U510 fails to boot - no bootable device - insert boot disc and press key -

I get the above message when trying to start the laptop.   Is the problem in the SSD, the HDD or Win10?  I tried the 1 Buttton Recovery (twice) and nothing changes even though it says the recovery was successful.  What should I do?

Re: U510 fails to boot - no bootable device - insert boot disc and press key -

Hello LarryLenova

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


It sounds like there will be an issue with the storage drive that windows is installed on wether that`s HDD or SSD, Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal

You can also try to get in touch with your local Lenovo support line and see if you are able to request a recovery media to try.

 

 If these steps do not work I would recommend, that you call your local Lenovo support line for a possible service. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

In addition to Krakken,

 

In the BIOS, can you set the following settings and observe:

 

Security Tab:

Secure Boot = Disabled

 

Exit Tab:

OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS

 

 - Link to picture

 

Update us how it goes.

You suggested obtaining a Recovery Media - will a Recovery Media help if I ran 1 Button Recovery and it was successful? I did that - does that mean my HDD has failed? I'll try the BIOS fix just in case - I'll wait for your answer before I buy another HDD.
Sincere Thanks!

Larry, i would recommend contacting Lenovo service centres and applying the normal phone techniques to get it replaced promptly or assist you further.
