    EFI Network 0 IPv6 (28-D2-44-D0-2A-8F) boot failed


    my son presented me with the above error message on his laptop about 2 hours ago, at first i thought it was the result of a virus, but after googling it the results pointed to the Lenovo forums and all the talk was about hdd crashes.

    i can get a new identical replacement hdd for about $100 and shipped within 3-4 working days, but my real issue is as follows.

    how do i go about getting the original windows 8 OS onto the new hdd, is it possible to download it from the microsoft site and put it on a bootable flashdrive.

    thanks in advance.
