Preferred Solution: Booting the CD... Do not recognize Lenovo T60 HD drive?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I solved the issue....
The S-ATA hard disk must be placed in “compatibility mode” using a BIOS function before
SuSE can be installed or used.

Otherwise the XP disk boor does not recognize the HD..

I'm attempting to boot to a Win7 DVD, but in BIOS I'm unable to set the boot priority to any type of optical drive. The BIOS boot devices menu is the same. I know I can use the USB tool, but that also didn't work. Is there any Lenovo BIOS patch I can apply, or an alternate solution to be able to boot to the optical drive?











Solved!

A:Booting up from the optical drive on a Lenovo H430

Hi, On the Lenovo H505s you have to change a few options in the BIOS to install Windows 7 which requires booting from the optical drive. It's probably the same in the H430 Restart the computer at the white Lenovo (BIOS) screen, hit F1 to enter the BIOSGo to Security tabGo to Secure BootDisable Secure BootReset to setup modehit Yes to "Do you really wish to reset platform to setup mode?" Change the boot options to look for USB devices if you are installing from a flash drive, or make the DVD drive the first boot device. (Select SATA dev 1 not the DVD drive or whatever it's called and hit the - key) Go to the EXIT tabDisable OS Optimized DefaultsSave and Exit. That's now I did it on the H505s, not to sure what impact that has on the OEM installation of Win 8, probably destroys it, so be aware you might not be able to go back after. -Cheers

Back story: my hpe341 desktop (originally with Windows 7, upgraded to Win 10) suffered a HDD crash.   I had two weeks before created a WindowsImage on a USB attached drive.   I restored the Win 7, went through the upgrade process to get it back to Win 10.  The issue: Every attempt (booting to Win 10 and using the Control Panel > Restore or booting from the Windows 10 Repair Disc that I had built results in my being taken to a screen asking ?Choose Your Keyboard Layout? (this on a light blue screen) but keyboard and mouse seem to be not functional.  All I can do is force a power down. I have tried all startups using both USB 2 and USB 3 ports and nothing works. Importantly, the machine worked perfectly under Win 7 and works perfectly now Win 10 in a normal boot process; the issue only arises when I try to reimage with the saved file. The plea: It is frustrating to have the image file saved from two weeks before the crash and now not be able to load it: I suspect there is expertise out there in the Forum that will be able to help me. Thanks in advance (I did searches and wasn?t able to find a post that resolved my query, if I missed one my apologies in advance)

Can you try uninstalling the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver from the Control Panel (icon views) > Programs and Features then reboot and observe if both drives (240GB SSD+1TB HDD) can now be used together normally as other users were able to successully use both drives on their B50-70.

Just got my Yoga 720, a wonderful upgrade to my old Yoga 14. When I first got it I could use my previous 65W and 90W power supplies to charge it. I know it's lower wattage but I leave it plugged in most of the time and am just moving it between rooms where I leave a charger so slow charging the battery isn't an issue. Problem is after it finished all of the system software updates it no longer recognizes any Lenovo adaptors other than the 135W which was shipped with it. I don't even get an error saying "this power supply has insufficient power for this computer" as I've seen on other computers. Nothing, it just doesn't see the other Lenovo adaptors anymore except for the one that shipped with it. I checked BIOS settings, Windows 10 Power options, Advanced settings, Lenovo Specific settings in the OS. i can't find anything to explain why it stopped recognizing the other adaptors. I also can't find any information online where people described similar issues or Lenovo stating limitations on power adaptors for the computer. Has anyone seen this behavior?

Hi, all. I'm new to this forum and to Windows 7, actually, because I just recently had my dad's Lenovo 14001 upgraded from Vista to Window 7 Ultimate. The only reason we had his Lenovo upgraded was because we encountered the "0xc00000e9" problem (i.e., the one that says "Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt... status 0xc00000e9"). Upon advice that it'd be best to upgrade to Win 7, we then upgraded his PC last March 30, 2013. After Win 7 installation, everything was fine. We didn't encounter any problems. Then just now, or a week later (April 6), the PC could not recognize any USB. I have a flash drive and a mouse here that light up when inserted to a PC. But now they won't light up. I checked Disk Management to see if the flash drive's "found" there but there's only the Local Disk [C:] and the DVD Drive [E:]. I've googled answers and tried suggested remedies, but none so far worked.

So I'm thinking (we're not techie persons and we use our PC for office and business work, so sorry if my wild guess sounds stupid), since the PC is around 6 years old, maybe the problem's in the actual PC unit? Lenovo 14001 is after all an old unit--i.e., unlike laptops today, it has no webcam or bluetooth, etc., and it shuts down unexpectedly when it gets too hot.

Any help would be appreciated.

It used to hibernate on lid close and no longer does. Now, when I close the lid, the computer just keeps running, the LCD backlight even stays on. I tried taking it apart but didn't get very far, it's well built. The model is newish so it doesn't seem like there are diagnostics out there to find where the lid close switch is and nobody else seems to have this issue. Thoughts? Support? Much appreciated.

I'm in the process of moving to an SSD and need to create a backup drive in order to repair the BIOS after transferring everything. However, when I try to create one - the create a recovery drive program won't recognize the flash drive I have connected as a flash drive.

I first tried with a SanDisk Cruzer which apparently had a quirk in that it shows up as a hard drive instead of removable flash drive. That seems to be well documented on forums all over the place and there is no fix.

So, I purchased a cheap 8 GB stick (no brand) and Windows (I'm running 8.1 x64) recognizes it as a removable disk. However, the create a backup utility still won't recognize it. I've found some random fixes that have worked for some (such as plugging it into a different USB port) but nothing has worked for me so far. I've tried doing it with the "copy the recovery partition" option both checked and unchecked.

If there's no solution to this wonderful "quirk" of Windows, then is there something else I can do to repair BIOS? Seems like there's not a fix to my problem out there...

EDIT
So as of right now, I tried using HPs recovery software which seems to do the same thing as copying over your entire recovery partition. That didn't work either. However..when I had both USB sticks plugged in the Windows supplied utility recognized the SanDisk Cruzer when I checked the "copy the partition" thing...so this might be solved.

A:Create a recovery drive won't recognize flash drive

You might save yourself a lot of aggravation by down loading a free copy of Macrium Reflect, you can make a Disk Image that can be restored to any drive it will fit on. or just copy/clone to your SSD. just make sure your current drive doesn't have more data than will fit on the SSD, Reflect will adjust the C: partition size

The recovery USB needs to work they are not created equal if Reflect doesn't recognize it get another one that will. I can't help you with the other program you are using Reflect is known to work for everyone.

My Lenovo Laptop recently has stopped working.It turns on and everything, it just cannot boot up.The loading screen pops up and everything, but it won't go to the login screen.When I power the laptop on, it goes on the loading screen, and stays like that for a good 5-8 minutes, then gets an error message that says"Process1_Initialization_Failed"Then it tries to go into System Recovery, but after "Loading Files" it goes into the loading screen, then transitions into a black screen. There are no options, just a black screen.I wait for an hour, and absolutely nothing happens.I made sure nothing else is plugged in except for the Charger.The laptop is a Lenovo Y51.If you need anymore information, please ask. I really need this fixed soon.

I have a Windows 7 desktop. Recently received error message "excessive environmental temperature". Cleaned out a couple of years of dust. Removed CPU heatsink blew out and reinstalled thermal compound and replaced heatsink and fan. Rebooted and no overheat message, but now Bios does not recognize dvd drive or the HDD. I removed dvd drive and tried in another pc and works fine. I even installed a new hard drive, same problem. I only receive this message: Reboot and select proper Boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key" Ive unplugged and reinserted SATA plugs on both drives with nothing new Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Bios does not recognize hard drive or DVD drive!
