Re: Lenovo S12 not booting (NVIDIA)

[ Edited ]

Hi, on your old HDD you set a password ok...thats independant from your new 500 GB HDD ...

.... S12 (NVIDIA) since January 2011 .... (Also I set a hdd password and forgot it ......WD Scorpio Blue 500gb hdd. I installed it correctly .....went in the BIOS to see if it was detected .....2814M Extended RAM ...  Fixed Disk 0: WD5000BEVT

in your first post you could easy go in to bios to look for new HDD...

HDD is correct recognized , as it should... by the way 500 GB is really no problem for all Ideapad..

Question: Why you dont go in bios and set correct boot sequence ?  Like this one... Smiley Happy

1: USB CD Drive
3: HDD WD500 ....

save & exit with F10 ...

Now you should be able to setup any system... any external drive will be recognized


But a few posts later you say

I can't install a os on it because i can't get into the bios and the multi boot selection menu


that contradicts itself...
