Welcome to the Forums.
If the reboot loop goes to the Lenovo logo where the white dots goes in circles, try to Interrupt the loading of Windows 8 to enter push-button reset mode (this is like a recovery environment to restore the pc fromr previous working state). To do this, hold the power button while on the Lenovo logo with the white dots going in circles. loading (you need to do this 2-3 times).
If successful, it'll run Automatic Repair and if it fails, you'll see this screen:
Click on Advanced Options and from there you can:
1. Follow this guide to enable booting into Safe Mode, If everything's ok, try to restart the computer in normal mode and observe
2. Do a System Restore to undo the changes
If the problem remains and the steps above doesn't work, the HDD/SSD maybe showing signs of malfunction and you may need to send the unit for service.
Hope this helps

No white dots, didn't even get that far. I solved it earlier today and it turns out that it was a corrupt hibernation file that was causing the issue. Deleted that and everything was good. Thank you for the reply though, it might come in handy in the future for myself or if others stumble across this thresd.
How did you make the test and delete the file when your unit is in a boot loop?
