  1. My Hard Drive is visible in BIOS but won't boot.


    I get this specific error: This Product is covered by one or more of the following patents:

    US6,570,884, US6,115,776, and US6,327,625

    Realtek..........

    I've researched about this error and people mostly say that the hard drive won't boot and the computer is trying to boot through network which can be caused by hard drive being faulty or it being loose (which mine isn't).

    Is there a way I can solve this problem without buying a new hard drive?

  3. Help with external hard drive

    Hi Debbra,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest in windows 10 and also for trying the troubleshooting steps to fix the issue. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    I would suggest you to plug in hard drive then check in disk management you can see the drive or not.

    Follow the steps to check Drive in Disk Management.


    • Go to the Control Panel then click on the
      Administrative Tools. .

    • Under the Administrative Tool Click on Computer Management.

    • Click on Disk Management and check the External Hard Drive.

    Also check in BIOS whether External Hard Drive is listed or not.

    For help with the BIOS settings, refer to the computer manual or contact the manufacturer.

    If it doesn’t work then, I would suggest you to update BIOS for updating BIOS contact Lenovo Support.

    Follow the link:

  4. My Hard Drive is visible in BIOS but won't boot.

    Windows 10 1909 Causes Secondary Hard Drive to not be Recognized

    Installing the Windows 10 1909 Update causes my secondary hard drive to not be recognized.

    Steps to confirm issue:

    • Secondary drive not visible in Windows Explorer
    • Secondary drive not visible in device manager
    • Secondary drive not visible in disk manager

    Steps to replicate issue:

    • Installing 1909 update

    Steps to resolve issue:

    • Uninstall 1909 update

    Since updates can only be delayed for so long, an actual fix would be appreciated.
