When i got my new purchased laptop I didn't have a OS, what I did was download the OS installer from the microsoft website and installed it on a SD card. Do you have any other kind of USB device you can use? Is possible the one you have has some problems. Try using the installer and a different usb device. I used a SD card with a USB adaptor.

    Read above lol.

    I dunno the specifics for your pc, but google your brand laptop and check the bios options for booting usb. Go here and download this.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    It should be what you need to create a Bootup device for installing windows 10 on the system.

    You can use a DVD-R or any flash storage device to make it. Just follow the instructions and after is done, use it to boot the installer.

    Make sure you have the windows 10 activation key in case it ask for it.

    The link I provided is enough, is hosted on the microsoft site and is a all in one tool for installing it on a CD or USB flash device. :P

    Ok now it's not going to the boot menu again. Also, can I boot from an SD card or do I have to use a USB?

    Spam F11/F12 while booting your laptop up. Boot menu should boot up (I never saw a laptop which boots to it using Fn key)
    Format every partition, don't leave anything unless you want problems later on. Also, you need 30GB of available space on C:// drive.

    Shouldn't it be "FN+Action" to trigger it instead? Like press fn+f12 to turn up brightness and f12 without fn key to take a screenshot in-game etc.
    My old Acer Aspire 7540G works like that.

    Yeah, I guess. Dell is weird lately with their hardware.
