You can order a system disk from Lenovo. Probably the cleanest way of doing it. Othewise, you'd have to install teh O/S from a generic Windows disk and go to Lenovo's site and get all the drivers.

When I power on I get a er17 then it shuts off.

This error usually means a serious configuration issue with the installed operating system. If you have files currently on the hard drive (pictures, documents, etc.) that you must have, and you don't have a backup of these files separate from the hard drive on the laptop, you may need to have someone with PC knowledge remove the hard drive from the laptop and recover the files manually for you. Otherwise the usual advice is to 'restore' your original state to the laptop, which generally erases all files on the current hard drive and restores the laptop to the way it left the factory. See Laptops and netbooks Flex Series Flex 10 Notebook Lenovo Lenovo Support US or Laptops and netbooks Flex Series Flex 10 Notebook Lenovo Lenovo Support US for examples of how to restore your laptop. Consult the owners manual for which process is best for your machine.

Hi. Trying doing power drain. All you need to do is remove the charger then the battery after that press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. After that put back the battery and the charger and check if it works. If the problem persist you can call the toll free number of lenovo. Check this website for the toll free number of lenovo for your country link
