Install windows 7 on yoga 11e

Q: Install windows 7 on yoga 11e

This is a new machine and I have not agreed to the license to windows 8.1, so it is not installed. I have an image file for windows 7. I disabled USB 3.0 in BIOS. Also, I changed the boot order to boot first from my Lenovo USB DVD disk. Is it possible to install win7?

Preferred Solution: Install windows 7 on yoga 11e

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.)

Hi friend,

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding whether installing Windows 7 is possible in your Yoga 11e or not.
Please go through this page, for required settings to be done in BIOS. You can also check the user manual, page 57

I hope the above information helped you.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

I've been extremely frustrated with both the screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues.  I figured before I buy a laptop from another company that I would at least try a reformat. I was expecting devices to not be fully installed after the reformat but Device Manager does not show any issues.  PC is also running fine besides the fact that the trackpad doesn't right click properly and the resolution is off which probably can be addressed by installing the proper drivers.  What else should I install, though?

A:Yoga 2 Pro - fresh install of Windows 10 - what should we install from Lenovo's download page?

Download/install Lenovo System Interface Foundation for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit)...IdeaPad.... That should install, among other things, Lenovo Vantage (ex-Companion.) Use its System Update function to find drivers/updates, download and install them on your system. You don't have to install everything but if you have "screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues" then I'd make sure to at least get the latest chipset, display, video, power management, etc. drivers.
 
P.S. If you suspect that particular driver(s) may be causing issues, then install them one at a time to identify which one(s) are bad.

Hello,I'm facing some little problems that a clean install would definately solve them, but I'm afraid that if I install onekey recovery afterwords, it won't be or can't be 100% integrated with the system. There's this novo key on the side that it brings onekey recovery if i shut my laptop and then press it, would it work later after a clean install of windows OS and reinstalling onekey recovery?Is there anything that is really useful by Lenovo that I'm going to miss out on, if i do a clean install? Is there any risks at all?Thank U guys

I've been trying and trying, but I can't seem to install Windows 7 on my Lenovo Yoga 900. I believe that it might have to do with the USB 3.0 drivers not being installed, but I already tried to inject the drivers onto an .iso and it wouldn't work. Anything I do, it gets stuck on the "Starting Windows.." screen whenever I try to boot from a flash drive. Is there no way to install Windows 7 on a Yoga 900? I've disabled secure boot too, and I know some Skylake laptops are able to run Windows 7.

A:How do I install Windows 7 on a Yoga 900?

Hello and welcome,
 
For Win 7 in UEFI mode you need to enable CSM support.
 
That's not an option in Yoga 900 BIOS.  Your choices are UEFI and Legacy support.  I don't know if Legacy in this case means UEFI + CSM or literally legacy - as in not UEFI.
 
I'm doing some other testing just now and can't fiddle BIOS to check.  If you want to try it go to the Boot tab in BIOS and set boot mode to Legacy support.
 
BTW, if you have a -13ISK2 or other 900 with an NVMe drive, you'll need the NVMe driver and will have to set the SATA mode to AHCI.  (which may require a BIOS update)

I just bought a Yoga 930 and was wondering has anyone done a Windows 10 clean install?  I normally do a clean install with my HP laptops because of all the extra junk most companies install on the computer that I will never use.  I'm just wondering when I did it on my last HP Windows 10 downloaded all the drivers for me I did not have to download anything manually.  Is Lenovo Yoga 930 the same way or do I have to manually get the drivers and install them.  I don't mind doing like this I'm just wondering.

Is there a guide on how to do a clean install of Windows on a brand new Yoga X1 3rd gen? I want to make sure to get rid of any bloatware. I plan to download Windows 1809 if it is indeed available for download next Tuesday Oct 2nd and install fresh that way. How can I obtain my product key so I can activate windows after the clean install? Will I need to power on the machine and extract the key some how before doing the clean install? Or should there be a product key on a label on the computer or something that comes in the box that has it? Finally, is there a hidden partition or something that makes re-installing easy in the future? If so, how can I update it to the 1809 version that I am hopefully getting next week. Thanks!

A:New Yoga X1 G3, clean install of windows

I've done it.  There is no problem with the key.  It is stored in the BIOS and the machine will activate automatically.  If you are asked for a product key during the install, selecct the option to say you don''t have a key now.

Hi, how can I install Windows 7 Enterprise on Lenovo Yoga 12? When I start from a Windows Boot Medium (USB) the Windows setup can't find the drivers for USB and harddisk. So I have no chance to install it on harddisk or to add drivers for the windows setup. The package with the Lenovo drivers contains also no DLL and INF-files. I tried to unzip them, but I got some mysterious files and directories. In our company we are using Windows 7 Enterprise for all computers, so we can buy this Lenovo Yoga 12 only if we can install Windows 7 on this. Lenovo offers a Yoga 12 with Windows 7 Professional at amazon, but we need to reinstall it with our Windows 7 Enterprise. brPeter Piry

Hi.
 
I'm trying to install Windows 10 from an USB flash drive on a Yoga 910-13IKB. I plan to do a clean install from scratch.
 
When I boot the USB flash drive the procedure to install Windows 10 goes normally until I have to select the HDD. It does not find any HDD drive. I guess I need to load some special driver for the solid HDD to be recognized.
 
Is there an special driver or trick to be able to see the HDD ?
 
Regards

A:Yoga 910-13IKB: No HDD on Windows 10 install

Hi Martin,
 
That SSD runs in RAID mode so you need the iRST driver.
 
Download the f6flpy-x64.zip file linked on the left of the below page.  Extract it to a folder on your Win 10 install flash drive.  When you get to the "missing drive" part of the install process select Add Driver and browse to that folder.  That should get you going.

Hi, thank you for the instructions, but I already deleted ALL partitions.  Well, I was already going your way before I discovered this, but without the "keep the USB Stick plugged in" because I used my Desktop PC to create the bootable USB stick. Now I am having the problem in installing Windows 8.1 with UEFI only. I can't boot from USB stick with UEFI, formatted with FAT32 and used the Windows USB Tool to create the media exactly like your instructions in this case. What can I do?  I also tried installing from a second partition but the Windows setup says that there is a MBR-partition table so I am not able to install Windows on that drive. On the other hand Acronis Disk Director isn't able to format the SSD to GPT......that's a real dilemma.....I am at the end of my knowledge. Can somebody help me?

A:Yoga 900 Laptop windows clean install

Drivers are of course needed for the hardware devices on your system to work properly, and many will be delivered by Windows Update, but I would probably update them with the versions found on the Lenovo Support site.   The order that they are installed, however, is not really important as long as you reboot when requested.   As far as software and utilities, you don't really need any of those for your laptop to work, and only you can determine what software or utilities you think are useful, and what you consider bloatware. Cheers,

Actually you did not even need to uninstall Windows 10 Home to upgrade to Windows 10 pro, you just needed to update the product key and your home version will become the pro version.   Your computer came with the Windows Home product key embedded in the BIOS, so during installation it sees that key automatically, and activates the Windows Home features, so you will need to follow the steps below to change the product key to activate your new Windows 10 Pro licence and start the upgrade to activate its features. Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Update & security  > Activation.Select Change product key, and then enter the 25-character Windows 10 Pro product key.Select Next to start the upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.Upgrade Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Prohttps://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12384/windows-10-upgrading-home-to-pro Cheers,

Hello, I just recently clean installed windows 10 on my Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD, replacing the 1TB HDD with a 128GB SSD (I don't have that much stuff). Computer seems to launch apps faster (most of the time) and also starts up faster, but my internet browsing is still kind of laggy.  So i'm wondering If i need to change the computer in anyway (BIOS, etc?) now it has a SSD rather than the shipped with HDD. Also, the clean install has taken all my preinstalled Lenovo programs so I also wonder if this will affect the performance of my laptop(- or is it better)? Because I went to the support page for my laptop and downloaded a driver for the touchpad thinking it would be the newest available and before it downloaded it said it was older than the driver it would be replacing, which I thought strange and it's got me asking if the support page is kept up to date? Ideally I would download a Lenovo app that ckecks my system for out of date or absent Lenovo software that should be there. If anyone could answer those questions I would be extremely grateful. Thanks, David

Hello guys!
 
I have been chocking on this problem for 2 days now, to no avail. The short story: Tried to do the built in free windows upgrade on the computer (from windows 8.1), but something went wrong, and I ended up in the "Please restart to being the installation of windows 10" loop.
After trying several workarounds, I gave up, and opted for a clean install of the product from a USB drive.
 
The install went smooth, and most things were working out of the box, but not the touch screen. Then I went to the product page, and downloaded all the drivers there are. Installed every one of them, but still no touch input. Tried some troubleshooting tips, like trying to find the driver in the device manager, but it's not present there. So far, I tried everything there was in the first 4 pages of google (with an insane amount of search combinations).
 
Nothing...Then I read it, that several other people had this issue, but with an earlier insider build of windows. They said the only solution there was, is to use the built in recovery, but out of routine, with a clean install, I deleted every other partition... not giving a thought something could go wrong.
 
Now the device has no touch input, and sicne that was one of the main sell points, I'm not too happy about it.

After a clean install of Win 10 Home, I tried to reinstall the Yoga Mode Control driver from here: http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Yoga-Series/yoga-900-13isk2/80UE/005KC... The install ends without error, but does not confirm success either. The app does not appear to install.  This same thing happens with Lenovo Utility.
