    As soon as you turn it on press either key. It's also possible the USB isn't bootable.

    Hi! according to: https://support.fixmestick.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001753213-List-of-Boot-Menu-Hot-Keys
    lenovo laptops may access the bootmenu via "F12" or by keeping: "fn" depressed while tapping: "F11"
    (Remember what key works because you might need to tap the same key 2 times more to choose "UEFI-BOOT MANAGER" etc. during the install)

    Try these options.. And make sure you do not have "Safe boot" activated in BIOS!

    If that helps try checking windowsguides.eu for help! (the drive is automatically erased and repartitioned i correct manner in seconds)
    and so on...
    But in your position i would try the above keys first..

    What program are you using to create bootable images on the pen drive and DVD?
