Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - MBR/GPT disk problem (or BIOS/UEFU)

Q: Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - MBR/GPT disk problem (or BIOS/UEFU)

Hello there!Would somebody be so kind as to tell me how I am able to turn off UEFI mode in BIOS of my Lenovo IdeaPad Z570?(I can see very few things and options in the BIOS menu at the moment.)It's necessary, since I'd like to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium to my computer and during the installation process there is an error message - while choosing the partition where to install the system: "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."And I've read somewhere that turning UEFI mode off would solve the problem.By the way, I'd appreciate any other ideas or suggestions to solve this problem.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - MBR/GPT disk problem (or BIOS/UEFU)

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.)

A: Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 - MBR/GPT disk problem (or BIOS/UEFU)

There are two solutions for your problem.WARNING! Both the ways that I suggest will ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR HD! If you have anything you want to save, copy it before doing it.First, easy, is to erase all partitions from your disk via windows installation utility. Then, windows will offer you to convert disk to GPT.Or, if windows doesn't do it in this 'automatic' way, you can convert disk to GPT using diskpart.For this, use this manual to access console http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/682-command-prompt-startup.htmlThen, type following commandsdiskpartWait until it loads, and thenLIST DISK <-- this will list currently connected disks, you should determine which of the disks is the one on which you want to install windows and remember its number.SELECT DISK <0> <--you should replace <0> with the number you had on previous stage, in most cases, it would be 0CLEANCONVERT GPTCREATE PARTITION EFI SIZE=200 OFFSET=1024SELECT PARTITION 1FORMAT FS=FAT32 QUICKCREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=<size_for_win_partition_in_megabytes> OFFSET=206848SELECT PARTITION 2FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK That should be all) After this, you should be able to install windows on your hard drive.

Couple days ago, my hard drive went bad and I installed new hard drive and Windows 10. In addition, I try to update BIOS to the latest software (45CN38WW.exe) but during update the BIOS program froze. I kept the laptop on overnight but it did not finish, so I was forced to restart Windows. Now laptop turns on but no video on LCD. I know there is a special process to recover corrupt BIOS, with USB drive and some ?Fn? keys. I will appreciate any help, thanks in advance.

Dear Members,I am in trouble with my  Idea Pad Z570: I bought it couple of years ago running Windows 7. During the years of usage I had no trouble at all. With Windows 10 beeing released, I upgraded and it starts to make a lot of troubles: Bluescreen directly after boot or sign in, no WiFi, ... all the known stuff. So I decided last week to downgrade to Windows 7. But now, I am even in a bigger trouble:I tried to boot the Windows 7 from DVD and it crashed into Bluescreen saying: Windows Error 0xc0000225Restarting is not helping. So, i tried to go into BIOS to boot from another device,but I do not even get to BIOS or UEFI. So, thats a kind of Deadlock: I cannot boot from Harddisk because Windows Error 0xc0000225 appears and I cannot get into BIOS & UEFI because the Windows error 0xc0000225 comes before getting to BIOS. Hope this description of my current situation is understandable and you guys have a lot of ideas how to fix it. Thanks!TheGooner

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
 
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more

Are you able to get into the advanced boot menu by tapping F8? It might not be listed on the startup screen but it should still be there.
 
If not you can burn a repair disc from any PC with Windows 7. Theres steps from Microsoft Here.

Hi, I decided to upgrade an old IdeaPad Z570 from 2011 with an SSD and 2 GB of RAM (so a total of 8 GB now). Everything went fine, I installed Windows 10 Pro. Then, on my first or seond restart due to Windows Update, Windows started to always freeze a couple of seconds after it showed the login screen. When I was fast enough I could type in my password and hit enter, but the loading dots then froze.I tried safe mode (worked), then decided to boot again - freeze. I then chose to reset Windows via the Windows Boot Options. It did its refreshing and deleting and now I'm stuck even earlier, when Windows says 'Welcome' (but the screen is still black).I decided to reinstall Windows, but a) my USB stick won't boot (exactly the same I used in my prior install) and b) I can't get into BIOS any more. I tried everything, from pressing F2, F12 with and without function key. Then I removed the SSD and put the RAM back to its previous state - still can't go into BIOS.Any ideas?Remember: I only replaced the old HDD with an SSD, replaced a 2 GB RAM module with a 4 GB one and didn't change any BIOS settings etc. Then I put the hardware back to normal and BIOS is not accessible. Unfortunately I cannot say, if going to BIOS also didn't work before the upgrade. I can only say that it worked a couple of months ago.In the meantime I will try to put in the old HDD and see if it boots Windows. Then I could try a reboot into BIOS. Cheers,Michael Edit 1: Booting the old HDD works, will ... Read more

I have an older Ideapad z570, it made a popping sound and it won't power up now either.  I ordered a replacement adapter from lenovo thinking that was the issue as the light on the adapter was not coming on when it was plugged in.
 
After reading some of these boards, it appears I might have an issue with the mother board.  I would like to see abou getting it replaced, but there are no repair centers close to me, and I cannot find any information on Lenovo's webiste as to who I can contact or where I can send it.
And information to this end would  be greatly appreciated.  Sorry to tack on to this thread, but seemed silly to create another one for the same issue.
 
Thanks,

If you have a z570 you'll know that they have a switchable graphic system controlled by a switch at the front of the laptop. However, after a repair by KNOWHOW, this switch is gone - they replaced the base plate obviously with the wrong model parts. Is there any way I can bypass this switch and enable my Nvidia card manually? At the moment it's greyed out in the control panel and I can't use it to play any games.This laptop used to have the switch. The Nvidia card in question is GT520M

My Windows 7 basically blew up and is no longer working. I tried a one-key recovery as well which utterly failed. As a last resort I tried using Windows 7 recovery disks sent by Lenovo. There are 4 disks 1,2,3, and an additional disk. Everything seemed to be going somewhat smoothly, although slow up until disk 3. The screen shows


"Current Item: ApplyOs" "Recover process is running please don't remove your power adapter."

It's been like this for days. The blue bar load bar under it seems to still be running. Tried again, this time with 4 different disks sent by Lenovo. The first 3 disks went a bit faster, but the end result was still the same, getting stuck on "ApplyOs". Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Hello, I just bought this laptop 3 days ago and after 1 day of use it's already not working. After the normal updates of windows 10 an official bios update was shown by lenovo which technically was correctly installed. Then while I was transferring a folder from my local network windows 10 crashed. After reboot it crashed again untill it became stuck in boot menu. I tried everything from changing uefi to legacy but it kept going to boot menu and then I noticed the hard disk wasn't recognized by the BIOS, but the weird thing is that sometimes it loads up untill windows recovery menu so it partially reads the hard disk and then dies again since I can't access c drive from command prompt nor see the hard disk with diskpart list disk command. I also hear a click noise every minute or so when this happens. I don't know what to do. Does anyone know any solution? In case it's a hard disk failure does warranty cover this?Extra info: when I got it out of the box the screen frame was a little bit open on two sides, so could it be that the laptop got damaged during shipping and the sata cable is partially loose?Thanks in advance.

Hello my friends ! A time ago i bouhgt two Lenovo ideapad 100 14 IBY (FreeDos Version) and install Windows 10 on it with UEFI and GPT Partition Table. All works fine until i want to play around with Linux and install UBUNTU Mate in UEFI on one of them.

The Bios don't let me save changes anymore (only time and date !). There was no UEFI ESP and GPT Support since i install UBUNTU and the Bios Menu looks like that:Bios Entries on a blank DiskBootingThe Disk is Blank there is no ubuntu on there (Don't know waht the EFI Entries are no Hardware is connected).

Hi everyone,Just now I tried out having a BIOS password on boot up, making a new password and tried it out for the first time. And it works, after awhile I decided to do a reboot, the BIOS says I have key a wrong password. Could anyone know what is going on with my laptop? Now my laptop is unusable due to the BIOS boot up password required......anyone has a solution for this? 

A:Lenovo ideapad U41-70 BIOS LOCKED

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problem you have encountered.  If the password had previously work then make sure you are typing it in correctly.  Passwords are case sensitive and you may have used UPPER and lower case letters in your password creation.  Double check your Caps Lock key as well to see that it is set correctly.
 
You can also try a static discharge just to insure the issue isn't a keyboard problem.  To do a static discharge, just do this...
1. Shut down Windows and unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. (If removable)3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that doesn't resolve the issue then there isn't much else you can do.  Since laptops are frequently stolen, there is no master password, hardware jumper or back door that can be used to clear a BIOS passworded laptop.  This is by design and the solution is to replace the motherboard of the system.
