yoga 2 11 no bootable device

Got my Yoga back in December. No problems until recently. It will restart itself and then it says no bootable device, hit any key. I hit a key and then it says no bootable device - please restart system. It does this twice before letting me log in again. I've reset and updated BIOS. Also did sfc /scannow and it said files were corrupt. Went through the storage and memory test and both were fine. Having some issues with speakers as well. It will make this clicking noise but does not happen all the time and is random. I still have warranty as well. Anything I can do to fix myself or is sending in using warranty less stressful?

Why will no one from Lenovo respond with a fix for this problem?

Re: yoga 2 11 no bootable device

Hi ebalex4242,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.


Sorry to hear that you are also experiencing this issue. Regarding the error message message itself, there is a possibility that it is a HW issue, especially with the HDD.


Things you can try.
• Check BIOS, under Information Tab, look for Hard Disk, it is listed "None" or "Unknown", then it may be a problem with the HDD. Check the warranty status here

• If it is still listed there check these settings in BIOS (You may or may not have everything in your BIOS). Make sure they are set correctly this way.
OS Optimized Defaults : [Win8 64bit]
Boot Mode [UEFI]
Secure Boot [Enabled]


After checking the settings, make sure you save and exit it. If BIOS settings are set correctly and requires no changes, you can just perform BIOS reset (F9 then F10).


• If you have tried everything listed above, I also would suggest performing One Key Recovery (OKR). Either by hitting F2 while booting up or Pressing the NOVO button (Small button near power button). Take note, if you'll be performing OKR, the computer will go back to factory defaults meaning all of the files that you have will be wiped out. 


• If in case you have tried everything I recommended or you fail to access One Key Recovery, then it is really a problem with the the HDD cable or the HDD. In any case, you may contact Lenovo US Support, 1-877-453-6686

Re: yoga 2 11 no bootable device

something i have found out quickly is that it tends to do it towards half battery and it works when you plug it in just fine. -please get back to me, school is starting soon and i need to know if I should get a replacement.

Re: yoga 2 11 no bootable device

Like the others i also have the boot problem. The hard disk has a bip sound when the computer is started. But shows "no bootable device. Press any key" and repeats itself again and again and again. 

I also have changed another working hard disk from another laptop and still gives me the same warrning. So i concluded its not the hard disk problem but i couldnt tell what. Help me please!
