Failed to do a clean install on a m.2 ssd

2019-04-02, 19:42 PM

Hello. I recently bought a m.2 ssd because my HD was to slow. 

I used Media Creation Tool to make a bootable usb and installed the windows, but a problem appers when I try to boot the PC.

It gives me a error code: 0xc000000e when I try to boot it, saying "A required device isn’t connected or cannot be accessed". So it gives me 4 options:

1 - press enter and try again (doesn't work)

2 - press F1 and go to the recovery menu (doesn't do anything, computer just restarts and it shows me the same error again)

3 - press F8 for Startup Settings (also doesn't work, screen just starts flickering when I press F8 and nothing happen)

4 - press ESC to open Firmware UEFI settings (I click it it opens the bios I closed it and computer starts normaly, but the error keeps showing up every time i start up)


I already try to fix the issue using Troubleshooting, but it can't repair anything

I also tried to update the computer using the same pen drive that I use too install the windows, but it gives me the error: 0xc1900101 - 0x20017.


My computer is a Lenovo Y700-15ISK

My BIOS version is CDCN54WW.

Something I think it's weird, on BIOS my Windows Boot Manager is the HD WDC, even tho i'm booting with the SSD
