Issue#133: Lenovo - WIN7 recovery process do n oit complete and loops forever

  • Background:

    have a serious problem running a speech recognition program on my new P700. A debug session with the software manufacturer demonstrated that a new fresh install would be needed.

    Unfortunately my original installation back was corrupted due to strange reasons.

    I was able to migrate my System to Win 10, but the problem with the Speech recognition program subsist.

    I ordered the Lenovo Recovery disks for my P700 Workstation. I purchased a second SDD Hard disk to be able to keep my migrated system to Win 10 and continue to work.

    Following steps were done:

    1. Updated the BIOS with A5KT85A file setup. No problems, worked as expected.
    2. Remove the SSD with the WIN 10 and install a new SSD in slot #1 in the Flex Module
    3. Installation according instructions from the CD's. Went will and installation close normally.
    4. Restart of system and then following happens:

     5. After restart the recovery process will go to the fist step, a black screen will quickly pop up and disappear and some files will load. Then a batch file starts, go through some steps and I could read the following: " no disk assigned, no disks detected" and the batch file exist

    6 Next :

    The system shut down, restarts and go back to step 5 above and will loop forever.


    As I need badly to get to the original configuration as shipped 3 month ago with windows 7 installed, what can I do else. The recovery process hangs and I found no hints on the internet sofar. ?

    As anyone seen this problem during the recovery process ?

    Any ideas are welcome.

    many thanks .... Francois

  • Issue#113375: Lenovo - Issue with Windows Recovery / wrong disks

    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530 with Windows 7. It was acting a little slow, so I wanted to do a clean reinstall of Windows.  It wasn't having any other major problems. I paid Lenovo for a recovery disk. I ran the recovery disks.  It asked me for a product key which I did not have.  I contacted Customer Support who told me I wasn't under warranty and they couldn't help.  I contacted Sales.  They discovered they had sent me Windows 8 recovery disks.  They sent me Windows 7 recovery disks the next day. I turned my computer on and it was asking for the product key again.  I tried to get into the startup utility program by pressing F1, F12, F2, F10, delete repeatedly.  None of them would let me get into the startup utility program.  I turned the computer off again (full shut down). When I turned my computer on again, I have a blue screen saying "Recovery" and "Your PC needs to be repaired" and "You'll need to use the

    Hello, I have a user at a site I was visiting that was having major issues using our company's old Win7 image on a ThinkPad X240 that had been running Rescue & Recovery 4.5. I backed up her files in the Desktop/Documents/Favorites folders and quickly reimaged her machine using our new Win8.1 image, which does not include R&R. After doing so and setting everything back up so she was good to go, she stated that she had some important files in her Downloads folder, which I had not backed up.  However, Rescue and Recovery was actively running every Wednesday on the old image to backup to an external HDD. So there is a current backup from 3/30/2016 on the external that I would like to just get the contents of the Downloads folders, or even a full restore to a different machine would work. The issue I'm seeing now is on any machine running R&R 4.5 that I connect the drive to it is unable to see any backups that were created onto the external HDD.

    Good Day, 1) Hoping for anyone to help me regarding the available driver in this website. I'ved downloaded the:Lenovo Onekey Recovery for Y460pWindows 7 64bit Home Edition 7.0.1230 And it's always "installation failed" even though the setup had finished. I did this with fresh installation and several restart and still no luck.I tried it with two separate laptops = same probI also downloded the 32bit version of it and ofcourse it prompts that it needs a Win7 is 32bit. 2) And how come some drivers from OEM(hidden partition) have higher "Version" than the drivers from this website. Specifically for Lenovo Y460p Windows 7 64bit. Because re-install from initial (which has drivers already), then I downloaded all 64bit drivers here on the website which I thought has upgraded versions. Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you. Best Regards,Jacob

  • Issue#4549: Lenovo - W510 Fan issue

    Hi, I got myself a used W510 around half a year ago.For around 2-3 months now, the fan has been making a rattling noise whenever in use. It was somewhat quiet and didn't seem to affect temps or anything, but regardless I ordered a new fan from China around a week ago. The real issue is, a few days ago my laptop started giving me a fan error message whenever I tried to boot it. I try to take good care of my laptop, so I've cleaned it from dust regularly, so that can't be the issue. Now when I try to start up my laptop, it beeps twice, displays a "fan error" message, and shuts down again by itself. I've always gotten my laptop to start though, eventually, after trying to blow in the fan, or shaking my laptop slightly. It's become more and more difficult to get my laptop to launch, though, which is a real issue because I cannot work without my laptop, and shipping the fan from China will take 2-3 weeks at least. Is there any temporary solution I could try to get my laptop f

    I'm trying to find out if anyone knows when/if lenovo is planning to get a bios update out out for these laptops to address the processor stuck at .78ghz while running on battery proglem. It appears to be an identical issue that the Z510 guys have been fighting with in this 40 page long post. I have confirmed it appears to be a very similar issue as throttlestop will resolve the issue when checking the 'prochot' checkbox, but this is not a viable/safe long term solution to the problem. If we can't get this issue resolve, i'm going to have several dozen of these laptops we are going to scrap and replace and I'm really not wanting to have to do that.

    I had another post going about my problems with Windows 10 upgrade suddenly disabling my Wifi. I ran out of solutions and decided to just erase the computer and go back to Windows 7 with the Recovery Media. I ordered the Recovery Media from Lenovo support. They sent the DVDs a week ago. It was part #00HP879. The labels on the DVDs all say they are for the T430, T530, W530 and a bunch of machine types, none of which are mine. I started out hopeful anyway since the tech support agent had assured me this is the correct media. I followed the instructions - changed the BIOS to load from the CD.Inserted Applications and Driver Disc 1 of 2 and booted up the Recovery program.I answered the questions, accepted the license agreement, etc.The programs then says to insert Operating System Recovery Disc 1 - I do that, Click OK.The programs then asks for Operating System Recovery Disc 2 - again, inserted, clicked OK.The program then asks for Applications and Drivers Disc 1 again.

But on the W530 it actually seems to work as I described above, whereas on the P70 it simply stays at 100%.   Exactly what am I supposed to adjust, and to what new settings or values?
