Hi, I think I messed up. I was trying to format the SD Card but I think I formated the boot sector of the internal memory. Please don't say anything, I know and it's punishment enough.
I tried to boot with F10 in order to reinstall from factory default but it does not go into the menu for reinstalling.
Is there any way to fix this. It does boot but it gets into a loop. The only solution I see is to install Ubuntu in an SD Card and point the BIOS to boot from the external memory.
Any suggestions ?
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
Did you try to set your system to defaults:
Please be aware that if the recovery partition is formatted the warranty will be void, you can see the operating system supported here:

You can wait to see if someone else has installed Ubuntu from scratch, they can share how they did it on this thread.
Also, you can try submitting a warranty replacement for the unit at the following link:
Ivan, thanks for your answer. F10 does not work anymore. As said, I believe I formated the boot partition when I went to Disk and tried to format the SD Card. I made this mistake.
Is there any other way to recover the Boot partition. I believe that this partition should be protected and it's not.
I created a boot disl from a SD Card and it works but I would like to have this problem corrected.
Unfortunately if the partition has been formatted cannot be recovered anymore, at this point you can try to request a warranty replacement for the unit at the following link:
