Hi. I think the problem on this one is its either your Harddrive has already failed or your Optical Drive has a cd inside, so double check your Optical drive if there is a disc inside it. If not this issue is also with the operating system, you can try to restore your system by pressing the One Key recovery(OKR) button found beside the power button which has a logo of an arching arrow, but remember to plugin first the ac adapter on your laptop before pressing the One Key Recovery Button and also do not press the power button to turn on your computer because when you press the OKR button it will automatically turn on your computer and proceed with the recovery process. When it gives you some option you should choose One Key Recovery and then choose System Recovery, then factory default and from there it will guide you to the whole process of recovering your machine. If this doesnt fix the issue you could also try using the Recovery disc to restore your sytem t its original settings just like the OKR. Lastly you can contact the tech support dept. of Lenovo, they are open 24/7 and this the number to contact:
US/Canada: Available 24/7 1-877-4LENOVO (1-877-453-6686)
Australia: Available 24/7 1300-557-073
New Zealand: 9am-9pm Mon-Fri 0800-446-833. Hope this helps

change your boot priority. press power button then keep on tapping F1 key until your reached to setup utility. go to boot menu and set your boot priority 1 to your HDD. if compute wasnt able to detect your HDD . then there is a problem wth your HDD, you need to call you manufacturer for HDD replacement if unit is still under warranty

Lenovo g500 bios access


Near the power button there is a smaller button. Instead of power press this button and a menu will appear. You just have to choose BIOS Setup or Boot menu if you just want to change the boot order.

Bios Flash


Are you sure you can't access your BIOS, or the OS selection screen?

In most PCs, the BIOS is accessible by DEL or F2, try to run those steps.
If the OS selection option is gone, you have to use another PC to Google the recovery process, and to execute it I am pretty sure you'll be needing your Opensus liveCD.

BLANK SCREEN FLASHING CURSOR


Ok, here is my next dilemma. I got the install disk and it gets to the point of asking where I want to install windows. The only option is Disk 0 unallocated space with 149 GIGs free. The 3 options I have are Refresh, load driver and Drive options (advanced). What do I do from this point? It says that this computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu. I am stumped at what that means.

I can not boot from window 7 disc?


enter the bios usually f2 or del pressed immediately after turning the laptop on, also look for something on the screen saying press f11(or some other button) to enter boot menu

if you have the boot menu option then you can choose to boot from cd/dvd and windows 7 will load, if you havent you will need to enter the bios and change the boot priority to boot from cd/dvd first

if this helped please vote
