Yoga 2 11 during factory restore - getting Preload Fail

2017-06-30, 0:57 AM

The hard drive on this Yoga 2 11 died and I replaced it with a new hard drive, ordered a new recovery USB drive.  I boot to the recovery USB drive and it goes through a series of screens installing and updating.  When it reboots when it seems to be done, I get a message in large RED   "RELOAD FAIL"  E902M8WW Magic Game Checklog Fail. 

When I turn it off and reboot, the OS seems to be there, but it will not let me get past the admin login screen - says The account has been disabled.  I have loaded the recovery twice and I get the same result.  Any ideas?
