AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH Laptop stalwartly resists booting Linux. After about 10 attempts Spouse took over but all he's accomplished is that it will boot from the hard disk when first started from USB installer. We can't go back to Windows because destroyed that with first install (because I wasn't going to use it, right? Windows 10??)

@irina If you have a windows key stuck to the bottom you should be able to download a Win10 installer and install that. It's been a while since I've tried that.

@q_aurelius Going to try that tomorrow. Lenovo website doesn't recognise the serial number, though.
