Hi I can't boot my Lenovo ideapad z 560, onekey recovery will not work.
I had been using advanced window systemcare3 to boost the computer, it gave me the option to disable programs, I believe I've disabled a programme in the start/boot procedure.

Cheers Jeff.

Hello. Lets try to Repair It..

 

 

1) Turn on the computer

2) Start tapping/pressing F8 until you see Advanced Options Menu

3) Select Repair Your Computer and press enter

4) Click Next

5) Click Startup Repair

6) Restart your computer when complete to see if that fixed it.

If that did not work, try a system restore.

 

1) Turn on the computer

2) Start tapping/pressing F8 until you see Advanced Options Menu

3) Select Repair Your Computer and press enter

4) Click Next

Did you create your own Recovery Disc?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No I created a restore point.

there's a onekey recovery system built into the computer, but this is also not working.

I think I disabled a programme, required to boot the computer, I hoped that I could enter the bios and reset to default settings.

Im very sorry, but you should have been able to create your own Recovery Disc using the Lenovo Software. I had a Lenovo running on Windows 7 and it gave me that option as well as the Recovery OneKey and a few others.

 

In your case, you will have to call Lenovo to order the Recovery Disc Set.

Hi does this help

Status : 0xc000000f

info the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.
From that error message, sounds like there is a problem with your hard drive. When do you get this error message is it right about you see the Lenovo Boot Screen or after you see the Windows 7 Boot Screen?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

When I see the Lenovo boot screen.

I read the manual re: recovery discs, it doesn't mention anything other than the onekey recovery, from where you can go to a restore point created earlier.

Thats not good, for sure its hardware failure and your going to have to let Lenovo replace your hard drive.

 

Ours had this issue as well, not the same error message, but hard drive got replaced.

 

The only way to access a System Restore Point is using the F8/Repair Your Computer, or on the Desktop/Safemode-F8.
