Ideapad 310 - Install SSD

Q: Ideapad 310 - Install SSD

I have an Ideapad 310 recently purchased.

I want to install an SSD for booting windows and then use a caddy with my old hdd for data storage

Is there an easy way to migrate windows to the SSD using recovery made with Onekey or will I have to clone the HDD?

I'm looking at hopefully transferring the recovery partition to the new HDD too in case I need to reset in the future.

The SSD is smaller in size than the original 1TB HDD

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Ideapad 310 - Install SSD

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.)

You'll need to clone the HDD, since OneKey is on the old hard drive.

Hello, today I purchased Lenovo IdeaPad 110 for my friend and I am supposed to put win 7 64 bit on it. I have used .iso image to create botable image using Rufus. I know that -iso image is good because I deployed in on over 30+ different brand laptops. I turn on the ideapad and set boot priority to usb first. Windows loads installer and I select the language, after that I proceed to install but it pops out a window asking me for drivers. I tried to clear and partition SSD using diskpart but without any luck, I tried to switch betwwen usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports, different usb sticks but with no luck it is always asking me for drivers (I suppose for the SSD). I can see the SSD in BIOS and in diskpart.  What to do ?  Thanks!

Hello dear Lenovo fans!I have an old netwbook Lenovo Ideapad S205. I want to put inside a new SSD as a system drive and use the existing hard drive only for storage. I saw on the mainboard that below the wifi module installed in a mini pci-e port there is placed an extra spot for soldering of an additional msata or mini pci-e slot. The bigest questin is - If I solder an msata port there and install an msata SSD - Is it going to work? Does anybody have tried this at all?I called in Lenovo Bulagra and they didn't give me a concrete answer ?!?!Please comment this issue!

I got the Ideapad 100s last year. Works great, but a Windows update screwed it up, and I can't install ANY OS anymore. When I boot 10 from my USB, it freezes on the first setup screen. Even DEBIAN! It freezes on the language setup. It started doing this sort of recently. When it freezes, the power light goes out and the caps lock light doesnt turn on, so I have to force turn it off. The UEFI doesn't give me many options to change, besides secure boot, which I've tried both on and off. I've been trying different USB's, seeing if it was the stick issues, but so far, the boot menu doesn't detect them, except one of them. I want to be able to use this again, but at the moment, I can't. Help?

I just bough new 110 ideapad, unfortunately, it does not have any Windows Installed, only DOS I have tried to install windows from CDROM, but it is not an option. I have changed Boot Mode on BIOS to UEFI / Legacy Support, none seem to be working. I have applied all the fixes I have read on this community, but none seem to be working. The system has USB Boot Enable/Disable Option, PXE Boot to LAN (which I guess I shouldn't be using), and IPV4 PXE First Enable / Disable Option. I have encountered all manners of error messages and I am pissed right now. I just need who will tell me what to do, or perhaps, I should return the system.

Hello. For a long while, I've been thinking about buying a new improved laptop over my old one and had my eye onSamsung's SSD's, particularly a 2TB 850 PRO which is a SATA3 and is 2.5 inches. Looking through the tech specs of the ideapad Y910 and seeing its HDD is SATA3 and 2.5", it looks like the two will bea match made in heaven but since I never dealt with installing new PC components before, I want to check with the forums to know for sure if I can, indeed, install THAT very model (Samsug 850 PRO) into an ideapad Y910. Thank you.

I got a new Ideapad Y700 and i wanted to cleanly install a win10 pro edition.Problem is i see a lot of partitions in disk managment and while i am experienced in formatting and reinstalling windows i wanted to ask for some clarifications. So as you can see in the pic above there are 6 partitions total.My guesses are:1) Partition 6 (~20gb) is the OneKey recovery hidden recovery partition, with the factory shipped image (win 8.1).2) Partition 1 and 5 are win 10 install partitions and will be created automatically in the new install i make3) Partition 7 idk what it is, prolly some win 10 stuff also but idk4) D: partition is a lenovo partitions with drivers5) C: normal OS partition Are my guesses right?If i install new windows (delete all partitions and install there the new OS) will there be a problem?Also, idk a lot about UEFI in win 10 as my old laptop was working with the old system and bios. I guess everything will be sorted out automatically when i fresh install windows?Is there any reason to create an exact image of this system b4 formating? (warranty issues maybe, i dont have files i m afraid of losing)

Hi folks. My friend gave me his ideapad 100 which has Linux Ubunut OS on it and he asked me to install Win 7. I have tried to install the OS, but after booting and loading system data, Windows's Blue Screen of Death appears with a message "The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.". So, after 4 hours of trying what i have found on internet, nothing's been successfull. I have tried to update BIOS, and I found the last BIOS for ideapad 100 (http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/100-SERIES/100-15IBY/downloads/DS102...), but it comes in .exe file which I cant run in Linux.I tried to run it even with Wine but it was unsuccessful.Then, I tried to search for BIOS update in .iso file to make it bootable with usb, but I didn't find it. Please, help me with this, I dont know what to do anymore.

Hello, firstly I want to thank you for reading my post and apologize for the poor formating.  Secondly, I would like to share my issue with my lenovo laptop (bought late 2016): I think someone might have sent me a virus through a game. What makes me think that? After someone messaged me in-game telling me they were making me disconnect from the game, which was ineed happening for a few days. So I used the novo button to get back to reinstall the system? from the recovery partition but I am still worried that someone could be spying on me. Then I tried to install windows 7 professional 64bit (the laptop was provided with windows 10) from an official DVD I bought a few years ago but it did not work, I changed some settings in the BIOS about UEFI, legacy, I read that on this forum in other posts. I tried to boot from the DVD, and eventually it gives a blue screen telling me that my BIOS is not ACPI compliant.  I updated the BIOS but it didn't solve the issue.   Finally i would like to ask a few questions: 1) Could my recovery partition be infected?2) Is there any way to download and install a fresh version of windows 10, I tried from the microsoft website but apparently my windows doesn't work.  Thank you for reading and have a nice day.

how to install windows 7 on this.  Here's what i've done: I've used both the Windows 7 DVD and i created a bootable USB wiith it (UEFI Boot).  They work. I disabled the  security in the bios, so i could work with UEFI, but when i boot the machine with either, the windows 7 loading screen happens, then it freezes on the Starting Windows animated logo.  I can get no further. When i set the bios to boot in legacy mode it gets past that part, but then asks me for a driver.   I've downloaded all of the windows 7 64 bit drivers on the Y700-15ISK driver page, but none of them seem to be the driver that windows is looking for. Right now i'm a little at the end of my rope on this.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I have been trying to install a fresh version of windows 7 64 bit on my laptop, but really getting nowhere.
 
I copied the ISO on a USB flash drive using rufus: NTFS file system.
 
My Setup configuration:
USB Legacy - Enabled
 
Boot Mode - Legacy Support
Boot Priority - Legacy First
USB Boot - Enabled
 
On the Legacy options slightly lower down I see two option, SATA HDD and SATA ODD. I see nowhere to select USB drive as the boot option.
 
When I enter boot menu my options are as follows: SATA HDD, SATA ODD, Windows boot manager with my SATA HDD name. I dont see a USB option to boot from?
 
"Secure Boot" is an option mentioned in some forum posts, but I cannot find this option in my setup.
 
Another thing I read was disabling USB from the boot exclusion list. This is another option I cannot find at all.
 
The guide from lenovo site here https://support.lenovo.com/za/en/solutions/ht500207 shows a different BIOS menu that I see on my laptop.
 
I just need a simple fix, why is this so complicated

Hi, I have a problem with an ideapad100 laptop which were recently bought from local retailer. I downloaded all all relevant drivers for this model for Windows 7 Home 64bit. I'm unable to install almost none of them. Here are some of the errors I'm getting:"This BIOS is only for Lenovo 100-14/15IBD.

Then installed Win 8.1 and made the external screen work...for about 5 minutes. Then installed Win 10 but external screen still ot working, tried at least 4 different VGA drivers, updated BIOS, etc. My conclusion is that there are serious driver issues with this laptop, Win 7 do not even bother trying.  Try Win 8.1 or 10 and let me know if you can use HDMI to project screen ,and the driver version you use! Thanks

I am seriously considering buying the Ideapad 700-15ISK laptop, specifically one that comes without Windows pre-installed (with FreeDOS) and also without SSD pre-installed (just a 1TB HDD). After buying the laptop, I then plan to add a M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (most likely a Samsung 960 Evo 250GB). What would I need to do to successfully install Windows 10 (clean) to that new SSD and then format the HDD (remove FreeDOS) for use as a data storage drive? What do I need to pay attention to or make sure in the process? Thank you in advance for assistance.

Ever since I got turned on my 510 for the first time, its fan has been spinning loudly, as if it was under a heavy load. Yet it isn't. Using HWMonitor I can see the temps resides at a cool ~30 degrees when idle, but the fans spins at the same level whether the temperature is 30 or 50, idle or under load. I figured perhaps a BIOS update would fix this problem, but I'm met with this error message. http://imgur.com/a/7FP0S Now, reading the error message, I can see that it addresses a EFI address. When I first got the computer, I did a clean install of Windows 10. To do this, I had to disable multiple things in BIOS such as Secure boot, Intel PTT, and enable legacy boot.  The BIOS update in question is the one below.http://support.lenovo.com/dk/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/500-Series/510-15IKB/80SV/downloads/DS...

So can anybody help me in this regard that which are the drivers i should use during the installation and where to find them as these drivers are the installation drivers not the simple .exe drivers.
