Q: ideapad 300

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 SupportBoot Priority - Legacy FirstUSB 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

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.)

Hey guys, I have a Lenovo Ideapad IdeaPad 100 14ibd - win10 and basically im planning on formatting my laptop to get rid of all the stuff/unknown files that are terribly slowing down my ram. But im still new to this process so im wondering if using Lenovo's Onekey recovery is a good thing but then i saw the Reset this PC feature of windows is another thing. My question is, what would be the more recommended thing i should do to get my laptop to its original state just like the new windows 10, or are there any difference within those  two?PS: I got my back up files all set from this laptop to my external hd already Thank you!

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?
Via Settings: settings > Recovery > Reset this PC > Remove everything, or
settings > Recovery > advanced startup > Reinstall from USB

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

Hi,
I have Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK type/model 80Q700DRSC.
I want to update BIOS, so I downloaded D5CN47WW. In text file it is written that this is BIOS for my computer.
Everything seems fine but when I execute BIOS exe file it says that this is BIOS for Lenovo Paris 300 notebook!
What Paris now? I tried to google but only can find Paris in France.
I am user of Lenovo notebooks for many years (from IBM ThinkPads to this days) but when txt Readme file said
this is update for your computer, it was! This is confusing for me so I cancelled update.
Can anybody explain this mistery?
Thanks in advance

Hi all, I have a friend who has purchased a Lenovo Ideapad but it hasn't an ODD. It has space for one though. I've looked up the Service Manaul and it states 9mm options. Will a 9.5mm dvd drive fit into this slot or does it need to be a 9mm dvd drive? Just the cost of a 9.5mm drive is only £13 odd, where as a 9mm drive is £23.

Hello, I recently purchased an Ideapad 520S-14IKB (SN:MP1CMAJB). As I figured out it has an M2 slot, I installed a 512Gb SSD (Micron 1100).However, the system does not recognize it. I tried to turn off fast boot as it was suggested online but I still do not see the drive. On this site, in a different thread, I saw that the port might be electronically inactive.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/IdeaPad-520S-141IKB-M-2-Slot-2nd-SSD/td... How can I figure out if the port is active or not?  Thanks in advance!Peter

I have been having extra difficulty with normal processes on my ideapad as of late. It is an older model and, if I have to guess, I probably bought it about 4 or 5 years ago. There is a significant delay in the text box when writing emails, multiple video formats (youtube included) lag and pause frequently, and the scroll bar freeezes frequently as well. Is this some sort of issue with my operating system or possibly something with google chrome? I have been due to get a new laptop for a while but I am just trying to speed up the processes so they are at least managable until the upgrade. Thank you

I just looked up my laptop on the lenovo website and it says the last update was in 2015...  how am I suppose to update any drivers?????! Note: It was upgraded to WIN 10 originally had WIN 8 installed. I also have issues with the Bluetooth as it wont connect properly.

I tried all the usual suggestions for resurrecting it but to no avail. I currently have it attached to my TV via HDMI and it is fine in all other respects. All diagnostics return no issues. Windows doesn't recognise the laptop's screen. Ive checked the Radeon graphics card setup, bios setup, etc. Do any of you tech experts out there have anything else I can try? I find it hard to believe the screen is broken.

Hi Chr15 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
The stock display would be the default as this would also be the ones for the BIOS . 
So like what you have in mind , LCD and LCD cable would be the most probable point of failure. 
Transport vibrational frequency thou low may affect connection that can affect the cables among electronic devices. 
 
Opening the cover should not void the warranty for as long as none would be damage on the process as being done on upgrade but conditions for returns may be different from th repair department .
 
As such is the situation best to call in the reseller or lenovo sales for recommendation and if needed to inform if possible reseating would be allowed as it is not required being performed by the users.
 
Your description would be sufficient as display ok on external monitor on both BIOS and Windows.
 
 English 1-800-041-021  9:00 - 18:00 Monday - Friday 
 
Hope this helped answer your query.

Hello, I have the latest windows 10 updates installed. but one day my laptop started to lag. because I usually watch movie and listen to music with my laptop, it ruins my experience of watching and listening. I thought it was because of heavy applications so I used the fresh start tool. and it removed most of my applications and the windows worked properly without any lags until I decided to restart it and again the lags came back. now that I don't have any applications or games that can possibly fill the memory or the CPU, I don't know where the lag comes from. so i'm open to suggestions.thank you
