The Repair Computer Option is available if you already have Recovery Console installed. From looking at the screenshot it appears you do not, so you will need to access the Recovery console by one of the other two possible options:

To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
  • Insert the installation disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account and click Next.

OR

If you do not have recovery console installed and do not have a Windows installation disk
  • Download the recovery console iso here
  • Burn a CD using the recovery console iso and use it boot into recovery console..

I tried with the disk I got with the comp earlier but it said that it was not the windows installation disk :(

I downloaded the .iso Should I extract it and burn it into a disk? Or should i just burn the .iso into the disk??

You will need to extract and burn it to disk.

Let's make sure the network booting is disabled in BIOS as it can cause the PXE errors.

  • Enter BIOS setup on start up by pressing the F2 key repeatedly at Lenovo screen.
  • Under Boot tab in BIOS setup, set PXE Boot to Disabled by highlighting it using arrow keys, press Enter, use arrow key to highlight Disabled, press Enter, then under the Save and Exit tab, highlight Save and Restart, press Enter.

PCI LAN was it. We need to see if BIOS is detecting your hard drive. Could you please look and see if there is an ID beside HDD in your boot menu options and post a picture of the screen as well?

Thank you,

In the boot order, ODD needs to be first to boot from a CD. Please move it to first in the list and try to boot from the Recovery Console CD again.

I changed the order with ODD on top. When I boot it that way, it pauses and redirects me to the page where we choose Safe Mode, Safe mode with ...., Last config that worked, Start normally

I tried multiple times but the result was the same :(

Let's see if we can check the hard drive for errors.

Using the Bootable USB created with OTLPE that was ceated in this step, boot to the RealtoGo desktop.

Go to Start and click on Run

Type:

cmd /c chkdsk c: /r

After it is done, try to boot your computer normally.

I completed checkdisk and tried booting normally. I reach the Windows XP loading screen and get the same blue error screen for around 2 sec and the comp restarts :(
