A couple days ago, I got a BSOD and now my laptop has not been able to boot properly.

It gets stuck on the Lenovo splash screen, then a couple seconds later it shows a Boot Drive not Detected screen and it doesn't give me any options for a drive to boot from.

I've tried unplugging the internal battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds, tried removing the SSD drive and putting it back in, and have tried selecting Legacy Support in the BIOS settings. When I ran bootable diagnostics for Lenovo, it said Storage was unavailable to be tested - however it did pass all the other tests.

Is there anything else I should do or anymore information I need to provide?

Thanks!

Hmm, when I ran the Lenovo Bootable Diagnostics, it was an ISO on a USB drive and ran just fine. However, it still didn't pick up the SSD storage drive.

Well that part makes sense as some SSD's need to be formatted for the MOBO to recognize them
