Yoga Pro 2 - BSOD/Disk Drive not Detected

2017-05-24, 19:57 PM

A couple days ago, I got a BSOD and now my laptop has not been able to boot properly.

It gets stuck on the Lenovo splash screen, then a couple seconds later it shows a Boot Drive not Detected screen and it doesn't give me any options for a drive to boot from.

I've tried unplugging the internal battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds, tried removing the SSD drive and putting it back in, and have tried selecting Legacy Support in the BIOS settings.  Any other suggestions?


Thanks!

Hi KaelGK

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Try checking on the BIOS if the SSD boot drive is still detected.

Running bootable diagnostics would help identify the issue.

 

Alternatively , you can swap the SSD to another pc to test detection and image integrity.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards

Unfortunately, I don't have another PC that will accept an SSD drive from my Lenovo.

Also, the Lenovo Yoga Pro 2 doesn't have a CD drive.
Could you give any further instructions on which bootable instruction to use as some say all my data will be wiped?

Hi KaelGK , 

 

The link would be able to provide ISO link that can be placed on USB media and not only in CD.

Data lost informed would be in part of the USB you are using but not your ssd data. 

 

If you like to secure your data first, you may get a SSD enclosure to back up on another machine.

 

Ones in question here is the SSD physical integrity else data image so data backup should be your first concern before any repair steps to be done. 

 

 

Regards

Sorry for the late response, but I was able to get the diagnostics to work. Unfortunately, it says storage is unavailable to be tested. Does this mean by SSD drive is irreparable?

Everything else I was able to test (Audio, Processor, Display, Display Interfae, Memory, Motherboard, PCI Express, and Video Card) passed however.

Also, if it is relevant, I am pretty sure I may have gone over the amount of storage allotted for the drive.  Could that have caused an issue too?

Hi KaelGK,

 

I think you just need to get another SSD for the machine to check if it would be detected by the BIOS.

 

With the SSD, better to check it slaving it to an SSD drive enclosure better we say that it is dead. 

OEM SSD specification page 27: 4 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB.

 

Regards
