I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm trying to install Windows 8 on my X270 20HN. My BIOS setup is default, except that I disabled Secure Boot and changed UEFI/Legacy Boot to Both (instad of UEFI Only) to make the PC able to boot from my Windows 8 installation USB disk. The Windows Installation window starts up perfectly, and I'm able to confirm the EULA. When I choose custom (advanced) installation there is no partisions / disks shown.Only "update", "disk settings" and "load driver" buttons are shown, and an error message saying:"No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation" I have tried to download all drivers from the Storage tab on the following page, unzipped them and added them to the USB stick:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... However, the Windows Installation cannot find any drivers. What should I do to get the Windows Installation tool find the drives?What drivers should I use, if I need to provide them manually? Thanks a lot in advance for your help! Kind regards,Nicklas

Hello, we are having some issues with changing the TPM from 1.2 to 2.0 for windows 10 installations via a Task Sequence installation. all I'm finding is a way to enable or disable the TPM via WMI. or all the other options need the laptops to already have a suppervisor password configured. I'm wondering if theres a way to simply change the TPM without having to set a suppervisor password.if not if theres a way to do it without any physical intervention on the Laptop.I did find ways to do it if theres already a suppervisor password, but our laptops dont come with one configured by default and everyone has them with windows 7 on them.However the more i read about this the more i see theres no way to add a suppervisor password via any kind of scripts. if anyone could send me in the right direction for this or if they already have this in place, that would help a great deal.thanks in advance !

Hi I have purchased an additional external battery. On my battery monitor it shows Battey 1 and Battery 2 I believe it's referring to the actual battery and the external battery When I charge with the AC mains it says 50% charging. When I remove the AC charger it shows both batteries 100% charged Sorry it may be a stupid question but I am confused why it says 50% charge when I use the AC charger when both batteries are 100% charged Thank you

Hello everyone,I have an X230 and I need to upgrade the laptop to something with an i7 and 32GB RAM.I am very happy with my X230, but I have to change it. From the product page is looks like the X260/X270 have only 1 SODIMM slot. So, my question is: Is there any other slot hidden? Or I am forced to find another laptop (or even worse to go to HP or DELL) for such a thing? I need a very light laptop because I travel a lot and the X series is just perfect.

Dear, I am an IT guy at a MNC and I ordered three X270 in Auguest from a Lenovo re-tailer.after I received them from the vendor, I noticed that I could hear loud fan noise that was usual compared to x250, 260 and even x270 that I purchased a few month ago while I was configuring outlook,. The 3 laptops have been making almost the same level of noise while it's running just windows.  I did not install anything and I ordered them with win 10 pro and outlook was installed as default. Users keep complaining about it cause they used to use x250 but it didn't make the noise like this. the bios update did not make a difference so I could help them so far. Today, I received a X270 that I ordered a few weeks ago from a different vendor and it's definitely making fan noise but it's a bit quieter than the above 3 laptops.  I searched about this issue in this forum and found nothing helpful so I am going to call Lenovo Service Center to send an engineer to compare the fan noise. If you guys have any suggestions, please let me know. I will also keep posted.

First decent review of the X270. All looking good.Lenovo ThinkPad X270 Review by MobileTechReviewhttps://youtu.be/PxGL1vIX_dw"Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad X270, the refresh of Lenovo?s smallest traditional business laptop. The X270 replaces the X260 in Lenovo?s 12.5? Ultrabook lineup, and it?s been refreshed with Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake dual core, 15 watt CPUs and Intel HD 620 graphics. It gains a USB-C port and for a portable this small, it packs a lot of ports including Ethernet, HDMI and a dock connector. The 2.9 lb. /1.3kg notebook has Lenovo?s usual excellent backlit keyboard, an MS Precision trackpad, optional LTE 4G and a fingerprint scanner.The Bridge battery system is back with an internal 23 WHr battery and your choice of 3 removable batteries, the largest of which is 72 WHr and allows for extremely long runtimes. The machine is available with a 1366 x 768 TN panel or a 1920 x 1080 IPS display (both are matte and non-touch). Pricing starts around $800, depending on current Lenovo specials."

I've been having an issue with my X270 laptop since I bought it. The laptop is running Windows 10. What happens is randomly (this can take weeks, or days) the trackpad and pointing stick completely stops working. The only solution is to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them using an external mouse. I've tried various versions of the drivers, including the latest, and it still continues to happen. Any solutions to fix this?

I am just going to guess that computer is trying to boot via USB, so you might try changing the boot order in the BIOS so that Windows Boot Manager or the HD is first.

Answer:Veriton X270 - Windows 10

Hi Scutu The X270 is an older model PC, but as you're running Windows 8 successfully, it SHOULD upgrade to Windows 10. You can: 1. Image your hard drive, so if Windows 10 causes problems you can return exactly as it was, many weeks after upgrading   or 2. Upgrade to Windows 10. you can revert back to Windows 8 by going to Settings>Update & Security>Recovery. Follow the on screen instructions. There is a 30 day limit to do this.

Hello, I have a Laptop Lenovo X270, model 20K5S11F00 and I want to install Windows 7 (64 bits) on it, could that's possible?I can't boot on my Windows 7 installation CD.... Thanks

Answer:X270 Windows 7 64bits

Hey, yes that's possible. You have to install Win7 from a USB device or via network. Required for this installtion is a patched Win7 installer with USB3.0 and NVMe support. But just to know for you, Microsoft stoped the support for Intel seventh (7th)-generation processors (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4012982/the-processor-is-not-supported-together-with-the-wi...). Nevertheless all drivers are avaivilable and working.....it's really annoying that Microsoft is forcing the people to Win10 that way.... CheersTom

Answer:Lenovo E10-30 USB Windows Installation

Hello and welcome,
 
What is the exact message?  Is it "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing."
 
If so, it is often a bad ISO download, bad media, a bad copy of ISO or DVD contents to flash drive, or something similar.  It is almost always not a missing driver.
 
If the message is something else, please tell us what it says.

I'm wondering if i am safe to just clear this space or if its also the windows 7 installation for if i ever need to reinstall, seems a bit big if it is at 17gb, the windows 7 disk i think is only supposed to be about 3gb isn't it? I seen there was also another drive called SYSTEM_DRV, so wondered if this was the backup of the installation? James

Answer:Is the Lenovo Recovery (Q:) where the windows 7 installation is?

Q: is where the recovery image is.  It is larger than a generic Windows 7 install DVD because it's an image of the OS as installed - including the Lenovo modifications, drivers, and software.
 
You can delete it and add the space to C: (or use it as a separate partition) if you wish but you will lose the built-in recovery capability.  Usually one would make a set of recovery media first so there's at least some way of getting the machine back to factory state.
 
Some Win 7 Lenovo machines will offer to make the recovery media and add Q:'s space to C: as a right-click option, IIRC.

Hi emprazol,

What you might need to do is to boot into your current OS and go to Disk Management and look for your SSD there.

Might happen that you haven't installed it correctly.

So, the other day I get a small popup in my systray saying something along the lines of "Reserve your copy of Windows 10," which I did. The actual release isn't until the end of July, I think, so I have time to figure out what to do. My question is, what steps should I take to protect my equipment in case of failure? I guess what I'm saying is that I want to be able to completely restore my laptop to my current configuration, or at least factory condition, in case things go sideways with Win10. Thanks ahead for your insights.

Hello everyone, Since March 2016 I have a Lenovo G50-80 80R0, with i5 processor 5200U, 8GB Ram and Intel Graphics HD5500. I've always used Windows 10 in the factory installation and achieved considerable graphics performance, from 60 to 80 fps in the Counter Strike Global Offensive game. I bought a 120GB Kingston SSD and did a clean install of the system on the new disk, using the original HD as a filesystem. However, I noticed that the graphics quality in games has dropped considerably, going from 20 to 30 fps in the same game. I do not know what might have happened, since I installed all Lenovo-supplied drivers, updated Windows 10 to Anniversary Update, and disabled the Xbox DVR. I already rode the Intel driver update system and also tried the latest version, still in beta. All tested drivers gave the same result, even after the full reinstallation. The current driver version is: Intel Corporation 20.19.15.4501Processor: i5 5200U 2.2GHz 2.19GHzMemory: 8GBSystem: Windows 10 64-bit In addition, the system had a considerable improvement in performance, connecting in a matter of seconds and initiating programs with agility and stability. Although I do not run heavy applications, I use this note for web development and any games. If anyone has any ideas, I appreciate it!

Guidance for Lenovo OneKey Recovery, hidden partition and Recovery DVD (ordered from Lenovo).
" If the hidden partition is destroyed or replaced hard drive, you won't be able to restore the system through Lenovo OneKey Recovery software. You need to utilize the Recovery DVD, read more from below related articles:"How to recover the system to Factory settings with Recovery DiscsHow can I get a system recovery CD, DVD or USB from Lenovo

Hi. I bought a new Lenovo G510 laptop. I downloaded Windows 8.1 from Microsoft DreamSpark, and burned ISO image on a DVD disc. When I try to install it on my laptop, I receive an error (it might be wrong translated): Load Driver A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB, or Hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now. Note: If the installation media for Windows in the DVD drive or on a USB drive, you can safely remove it for this step. I already tried changing the following options in BIOS but no effect:Configuration tab -> SATA Controller Mode from AHCI to CompatibleBoot tab -> Boot Mode from UEFI to Legacy SupportBoot tab -> Boot Priority from UEFI First to Legacy FirstAlso, I tried to insert CD with drivers which was in the box, but - of course - no appropiate drivers were found. What happened? How am I supposed to install a Windows 8.1? What should I try? Thanks in advance for giving any clues and answers

Answer:Windows 8.1 installation problem on Lenovo G510

hi JachuPL,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
From this microsoft article, the error that you're getting maybe caused by one of the following:
 - The installation DVD is removed during the setup process.  - A low-quality DVD was used to create the installation DVD.  - The speed at which the installation DVD was burned was too fast.  - The DVD drive cannot read the media.  - The ISO file is corrupted.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Verify that the Windows 8.1 ISO is not corrupted by comparing the MD5 / SHA1 Hash of the download file to the one from DreamSpark. To get the hash, download and install the Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier and foillow this guide.
 
2. Instead of using a DVD, follow this guide on how to create a bootable Windows 8.1 USB installer and use it to install Windows 8.1. (use the USB 2.0 port on the unit).
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Hi, I have a Lenovo G570 laptop which I had bought from India about 3 years back. After migrating to US last year, my laptop started reporting problems with not booting up. It would simply keep showing the 'Starting Windows" screen. A first couple of times, it got booted after I had spent auto recovery for a couple of days. Sadly, during my purchase of the laptop, I never got a bootable CD from which I could have re installed Windows 7 Home Basic. However, the last time it just wont boot and that is when I had changed my OS from the earlier Windows 7 Home Basic to Windows Professional. However, guess the current windows is not a genuine version and I am getting prompts for that.
 
Accordingly my question is:
 
1. Can I install Windows 10 for free? Otherwise, how can I install windows 7 Home Basic, with my original product key? Note, that though I have a non genuine product installed currently, I do have the original product code of the Windows 7 Home Basic, that I got during my purchase.
 
Sorry, if my query was too long.
 
 
Thanks in advance for your response.

Answer:Lenovo G570 - Windows Installation Question

Hi argha17,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
What you'll need to have is a recovery CD, The reason you did not got it shipped is because the one key recovery in your computer should be able to do it. Anyway should you fail to create one.
 
You can always get the Recovery CD From Lenovo Support Center (fees may apply)
  - Use the Recovery CD to Reload the Original Windows 7 to your computer, You can then Use that as it is or Upgrade it to Windows 10 for Free.
 
Hope this helps
Cheers!

Hi guys, Got Lenovo v370 bought in Nov 2011. Upon booting from windows 64bit installation disc, at the partitioning screen, it tells me that it won't install on that hdd as soon as the system is EFI and the disc is MBR. I highly doubt that system is EFI as it's too old to be. Also the hdd is only 500GB capacity. I double checked all BIOS settings - not a word about EFI/UEFI stuff. OK. Than i decided to convert hdd to from mbr to gpt - but i didn't manage that. Acronis booted from rescue cd says it just can't find a hdd. But i was able to boot from live cd and run acronis disc director from there - but menu option labled 'Convert to GPT' greyed out. Even after i have deleted all partition on that hdd. Updated: finally i was able to convert my mbr hdd to gpt one...but now windows says that:Windows cannot be installed on that disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu. As i understood it completely confirms that this V370 isn't EFI based. But it still doesn't helped a lot. Any ideas? Please advise. thanks,Eugene

Answer:Lenovo V370 Windows installation problem

Hi Eugene,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that the computer is not booting to the new Windows installation menu and HDD is not detected at the time of Windows installation, changing the ?SATA Controller mode? in BIOS should resolve this issue. Below are the steps to change the option and check the issue:
 

Turn ON the computer, before Lenovo LOGO is displayed on the screen. Keep tapping on ?F2? Key to enter BIOS menu.

Note: To check how the BIOS menu looks and to explore its options Click Here.
 

In the ?Information? Tab check if the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is listed in the Tab or is it displaying ?No Device Detected?.
If the HDD is listed in ?Information? Tab, change the ?SATA Controller mode? which is listed under ?Configuration? Tab to ?IDE?.
Then Click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer will automatically restart.
Now try to install the Windows in the computer.

Hope this helps!!!
 
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Answer:Lenovo G510 windows 7 installation problems

hi crisymary24,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Just to check, were you able to capture the BOSD error message?
 
If the BSOD occurs during or after the Installing Windows screen then it's possible that the installation media or its files were not properly copied into the HDD, causing a corrupted OS.
 
If you're using a bootable DVD to install Windows 7, can you consider the following:
1. Using another PC, follow this guide on how to create a bootable legacy Windows 7 USB installer.
 
2. When finished, boot into the G510's BIOS and ensure that USB Boot is enabled (if applicable), press F10 to Save and Exit then press F12 to boot to the Windows 7 USB installer that you created in Step 1.
 
If you prefer installing Window 7 in UEFI mode, check this guide.

If yes, try disabling security boot in the bios. During the installation process, delete all existing partitions before proceeding with the installation. Note: Deleting all partitions will render your chances of restoring OKR feature.

Hi,

Then I downloaded a win 7 version from my university, moved it to a usb drive with ''Win 7 USB DVD download tool ''. I don't live win8 and HDD  Then I started the thinkpad with the usb drive plugged in, pressed F1 to enter the Bios, changed the boot order, (USB Drive on the 1st place), and restarted. Then I got the following screen: When I press Enter, the screen disappears for a second and returns, nothing else, Windows Installation just doesnt want to start, anyone can help?

Answer:Lenovo S440 Windows 7 Installation failed

Hello and welcome,
 
Is that USB drive formatted FAT32 or NTFS?  If NTFS, it's intended for a legacy install.  You'd need to get into BIOS and switch from UEFI to legacy booting.  The HDD is probably in GPT format, so that would have to change too.  Use SHIFT + F10 to bring up a command window during the install and run DISKPART.  List disk, select disk, clean.  Then rerun the install.
 
If you want to install in UEFI mode, format a drive FAT32 and use something like 7zip to copy the ISO _contents_ to it.  [edit] Or just format a flash drive FAT32 and copy one of your existing flash drives to it.
 
Then select UEFI boot mode ( + CSM support if it's an option) turn off secure mode, and see if it boots.

Answer:Windows 10 failed installation on Lenovo Desktop S30 model

For the longest time I couldn't install Windows 10 on my Lenovo S30. The problem was that Windows 10 could not deal with the SCU hard drive port, apparently. Many forums will tell you to open your case and move your hard drive from the blue connector to the red connector. But now there are drivers that will fix the problem. I installed them on Win7 with no problem, and then the upgrade to Win10 proceeded flawlessly.

How do I iron out that issue as pressure sensitivty is quite erratic with it. Only Photoshop cs6 is problematic with pressure while sketchbook pro and manga studio is all good. I tried uninstallling the wacom and hid interface drivers manually and tried installing whatever lenovo provides on their site. All see to work now except the conflict in Manga Studio and Photoshop. I think windows 7 would be ideal to use but weary as the current hdd it takes as this drive is only 40gb.If previous or current owners have a method to correct drivers you'll make a young artist very happy. Thanks in advance.

HI I have a Lenovo T410 laptop, in which I have formatted my hard drive completely including all default drives. Now I have a single partition, when I try to install the windows 7 with the recovery CDs which  I have created when my laptop was working correctly. But it will boot with that DVD but stops at the screen "Loading Windows". Is there any settings I need to change before installing windows 7 to the bios or something. I tried with the other Windows 7 DVD from Microsoft MSDN, even though i am not successfull. Actually after deleted all the drives I have installed Windows XP and it was successful and when I try to install Windows 7 it is not going through. Please anyone suggest me any tips on how to install Windows 7 on my hard drive. Are there any other settings I need to chanage?Thanks.

Answer:Windows 7 Installation on my Formatted Drive in Lenovo T410

The recovery discs that you have created are not Windows Install Discs, which is how you are trying to use them. They are system restore disc. Generally speaking they will reimage your harddrive so that it is what it was when it left the factory. I believe to use those discs properly during boot you need to hit the F11 key to start the system restore tool. I believe after that you will be given the choice of what you want to do from there. I think you will need to do a full restore. Once it is done, your computer's harddrive will probably be partitioned the same way it was when it left the factory. You can use Windows to shrink the partition if you want to create other partitions on the drive.

Hi, I have run into a problem have (Lenovo B570) DOS-BASED. When i tried to install Windows 7 it did not let me do this and crashes within installation.

I am describing in following steps how and what problem i faced during installation
1- I put Windows 7 CD and laptop successfully booted with Windows Setup.

2- While copying windows files to hard disk.
3- After step-2, rather moving on next setup screen, blue window appears have a long error description. The key point in Error message was something like this:
"An unexpected error occurred and setup needs to shutdown" then nothing happens...


2- I have tried with with the replace of ram , I cleaned the motherboard fan too but same result!!!
I am think it need BIOS setting required?


3- I have gone through on some article and someone mentioned there that, on lenovo machine SATA configuration must be set to IDE rather than ACHI(in BIOS)!!!
Can you suggest me how to do the right thing, what should i do?

Thank You.

Answer:Windows 7 installation Problem in Lenovo B570 Laptop

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Check for newer BIOS update.

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI to try that first. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt.You are creating the partition here for the purpose of marking it Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Hi, I have this 4 year old Lenovo Y560(config below)The discrete graphic card has probably fried a long time ago, so last year when I did a clean install of Windows, I had to disable ATI Card permanently in the device manager using safe mode and used the Intel integrated card. A few days ago, I booted up windows only to encounter, "A disk read error has occurred, press ctrl+alt+del to restart" . I tried to boot up using WIN 7 install disc, but soon after the Starting Windows logo , the screen turns black and I am left with a cursor in a black screen. I tried to boot into Safe Mode but still I encountered a black screen with just the cursor . I booted with Ubuntu live usb and was able to access all my partition and did back up and even formatted the Windows Partition. I tried to boot using a WinPe and faced the Black screen with a cursor again. I even reset BIOS to default, changed Graphics Adapter from "Discrete' to "Switchable' and vice-versa, but no effect at all. When I boot up using Ubuntu and ran lspci | grep VGA I can see both cards listed. I even tried to boot up using Windows 10 preview disk, still I get a black screen after the Windows loading screen.I can't afford to buy any laptop presently since I am currently at college, so using Ubuntu for now. Is ther any way to install Windows 7 again? Is it possible to get the ATI Card working properly- reballing, reflow?

Hi - I am having issues updating to Windows 10. Once I get through the download and start the install I am taken to screen that ask for keyboard layout.

I select US and then hit a screen that wants me to choose between Troubleshoot PC or Shut down PC.

Not sure what is happening here but the update is failing at least 6 times a day on its own.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows 10 failed installation on Lenovo Desktop S30 model

For the longest time I couldn't install Windows 10 on my Lenovo S30. The problem was that Windows 10 could not deal with the SCU hard drive port, apparently. Many forums will tell you to open your case and move your hard drive from the blue connector to the red connector. But now there are drivers that will fix the problem. I installed them on Win7 with no problem, and then the upgrade to Win10 proceeded flawlessly.

Hi, I have run into a problem. About two days ago i bought new system (Lenovo B570) DOS-BASED. When i tried to install Windows XP in it it did not let me do this and crashes within installation. I am describing in following steps how and what problem i faced during installation(please note that Windows XP CD has no problem):
1- I put Windows XP CD and laptop successfully booted with Windows XP Setup.
2- Setup Successfully copied all windows files to hard disk.
3- After step-2, rather moving on next setup screen, blue window appears have a long error description. The key point in Error message was something like this:
"An unexpected error occurred and setup needs to shutdown" then nothing happens...
I have tried with 3,4 XP CDs but same result!!!
I am wondering that is there any need of BIOS setting required?
I have gone through on some article and someone mentioned there that, to install XP on lenovo machine SATA configuration must be set to IDE rather than ACHI(in BIOS)!!!
Can you suggest my to the right decision, what should i do?
Thank You.

Answer:Windows XP installation Problem in Lenovo B570 Laptop

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
Lenovo Support - Drivers & Downloads
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

Hi, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E540 and I am trying to reinstall windows. actually I have had a problem with its harddisk so i replaced it with the new one. Now whenever I try to install windows 8 from iso image burned on a usb stick, the installation setup asks me the license key in the very beginning and since i dont have any license key as it is embedded in the bios/motherboard of my laptop, i cannot proceed with the installation any further. Does anybody know how can i get the license key out of my bios/motherboard so that i can proceed with the windows installation. My laptop originally had a windows 8 pro pre-installed. Thanks in advance

Hello everybody!I am happy user of Lenovo y530 bought with MS Windows Vista Home Premium. I have an easy access to software form MSDN AA. It allows me to download and install e.g Windows 7 Professional. I have downloaded the image, tested it on virtual machine and it works fine. So I decided to install it directly on my laptops hard drive. I have burnt a dvd with a minimal possible speed and here I have got a problem. It boots quite fine, I can choose language and regional settings, but after it I have an information that there is a missing cd/dvd driver. Installer wants me to give a file location. I don't know which driver is needed. I have downloaded some files connected with my Optirac drive but they all are exe and the installer doesn't accept it. Could anybody help me? I have searched a lot of forums but there is no satisfaing ansfer as I can't use USB drive to install it. I have also tried another DVD to burn, another Windows build - and the result was the same.edit: Have tried with another boot order (CD 1st) - with the same results

Machine: T520 purchased Feb. 2012O.S.: W~7 Professional I want to completely wipe my harddrive, buy an installation DVD from Lenovo, and use it to reinstall Windows 7 Pro. According to my Lenovo User Guide (.pdf), Ch. 8 Advanced Configuration, p. 193 to 194 (211 -212 of 298), when you "install a new operating system in your computer ", you need to save the old SWTOOLS folder to removable media and then "Restore C:\SWTOOLS from the backup copy you made before starting the installation." These instructions make no sense to me, for the following reasons.1. I have never heard of using files from a discarded O.S. in one's completely clean O.S.2. The Lenovo User Guide makes no distinction between an installation disc supplied by Lenovo and one supplied by Microsoft. I can see how this procedure would be necessary when using the latter.3. How could Lenovo sell me an O.S. without the proprietary drivers that came with the original factory O.S. ?4. What if one's old O.S. was destroyed or corrupted, or compromised by a virus ? Can Lenovo's solution be to compel users to find all of the drivers (and who knows what else) on their own ? Thank you for your assistance.

Answer:One's old SWTOOLS folder needed after a clean re-installation with a Lenovo installation DVD ???

Hi again,
 
The advice to save SWTOOLS (which is a good idea in any case) is for the generic case of "installing a new OS".  If you get media from Lenovo it will include the full drive image as it came from the factory - including SWTOOLS.
 
Where SWTOOLS is useful is when installing from MS media, or installing a different OS version not from Lenovo media.
 
BTW, if you haven't modified the partitions on your machine, you can get back to factory state by launching Rescue and Recovery at boot time.  Hit F11 or the Think button.  There's a full factory restore image already on your (unmodified) HDD.

Hey all,

I have recently decided to restore my laptop back to factory settings for various reasons.

The factory settings on the recovery partition mean returning to Windows 8.1 and then upgrading back to Windows 10.

I have no problem returning to Windows 8.1 but when I use the Windows Media Creation tool to download Windows 10 and install something happens.

I start the installation where it says the computer will restart several times, but during one of the restarts it gets stuck at the Lenovo splash screen.

I have since run restore to get back to 8.1 a couple of times just in case there was a problem there but still the same problem happens when trying to upgrade to 10.

I have had no problem returning to 8.1 and then upgrading to 10 in the past.

I'm not sure what kind of information you'll need from me so request and I will let you know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

So I was doing a clean install of Windows on my Lenovo x250. It has a 16gb SSD M.2 "Cache" drive and a standard 500gb main drive.

Unfortunately I selected the M2 drive as the installation path and formatted the other drive. So I have Windows on the smaller SSD which is now the "C" drive.

What I'd like to do is make the larger drive the C drive, install windows on that drive, and then use the smaller SSD as the cache drive like before.

I have tried diskpart and the Admin tools in the Control panel to attempt to change the drive letter on the C: drive, but it keeps giving me an error ("The Parameter is incorrect"), regardless of what drive letter I try.

I'm wondering if I simply can't change the C: drive this way, and what other options I have?

Answer:Lenovo X250 - Messed up windows installation onto M2 Cache Drive

Okay, so have tried multiple things to no avail. Looks like the issue is that there are two drives on the system and the Windows installer just doesn't like this. Resolution is typically to remove all other drives other than the one you want to install on. However, in this case the SSD M2 drive removal would require me literally taking apart the system, and for some unknown reason there is no ability to disable the drive in the BIOS (thanks for that Lenovo!).

Any other options anyone can think of?

Just purchased a U430. This is my first Lenovo and thus far, I am impressed. The first thing I did, after confirming that the computer works, was to install Windows 7 Pro x64. That process went smoothly and I was able to find and install all of the necessary drivers. However, there are two issues that are causing problems, one of which is Lenovo Energy Management. The driver seemed to install properly and it does show as being installed from Control Panel->Program and Features. The folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Energy Management\ was created, bu the only program in that folder is for installing the device driver (DPInst.exe). In other words, it seems like the program is missing. Can someone please direct me to the correct download file in order that I can install this application. Thank you.

Hi guys,  I recently got this laptop and wanted to upgrade to Windows 8.1 immediatly since it came with Windows 7. This was of course and option with the disc set that came with the laptop. Unfortunately i have encountered problems in the installation/recovery of Windows 8.1.  When the laptop is finished using the actual disc's (i say finished because it spits out disc 4 which is the last one) and is booting into the OS to do the last installing it "freezes" in the middle of "dowork.cmd". In the cmd window it tries to access a destination directory which it can't. Instead of writing it here, i'm just gonna link a picture of it:  I'm seriously at a loss of what to do. I just don't understand why simple recovery discs would cause a failure, and hope any of you have an idea of what to do. Googling the problem has only lead to this: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Tablets/Factory-reset-Windows-install-stucks-at-dowork-cmd/td-...which is not really the exact same problem either.  Anyway, thanks in advance

Answer:Lenovo M30-70 - Windows 8.1 upgrade recovery disc set - stuck on installation

hi TheJtS,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
From your observation, the image on the Windows 8.1 Upgrade disc looks like it was either burned bad or the image itself is faulty.
 
If the M30-70 have a Windows 8.1 sticker at the bottom and it says Windows 8 STD in the BIOS then the motherboard likely contains a Windows 8/8.1 product key and the machine is likely downgraded to Win7 by the place of purchase.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Check this guide on how to obtain a Windows 8.1 ISO (see Option One)
2. When finished, follow this guide to make a bootable UEFI Win8.1 installer via DVD or USB flashdrive and use it to install Windows (the installation should be able to detect the Windows 8.1 product key in the UEFI firmware that will let you activate Windows).
3. If successful, obtain the drivers from the lenovo drivers page .
 
If the above procedure doesn't work, you may need to contact lenovo on how to go about getting a Windows 8 Recovery Disc.
 
In an event that the machine doesn't have a Windows 8 sticker / Win8 STD  license in the BIOS, then I recommend you contact the place of purchase on how to go about getting a new copy of Win8.1 upgrade discs as these discs may require a product key to be activated.
 
 
Regards

Hello, I took delivery of my new ThinkPad X270 three days ago. It is a 20HN model, and it has the 512 GB Intel SSD, with Windows 10 Pro. One of the problems I am having with the machine is that it randomly freezes for a few seconds intermittently. I read on the Microsoft forum that one solution to this was to check of Intel Rapid Space Technology was installed. In my device manager, I noticed that Rapid Storage Technology was missing. Instead, only the Microsoft Storae Spaces Controller and Standard NVM Express Controller are visible. Then there are no IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in the device manager, either. I downloaded the driver for Intel RST from the Lenovo web site and installed it, but when I rebooted my systel the storage controllers were still the same Microsoft ones, and the Intel RST was still not showing in the Device Manager. I also re-installed the chipset software, but the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers didn't show up either. This was all on a clean install of Windows 10. I already tried using the native troubleshooter app on Windows 10 as well as running an SFC scan, neither of these fixed the problem. Coud someone advise what I should do to install Intel RST?
