X250 installing Windows 7

Q: X250 installing Windows 7

I have a Lenovo X250 with Windows 8 and want to install a clean version of Windows 7 on it without the Lenovo bloatware, am I able to downgrade to Windows 7 from 8 or can I install Windows 7 from disk without having to purchase Windows 7, I have a set of lenovo windows 7 recovery disks but you can't install the OS without the extra software, I know I can install it and remove the software but I don't want it there in the first place just a nice clean Windows 7 install. Cheers

Preferred Solution: X250 installing Windows 7

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 Ace_Rimmer,

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

The recovery media which you are having is same MTM (Machine Type Model) of ThinkPad X250 then you can use it. If it is different MTM then it may not go with your model X250.

Note: request you to perform recovery media for your Windows 8 OS and then do the required changes for your HDD.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Is it possible to retrofit an IPS touchscreen panel into an x250 laptop? I have bought a new touch display and although the display works, touch does not. The laptop did not originally come with a touch. There are lots of threads on the topic...some say yes and some just don't answer.  The shop says it is also possible and just requires a firmware update.  (which i can't find anywhere)Any help would much appreciated. L.

A:Upgrade HD TN to FHD IPS for X250 (Windows 7). Adv...

Hello,
 
I'm not a Lenovo employee, so cannot answer some of your questions exactly, but let me try to answer as a fellow X250 user who went from an HD IPS (1366768) to FHD IPS (19201080) panel about nine hours ago.
 

When the display panel was switched out, the display scaling changed from 100% to 125%.  Plenty of applications handle the new scaling just fine, but some of older ones looked blurry as a result of how fonts are scaled up in them.  Switching to 100% display scaling solved this and the apps now display crisp, if somewhat small, text.
Text is much sharper on the FHD display than the HD display, which is sort of expected given the new screen has nearly twice as many pixels as the old one.  Both screens I had were IPS, though, so I cannot make a direct comparison between TN and IPS.
I would suggest getting the screen installed by a Lenovo authorized service center.  According to this page, the contact information for Lenovo Ireland Sales and Customer Support is+353(01) 6535 568, and hours are from Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm GMT

One thing I've noticed is that the new screen seems a lot brighter than the old one.  Again, not sure how this compares with TN versus IPS screens, but just something to be aware of.
 
Regards,

I have looked long and hard at other peoples' solutions to this problem to no success. I have tried:-installing latest Intel HD 5500 driver from Lenovo site.-installing latest beta driver from Intel-enabllng the Generic PnP Display-Several registry hacks that claimed to work (I reverted back after they failed to do anything) My question is, when will the display driver support brightness settings again, or is there an older version that works that I can download? I can't "roll-back" my display driver, as the current one was the first I used. Using the default Microsoft VGA driver is a non-starter. I need proper resolution. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. I feel like I have tried every solution on the internet, and perhaps the only solution for me is a different driver, possibly. Or one that doesn't exist yet.

Hi Voljka,For company or production environment, Windows Insider Preview / Release Preview builds is not recommended, as the drivers may not be ready for all types of hardware.  I would suggest you revert back to Windows 10 RS3 (15063), and wait until it is ready and show up in the Windows Update.

Hi, I just bought a X250 today. I received it with Windows 7 Pro, and the first thing I did was upgrade it to Windows 10. After an hour of use, I noticed that the battery was draining really fast. I clicked in the battery icon on the system tray and noticed that it says: Battery 1: This battery is not available for useBattery 2: 40% (or whatever) I opened Device Manager and I see two devices listed under the "batteries" section, both of them called "Battery with Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method" (translating from Spanish, which is my system language, so it might not be exactly like this). I guess this means that the system indeed detects that there are two batteries, so it looks like a software problem. I right clicked on both of them and selected "uninstall", and then went to action > look for hardware changes, so that should refresh the driver. After doing that, the "battery 1: this battery is not available" message still appears. I also noticed that there was a power manager application from Lenovo which is not compatible with Windows 10. After upgrading, Windows notified me that this app had been removed and I don't see a W10 equivalent on the support downloads section of the Lenovo website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Pau

A:X250 Battery 1 "is not available for use"

I also tried unplugging the second battery (the removable one). Immediately after unplugging it, the computer shuts down. If I turn it on without the second battery and plugged into the wall outlet, the icon in the lower right corner (system tray) says "no battery found"; however, on device manager I still can see one battery appearing. If I click on "properties" in device manager, it says that the device is working correctly, and there is no sign of any error log or crash report inside the battery properties in device manager.  I tried updating the BIOS and resetting BIOS to defaults, and it makes no difference. I also tried running Ubuntu from a USB stick ("try" option) and it only detects the second battery, not the integrated one.  I guess it must be a hardware problem.

Hello guys I recently bought a second hand X250 with an Intel 240gb SSD installed and I am planning to install also an M.2 SSD to install Linux.I have already installed Linux in another partition in the Intel, but in general I am not a big fan of grub and also I don't like the restriction of maximum 4 primary partitions per disk. I would prefer to keep the Windows drive 100% clean of any Linux staff.So, I'm planning to install my Linux in the M.2 drive (I have already cleaned my system disk of the Linux staff, grub etc) and I was wondering if choosing the boot up device from the bios is going to be an option, without grub or other boot loaders. I just want to leave the Intel as default boot device and when I want to boot up in Linux, I will choose to boot from the M.2 SSD.Will such a setup work in my Thinkpad?As far as the M.2 drive itself, a 120 gb is more than enough and I am planning to go for an ADATA. I have read a lot of negative reviews about the Transcend M.2s and I don't trust "random" manufacturers, like ZTC or KingDian. Is there any better option for me? Thank you very much for your time. I 'm looking forward to your replies. Cheers

My second X250 came in with a 16GB SanDisk SSD in addition to a 500GB HDD. Reading through the forum, a post mentioned that this 16GB SSD is placed in the position of the smart card reader. The mannual says this is a 3rd NGFF adapter. I am wondering if this 16GB SSD can be upgraded with a m.2 2242 32GB SSD module (or other types). I opened the back cover, lifted the internal battery, then lifted the shining metal cover a little and I don't see a memory module and port under it. I have installed Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on to this 16GB SSD; the Ubuntu install runs well except that only 1.5GB space left. I am trying to see if there is a way to replace this 16GB SSD with a larger size module. Using the m.2 port next to the WiFi card is my last resort. I need advice before taking more parts apart. Thank you.

I recently bought an X250, and immediately upon using it, found that the spacebar is not as responsive as all the older thinkpads I've had in the past. Specifically, when I type I press on the right side of the spacebar to create a space, but my usual amount of force is no longer responded to by the keyboard. If I push harder, it will respond, but that's annoying because it slows down my typing speed. If I press on the middle of the spacebar it works much better, and if I press it with my left thumb it works better, too. Does that mean I'm typing wrong all these years, or did I end up with a bad key?  I have depot service, so would Lenovo address this if I send it in? If I send this in, do I need to remove all the data on the machine? Would they replace the spacebar or the entire keyboard as I saw somewhere? How long would it take? Gotta say that the keyboard is much worse than the X230 that I am coming from. Thanks for any heads up!

I've just received a new X250, maxed out, and I'm really unhappy. Within a few minutes of booting it, I was seeing red and blue horizontal lines on the screen. I hoped these would be fixed by updates, but regardless of the driver, they are still there. To add insult to injury, the ports on the left hand side of the laptop do not line up with the casing. The USB port can be used, but the Display Port is seriously rubbing. The VGA connector is unusable. I'd hoped I'd have the laptop a week before I started a new job, and now it looks like I will be a week later. Does anyone know how I best approach Lenovo for a replacement under the Sale of Goods Act? I really don't want it to be repaired - this is a bad machine.

A:Really disappointed in new X250

Sorry to hear about the issues with your new X250. That must be very frustrating. According to Lenovo, returns should be easy providing you do it within 14 days.
 
I appreciate you may not receive the replacement before you start your new job. You might want to ask Lenovo if they have a similarly configured X250 in stock that they could send you instead of waiting for the replacement to come from China.

Good morning everyone. I installed on my x250 (using a free WWAN slot) M.2 SSD disk - ADATA Premier SP600 256GB M.2 SSD. First installation: April 2016. The disk worked great. After a "BIG windows10 update" the drive began to freeze and died on August 2016. The drive was replaced with a new one. On March 2017 the problem returned (in the new disk) - again began to freeze and died.From here my question arises - did I make a mistake somewhere? Do dear forumers who did similar installations on their x250 have similar problems? What can I do to prevent the problem on the third drive? During installation I did not mix anything in BIOS etc - just "plug ang play". I would be very grateful for your help.

A:X250 - WWAN module

EM7455 isn't a whitelisted WWAN module for your X250 - it was whitelisted for Skylake's ThinkPad generation devices. There are two dedicated WWAN modules for your device:- FRU: 04W3842, Ericsson N5321 HSPA+ 21Mbps M.2 WWAN.- FRU: 04X6014, Sierra EM7345 LTE/HSPA+ 42Mbps M.2 Card. You must buy a module with correct FRU on label. There are generic modules available on the market, but they won't work with your X250, as BIOS will detect them as unauthorized devices.

I?m still using a previous generation Lenovo laptop, X240. It includes an m.2 slot for WWAN devices.

And Sierra Wireless EM7445 supports USB 3.0 already, so even if the device is capable of receiving LTE data very fast, using carrier aggregation, there still can be a real bottleneck in data throughput, because the device will need to fallback to the older USB 2.0 protocol when coupled with a previous generation laptop, like X240 or X250.Also every time I turn my laptop on or wake up it from sleep, I?m getting a Windows notification ?This device can perform faster.

A:X250 Trackpad in an X240?

Hello XThinkpadUser, I am very sorry, but I advice You to forget this idea. There are most likely going to be some imcopatibilities in BIOS, and if not so, then some differences with the shape of the keyboard / trackpad connector. Plus you would need to replace the whole keyboard bezel. My opinion is based on the same glitch with old X200 and X201 - many people asked if X200 can be backwards upgraded with touchpad - it can be definitely not (afaik). Nobody can mark your question as impossible until first X250's arrive, but in your case I would hurry selling your X240 unit. Sooner you do it, you will get more paid for it... (believe me, you have my best sympathy, but I am in much more huge trap - what shall I my X220 change for?? :-) ) Regards,skrble

I got this X250 (Product Number 20CMOOE5US) last week and it has this weired power issue. When pressed the Power button, it flashed the green light 3 times and nothing happened. Unpluged the AC adapter and removed the external battery; opened the back cover and disconnected the internal battery and the coin battery. Connected AC adapter and pressed the emergency reset button on the back for several seconds; turned off the AC adapter power for a couple of seconds and then turned it on again. Without press the power button, the laptop came back alive with a boot screen message saying the CMOS checksum was bad and time/date need to be set. Pressed F1 key and updated time/date and then F10 key and RETURN. The laptop loaded Windows 10 with no other problem. While it is still powered on, I reconnected the internal battery and the coin battery, put the back cover on and inserted the external battery. Surfing the Internet, running Windows 10 updates and virus scan, including write this post; all without any problem, except the following: The laptop goes back to the initial dead state again if I use the mouse to click on the "Shut down" power off option. I will need to repeat everything from the beginning - disconnect all power source (AC adapter, external and internal batterys as well as the CMOS coin battery) and use only AC adapter power with the emergency reset button, ..., get into BIOS page to update time/date, ... This doesn't look like a motherboa...

A:X250 Power Issue

Look in the windows event log to see if a device is failing to shut down completely.  Sometimes they throw a message.  Try an Ubuntu DVD and see if shutdown followed br restart works there.  It may be the motherboard power circuitry.

Hello all, I am looking to get an x250 but I have a question about the screen. Speaking to my boss who has an x240 he experienced quite a lot of ghosting issues with the IPS screen. I was wondering if these issues have been corrected for the model or should I just go with the TN screen and not risk it? I tried contacting Lenovo sales and customer support and got very unhelpful  answers such as "it is a new model therefore it makes sense it will have new parts" and "we can not give part details to customers". They even told me there had not been any reported issues with the x240 screens, when I have found multiple forum posts about people getting their screens repaired it and have seen the ghosting for myself.  Does anyone here have an x250 with an IPS screen and if so have they seen any ghosting issues?

A:x250 screen issues?

I have the FHD IPS display on my X250. I am not really sure what "ghosting" is since I have never experienced it. However, I can say that the screen is very sharp and I'm very happy with the way it displays text, photos, and HD videos.

I have recently acquired an X250 Thinkpad for work. As said work takes me well outside of Wifi areas, I have also acquired a SIM card to use with the built-in EM7345. However, while that worked originally (I inserted the card, it was recognized, I changed the PIN), the laptop no longer recognizes the sim when inserted.The solution suggested in another thread (enable WWAN in BIOS) does not apply to me, as it is enabled.My SIM card works in other devices, however, different SIM cards are also not recognized. Any ideas?I've switched the pre-installed Windows 7 for Windows 10, but the changed of PIN was already in Windows 10, so I doubt it had anything to do with that.

Hi, I have x250 (MTM20CLS7HU00) and looking to upgrade from the 720p to 1080p, now what I see on lenovo website that my laptop lcd panel supports these models: Mfg part#04X032404X032504X043300HN889 and I assume all of them are HD only, any idea if 00HM745 OR 00HN899 would work instead of 04X0324 which is currently installed ? Also where can I buy genuine one from Lenovo instead from 3rd party sites, as mine still in warranty and afraid that I might lose it. Thanks a lot,

Hi..I have got this new Thinkpad X250 with pre installed Windows 7 Professional. It has 1TB HDD and a 16GB SSD which I believe has got the recovery. I wanted to know if there is any way to reinstall my Windows without inserting any external bootable drives and if yes then what steps should I take to get the re installation done and get back my system the way it was when I bought it...
