    I'm using a lenovo laptop that is stuck starting up, but there is some detail i need to go in to...

    So I started getting this error about "Defualt Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed". I proceeded to follow some steps to fix it that had worked for someone else. Here are the steps i had followed exactly:
    step 1 ) Power on your laptop

    Step 2) Enter into Bios Setup

    Step 3) Goto Boot Tab

    Step 4) Highlight Boot Mode, press Enter, swap from "UEFI" to "Legacy Support". Under that Swap UEFI to legacy First

    Step 5) goto EXIT tab and highlight Exit saving changes . Press Enter.

    Restart Your Laptop

    Now, after I had restarted my laptop, I am got stuck on the Lenovo starting screen with the little dots going in a circle, it had gone nowhere for 2 hours.
    I was using windows 10 before all this happened, As much as i hate to mention it, i started punching it the same day all this started happening, it was because of league of legends rage XD

    After all this i would now get a blue screen that says it ran into a problem, STOP CODE: BAD SYSTEM CONFIG INFO

    I then proceeded to follow someones advice and try starting up in safemode, i got the same bluescreen error.
    So at this point i decided to goto onekey recovery and restore everything back to its original settings, but after 3 long hours it was still at 0% and 0 bytes/minute. I knew that the onekey recovery was broken so i force shut it down by holding down the power button. Now that I try to start it up, it gets stuck in a loop, its shows a screen that says this:
    Intel UNDI, PXE-2. 1 (build 083)
    Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation

    This Product is covered by one or more of the following patents:
    US6,570,884, US6,115,776 and US6,327,625

    Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Series v1.38 (06/16/15)
    PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

    PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.

    After about 5 seconds, its changes to the lenovo booting screen, just the lenovo logo, and that stays for about 20 second, and then it goes back to the screen with the text, and so on so forth.

    Sounds like you damaged your hard drive by physically abusing it. You may need to buy a new drive and hope that's all you broke.

    It's still a duplicate thread to your other thread, you can add info to that thread. As such I will close this thread.
