    Bios Not Detected Hard Disk in New FreeDos Laptab Lenovo

    Hi everybody!
    I hope somebody help me...

    I bought the new laptab LENOVO B50-80 FreeDos:
    Processor: Intel Core i3-4005U Dual Core Processor (3MB Cache, 1.7GHz)
    RAM: 4GB DDR3L 1600MHz
    Hard Drive: 500GB Hard Disk Drive
    Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 4400
    Bios: insydeh20 rev 5.0 (without advanced setting!)

    I tried to install the "Windows 8.1", but during a installation i got an error (We couldn’t find any drives. To get a storage driver, click Load Driver.)
    I checked in Bios, and I saw "Hard Disk: Not Detected"

    I thought maybe update the Bios helps solve the problem and searched for it, but in official website I found just an ".exe" file for updating Bios.

    Please Help me,
    I can solve this problem, OR it is the hardware failure and I have to turn back and take a new one?

    Thank you in advance for your attention.

    LOL if you look at the bottom of this page it's the first suggestion on Similar Threads.

    It also says If you have a Lenovo IdeaPad (for example, Z50-75 or G50-80) with FreeDOS.
