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.
Thanks in advance.

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.

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

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