If you are able to open your laptop, take out the little battery for an hour or longer. This clears your bios, perhaps there is a jumper nearby to speed this up. All bios passwords are gone then.
Next you open your bios and make your cd/dvd the first bootdevice.
Insert your windows and follow instructions. When asked where to install windows you delete all drives and then create a new drive to format and install windows on.
Power on the computer and during bootup holding onto F2 key will lead you to BIOS. Browse to Intel AMT. Change the settings to "Disable". Save the settings and exit. After the BIOS settings are saved the system will automatically reboot.On the power on you will see a message do you want to continue.Select yes.You will need to enter Bios again. Browse to Intel AMT again change the settings to "Enable".Press exit saved settings.After the BIOS settings are saved,and powering on the system you will have to press ctrl-P to configure ME/AMT again.Hope this might help.
If you have the OEM Lenovo XP disc are you have to do is insert and
follow the instruction. If you are using off the shelf software, then
switch the BIOS SATA to compatibility mode, and boot from your CD drive
with the disc in it, and format the harddrive followed by installing
the software.( like Windows XP or the Vista)
did you recreate the partitions you deleted? sounds like there's not a partition on the drive. when you boot the machine press the F1 key. that will take you to the system bios.. then press F9 .. that will set the bios to the factory default settings.. then press F10 that will save and exit the bios. If you have a partition and its set active..you should be able to procede from there. If you continue to egt the error message.. you need to verify the part5ition is valid and active. formatted would help as well..
I suggest if you can try to make a windows update for your system. Then try to make a disk defragment. And try to conduct a full scan of your anti-virus. Then observe your system, if all same problem, I suggest that you format your system.
If you need further assistance, let me know. regards!
