I looking to reformat my hard drive in order to wipe everything. I have a lenovo x220 with windows 7. To reformat, this lenovo requires a windows disk (which I do not have), and refuses to boot off of my windows, rufus made, USB. When I attempt to boot off of it, I get to the boot menu, select the USB and the screen goes black for a few seconds and returns to the boot menu. This is shown here: http://imgur.com/a/5F5a7 (I have attached these photos as well as I don't know which is prefered on this forum)
I have attempted this with a USB made through Rufus, bootcamp assistant on my mac, as well as ImageUSB, with identical results. Additionally I have played around with the BIOS boot settings to no avail. I have attempted with the USB plugged into both USB3 as well as USB2 ports, again with the same results.
Does anyone know what might be doing on here?
