    Windows 10 won't boot after taking off and putting back HDD

    Hey guys ,

    Maybe some of you know ways how to fix this problem. After taking off and putting back HDD windows do not boot. My computer model is Lenovo ideapad 310.
    Then i click power button it's starts quite normally just that lenovo logo shows about 1 minute than the blue screen about 1 minute and 30 seconds , after this on the screen appears onekeyrecovery with possibility click on tasks: Restore from initial backup or from use'rs backup . After starting I get information that
    backup location - hidden partition
    status - initializing
    speed- o bytes/Minute
    After about 15 minutes ( error code 0x80004005

    i took out cmos for about overnight , but nothing , I get all the same. I tried click all F buttons its not working.

    On that HDD I have a lot of files , but if wheres possibility to repair computer the files its not such important,easiest way is
    probably just go for specialist , but at now I can not afford it.Maybe some of you know how to solve problem and can help me deal with this , I would be extremely grateful and sorry for my gramma mistakes.

    Dear Angela:
    As this video shows, it's pretty easy to take the hard disk out of your Lenovo 310. If you did that, you could put it in a SATA drive enclosure or drive dock hooked up to another computer and check drive integrity. Unless something really awful has gone wrong, you should be able to recover all your data. Then you can see about getting some help to clean (re)install Windows 10 on that machine, if other repair attempts fail.
    Before doing any of that, though, you should see about booting to alternate media (such as Kyhi's Rescue Disk). I found this item from Lenovo support that you will find helpful in this regard: How to boot from USB disk under Windows 8, Windows 10 - Idea/Lenovo laptops - US.

    You might have a bad connection. Try removing / reinserting the drive and ensure the connector is pushed fully home

    I'm not sure if this will help but when you power back on do you have an option (typically press Del of F2) to enter the BIOS setup. If you can then you may see or not if the drive is actually being found by the hardware.

    On my desktop if I take out the hard drive and then re-fit, the BIOS doesn't recognise it as the boot drive anymore until I tell it this is the one.
