Thinkstation P410 fails to boot after BIOS update
I have a Thinkstation P410 workstation and am unable to get the workstation to boot. I recently installed a BIOS update via the Lenovo Vantage software. The installation appeared to complete successfully and it asked me to reboot the workstation. Upon reboot the workstation boots to the Lenovo screen but does not proceed further. No options appear for entering the BIOS setup or for booting an operating system. There are no apparent beep codes. I believe the version of BIOS installed by Lenovo Vantage is S00KT55A.
Does anyone have any suggestions for restoring the BIOS so that the workstation can successfully boot?
Y700-15ACZ R9 card is dead. Possible to install mobo from Y700-15ISK?
Had this machine for awhile. Honestly the Radeon GPU has been nothing but issues. Now, when using the card, the machine will reboot itself. When it comes back up Windows doesn’t even see that it has an R9 chip. I’ve reinstalled Windows 10 a few times. Used different drivers, including those on lenovo’s website. Nothing fixes the problem.
To that end I started looking for hardware resolutions. This machine is out of warranty. Looking at the mobos from the 15ISK, they look almost identcal. All of the connections appear to be the same. The heat sink appears to be the same. Which, from a cost prospective would make sense. Does anybody know if this is a like for like swap? Anybody ever done this? I can get the mobo for around $400. I’m not really willing to invest any more money into this machine than that. Opinions? Thanks!
