    Unmountable boot volume


    I got a new laptop 3 weeks ago, and now after a hard restart i got the Unmountable_boot_volume error.

    When i power up it sits loading for 15 mins before i get the message something is wrong. It then proceeds to a new restart where it says starting automatic recovery, then the screen goes black (still powered on) and it stays like that until it gets a hard restart again. (I tried leving it like that for 8 hours)

    It's a Lenovo U330, so there is the "novo" button. When i choose system recovery there, the same thing happens.

    Is there a fix for this ? I do have another computer with win 8 i can create bootdisc from if that will work. I can always return it, but rma takes around 1 month and would be a waste of time if there is a easy fix for it.

    I tried to use a bootdisk i made on a different computer, but the problem stays the same.
    Made a rma on it, i can update when i get it back in a month if anyone's interested.
