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.)

Hi. I have a Lenovo P50 that after doing recent Windows 10 updates, it now is not booting properly. When it boots, it brings me to a boot menu that is completely empty. It does not detect the hard drives, any external usb/hard drives, external DVD, etc. from the boot menu. If I run a diagnostics, that detects the drives for example, and all results come back fine.  If I try to go in to the BIOS and edit anything in the boot order, that too shows nothing. Also, the network boot option shows nothing.  I cannot figure out why there are no boot options appearing and why I also cannot even boot of a USB if I wanted to.

Hi Guys,

I am trying to fix up a computer for a friend of mine who has windows XP SP2. It boots up ok, but after logging in, I can't see the contents of C: or the start menu.

Logged into computer in safe mode as Administrator and I could get a RUN box there. Managed to get an IE window and a network connection, downloaded ComboFix.

So when I turn on my lenovo u410 laptop I get this menu box up as seen below in a black background. I've played around with the menu and I get nothing. This has been happening for the past few days and usually it manages to get past this and start up normally. However today is the day it's decided to stay put and I have no idea what to do. This is very frustrating as I only bought the laptop less then 2 months ago. Please help!     It's windows 8 btw

Hi N_A,
 
Thanks for posting and welcome to the Lenovo Community,
 
I?d like to guide you in a way to try to set the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) inside the BIOS to be the first priority booting order so we will try to return the BIOS to factory default settings:
 
Step1: Please turn off the machine and then at the left side you can see the NOVO button which is the button with the curve arrow
 
Step2: Press on the NOVO button and then you will get option press on BIOS Setup
 
Step3: Please press on FN+F9 together and then press Enter on Yes option and then FN+F10 to save and exit and then press Enter
 
Hope the information helps. Let us know.
 
Regards

Hello,
I am having problems with direct booting into Windows 8 installed into a VHDX file.
This is a four-partition UEFI boot on a GPT drive. EFI files are residing on a second partition of disk 0 (the ESP partition) in the EFI folder. The boot virtual disk is residing on the fourth partition of that disk 0.
When I turn on the PC, it shows black screen after the BIOS POST screen. No Windows 8 boot menu, no other information is displayed. However, if I press Shift+F12 (or F12) to start Dell BIOS Boot Menu and choose Windows Boot Manager from the UEFI part of
the boot menu, Windows 8 starts to boot without difficulties.
How do I make Windows to boot automatically without having to select Windows Boot Manager in DELL BIOS boot menu?
I believe I messed up with boot sector somehow... What needs to be fixed provided that Windows 8 will boot into VHDX file?
Thank you.

Well this is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given...

Hola, so I recently downloaded the W8 consumer preview, formatted, installed it, then installed w7 on a separate partition. Anyways, when I boot up I get the old, unappealing cold war era windows 7 boot menu. I'm just wondering if there is a way I could enable the new boot menu as I'm on a touch screen and would like to boot it up without having to go get my keyboard.

Thanks.

A:Windows 8 new boot menu not showing

The problem is that Windows 7 installation replaced part or the whole boot environment.
Microsoft recommends installing older Windows versions first to avoid boot problems.

However problem can be solved:

Download and install Visual BCD Editor - Windows 7/Vista. The tool comes with "Dual boot Repair" utility.
Run it. Click "Automatic Repair" and confirm. This will place the Windows 8 boot environment in control and set Windows 8 as default boot entry. The new graphic boot-menu should be there after reboot.

Only latest version 0.9.3.1 of the product recognizes Windows 8. (Earlier versions recognize from XP till Window 7 !)
----------------------------------------------------------
Note:
You will be not very interested in switching from new graphic style boot menu to old text style but this can be done by adding and deleting an element to {bootmgr} object in BCD.
If element "DisplayBootMenu" is present and set to true => old text style.
Element "DisplayBootMenu" not present => new graphic style.

Hope this helps.

I have recently instaled windows 7 professional 32bit and 64bit versions on same laptop.

to my surprise the boot menu does not display, though its present.

boot options have it on a 10 second delay so i get a 10 sec blank screen.

in that time if i hit <Enter> I get the 32 bit version

if i hit <DOWN ARROW> and <Enter> I get the 64 bit version.

As you can see it works perfectly, but does not display anything.

I suspect its a resolution issue.
both versions of windows 7 work perfectly.

Any hints on this subject?

My computer and my dad's computer are both set like the above. Yet his computer is showing the boot menu when starting up, which only has Windows 7 on it. I used Easy BCD to rewrite the MBR, but that didn't make a difference. My computer doesn't show any boot menu.
In addition to this issue, before the boot menu comes up, he gets a black screen with a DOS cursor blinking in the upper left corner. This screen will only go away if a key is pressed. So far I've seen that Shift and Space work. Letters didn't, odd, right?
Anyway, yet still, another addition to this mystery, is when going to an Explorer window, say Computer for example, the address bar goes wonky. I've seen this on my grandma's computer before and it was caused by sticky keys. This keyboard is new though, so it doesn't have sticky keys yet. Pushing Shift also stops this from happening.

Does anyone here have any ideas to what's caused these issues? I suspect they aren't linked to each other, but I'm not sure.

Hi Kiteman2186,

My name is Tapan. I am from Dell Social Media Team.

You would need to press F8 key for access the boot menu. You can follow be;ow mentioned steps and you would be able to boot to advanced options boot menu.

1. Restart the computer.
2. 2. Tap the < F8 > key on the keyboard at intervals of 2 to 3 seconds at the Dell logo until you see the Windows Advanced Options Menu on the screen.
3. 3. Select Safe Mode from the menu using the arrow keys on the keyboard and then press the <Enter> key.
4. 4. Select Administrator at the log in screen.

Let me know of the findings. Glad to be of assistance.

We recently purchsed some of the EliteDesk 800 G2s and are having a terrible time getting them to see certain usb flash drives to boot off them. I have some PNY Turbo 3.0 drives that boot fine. I needed more, so I got some Kingston DataTraveler 100s and they wouldn't boot. Did some research and saw others were having a terrible time using them with UEFI BIOSes, so we ordered up more PNY Turbo 3.0 drives and now these new ones aren't seen, just like the Kingstons. Try the "old" PNY's and they boot.  I use RUFUS to make the bootable flash with an ISO of the HP restore disc. Did the same process on both and only the old one was listed in the Boot Menu. Has anyone else seen this? Does HP have a tool for these machines to make boot discs? They don't have optical drives so I can't run media creation software, which ironically, these come with the version that only writes to optical discs. Why would they not put the one that does USB media? Anyways, there has to be something out there that will help me make the USB drives show up and boot. This is beyond aggrivating.

i must also mention here that after the installation completed and I log on to windows 7 it changed the drive letter from d to c and and the other one which was showing c in setup menu had no drive letter. i had to go to the disk management to assign it a letter

Now i m getting a OS choice menu, giving me two options one is windows 7 and the other earlier version of windows. and when i select the earlier verison , nothing comes up, just a black screen. and windows 7 runs just fine..

i donot have a second os that is for sure. and I also checked in msconfig's "Boot" menu(as stated in other posts). There too i have only one windows showing up i.e. Windows 7.

Please help me to get rid of this problem....

Hi!
Last year I purchased a XPS 13 and was pretty happy with it until the mini Displayport stopped working and I had to send the device to Dell two weeks ago. Unfortunately they reset my laptop and Windows 8 was the operating system again (I upgraded to Windows 10).
Then I tried to use my system image, which I created before sending the laptop in. This did not work because of Windows 8 instead of Windows 10. I read in some help forums and one person recommended to restart the laptop by using a USB as recovery disk, which I did. I made the recovery disk and entered the BIOS/UEFI and changed the boot order to USB first.
Now I cannot reset my laptop with the USB recovery disk, since the laptop then tells me:
"Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing."
I also cannot change back to the original boot sequence since the HDD is missing in the options. When I enable legacy mode, there is no HDD. When I take out the USB recovery disk, I automatically get to a black screen which says:
"No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility, F5 for system check. I did the system check and it found no error."

Can anybody please help me with this?

Hi,

A couple of weeks ago I got infected by a virus (Bagle?) which wiped out my security software and made my system boot much more slowly. The delay is basically much earlier in the boot process than most of the "Guide to why your pc is slow booting"-type advice. As soon as the BIOS has finished its display telling me it has found my drives it then just sits there for 2 or 3 minutes before the usual Boot Menu shows up (with its normal 30sec countdown), after which everything is normal. It used to be just 2 or 3 seconds rather than minutes.

Now I had help from another forum to remove the malware and am told my system is now clean. When informed of the remaining delay problem the helper basically said it was now out of his specialty and he referred me here so I am asking you guys for help please.

Further info - Some of my security apps had to be re-installed as they had been corrupted. Since then I have tried booting to the Recovery Console and tried FIXMBR and FIXBOOT but they made no difference. I have also tried AVG AntiRootkit which found nothing.
It is quite possible that the problem could be unrelated to the viral attack.

My system is a Dual Core system, 1024Mb RAM and over 100GB disk space free. Running WinXP Pro SP2. All updates applied.

A:Slow Booting Prior To Boot Menu

Without a specific problem to approach, I'd have to suggest using SFC.EXE /SCANNOW or a repair install of Windows (uninstall IE7 first).

It all depends on what's causing the slowdown - and there's no telling what that is without extended diagnostics. For starters you can look in your Event Viewer for errors - and can use the Microsoft BootVis tool (although it's use isn't supported in XP) to figure out what's causing the delay.

OK. My computer multi-boots to Windows 7 & 8 right now. 8 is on an SSD.

I am thinking about adding another HDD, moving 8 to the new HDD, and installing Windows 10 [Technical Preview] onto the SSD. If I disconnect the drives with 7 & 8 during the install, then add them to the boot menu after, can I make the computer boot to the HDD with 8, have that boot menu default to 8, with 7 & 10 as options, and if I make the computer boot off the SSD default to 10 with 7 & 8 as options?

A:Boot Menu & Multi-Harddrive booting

I am assuming that you have W7 & 8 installed using MBR style and they are both running 64 bit.
With Windows 8 running. Open Admin command prompt and type: bcdedit /export BCDbackup to save your current BCD. copy BCDbackup to somewhere safe.With the HD connected. Download Macrium Rescue disk from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxg...ew?usp=sharing and use: Rufus - Create bootable USB to create a bootable USB stick. then boot up your PC with it.On the first screen. Select Backup tab, select the SSD as source, click "Clone This disk", click next, select the HD as destination disk. Make sure you select the correct one.Shutdown. Disconnect the SSD and connect the HD to the cable that was connected to the SSD. set the boot priority to the HD in BIOS then reboot.If everything boot up as expected. Shutdown and connect the SSDBoot up Windows 10 TP installation media then select the SSD to install Windows 10
NOTE: delete all partitions from the SSD then click next.

A:Lenovo G580 - Boot menu can not find CD/DVD, HDD, or USB's

Okay it seems i have resolved my own issue, i will report how and what i did so anyone with the same issue can try this. Okay so apparently the Bios were setup to only reqister boot devices that had something to do with Windows 8, meaning that the harddrive which was completely empty of any data, had nothing to do with Windows 8 and therefor can't be booted with the current Bios settings. 1. Go to the Security tap and disable "Secure boot" only temp.2. Go to the Boot tap and change "Boot mode" from UEFI to Legacy Support.3. In the Boot tap change "Boot prio" to "Legacy First".4. Reboot and press F2 and check the boot tap for the HDD under "Boot device prio"Done I think that since the HDD don't have Win8 installed it will not show as a boot device unless it is on Legacy Support.Becuz UEFI on the G580 only supports HDD with a installed Win8 OS. I should now be able to reinstall Win 8 - 8.1 to the HDD.

Used my laptop for 10 months. Recently, this boot menu window always showed up whenever I'm switching on my laptop. When I pressed ESC or ENTER, nothing happens and it will keep going into the same window for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, only the system will start as usual. Anyone knows what is the problem? And how to disable the boot menu from appearing during startup?

This happened when I found a screen " a problem occurred so windows need to shut down to prevent damage to your computer.." I quickly turned off the system by pressing the power button. Now when I am turning on my system, it shows the boot/application menu.

I have a Lenovo G580 20157. Preinstalled with windows 8. I installed Ubuntu 16.10 and removed windows completely. When I resized the Ubuntu partition to take over Windows partition everything went smooth until I plugged it in. Now I'm stuck in a boot loop. I have tried every fix, except the bios recovery for Phoenix can't find the bios.wph file. Should mention hard drive was completely erased. Can't do anything now, not even bios menu. Please any suggestion I'll try.

I've been using my lenovo idea pad 110 perfectly fine for a few months until a few moments ago my my desktop crashes and is not responding stating "windows is not responding". I decided to force shut down and restart which led to the problem. After i start my laptop , it is always stuck on the boot menu and which ever keys i pressed it will Refresh back to the boot menu. I tried pressing the "novo" button and enter system recovery and other options but all lead back to the boot menu again? I require assistance to fix this issue and request anyone more knowledgable to assist me in this issue.Thank you very much!

i have a lenovo x230 and its stuck on a screen and all it says it boot menu.  Any help would be great thanks 

A:Lenovo Thinkpad x230 stuck on boot menu

I would need to see it to be sure, but my guess is that the hard disk was logically damaged.  That means the boot record or partition information was wiped out.  It could also be a disk hardware error.  Do you have a backup?

I have a Lenovo  Thinkpad T460s running windows 10. Everytime I try to boot it displays a small blue screen with boot menu and App menu. Within the boot menu, I select my HDD but still no booting. Since the battery is sealed in I cannot use other procedures decscribed previously for other models that had similar issues.  Any ideas on how to solve this?
