Thinkpad L412 keeps going to rescue and recovery

Hi ALL,

 

i have recently purchased 3 Lenovo L412 laptops, and they boot fine when powered on for the first time, i go through the setup, and then this is ok, reboots and enters windows, after windows updates, and i restart teh laptop, it keeps going to Rescue and recovery, the only way to get into windows is by click f8 and start windows normally.

 

I have spoken to Lenovo and they sent me recovery discs, this still didnt resolve the problem. does anyone know of a fix for this, so i cna resolve this issue wihtout having to return all my laptops.

Re: Thinkpad L412 keeps going to rescue and recovery

Does it go into the Lenovo branded ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery rather than the Windows Startup Repair environment?

Try downloading EasyBCD and pasting in the text from the textbox on the main page.

It should look something akin to this:

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Windows 7
Timeout: 30 seconds
EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\

Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

 


W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U

HI,

 

its the Lenovo Rescure recovery programme, it doesnt let windows boot unless i press F8, ok i have the following from BCD.

 

There is one entry in the Windows bootloader.

Default: Windows 7
Timeout: 0 seconds
EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\

Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Maybe try using EasyBCD to rebuild the MBR (remember to readd the Windows installation to the list)...
