Solved Lenovo Y410P will not boot

Lenovo Ideapad y410p black 14" notebook...

Specs: Windows 8.1, I7 2.4 / 8192MB
I have a Lenovo Y410P that will not boot. The BIOS only sees to PXE boot. It does not attempt to boot from the Windows 8 installation disc, or from the hard drive that I reinstalled Windows on myself. I can boot to both of these on other computers, so I know they are not the problem. I'm thinking it's BIOS or motherboard related, but I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

✔ Best Answer
So you used another computer to load Windows 8 on the hard drive?

What are the boot settings in the BIOS?

Yes I used a different computer to install Windows 8 on the hard drive because the security settings weren't allowing me to on the Lenovo.

I triple checked the BIOS settings and there were some differences. After making EFI and Legacy changes, it now sees and will boot to the hard drive. Thanks!
