After BIOS update (May 2016) my Thinkstation E31 the startup process stopped after dispaying "LENOVO" and then only the curser was visible. It turned out that the boot process tried to boot via a memory stick (the tiny almost "invisible" one) and so couldn't boot. After removing the memory stick all works like a charm. Hope this will help others. I would suggest that on bios updates this issue is dealt with simply by telling people to remove memory sticks and othe external drives befor the first boot up.
