STOP 0x0000007F (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
After rebooting the laptop everything works normally with the original BIOS. Just as if the BIOS update was never attempted.
I have read the link you sent on the above STOP message and it seems to refer to "double fault" but I do not know what to do with it. As I mentioned, after rebooting, everything works fine but the BIOS has the old version (61ET37WW 2.06)
I do not understand what you mean by "Maybe you've not changed an AHCI mode after BIOS update?"

I managed to solve the problem by first downgrading to a lower version of the BIOS and only then upgrading to the last version.
After the downgrading, I booted up and got a dark screen, and to overcome that I followed the instructions of a previous poster pressing a key. Then I upgraded to the last version (3.12) and everything worked well after rebooting.
This 2 step approach seems a little scary but it worked.

I hope somebody out there at Lenovo has something to contribute on this subject but I feel those of us with the problem are stuck in the mud for now.
I love your suggestion...a BIOS to fix the BIOS...that's funny, I don't care who you are!
