Flex 5 1570 Windows 10 corrupt bios?

Hi,

 

I'm working with a Flex 5 1570 Windows 10 notebook. I recently installed the latest bios update and the softwared restarted the PC. When it came back up, I got the inaccessable_boot_device screen. When it restart again I get stuck on the Lenovo "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen. I can access the bios and it is showing the most recent update (4QCN43WW(V2.07)) installed. It also shows I am connected to the hard disk.


I'm at a bit of a loss. I obviously can't boot into windows and run the .exe for the bios, and and I can't seem to find an iso of the bios (to run on a usb) anywhere. I am currently downloading the files for the Lenovo USB recovery creator, but I can't tell if thats just going to reset the os  or the bios as well.

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

What was the reply if any? Does it reset the bios or reset the OS too?

I have the exact same problem.  It strongly highlighted that you must have the correct model for the bios update to work, etc...  Flex 5-1570 was on the list.  I kept it plugged in as requested.  And yes after it rebooted it no longer can see the SSD.  and stays in the "repair" mode screen.   At a total loss on what to do now.   Brand new computer, 2 weeks old.

Hi, I have the same issue. Is anyone working on a new version of the BIOS, or has anyone found the old version that I can revert back to maybe? Thanks,

The following thread describes a similar problem encountered with the Y520 model; try some of the suggestions made there:

Re: Flex 5 1570 Windows 10 corrupt bios?

I registered on the forum in order to help the others that had this problem. I had it and it freaked me out completely until I found the following solution:

 

1) I updated the BIOS and then it wouldn't boot but only the message "Attempting Repairs" that stayed forever. 

2) I tried to to some changes in the BIOS, no effect.

3) Then I returned the settings to System Default in BIOS.

4) I used the niddle (with the laptop off) on the NON button (that was the name of this button?) to enter the System Recovery option.

5) From there I booted the Windows 10 into Safe mode (I pressed option 4 - Safe Mode). Sorry, I can't remeber the exact steps to get to Safe Mode, but it was easy and intuitive to navigate.

6) From Safe Mode I shut down Windows.

7) Once I turned on the laptop again, it all booted up nicely.

8) And I had a peace of mind again. Smiley Happy

 

Let me know if you manage to resolve it. If not, I'll gladly go back and look at the actualy steps I took.

 

Cheers!
