ThinkPad Yoga Windows Boot Manager

2014-08-04, 15:14 PM

Five or six times now my PC has blue screened and booted back to Windows Boot Manager.  On a hard reboot the PC works ok.  Worrying that there may be a serious failure on the way so any suggestions what I can do.

I work from a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 1 running Windows 8.1 and fully up to date with drivers/bios etc.

run a hdd diagnostic from the Lenovo Diagnostic screen.

1. Restart the laptop, press F12 on restart, this should get you into the Boot menu.

2. Then press TAB, this will get you into the App menu, and in that you choose Lenovo diagnostic, using the direction key.

3. Choose quick storage device test.

4. then choose the hdd and/or ssd for a quick surface scan to see if it is alright.

5. then choose RUN TEST in the option lists.

6. If all your hdd tests pass the mustard, then you should get all PASSED for all the test parameters (provided you selected all the test parameters before you started the test).

hi Jin,

I ran this test and all past except Drive Self Test which is said was "Not Supported"

Does that highlight a problem that may be cause the Boot Manager issues?

 

Regards

Steve
