Yoga Book preparing automatic repair stuck in a loop.

My Yoga Book (Windows) will not start up.  It says "Preparing Automatic Repair" then goes to a black screen.  After a few minutes, it might come back with a boot attempt, but then goes back to "Preparing Automatic Repair." I have had it less than a month. It seems to be stuck in a loop. When the screen goes black, I can't tell whether or not it's or or off or doing anything.


Please advise.

Re: Yoga Book preparing automatic repair stuck in a loop.

Well unfortunatly there is no easy fix for that problem, and the fact that it is in that loop points to a possible hard drive failure.    Windows is basically trying to repair the files it needs to boot and is failing, and although your system is basically brand new, even new hard drives fail sometimes right away due to manufacuring problems, so you should probably contact Lenovo Support at  1-855-253-6686and open a warranty ticket to get it repaired.    


It could posssibly be caused by a virus, but that is less likely on newer Secure Boot enabled UEFI systems such as yours.


Good luck,
