Hi and welcome,
check boot sequence in BIOS
BOOT Sequence should be look like this
1. USB DVD/CD
2. USB Harddrive
3. HDD (internal)
Configuration Site in BIOS
setting for SATA is AHCI not compatible mode (slow)
be shure you didnt have any peripheral device plugged in (USB DVD/CD Burner) ..
a mailfunction or inserted dvd that could not boot , could invoke a seek loop...
you could approve the harddrive with Lenovo Hard Drive Quick Test
if there is a malfunction or error with your HDD ...
call your local service
