When I power on the y400 its goes to the Lenovo loading screen and underneath the logo it says "preparing automatic repair". It stays like this for hours. I took it to Geek Squad and they said that my hard drive was fried. So I bought a new internal hard drive and replced it myself. Now this is what happens when I power on the y400.
It goes directly to a black screen with a blue box reading "Default boot device missing or boot failed. Insert recovery media and hit any key. Then select 'boot manager' to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery media". When I select ok it goes to a white screen that says 'boot manager' at the top and it gives me the options of picking 1) EFI Network 0 for IPv4 (B8-88-E8-98-A9-3F) or 2) EFI Network 0 for IPv6 (B8-88-E8-98-A9-3F). It doesnt matter which one I select. After selecting either or, it comes to a blue box that says " EFI Network 0 for IPv4 (IPv6) boot failed".
( I do have the Lenovo Recovery Dics 1 through 6) No idea how to use them.
I appreciate any help!

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
The porblem you're getting is a No boot issue
Which may be cause by Computer not seeing a valid Windows bootable OS or HDD is not being seen.
Since yougot the Discs you can follow this to load the recovery CD.
Let me know your findings
