So I have a lenovo mini thinkcentre running windows 11. yesterday the OS updated and now all i get is a black screen and it will not boot. All connections are good and the monitor is working as it flashes HDMI and monitor controls but no logo and I tried everything to get it to boot and nothing works. Using another computer i created a boot disk on a USB and then I downloaded Plop onto the USB and tried to boot my PC. It doesn't work. All i have is the same black screen/ What am I doing wrong? How can i get it to boot again?

I think you created the extended partition because of the swap partition. You can also use a file as a swap space to download Plop to USB. That means you can use sda4 as primary partition and custom files on sda4 as swap space. Boot PC, this offers more benefits than using the partition as swap space. But booting also works with extended partitions.
