Hi verneaimable,

I'm glad to help you out with the boot up issue of your Ideapad Y430. Based on the details that you have provided this is leading to a software issue. To address this concern, you need to reload the Operating System of your machine. OS has been corrupted causing you not to boot up on Windows. Lenovo do have this One Key Recovery button that you can use. You need not to worry because I have step by step procedure below making it easy for you to do the process:

Discalaimer: Using the One Key Recovery will put back your machine to it's factory settings. Any important file/software you currently have will be wiped out. You might want to create back up copy first of all your files before continuing on the process.


1. Turn off your compter.

2. Look for theOne Key Recovery button on your PC. It's near the power button.

3. Press the OKR button, wait until your computer turns on.

4. After Windows loading files you'll be routed on Lenovo One Key Rescue System.

5. Select One Key Recovery then, select restore from Intial back up.

Usually it will take 20-30 minutes for the whole process to be done. Once it's finish just reboot your computer. You'll now have the operating system reloaded to your pc. This should fix the issue.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

I was trying to restore my c disk parytition and the power failed. The boot reccord is missing. How to recover?

Since you were trying to "restore", just restart the "restore" process (by booting either from the built-in Lenovo restore-repair-recovery partition, or from CD/DVD) and it will recreate a valid boot-record.
