Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed

2014-01-03, 0:08 AM

Woke up this morning, tried to turn on this laptop I bought just yesterday, got the following message.

 

"Default Boot Device Missing or boot failed
Insert recovery media and hit any key 
Then select boot manager to choose a new boot device to boot or recovery media."

 

There's only 2 options, ipv4 and ipv6.  What's going on?

Solved! See the solution

Hi bigx5murf,

I suppose it sounds like whether BIOS or the boot drive.

Have you done followings?

 

1. Can you go in BIOS setup menu?

    If no, contact Lenovo warranty support to ask help or reurn and replace.

2. In BIOS setup, set BIOS configuration to "Default BIOS setting" then "save and exit." Then system will start booting.

    If still it is not successful, check next.

3. In BIOS setup, change boot device order and put CD/DVD drive as first boot device,then "save and exit. Then

    system will start booting, but this time, the booting will be failed.  Put a bootable CD/DVD media in the CD/DVD

    drive and then power off and on.

    If still it is not successful, contact Lenovo warranty support to ask help or reurn and replace.

4. In BIOS setup, change boot device order and put your internal HDD(or SSD) as first boot device, then "save and

    exit. Then system will start booting.

    If still it is not successful, something wrong on your internal HDD(or SSD), so contact Lenovo warranty support to

    ask help or reurn and replace.

 

If yours is UEFI instead of BIOS, do this just before step 3.

In BIOS setup, set "Secure boot" to "Disable" and set "UEFI/Legacy priority" to "Legacy first."

 

 

When you are talking with a support agent, you can tell him/her what you did here.:womanvery-happy:

 

Update: added in case of UEFI.

Has anyone found a solution to this problem?  I've tried all the rebooting steps and it doesn't help.  The problem is sporadic, but I just bought this laptop a few weeks ago.  Already exchanged it once for the same issue.  Is this just a lenovo defect across all their laptops!?

Re: Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed

Yesterday I received a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. The defects this computer has is as long as my arm. 

The most serious being what you describe. Every time the computer fully powers down it is next to impossible to boot. Blue screen with message of Default boot device is missing or boot failed.

 

When I enter the BIOS the hardware configuration says no hard disk was detected, which I would guess is the cause of the boot fault.

 

Until I can send it back for a refund I would refrain from turning off the computer, but sleep mode also does not seem to work on the yoga 2 pro. Every time it sleeps it won't wake up and I have to hold down the power button to turn it off.

It is simple problem don't worry. I also had this same kind of problem.

 

Just follow the steps given below :

 

step 1 ) Power on your laptop 

 

Step 2) Enter into Bios Setup

 

Step 3) Goto Boot Tab

 

Step 4) Highlight Boot Mode, press Enter, swap from "UEFI" to "Legacy Support". Under that Swap UEFI to legacy First

 

Step 5) goto EXIT tab and highlight Exit saving changes . Press Enter.

 

Restart Your Laptop

 

It'll Work

Welcome to the Lenovo Community AG1 !

 

Since you have a Gateway product I would recommend you visit their website for support issues.  The procedures outlined here to correct a Lenovo problem most likely will not apply to a Gateway computer.  Visit their site at the link below.....
