After starting I get information that

status - initializing
speed- o bytes/Minute
After about 15 minutes ( error code 0x80004005

Hello and welcome to the forum.
After taking off and putting back HDD windows do not boot.
Why did you remove the hard disk?
Was it exhibiting some problems or symptoms that caused you some concern?
I would recommend inspecting the connections to the disk and confirm that it is seated properly and that those connections / cables (all laptops have different configurations) on both ends are properly in-place.

It's possible that you may need to enter the BIOS (System Setup Utility) and return it to "Defaults" OR "Optimized Defaults" you may find options worded differently.

I agree, when you take a hard drive out, the Bios may lose the correct primary boot device, so check that. If you did not modify the drive in some manner while it was out, it should return to normal operation.

First make sure that the HDD plug is fully pugged in properly and that it sits in its slot correctly! After that try and get into the IdeaPad 310’s Novo Button Menu

To get into the Novo Button Menu do the following:
  • Reboot the computer
  • Wait for the ‘Lenovo’ logo
  • Then, the ‘IdeaPad 310’ has a ‘Novo Button Mnu reset slot, it's right next to the headphone port. You need to stick a needle or something really thin down it for the ‘Novo Button Menu’ to appear.
  • Get into this menu and choose the BIOS setup or Boot menu first then do a System recovery.
The BIOS or the Boot menu might be set incorrectly (which I doubt) but if they are set correctly, then, do a System recovery and see if that resets your system? See here for BIOS setup and correct settings:

Note: taking the “cmos” battery out could corrupt your BIOS and it will have to be re flashed using a usb stick with a flash BIOS from Lenovo here: https://www.drivers-lenovo.com/lenovo-ideapad-310-15isk-laptop-bios-update/ (if they have a dos bios flash) if not, go to: BIOS Mods at this link: https://www.bios-mods.com/ and see if they have anything on the Lenovo IdeaPad 310.

You should always make a copy (and have it available) of your BIOS name, type by doing this, go to search and type in 'dxdiag' which will give you the exact name and type which you will need e.g. like this in the 'dxdia' BIOS: insideH2O Version03.71.48V1.13 which is what you need to identify the exact BIOS that is running on your system

This is just a brief article from BIOS Mods on

BIOS Recovery

The chance for BIOS corruption is a readily understood risk. An improperly coded BIOS file, a bad flash routine, a power failure, and a variety of other problems can occur during the update.

Even after a failed flash, a potentially dead motherboard can possibly still be recovered. Most BIOS manufacturers (Award, Phoenix, AMI, and Insyde) now include an option known as Boot Block protection. The Boot Block sector is write protected, thus it can only be damaged if the flash utility is explicitly directed by a command line switch to overwrite this EEPROM memory range. The Boot Block can load the most basic BIOS functions for the simple I/O operation of ISA video, floppy drive transfers, and keyboard input. Luckily these features are all that is generally required to rebuild the entire working BIOS.

The instructions below specify using arbitrary names (like bios.fd) for the recovery information. In most cases you can determine the correct file recovery name for your machine by using Andy P’s SLIC tool from My Digital Life. This will help you determine the correct recovery name for your BIOS when you load it into the tool and will also help you make sure you correctly identify your BIOS type (Award,
AMI, Phoenix, Insyde, etc.)
Download: Award/AMI Tool
Download: Phoenix/Insyde Tool
The most important is to find out the exact name and type of BIOS that the IdeaPad 310 uses. Hope this helps and cheers
