Unable to Install windows 7 on Lenovo ideapad 500 15isk

Q: Unable to Install windows 7 on Lenovo ideapad 500 15isk

Hi,
From the past few days i am trying to install windows 7 x64 on my laptop but during the boot of the installation it shows that load drivers for windows to continue the installation. i have tried numerous methods for the drivers but still no sollution.
I also reinstalled windows 10 on the same system but on that the display starts to fickle as soon as i install the drivers for display.(That i think is some driver issue from lenovo as earlier it was working fine) so finally decided to install windows 7 on the system.
when i start installing windows 7 on the very begining of the installation it says (netstat:windows can not find a network adapter /network drivers )
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.
Thanx in advance

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello, yesterday I've bought a laptop Lenovo Ideapad 310-15ISK however, i'm not able to properly install Windows 10.I've burned Windows on USB stick using Windows Media Creation tool.I've launched installation on my new laptop and actually everything was OK.After reset (after 1st part of the installation), I've received the blue screen with an error "inaccessible boot device".I've tried to do it few times, but nothing helped (e.x. I used GPT, EFI, disabled hot-keys, disabled secure boot, disabled fast boot).Hardware is definitely OK (I installed later Ubuntu and it works perfectly). Probably sth is wrong with Windows drivers to this disk (ADATA SU800 SATA). How can I install Windows 10?

Which drive can i use to finish this installation?What is the make and model of the SSD that you have installed? By the way, do you realise that Microsoft have refused to provide any updates for Windows 7 on systems that have Kaby Lake processors?  Your 510-15IKB has a Kaby Lake processor, so no Windows 7 updates, ever!  I think that you will have difficulty with the Intel drivers too -- they will refuse to install.  I recollect someone fixing that by editing the INF file to fool the system into thinking that the driver is compatible.  I don't remember where I read that, so you will have to search for the details. If you are a small business and you need to use Windows 7 because of a business-critical app that does not work on Windows 10, you should sell your Kaby Lake laptop and buy a laptop that uses the previous generation processor, which is Sky Lake (e.g. a 510-15ISK).  Microsoft are continuing to offer Windows 7 updates for Sky Lake systems (until support ends in 2020). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

Hi fellow helpers, In urgent need of help (I guess everyone is in need of that over here) I have two questions.  1. I purchased the Lenovo Ideapad 500 15ISK laptop in October 2016. I regisitered it on Lenovo support in December 2016, however i noticed that my laptops warranty runs out on 7th February 2017. Its been 4 months since I purchased this laptop and the warranty was for 1 year. How is this possible that it runs out in 4 months? 2. I have been having problems with the laptops wifi connectivity. While I am browsing the internet, for some reason the webpage keeps on loading for 2-3 minutes before loading completely. My old laptop, tablet and work fine without any delays. I have virgin media 50MB. I have updated the drivers but still no solution and this occurs few times everyday. It is starting to really annoy me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ThanksJackson

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.

In Lenovo vantage you can turn on "Conservation mode".  See below.  It talks about Lenovo settings.  BUT same feature is in Vantage.  It will keep battery at 55-60%.  SO for example if currently its at 90% it will not charge.

I just got my Lenovo Ideapad 700-15isk on the mail today, bought it with freedos (I already have a retail w10 license I want to transfer to it). Last night I prepared my bootable w10 usb and tested it on my old laptop to verify it works. No problem. I can't get it to work on the Lenovo, no matter what Bios settings I choose. I don't really mind if it's UEFI or Legacy at this point, I'm reinstalling next week when I get my new ssd disk, I just want to be able to get windows in for now. My usb stick is formatted as fat32, with windows 10 64-bit, I got the ISO using the media creation tool from Microsoft, and put it into the usb with rufus. At first, I was getting a winload.efi error (with either uefi, legacy, legacy first, uefi first and all variations you can think of). I redid the usb, this time just mounting the ISO file and copying the files manually. Now I'm getting winload.exe file might be damaged or missing. The mystifying thing is that the installer boots just fine on my old asus laptop. It's been years since the last time I did this, so I'm probably missing something obvious. Can anybody guide me on how to get the windows install screen to come up on this machine? Thank you in advance.

Hello Lenovo Community!  I'm a proud owner of a Lenovo IdeaPad 700-15ISK. I like this laptop alot, even though I only got it a week ago. There is a problem, however. My touchpad is "jumping" at specific time intervals (approx. at a 3 second interval). The "lag" doesn't last more than 0.5 milliseconds, but it's really, really annoying. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling the Synaptics touchpad drivers (I use Windows 10). I tried the ones from Lenovo Support, then the generic ones. I also tried disabling PalmCheck. It didn't work. I tried disabling Realtek Audio Manager, as some people on these forums had a problem with the audio driver causing some kind of conflict, on other laptop models. But that did not work either. Then I installed Ubuntu, and the problem still persisted. I have this annoying touchpad problem even in boot menus! (like Windows/Ubuntu menus, before installing the OS).I opened up a program, which is incorporated into the Synaptics Driver on Windows, called MoodPad, which basically draws a line when you swipe your finger across the touchpad surface. I noticed there are gaps inbetween. I posted some photos to make things more clear. The intervals are fixed, no matter if you swipe the finger across or not. For instance, if you happen to swipe it 2 seconds after the previous "lag" had occured, the next one will occur after 1 second (there is a 3 second interval, as I said before), and so on. Here are the photos from MoodPad. The red circles rep... Read more

My battery seems to charge very slowly when connected to AC and when I unplug I lose power in less than 20 minutes and the diagnostic says battery is in "Fair" condition and only charging at 41.38% of its original full charge capacity.  When I called customer service since I am still under warranty, they just said I could send in the laptop for repair which takes about 7 business days or go to a Best Buy for the GeekSquad to repair.  I went to Best Buy, but the Geek Squad said they would have to send it off for 13 days so none of this was helpful as this is my only laptop and I need it daily so to send it off for 7 business days would be difficult.  Are there any other options for repair that reduce the time significantly?  I can't believe Lenovo doesn't offer overnight shipping to expedite the process

Hello guys!I had a problem with this laptop and support center replaced MB. After replacement everything is working fine except there is no serial number and MTM programmed in BIOS (it just says INVALID). So, LSB and similar tools can not read serial number and take me to support page. I have SN and MTM written on the back, but I want them to be programmed in the BIOS. Support center told me they don't know how to do it and to ask Lenovo. So, here I am - asking  I flashed latest E5CN61WW BIOS version and I see there is WinFlash64.exe tool that came with BIOS. I'm pretty sure this tool can program serial number, but I'm not sure which option to use and how. There are many of them when I use WinFlash64 -help switch: dak, dss, dpm, dps, dvs and many, many more... Attached to this post you can see help output. So, what is the correct command sequence to write serial number and MTM? Thank you!
