Z50-75, wont boot after bios update

2014-09-28, 18:06 PM

Hi to all!

I just baught Z50-75 with AMD FX7500, 8GB Ram and FreeDOS. I installed Windows 8.1 Pro, and they pulled some drivers during the installation, and I went to Lenovo sight and downloaded all the rest (graphics, camera, etc.), after each installation the computer restarted normally and all was O.K. The last drivers that I saw on the site were BIOS drivers, and I downloaded those to and it started the installation after which it said:"The system will now restart for changes to make effect", and it did, but, it would not boot up after that, all it did was show me this on the screen:20140928_172237000.jpg

 

 

 

And I tried both of the options (the second one with the Windows CD inside), but it just stays where it is, no effect.

I can enter the bios and change the settings, but none of them seem to work because this is the maximum where it will go, the only difference is when I change from AHCI to Compatible mode, it restarts and than I have a blank screen, I have to use the One button Recovery to get back to this one from the picture above...

I would appriciate any kond of help, please give me some advice.

Solved! See the solution

Thanks for the reply!

I solved the problem, after the bios update, the communication between it and the hard drive was having some problems and that is what caused the boot problem. I solved it with taking the hard drive out and installing it on another laptop, flashed the windows and installed the hard back to my Lenovo, and it worked.

To tell You the truth, I don't really know how that was the solution, but, it just worked, I guess that flashing the windows just helped the hard disk to establish the new connection to bios, as the first one was just corrupt by some mistake during the bios update... 

Now, I know that updating the bios is the last solution that I am gonna ever use, and of course, back up every peace of data I got on the hard drive if it is possible.
