Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

huberste,

Share this hibernation options discussion with you. Not sure if it helps you but at least give it a try.

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

Hi Huberste,

I would really appreciate some direction on how you managed to do that clean install. I got a u410 and repartitioning messed up th whole raid array. So I tried a re-install and Windows always hangs at 21% drivers expanding. And since yesterday I cannot even get into the BIOS anymore!

Any advice would be MUCH appreciated.

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

Oh, for not being able to enter BIO I cannot help you. Maybe try using the Fn-Buttons together with the F2 button, that helped me sometimes. Also just start the Ultrabook with the Backup-Button, this will give you the chance to go to BIOS.

 

This became a real mess.

at the moment i have completely deactivated the RAID in the BIOS, as i've installed three OSs on my Lenovo U310.

 

But to the clean Install: I've had installed Win7 Professional, and had to use the Drivers on disc D (labeled "LENOVO") during the installation process for the setup to find the devices. Then killed all partitions and repartitioned the "virtual Drive" (the "Raid" of SSD & HDD) (somewhat 100&150 GB or so, OS & Data). worked like a charm, i think.

 

Tele-Supporting is always a bit of a hassle, o sorry for not being more accurate. Also, my last "fakeraid" installation is several weeks back now and I don't remember for sure. Just try stuff, you'll surely find out ;-)

 

greetings from Germany,

huberste

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

Hi Huberste,

thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately neither Fn+F2 nor F2 by itself work, neither does the recovery key. I got so desperate to install this thing that at some point I disabled UEFI boot in the Bios and since then cannot get into the Bios anymore. Since the whole Laptop is completely sealed there is no way to open it up and manually reset either.

If at least I could get the stupid thing to install, but like I said, loading the RAID driver won't help, still Win 7 install crashes when the drivers try to get expanded to about 201%.

Now you write:

"...BootIt NG (GParted didn't exactly to what I wanted...)..."

I used GParted but with no sucess and it looks like I am not really enough of a geek to understand what I am trying to do anyways. Would you mind sharing how you partitioned the drive in NootIt NG?

Thanks!

BTW - originally from Germany too, so we could have this discussion in Deutsch, but that might help nobody else here...

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

Whoah, i've had totally forgotten abaout that BootIt part...

I think, Windows installer would've done the same, but I dind't want Windows7 to make that nasty 100 MB boot Partition, and it doesn't make it when you pre-partition the HDD.

The Problem was, that  gparted (Ubuntu Live CD Partitioning tool) wouldn't partition the "raid"-drives but only the HDD separately. But, as I said in that earlier post, I've not been able to install any linux distribution on the raided (and thereby cached) HDD anyway.

 

For your Problem, i think, you should first take care of the BIOS Problem. A Computer that cannot get into it's BIOS (UEFI in this case) is pretty much worthles, I suppose.

 

And for that installing-to-21% problem: Sorry, can't help you there. Never encountered such a problem.

 

So, I think it would be your best bet to go ask any local Computer expert or send the Ultrabook in for support.

 

Greetings,

huberste

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

I think that my mistake was to use GParted to delete all partitions and thus removed the EFI partition as well that apparently the laptop needs to even get into Bios:

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

Ho about more info? What exactly is your Problem? Have you any driverless hardware in the device manager? Have you installed & activated "Intel Rapid Start"?

Re: IdeaPad U310 - no hibernate after clean install

BIOS settings have not changed, only the Partitioning, when installing drivers were listed Intel ® Rapid Storage Technology. All drivers are installed from the official site Lenovo. When you try to enable hibernation
$> powercfg-H ON
Hibernation failed with the following error: The request is not supported.
The following items are preventing hibernation on this system.
         The system firmware does not support hibernation.
