It's recognized - USB HDD is listed. Also simple format might not be enough to make it bootable. Download Rufus, which will proces ISO image and create bootable USB flash drive.

Re: Lenovo Y700 15ISK start up issue

Alright, so I used Rufus, made the bootable USB and reinstalled Windows. Since all my old stuff was put back into a Windows.old folder, I was able to retrieve my things from there and save them in the portable harddisk. My laptop is more or less back to normal.

 

So, I suppose the issue has been resolved? As you said, something must have been corrupted but I'm not sure if reinstalling has solved the issue. In any case, a temporary fix is better than no fix at all and I'm in the midst of an exam period so I'm grateful my laptop was salvagable at all.

 

Thank you for your advice, it was very much appreciated!

Run CrystalDiskInfo and check, if there aren't any warnings.

I don't think there is? Right?

 

I've attached an image so you can see the status.

I don't see anything alarming. Can you share the rest of parameters?

Parameters looks fine, but I would advice to make regular backups for next week or two, just in case if issue appear again.

So I have the same computer with an almost identical issue that began yesterday as well.  I've been following this thread, and I've managed to make the Hirem drive and back up my files to the computer.  I'm trying now to do a full factory reset, plus cleaning my files, but I anticipate it will not work since it didn't work when I tried it previously (without cleaning my files).  I used the link you posted to see if Lenovo offered a one use recovery system image for my computer, but my serial number says "Cannot find Recovery Media for this machine".  Should my next step to be to call Lenovo support and try to get one from them?

You can send an e-mail to Lenovo and ask for support.
