    I know what Lenovo states about thatNovo button, but it will not work if you are having issues. It relies on a Recovery partition to work.

    Lenovo NOVO button will work ("to start the BIOS setup utility or to enter the boot menu") even if your hard drive is blank or if you replace the hard drive.

    It used to not be that way with the older units, if you wiped the whole drive clean and installed a image that did not have he recovery partition.

    Next time my wife brings her laptop from work home, I will look at it.
