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 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 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 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 B / G Series :: G580 Suddenly Stopped Booting Into Windows

Nov 5, 2012

My G580 suddenly stopped booting into Windows.

The first black screen with the Microsoft logo loads but afterwards I just get stuck in a black screen with the cursor which I can move around but nothing more.

So, my solution was to get into Safe Mode. Unfortunately although I don't have a password when Win7 boot, I'm asked for one in Safe Mode. The thing is neither the keyboard, nor the touchpad work so I cannot get past the login screen.

The keyboard works perfectly in BIOS, but not in the Windows login screen for Safe Mode.

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?

I bought this laptop for my son to use and like many, he didn't care for Windows 8.  So, I downloaded the drivers for the laptop and then did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional.  I have been unable to find a driver that will work for the Network Controller.  The drivers you can download on the Lenovo site do not work.  This computer is useless to him unless we can get the wireless working.

Lenovo U/S Series :: Windows 8 Installed On Wrong Partition Of IdeaPad U430?

Aug 13, 2014

I just opened my Ideapad u430, and immediately noticed that the windows OS was installed on the 500gb sata drive instead of the SSD. I'm pretty sure the whole point of the SSD portion was to install the OS on it to speed performance. Any tips on how to transfer the OS onto the other side of the partition without having the original discs?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Windows 8.1 On IdeaPad Y510P ExpressCache - Constant Freezing

Feb 20, 2014

I recently bought the Y510p laptop and upgraded windows to 8.1
Since the upgrade i'm getting contant freezing, which could last 10seconds or 10minutes.
Any time i restart the computer it will hang, and the only way to kill is it to press on Power button.
Checked the eventviewer and i found the following warning appearing every minute:
Log Name: System
Source: iaStorA
Date: 20/02/2014 17:36:40
Event ID: 129
Task Category: None
Level: Warning

[Code] ....
After long research i came to conclusion that the ExpressCache is causing this.
The moment I uninstalled it, issues disappeared. System will restart without any issues, it won't freeze either.
Checked the following article: [URL] .... 
Tried to re-install ExpressCache but the issue started to presist straight away, constant freezing and the above message in event viewer.

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 U/S Series :: IdeaPad S510p - Frequent And Unpredictable BSOD - Windows 8.1 64bit

Apr 29, 2014

My Ideapad S510p has accrued over 10 BSODs over the past 2 weeks. It is totally random, not due to putting it in sleep mode, and apparently is caused by a failure in the ntoskrnl.exe and usbehci.sys.
I have tried looking for malfunctioning devices, and disabled bluetooth as it was apparently not working.
I also installed several new drivers. This solved nothing, and I am at a loss of what to do entirely.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 With Windows 8 - Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Dec 1, 2012

My Y580 should be arriving shortly. I got it on the Black Friday Special and it comes with Windows 8. I bought a SSD to replace the HDD and I am wanting to downgrade it to a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro and I have a couple questions:
How to do this for the Y580? I have not been able to locate one.
Also I am assuming I would not want to use the Windows 8 device drivers correct? Do I use the Windows 7 device drivers?
Would use the drivers from the Lenovo site or each devices specific website? I am going to try to save them on a DVD in advance and want to be prepared.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Install Windows 8 From USB On X1 Carbon

Sep 25, 2014

I am trying to install windows 8 from the 3 disks that came with the X1 Carbon. There is no DVD drive and we have no external disk drive, so I need to create a bootable USB for this. The laptop came with windows 7 on it.
It is easy to use DISKPART to ready the USB as a bootable device, but how to I take the data from the 3 DVDs and put it onto the USB so that it works? The first one only has drivers but the OS install is split onto two disks. I referred to a KB article but it was talking about autorun files that are not present on these DVDs.
The DVDs I have are labeled as

(1) Applications and Drivers Recovery Disk,
(2) OS Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro [Disk 1 of 2], and (2) OS Recovery Disk Windows 8 Pro [Disk 2 of 2].

Lenovo B / G Series :: G510 And Windows 7 - Can't Install Driver

Apr 26, 2014

I have a problem with driver installation on my G510 notebook with Windows 7. I've installed all drivers, and only two had left: "Unknown Device" and "PCI Simple Communications Device". After installing the Intel Power Management Engine, the "Unknown Device" had disappear (installed successful), but second one is still not installed. VendorID (8086) and DeviceID (8C3A) suggests, that this is Intel Power Management, but this driver is already installed.
I tried to install different versions of this driver (even for Win8), but nothing changed.

Lenovo Y410p P/Y/Z Series :: Clean Install Of Windows 8.1 On SSD?

Feb 13, 2014

I just bought and received a y410p with the hybrid drive. I have a 120gb ssd that I would like to make a fresh install on. Where do I get both the iso and the window's key? My box didn't come with any disks or windows key. I don't really wish to just clone the hdd since there is so much lenovo branded junk included. What are my options? 
Edit: Would I also have to install all of the drivers separately? I've not used windows in some time now. I've been running linux for quite awhile and it picks up most hardware without dealing with drivers.
