Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: IdeaPad V570 Can't Boot Windows 8 Install DVD

Nov 22, 2014

I have an IdeaPad V570 that experienced a total hard drive failure (be careful how hard to close the laptop in frustration) I had Best Buy try to recover data and opted not to pay for the recovery after the only crucial data did not seem to have been recovered. Best Buy told me the rest of the system seems to be intact so they could install a new Hard Drive if I wanted it back. They made me offers to completely restore the system at a price but I decided to save money thinking I should be able to restore the system myself. So they installed the hard drive and that was it. 

I decided to go with Windows 8 after learning that support was beginning to wain for Windows 7. I purchased the OS from Best Buy and I am attempting to install it. So far that is not going well. The BIOS sees the CDDVDW drive and the HDD, both are listed in the BOOT menu with the right names. However the computer is not booting from the WIndows disk. I get a message ending with :

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM

At which point it take me to the Boot Menu. I can see the order I have set for Booting is:

3. PCI LAN: Realtek PXE B03 D00

It seems to me that the system is trying to boot in that order but the CDDVD drive is not responding, the HDD has nothing on it so it goes for the PCI LAN and there is nothing for it to do so it returns the error an sends me back to the Boot Menu.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z50-75 - Can't Install Windows 8 - Not Booting From DVD

Dec 24, 2014

I've bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-75 ( with Free DOS ):
Bios Version: A4CN24WW (V 1.03)
I am trying to install Windows 8 but it just doesnt work. not matter if i allow secure boot or disable it. no matter if i choose from the "OS Optimized Defaults : [Win8 64bit]"
I changed the boot priority so that the DVD-Reader is on the highest place (1). Got a working Win8 DVD, also got win7 professional, but i'd rather install Windows 8.
Even though Win7 is okay too if it'll work then.
I don't know what to do other than switching around between all those options. and it doesn't work at all.
Whenever i start the laptop and choose to start with the DVD-Reader it lights up and nothing happens.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z510 - How To Install Windows 8 In UEFI Mode

Jan 24, 2014

I have been struggling with installing w8 on my Ideapad z510 laptop in UEFI mode, but neither I could succeed it nor I could I find something that might work. I will clearly explain the case.

Point 1:
As I understood, to succeed w8 install in UEFI format, one needs to choose "UEFI First" mode from Boot Menu in BIOS. Then, the source of the boot needs to be specified to identify the rigid path to the documents to load so that new OS could be installed correctly.

It is possible to chose UEFI First from boot mode, but it's not possible to choose the USB path for UEFI booting in this case, which doesn't allow you to succeed a UEFI boot to your computer. You can't reach the DVD or USB, where the installation files are, and start installation process.

Considering the first case, you need to choose Legacy Support mode to boot your computer and reach USB disk or DVD to install new OS on the computer. 
To succeed UEFI mode booting to the computer, you need to see 4 different partitions on your disk at point of disk selection, where you choose the disk you'll install your OS. However, when you select the Legacy Support mode from BIOS, the disk partition is limited to 2 in my case, which are:

Primary diskSystem reserved (350 MB)Hence, when I continue with the installation, the OS is installed on Legacy mode. After installation, when I go to BIOS to choose UEFI mode for boot mode, the laptop checks some connections from network and says

EFI network 0 for IPv4 failedEFI network 0 for IPv6 failed respectively.

PS: Please don't tell that "you can't install, because your computer doesn't support", because I received the computer from technical service and a version of W8 was installed on it in UEFI mode. However I deleted it to install W8 pro.

Lenovo U/S Series :: Windows 8.1 On IdeaPad U330 - Secure Boot Not Being Configured

Oct 19, 2013

Yesterday, I updated to win 8.1.  The process appeared to go smoothly, but I now have a number of issues:
1  If I close the lid and reopen, the sytem does not wake up.   It does not wake up if I press the power button.  All I can do is a hard shutdown and reboot.  This occasionally gives an error message on restart, but has not produced any solutions.
2 There is a message about secure boot not being configured
3 The support app has a cross on it and won't work
No doubt there are other problems, but number 1 is the killer....

Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: V570 Active Protection System On Windows 8

Feb 28, 2013

I was trying to find the Active Protection System software for Win8 for while now, it's just not coming up anywhere. I really need to disable the disc freezing feature on my V570 cause it's super annoying (especially when watching videos).

Whether the software is available? I've tried the Win7 version, but there are some compatibility issues, so it doesn't work....

Also, if the software is not available yet for Win8, are there other ways of turning this thing off (BIOS, registry)???

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: USB Boot For IdeaPad Z500

Feb 11, 2014

I bought the Lenovo Ideapad Z500 and I'm trying to boot from a USB drive in order to install Windows on it. When I start the boot menu I only see the hard-drive, the DVD and the network. I tried to set both UEFI mode and Legacy mode in BIOS but the USB stick does not appear in the menu when I boot. I put the image of windows with Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool which formats the stick in NTFS mode.

I have the latest BIOS v1.21 and I tried with 2 different USB sticks: one 16GB USB 2.0 Corsair and with a 32GB USB 3.0 ADATA both on USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports on the notebook. I really haven't seen anything like this in my entire career. 
I even downloaded the file efiootBOOTX64.efi and replaced the one that Windows come with on the specified folder on the USB stick ....

Why is so difficult to choose the USB boot drive on the newer notebooks? How can I boot from USB?

Lenovo Y510p P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Boot On CD / DVD?

Feb 5, 2014

Just got the y510p laptop and am trying to install Ubuntu so I have this bootable DVD and I wanted to try Ubuntu before installing as usual but I can't get the laptop to bot on dvd. On boot menu options there is only EFI and some kind of network options but no dvd. I tried following instructions here but no matter how many times I press F1 during startup, I can't get to boot menu and windows starts directly: [URL] Is it not possible to boot on dvd. The dvd is ubuntu 13.10 supposedly compatible with EFI and secure boot. I don't understand why there is no option to reorder boot devices like on all my older PCs.
I manage to get BIOS setup pressing restart and shift and then selecting UEFI firware settings and I do get to bios setups but again no way to find the option for booting on a dvd.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y580 - PowerDVD 10 Update Won't Install

Apr 25, 2013

I was trying to watch a DVD on my laptop and kept receiving an error from PowerDVD 10, saying that it was an invalid media type. After looking online, I noticed that some people said that the update might fix this. So, I downloaded the update and ran the installer. It required that I remove the current installed version of PowerDVD in order to install the patch. After the installer wiped that from my computer and began to install the patch, I received a message stating that "This software can only be installed on a Lenovo system." This was a patch file that the program sent me to, called "PowerDVD_v5630_RiTA10(Lenovo)(PDVDServDelayStartup)_DVD130802-14.exe"
After looking at this, I went through the knowledge base and found that there is another file linked for updating the PowerDvd software called "Lenovo.Lenovo_RiTA10_v_DVD110707-07.exe". When I tried to run this I get the following error:

"Cannot install the patch. Either this patch is not intended for your version of PowerDVD 10 or your system does not have a previous version of PowerDVD 10 installed. The patch installation will abort."
Of course I don't have any previous version of PowerDVD 10 installed, because the other patch uninstalled it in order to install. Now I am stuck without the DVD software in this terrible Windows 8 environment. I even tried VLC player and the video is cut off. This is very frustrating. This is on my IdeaPad Y580.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Can't Boot From Disk Or USB On IdeaPad Z710

Oct 26, 2014

I'm trying to Install Debian GNU/Linux on my Windows 8 Ideapad Z710, and I can't even get my laptop to boot from external media. From the InsydeH20 Setup Utility, I've so far disabled Secure Boot, set Boot Mode to UEFI, enabled USB Boot, enabled PXE Boot to LAN, and set my EFI boot order to 1) EFI Network 0 for IPv4, 2) EFI Network 0 for IPv6, then 3) Windows Boot Manager (no other options). I'm not actually trying to boot from a network, I just want to boot from the onboard DVD drive or my USB DVD drive. When I boot with these settings, I get the error: EFI Network 0 for IPv4 (...) boot failed, then a similar one for IPv6, then it boots to Windows. Why can't I boot from DVD or USB?
Another thing I've tried is setting Boot Mode to Legacy Support and Boot Priority to Legacy First (with Secure Boot disabled) which results in my laptop booting to straight to Windows even when USB ODD is first in the boot order.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z570 - Unable To Boot From CD

Dec 10, 2014

My Lenovo z570 will not boot from CD.  I have the system recovery CDs and another bootable CD that work in another Lenovo so I know the discs are fine.  The boot order is set properly (CD first) and even hitting F12 on the boot up and selecting the CD drive again doesn't work.  The drive does work - I can burn and play CDs.  I uninstalled the drive and reinstalled and updated the BIOS to the latest.  I see others with this problem have been advised to change UEFI or Secure Boot setting but these options are not available in my BIOS.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y410p Boot Taking More Time

Feb 8, 2014

I got my Ideapad y410p a week ago. It came with Windows 8 and many useless softwares installed. It was taking around 3 minutes of time and immediately i updated my os to 8.1 (x64). Even after updating to 8.1, the boot time didn't get any better. I unistalled useless softwares like Mcafee, Cyberlink tools and many and installed AntiVir and Visual Studio. Turn on Fast startup is also enabled. But what is painful is it still takes 2 minutes and 31 seconds plus to load my desktop. What is more painful to me is My old laptop (Amd Dual Core, 3GB Ram with Many softwares installed with windows 7) loads earlier than this.

Lenovo Y410P, Interl Core i7 4th Gen, 8 GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 2GB Graphics

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad U300s Boot Error After Canceling Installation Win7 From USB

Jul 13, 2014

I tried to install a new version of Win7 on my ideapad U300s from a usb that set to be a bootable device containing *iso file.

I also set USB as first boot priority in BIOS setting, of course. But when the installation began, I canceled them all and restarted my laptop but found it troubled.

Here is its error report.

From then, I can no longer boot my laptop from USB as well as enter BIOS setting to set back HDD as first boot priority. 

Both Enter/ESC make it restart and then turn to this dumb black screen.

I think I should remove the BIOS battery to turn BIOS setting into its default, shouldn't I?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Y510P Freezes At Startup - Takes 10-15 Minutes To Fully Boot Up

Mar 18, 2014

For the first week or two it worked fine and everything was going really well. Then about a week or two ago it started acting up. It is freezing programs(firefox, IE, Chrome, explorer, Flash CC, blender, and a few other programs I needed to install for school. It sometimes freezes on startup and I have to hold the power button down to restart it. Sometimes when it restarts it takes 10-15 mins to fully boot up and load up to the login screen.

Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: GPT Format For 3 TB Hard Drives On Lenovo V570

Sep 21, 2014

Lenovo V570, I'm on Windows 7 64-bit.
I have an esata port, and was going to get an internal hard drive with a case that converts the drive into an esata drive. I'm wanting to get a 3 TB drive, and in order to get it to read all 3 TB, I'll need to reformat the drive in GPT format (not MBR). Right?
I see a thing online that says the SATA controller has to be compatible with GPT in order to do this. I want to use it as an external drive, without any operating system on it, so I'm not worried about getting Windows to run on it; just if I can format it as GPT and get the full 3 TB out of the drive. I don't want to buy the 3 TB drive and then find out I can only get 2 because of the motherboard. If that site was correct, then I need to know if the sata controller is compatible with GPT.
I see this listed under the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers list: Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller.
I tried to call Lenovo support but could only tell me that she thinks I have SATA 0 or 1, but nothing about the controller in this model or GTP compatibility.
How do I find this out?

Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: Battery Settings On V570?

Feb 18, 2012

I was wondering if the default Energy Management battery setting of 50% can be changed on the Lenovo V570. I keep the laptop plugged in almost all of the time, and the popup suggests using the setting that keeps the battery at 50% all the time. That's fine in terms of not over stressing the battery, but if I need to unplug the laptop, I'd rather have a fuller charge than only 50%. I'd read that ThinkPads can be set to 90% or other settings. Is that possible with the V570?

Lenovo V570 C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: Not Booting Up / Turning On?

Oct 16, 2012

So like many V570 owners I encountered the same problem where the laptop does not turn on anymore. I'm not on warranty anymore so I couldn't send it in to Lenovo either. Based on what I read, this issue appears when the laptop goes to sleep (closing down the lid when the laptop is on, or letting the laptop sleep when you're not using it for a while).

So I was thinking, "Hmm it doesn't make sense to replace the motherboard just because the hard drive is on sleep". Why not just pull out the hard drive and memory cards and put it back in? So I unscrewed the smaller cover on the back of the laptop and unscrewed the hard drive (one screw), pulled out the hard drive (slide it backwards and pull out) and also pulled out the two memory cards (that are on the right side).
Then I simply put the hard drive back in and the memory cards back in place. Screwed the cover back on there and it TURNED ON!

First thing I did after that was go into the Power Options in Windows 7 (just search "Power Options" from the start menu) and went to "Choose what closing the lid does" and changed all the selections that said "Sleep" or "Hibernate" to either "Shutdown or Do Nothing".

NOTE: The down side is that you probably can't Sleep or Hibernate your laptop anymore. I'm trying to see if there's a BIOS update for this but the Lenovo Support website is not loading at the moment.
The UPSIDE is your laptop WORKS and you're not gonna be spending $$$ for an unecessary "motherboard' that they say they'll replace.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z580 - Windows 8 And SSD Disk

May 13, 2013

About a year ago I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 with Windows 8 preinstalled. My question is this:
I  want to upgrade my hardware by replacing my current hard disk with an Solid State Disk. The problem is that in windows 8 there is not any program except the OneKey Recovery which obviously it isn't a Microsoft's official recovery application (such as the one in Windows 7). If I create a disk with OneKey then is there any way to use it to install windows 8 on the new SSD disk? How the pc is gonna recognize a backup disk created by an application which is not installed on it?

Lenovo V570 C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: Always Boots With System Preparation Tool 3.1.4

Jun 30, 2013

I purchased a refurbished V570 for my son.  Just received it the other day.  Every time it boots up, the System Preparation Tool 3.1.4 boots up.  Whenever I turn the laptop off and start it again, instead of showing the regular Windows 7 start up screen, it has a "Setting up your computer for the first time" (or something like that) screen.  Once up and running, the tool pops up again.  Windows 7 runs perfectly, no issues, I installed a bunch of things for him, but obviously this tool shouldn't be starting up and the laptop shouldn't be starting with the setup screen every time.
I did some digging around the internet, there is a bunch of info on this, but everything indicates that the Windows installation was not properly finished on my laptop.  I went to all the places that are listed to possibly remove the tool, but can't find any references except a bunch in the registry which I don't really want to mess with on a "new" computer.
