Hello, I have a Yoga 2 Pro that I purchased and registered on Oct 31, 2014.
I wanted a clean install of Win 8.1 pro, so purchased a license, copy of same and installed on the laptop. All good, installed drivers, and confirm I have installed 64bit version of bios v 38.
All was fine for about a week until approx Nov 7, I started having boot problems, the system upon startup would go directly to the windows blue screen with the unhappy face icon, how cute, saying I needed a repair disk. I turned the laptop off and started again, and the laptop would boot up fine and run perfectly.
Then approximately every 5 or 6 boots, I would receive the errors immediately upon startup:
Windows Boo Manager boot failed [ok] I then hit return
EFI USB Device boot failed [ok] I then hit return
EFI DVD/CDROM boot failed [ok] I then hit return
EFI Network boot failed [ok] I then hit return
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 Media [ok] I then hit return
Then the yoga boots normally. This happened several times, then did a complete new reinstall of Win 8.1 pro, and confirm I have the correct drivers installed, with no errors in the device manager. Beside, this is, in my humble opininion, a bios/ssd issue, not a software, win 8.1 pro issue.
The problem persists.
I have seen in a few other messages that are older that recommend changing the hd in the bios to legacy temporarily. I don't see the point, but, I don't always see it all :-)
Any thoughts on this? This is my first post here so not sure if this is a user forum or monitored by Lenovo support. I was looking for a email contact but got lost, and am trying here first before calling tomorrow.
Thanks and best regards,
