Lenovo Y50-70 0xc000229 error

I have a Lenovo Y50-70 notebook. Last thursday I was watching some videos on YouTube when suddenly my browser froze, followed by a BSOD. After the BSOD I tried to reboot the system but it got stuck at the Lenovo logo. Sometimes it gave me the error "blinitializelibrary failed 0xc0000229" on the top left corner, and sometimes nothing at all. I tried to fix the issue but without any luck, so maybe someone on this forum has had the same problem or has any clue on how to fix the issue.

 

The things i tried are:

- booting windows installation usb

- booting windows installation usb in legacy mode

- reinstalling bios using fn+b button and then power on

- reinstalling v1.14 bios using the fn+b method

 

When booting the windows installation usb in legacy mode it shows me the windows logo but after that I get the message "Your PC needs to be repaired" with the 0xc000229 error.

 

The specs of my Y50-70 (in case it is needed):

- i7 4720HQ

- GTX 960m 4GB

- Samsung 750 Evo SSD

- 8GB RAM

It's the 4k display model.

 

Thanks in advance.

Try formatting the drive and reinstalling the OS via a bootable USB

 

If this issue shows up *Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition* follow these instructions shown in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4ilMAAk1Q8

 

Or you can try turning off Fast Boot in BIOS

I already tried reinstalling the OS. But when I boot the USB it also gives me the error. Haven't tried it with fast boot though. Will try in an hour and reply back with the result.

The current BIOS version I have (1.14) doesn't have fast boot so I assume it's off. I formatted my SSD and tried to boot my windows usb again to install windows, but without luck. I attached a picture of the error screen I get when I boot the usb. I tried this with Legacy and UEFI.

Have you tried using the Novo button System Recovery option? This is a strange issue

Yes I have. When I choose the system recovery in the Novo list it does try to boot my win10 usb but again, with the same error screen.

Well the only way to reinstall the OS is to connect the drive to another computer and installing it through there. There aren't many options if you can't boot from a USB.

Still no luck. I tried installing Win10 on another computer using a MBR partition and a GPT partition. Both with no luck. I didn't get the error message but I did get a black screen
