Preferred Solution: Lenovo yoga 2 pro windows 8 not booting

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.)

Try and boot with charger plugged in. If this works try installing the latest updates you may have restart and install more than once so be patient. If this doesn't work check with your device maker.

Hi guys,I fresh reinstalled windows yesterday and allowed it to collect updates overnight, including drivers.This morning I wake up and powering on the machine, I am greeted with a recovery screen. Selecting exit and continue brings me back to the recovery screen.I tried refreshing it from that screen, though it asks for recovery media, of which there appears to be none, even when I have a properly configured and bootable recovery media USB key inserted.As a recovery bootable device I use a lexar 8 gb USB drive. The machine has no optical drive.The only thing I can gather is that USB and or legacy boot mode are not enabeled.As I am totally blind, I have very little knowledge of the bios of this particular device, and any decent explanations are scarce.I know how to get to them (press f2 for bios and f12 for boot menu I believe) though anything else is beyond me.Could somebody tell me what to press at the keyboard to enable USB mode, and or legacy mode, if that particular option is needed?And by the way, for those curious about how I gathered information about the recovery screens, I use an app called seeing AI, which takes screenshots of anything you tell it to, and tries to tel you what it sees.Even with good lighting, the seeing AI app isn't of much use to help navigating the bios menu. Most problematic, I can't tell exactly what order the app sees the options, as compared to what order they are actually in.I would be most greatful if anyone could help, as this is the only ...

Hello and welcome,

You don't say which 730 you have, but the way I read the base specifications they both require a PCIe SSD, not SATA.

Pressing and holding the power button for 15 secs2. Tried with Novo buttonIt didnt work for one whole day. the next day when I powered on it started working as ususal. I am not sure what was the issue. Again couple of days ago I have faced the same above problem. It didn't boot for one full day. I took it to servce center(Lenovo authorized service center), service person examined by opening up back panel. He tried few things and told, theres a problem with mother board, I have to replace it. He's not sure what is the problem. Then Yesterday morning I tried powering on the laptop and its working as usual. My Lenovo Yoga 710 15" 15ISK laptop has become bit unpredictable. My laptop is out of warranty. Any help is appreciated on how to resolve this problem.

Hi All Sorry not sure about the exact configuration of my Lenovo Yoga 2 13 (59432164 or Type 80DM59432164)... Symptoms: System not booting any more: From the initial "Lenovo screen" dark screen not responding...Before that I had a very difficult and long boot with sometimes a "preparing the automatic repair" message...Must say regarding what I red that my harddrive may be faulty as I sometimes hear doggy sounds with VERY slow perfomance (at the time I could sill use it)...It is also possible that I have a virus/malware/rootkit on the system as my protection was also limited during the last months... (...) Unsuccessful attemps so far:Accessing the "BIOS" with "lenovo button""System recorery" option does not lead anywhere with computer "loading files" but going dead (dark screen) again...Not sure about the safe mode start procedure there, but initial try through "BIOS menu" lead to "windows boot Manager boot failed" message (after a "loading files" barre again).Trying to reload windows with a USB bootable device (WIN10 flashed on USB with rufus) and the appropriate change to my BIOS (with Lenovo tutorial) leads nowhere again (brief windows logo appearing on screen going dark very quickly and not responding...) From there I tried to load different freewares bootable on a USB device to analyse my harddrive SEATools... not working and leading anywhere... Any help please is very welcome

We use a variety of model of laptop and workstation and build them using Microsoft ConfigMgr (SCCM), using PXE boot to get into Windows PE, where SCCM then applies the image and software.We are finding the Lenovo units take a long time (between 7 and 15 minutes) to proceed from when we start the PXE boot and when the unit loads into Windows PE.  It sits there saying "Loading files..." and thats where it sits for that time. Lower spec'd models, such as DELL 7xxx series, proceed much quicker.  We are using Secure Boot, with UEFI when we PXE boot.  We use same settings on DELLs when we PXE boot. If anyone is also experiencing this issue, we would love to know a fix, as it is adding build time to what is otherwise a fantastic unit.

I am having an issue with our Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga's connecting to our MDT 2012 server.  When I boot to Windows PE and try to connect to the deployment share I receive the message, "no networking devices found on this machine!."  I was able to find a link to MDT drivers on the Lenovo site https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht074984.  I have imported this driver into MDT and created a selection profile. I have ensured that the driver is in the boot image.  I have also tried injecting the drivers manually while booted into PE.  Just for good measure I even tried the drivers for the Think Pro One Link Dock and for the USB to ethernet dongle.  I have researched the web for solutions on this issue and tried all that I have found thus far. Oh by the way I have even totally recreated the MDT server from scratch and I still have this issue with the Yoga. I have other models of Lenovo computers and I can connect to the MDT server in PE on these machines.  Any advice or assistance would be highly appreciated as I am under the gun to get this up and working.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

After upgrading to Windows 10 almost three years ago, my yoga would not work. It wont boot and I can not access the bios. I brought it into the shop and they can not find any issue and said its started fine for them. Waste of my money.

Hi everyone, I have a Yoga 11 with Windows RT OS installed. I was using it as a tablet for editing some text and viewing some images.For a while, there is not enough space to install updates and even can not operate appropriately. I started deleting all unneccessary files, until I have nothing but system files in my HDD. Now, I want to reset it to factory settings without any update to save some space. I created a USB recovery disk, but everytime I try to reset, it is asking for installation media to be inserted. I can see, there is a recovery partition but I don't know how to re-install from there! Would you please help me to find a solution? BTW; I searched every single topics in that forum and MS links are not helpful for my problem since all recovery images in MS web sites are only for Surface products! Best regards,

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop just over a year old. My Autistic little man was happily playing Roblox when it crashed. He turned it off and on again and the laptop says repairing disk errors and just stays like that day and night. So I have bought Windows 10 on USB as it doesn't have a disk drive but and I stupidly thought it would be as simple as plugging it in the USB drive and hey presto it would be fixed. But it's not.

Could anyone explain the steps I need to take to fix it as I promised my son I'd get it done by now and when you set an Autistic child's expectations and you don't meet them, woe betide you!

Hi  I have recently purchased a Lenovo Yoga 910 -5K and preloaded with Windows 10 Home. I need to upgrade to Pro for business needs and have read some concerns about functionality not working after upgrade.  I have not yet unboxed, and want to do this correctly from the start. Can you provide a step by step process to do clean install and avoid loss of apps or tablet use. I had in the past previously upgraded 8.1 to pro on another machine but not from start and also lost use of windows apps - another reason for upgrading my entire computer.  Do do not wish to have any initial problems.

However, with passage of time, altought the speed is still good but when compared with the speed when it was new, it is bit less. May be it is because of cache files etc.  On mobile in similar issues, I always use Clean Master app. I found out that same can be installed on Windows too using emulator.

I have just installed Win 8 on a Lenovo Yoga 2 11 Laptop.

Originally l updated to Windows 10 and the machine completely freaked. Having struggled with an ISO image on a USB stick of Windows 10, l've reverted to reinstalling a fresh copy of Windows 8, which is what the laptop originally came with.

After installing Windows 8 and restarting the machine it repaired D Drive then machine shut down, and upon restart it is just stuck at "Getting Ready".

What should l do as lm getting frustrated, having been stuck on this screen for 5 hours now?

I have a brand new HD that l could install and attempt the installation on, but would appreciate any help or suggestions first.

Many thanks in advance.

What is on the D: drive? Is it a part of the same disk as Windows C: or is it a separate HDD?
Try restarting and see how it goes. If you restart a couple times, you will get the advanced menu and can try a Startup Repair.

iI searched first on install problems with Netflix on Windows 10, but all the threads were old and I was told (suggested) to open a new thread.

I purchased a Lenovo Yoga 900 recently and have been enjoying it. Still getting to get over the hump learning Windows 10.
I have two Windows 7 machines which I am comfortable with, but still honestly, being a programmer, I still LOVED Windows XP.

When I try to install the Netflix APP ( got the latest from Windows App site ) , the first popup asks me for my Windows email account (I do not have one, I use Outlook2007,gmail,yahoo) But even so, there are no options on that pop up except to close. Then the Netflix app install windows says working ...... .... .... ... That goes on and on. I have left it like that over night and it still never does the install.

Is there any trick to installing the Netflix app on Windows 10? Right now the only way I can use Netflix is to bring up my browser and starting it that way

A:Installing Netflix on a Lenovo Yoga 900 with Windows 10

How about install Netflix online ?

Open your browser, search for Netflix > enter your email address and password etc etc.

That was what I did..... install Netflix on line instead of Windows Store.
