FLEX 5 boot fail after 4qcn41ww BIOS update

2018-03-17, 11:50 AM

The Lenovo software program recommended a updating the BIOS. I ran it. It flashed the drive and then I got a failure message.   The Flex 5 has not been able to start since and ends with Windows 10 blue screen of death saying it can't find boot device.

In the BIOS it shows hard disk 1 as the SSD drive that I need to boot to and hard disk 2 the HHD drive for storage.   In the boot manager all I see is the HHD drive.   The SSD drive which has the bootloader is not listed as an option.  

 

I think my BIOS got messed up after the faield update.  I can get to the Windows 10 recovery/restore tools.  Can the BIOS be restored or reinstalled from the command prompt?   

 

Any ideas on how to make the BIOS recognize the SSD drive in the boot manager?
