Lenovo Won't Boot To Disc - No Option On Splash Screen

Feb 10, 2013

When I restart my computer on windows 7, there's an option to hit F12 to chose boot options. I got a computer with windows 8, and now that option is gone! How do I get it back?

PC Model: Lenovo G580

By the way, ignore my system specs. That's my desktop, I'm talking about a laptop.

Setup Installation :: Lenovo G580 Laptop / Unable To Boot To Disc?

Feb 10, 2013

I was having problems getting to the boot menu of my Lenovo G580 laptop earlier.

I figured out how to get the boot menu - But my only options are hard drive, LAN v4 and LAN v6 boot - Nothing about a disc. So I went into the BIOS boot priority menu and set disk to #1 - It still booted to my hard drive!

Computer Will Not Boot Up Past The Windows Splash Screen

Apr 8, 2014

I'll start my computer, it will post and go into the BIOS just fine, it will always get past the screen right after the bios (with the motherboard logo and the windows spinning dots) and then it will go to a blank screen of blackness. It's had this problem off and on for a while, and I put in a new power supply about 2 weeks ago and it fixed the problem but now it will only boot into safe mode.

It has no problems in safe mode and I have not seen it BSOD once.

This has been happening for a couple of months now, and it used to be sporadic on the old power supply, but then it always happened, and now it seems to be happening all of the time now as well. Oddly, if I were to disconnect the ethernet cable it seemed to boot up better on the old power supply, but it doesn't matter what I disconnect now, it doesn't seem to want to boot up past the spinning logo thing before you actually get into any kind of windows 8.

Toshiba Splash Screen At Start Up - Windows Partition Not Detected

Apr 28, 2013

PC crashed, I get Toshiba splash screen at start up then nothing. With recovery stick I can get tools but cannot use them... I get either missing partition or hard drive locked message. I can get to command prompt though where it appears that the partition containing Windows is not being recognized at all...the size of the partition is not even showing up. This all started when I returned to my PC to find it unresponsive and had to power it off with the power button. PC was working fine for months after upgrading from Windows 7.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Hangs / Freezes Splash Screen

Oct 31, 2012

I am having trouble installing windows 8 on my PC. So I slow burnt the ISO as I always do, and verified the contents. Now I always do a clean install never an upgrade. When I boot from DVD I get to the windows 8 logo and my DVD drive and hard drive seem to be loading files (although this edition has no load progress bar like the previous windows which is annoying) after several seconds i get the animation of the dots twisting but there's no activity?

The disc stops reading the hdd does nothing and the splash screen continuously mocks me it just doesn't get past that screen. After several attempts I thought I could try an upgrade from desktop instead. After a successful upgrade my pc reboots and gets stuck on that same splash screen it just doesn't want to get past that screen. I have looked all over the forums and googled various keywords to find others with this problem and have had no luck. It is noteworthy to mention that windows 7 runs perfectly with no problem on my PC and I am attempting to install the 32bit version I have tried widows 8 an windows 8 pro with no luck

My specs are as follows

HP Compact Presario SR1719UK
-AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 2.20ghz
-ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series (Approx total memory is 287MB)
-DirectX 11 with WDDM 1.0 driver

Setup Installation :: Installing Never Gets Past Post Splash Screen?

Aug 23, 2013

i bought an Acer Aspire M5 for school and wanted to do a clean install of windows 8 to remove bloat ware. I installed it using legacy mode from a usb boot stick. I than learned about UEFI and how it is a better option. So i followed the guide here, used Rufus to remake my usb boot. I put my bios into boot from usb hdd in UEFI mode, plug usb in. Than my computer goes into an infinite loop where it splashes the acer logo and restarts never getting.

Apps / Software :: App Store Stuck On Splash Screen Until Network Timed Out

Jun 21, 2014

First I was having this issue:

I followed a fix that involved:

1. Press "Windows key + R".

2. Type wsreset.exe and click OK.

I did that and the splash screen came up. I then waited past the suggested 15 mins and then I got this error:

Now every time I try to access the store, it just freezes for a few then pops up with that last error.

New to Windows 8. Don't don't even know how to uninstall the dang app and reinstall it.

Apps / Software :: Splash Screen Displayed But Fail To Open (including Store)

Aug 12, 2014

I have a Lenovo G505s AMD A8 Laptop, fairly new to Windows 8 as this is my first platform running it. Not had the system long, but generally finding it ok except for this one problem thats decided to arise:

All apps, including the Windows Store fail to launch when clicked. They display a splash screen but no loading symbol, the splash screen hangs for about a minute and then the whole app shuts off again. This started with the calculator from what I can see, but now it seems to affect all of them. I've tried multiple theories from several forums and sites but nothing has made a difference.

If possible I don't want to have to refresh or reinstall Windows 8 as I have a fair amount of software I've installed and don't want to have to go through installation all over again.

Setup Installation :: Windows Boot Manager - Deleted UEFI Boot Option?

Mar 24, 2014

After creating a UEFI bootable USB thumb drive with Rufus (using Windows 8.1 Enterprise ISO x64), for a Dell Optiplex 3010 (configured as UEFI only, no CSM, latest firmware version, Windows 8 installed), I didn't see a USB boot option, so I tried to add one manually. Unfortunately I erased the existing boot option (boot manager) by mistake. Although there were two boot options for PXE booting, the machine will not start anymore, even when there is an active WDS server on the network.

I also see Led's 2 and 3 lighting up, meaning according to the manual 'hardware ok but bios possibly damaged/corrupt'.

I understand I cannot start the machine from a bios boot disk because of GPT partitioning, and the UEFI USB boot disk I made might be corrupt (as it didn't show up as a boot option), however I don't understand why it won't boot from the PXE network card, as these boot options are still there.

Apps / Software :: Apps Close Themselves After Splash Screen?

Jun 23, 2013

I'd like to know if any of you guys have experienced this issue where when you try to open a metro app you get the splash screen for it and then just a few seconds later you're sent back to the start screen with no explanation whatsoever. It's doing my head in since I can't seem to find a fix - Google returns lots of posts about this issue coming from the win 8 beta, but none of the fixes I've seen seem to work.

It also doesn't happen with all apps. I can open the Music, Messaging or Games apps just fine, but if I try to open the metro Reader app or the Hulu/Netflix apps I downloaded from the store they just won't get pass this screen.

Maintenance :: Boot From External USB Hard Disc Bigger Than 137Gb

Mar 3, 2013

I have USB external hard disc 320Gb that I use to try Windows 8 since Developer Preview until the latest PreRelease. I boot from this USB HDD to keep internal HDD intact and protected with end point encryption.

It went very well until at some point suddenly I cannot boot from it anymore. All the file is in perfect condition when accessed from other system.

I try to recover with Recovery disc, but found nothing. I delete bootmgr to force corrective action. But still problem not solved.

Later I read that Grub cannot boot if boot loader and file required for boot is beyond 137Gb (128x1024x1024x1024 bytes). But I never read that Windows has same limitation. Anyway I would like to prove that.

I find UltimateDefrag that can move certain files to beginning of the disc. I select bootmgr, boot folder, and Windows folder to be placed in front. It works. I can boot again from my external USB HDD.

I just wonder how to keep those file in 128GiB boundary, it won't happen again?

Lenovo G580 Laptop Won't Start Up - Stuck On Boot Menu

Sep 17, 2014

My Lenovo G580 laptop won't start up. When I turn it on using the power button it goes straight to boot menu/app menu. There are various options there to choose from, but whichever one I choose, it keeps going back to boot menu. I've tried using the novo button, but it still doesn't work. Whatever I choose from the novo button screen, except "BIOS setup", keeps taking me back to the boot menu. My laptop won't start up.

How To Restore 8.1 Without USB Boot Option

May 3, 2014


Win 8.1 USB Recovery Drive
Win 8.1 Full Install Retail 64 bit DVD
Legacy BIOS that does not offer USB in Boot Priority
Internal DVD
USB ports

Question: What would be a secure plan to be able to restore a new disk to a near-current state?

I'm thinking a second HDD and something like Acronis and bypass the MS backup tools. Or perhaps boot from the install DVD and use Macrium Reflect.

When Turned On Lenovo Y410p - Got A Blue Screen?

Jan 25, 2014

When I turned on my Lenovo y410p today I got a blue screen saying:


Your PC needs to be repaired

The Booth Configuration Data file is missing some required information.

File: BCD
Error code: 0x000000d

You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.

The only option I have is: Press Esc for UEFI Firmware Settings

I have 64bit Windows 8. I have a Fat32 external hard drive I might be able to use to recover it - but what should I download? Also, can I try to do something in the UEFI settings to fix it?

Windows To Go - No Fast Boot Option?

Jun 18, 2014

Windows to go doesn't seem to have a Fast boot option -- Not a real issue since I use an SSD for this but just curious. I suppose if Windows to Go is being used on different computers and the idea is to use the external device totally then it obviously doesn't make sense to store a file on the Host PC's HDD.

Anyway two screenshots -- you can see the Windows to Go doesn't have a fast boot option. Ist screenshot is from Windows to Go -- both running Windows 8.1 enterprise update 1 x-64 on REAL (not Virtual) Machines.

Tablets :: Win 8.1 - Lenovo Flex 10 Touch Screen Becomes Unresponsive

Apr 19, 2014

I think this may relate to updating this netbook from Win 8 to 8.1 (but I updated very soon after purchasing so not certain). Basically after several minutes of use, the Touchscreen doesn't respond to touch anymore. I can still use trackpad but no touchscreen.

I have installed latest updates (and drivers from Lenovo site), but still no joy. I've also tried recalibrating touch screen (via Control Panel app) but this hasn't worked (and "reset" option is greyed out).

Lenovo Laptop With Windows 8 - Lost UEFI Boot Manager After Installing XUbuntu

Jan 26, 2014

I have a Lenovo laptop that came with Windows 8 pre-installed. I decided I want to dual boot with XUbuntu.

I shrank my partition and left space for the linux distro. I installed xubuntu into the free space, and even set the bootloader installation to be in that partition as well.

Then after installation, I only get the GRUB bootloader. How to get Windows 8 back and I finally be able to boot into either OS.

However, I have lost the blue UEFI boot manager that Windows 8 should display.

So I get EasyBCD on Windows, try lots of options to regain an original boot manager. But instead of the typical blue UEFI screen, it created a black screen with my boot options (and the linux option doesn't boot from there).

So to summarise, my boot sequence is like this:
-Switch on laptop
-See GRUB, with default pointing to Windows. I am able to boot to linux from here.
-Click Windows and then see Windows Boot Manager (black) with Windows and Linux
-Click Windows and it boots. Click linux and get an error.

I have secure boot enabled, and I installed xubuntu in secure boot mode.

Lenovo Desktop Goes To Windows Initial Setup Screen For No Reason

Jul 15, 2014

My friend put his Lenovo desktop to sleep, and when he woke it up, it was at one of the initial setup screens that you see when you first turn on a new computer, or first install Windows 8 - the screen that asks you to accept the Express Settings or to customize the setup.

We could not get out of it, and restarting the computer brought it right back there. So I accepted the Express Settings, then it asked me to enter the Microsoft account info, or to create one. He had a local account only, so I kept denying that screen and finally somehow I ended up at a screen that said something like "use my existing account" although it showed no indication that there was any account.

It then said it was installing my Apps (there are no Metro Apps in use on this computer, other than what comes with Win 8). This took about 3 or 4 minutes, then it did some more setup, and when it was done it was (surprisingly) back at his desktop screen, with all his files and desktop icons just like they were before.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 / Linux Zorin 8 On Lenovo Desktop - Dual Boot Not Happening

Mar 20, 2014

I tried to set up a dual boot, Windows 8.1 and Linux Zorin 8 on a new Lenovo desktop. I setup the partition first in Windows and then loaded Zorin per the instructions here: [URL].....

Everything seemed to go OK but in the end I didn't end up with the grub boot loader, so I can only boot into Windows. Now I ended up loosing 20% of my hard drive which is now unallocated space that I can't figure out how to reclaim into my hard drive. I tried deleting the partition but it's still there and there was no option to expand volume.
