    The item was given to me, unopened from its box, by a friend who now finds they no longer have original intended use for it, which was related to professional IT. For a start I just want to get the machine to boot up but I’m not getting much beyond a Lenovo screen and the BIOS setup utility, after playing on the F keys. Got to a screen where it was set to launch Windows 10, but just ends up shutting down after lots of black screen time.

    I am only very modestly tech savvy, have a lot to learn, so easy-to-follow explanations would be appreciated as how I might get this machine to actually boot into Windows.
