S30 Hangs on first boot of day.

2016-08-11, 7:52 AM

Our S30 Hangs on first boot of the day, every day, before the LENOVO spalsh screen. All lights are on, but no activity. We then long press the power on button to power off. Subsequent press of the power on button always results in a normal boot of the system.

Running W10 with all lastest updates. Lenovo Update is also up to date. LSC reports no problems with the S30.

Has anyone had similar or found a solution.

What is the machine type/model number of your S30? Is your system set to boot the BIOS in Legacy or UEFI mode?

 

If your system happens to be an older 05xx/06xx MTM then you won't be able to boot in UEFI mode reliably with Win 10. You'll need to boot the BIOS in Legacy mode. If your boot drive is partitioned GPT then you might have to boot using both Legacy/UEFI and setting it to boot Legacy first. This might be enough to keep your system from hanging on your first boot.

S30 MT-M 4352-A8G. Boot disk is a Samsung 128Gb 850Pro SSD, Basic MBR partition. Bios set to both, legacy first.

 

I think I might check the setup of the SSD via the samsung setup program.

Since your primary partition is MBR, try setting the BIOS to legacy only.

 

Also, just to confirm, is your SSD connected to one of the red SATA ports rather than blue or yellow? Red is where it should be.

Yes connected to red SATA port. I ran the Samsung performace tool and made a chage to its setup. May be a co-incidence but S30 started fine this morning.

False alarm. One off, back to 'normal' now, in that first boot just hangs, power off/on starts up as normal.

Will just have to put up with in as its an iritation rather than a hard error.

In that case let's get back to basics. What are your exact system specs? Of what's installed, which components are original and which are aftermarket?

 

Can you try booting with only one memory module installed? Refer to the chart on your access panel to confirm that you have a single module in the DIMM1 slot. If you only have one module now then do you have access to another module that you can test?

 

Edit: Also, which BIOS revision are you currently using?
