I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 netbook running Windows 8.

I recently had some BCD issues where I accidentally altered my boot entries. However I fixed that and it now boots fine. I confirmed with another user from the support forums that our boot entries are the same if not similar.

After I fixed the issue my PC has had issues shutting down or hibernating/sleeping. I'm not sure if it's related to the BCD issue, but it may be.

Shutting down results in it seemingly exiting the programs (I know because sometimes it will say a certain program is stopping it from shutting down), then it turns the screen off. However the fan still runs and the power light is still on.

Sleep/Hibernate is the same

What I've tried:
Two most common methods seem to be to turn off fast start and bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes

  • I've done both of those.
  • I've also rebuilt the BCD using bootrec and bootsect.
  • I've tried startup repair from Windows Recovery, but that says it cannot find winload.efi (which seems to indicate to me that there are still BCD related issues).
  • I've reset the BIOS.

Any ideas guys? It's a small thing, but it makes things very annoying
