Lenovo IdeaPad G50-45 Won't Boot on UEFI Setting (BIOS)

2018-06-29, 14:40 PM

Is there any logical reason why this laptop would not boot when set for UEFI configuarion instead of Legacy?

Hi dothackjhe,

 

Greetings.

 

Most likely the Windows image was initially set to MBR partition style instead of GPT for UEFI as one of the common reason.

 

To read more about it, you can review it here.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

I find it odd how I suddenly got this error after a while when I stopped using it (not my main).

 

Is there a chance that the BIOS Setting might have reverted to a default setting as a result of having been fully discharged after some time of not being used?

 

The idea got to me when I noticed that the BIOS Setting did somehow reverted to UEFI configuration whereas it should have been on Legacy. Again, the issue arose after some time of not using the laptop as I mostly only store it.

Hi dothackjhe,

 

Greeting.

 

The settings should be preserved within the boards chip but it may be possible.

As long as you have your data and there is no locked BIOS, I am confident that you can readily reconfigure things back the way you want it, be that legacy running on MBR format or UEFI using GPT partitioning.

 

Regards
