i've just bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 13'', but had problem with it as it was not resuming correctly from Sleep mode and spontaneously when resuming, I was receiving the following error: Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert Recovery media and hit any key. Then select Boot manager to choose a new boot device or to boot recovery mode.
Trying to solve this I did the following steps:
Finally, after a lot of research and solutions that did not produce any positive result, I've decided to reinstall Windows 10 on this laptop, so:
current partitions listed are:
Drive 0 Partition 1: System DRV 260 mb - SYSTEM
Drive 0 Partition 2: MSR reserved
Drive 0 Partition 3: Windows 212 gb - PRIMARY
Drive 0 Partition 4: LENOVO - PRIMARY
Drive 0 Partition 5: WINRE_DRV 1000.0mb - RECOVERY
According to INTEL (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000022714/memory-and-storage.html), the SSDs are locking themselves automatically to READ-ONLY when they approach the End Of Life, to protect the data on them, and not allowing anymore data to be added.
However, I believe this is not the case, since the laptop is brand new and came completely wrapped up.
Also, the tests with the Official bootable Lenovo diagnostic tools show NO ERROR on the SSD. I'm also able to see & copy the data on it (if I boot in recovery mode, using the Windows 10 Media, opening the CMD prompt and navigating to the Windows or Users folder etc.)
I am really out of ideas and it is amazing that i cannot boot anymore, the laptop became un-usable and I cannot do anything really.
Any support or ideas are highly appreciated from you guys.
