Lenovo laptop how to reinstall Windows from a flash drive
Good afternoon! Dear readers and guests of one of the largest IT blogs in Russia Pyatilistnik.Org. Last time, we examined the article “How to delete data on USB flash drives in the Windows Register” I showed how to calculate which devices connected to the system. We go further and finally I will show you detailed instructions on how to install Windows 11 with all the nuances and pitfalls. I am sure that when it comes out in a couple of months you will understand what needs to be done and configured. And so let’s go.
How to enter and configure the Lenovo G500, G505 BIOS laptop for installing Windows from a flash drive or disk
Consider how you can enter the Lenovo G500/G505 laptop BIOS to configure it to install the Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system with a USB medium (flash drive) or disk.
Turn on the laptop. A flash drive or disk should already be installed in a USB port or CD/DVD drive, respectively. To get into the laptop BIOS, you must often press the combination of “FN” “F2” buttons during loading.
The Windows 8 operating system is installed on our laptop model, so you can immediately let you go to BIOS, and problems may arise. Problems usually arise if the operation of the Windows operating system has been completed incorrectly.
To go to BIOS in this case, you need to wait for the operating system loading. the loading icon will appear on the screen and starts to spin. See the image below.
After that, you need to press and hold the button for turning on the laptop for about 5 seconds. The laptop will turn off.
Turn on the laptop again. We often begin to press the combination of “FN” buttons “F2”. Now the problem should be solved.
After we entered the BIOS, we go to the Boot tab of the main menu. If you have an ordinary flash drive, like ours, then in the first line “boot mode” the value of “UEFI” is changed to the “Legacy Support” value. To do this, press the Enter button and in the contextual window that appears, select the desired value.
Now the tab window will change, a new line will appear. “Boot Priority”, in which by default “UEFI First” will be valid. We need to change it. To do this, click on the “Enter” button. In the menu contextual window, select the “Legacy First” value.
Next, go to the EXIT tab The main menu BIOS. Here, with an active (highlighted white) line “Exit Saving Changes”, click the “Enter” button. A context window will appear, asking if we really want to go out and save changes? Press the “Enter” button.
At the beginning of the system loading, we start again quickly and often press the combination of “FN” “F2” buttons. We enter the BIOS. We switch to the already familiar Boot tab The main menu.
On this page we find a block of lines under the title “Legacy”. This is a list of devices located in the order in which the computer will contact them in search of the operating system for downloading.
Since we will load the operating system from the flash drive, we need to raise our flash drive in the list on the first line. Now it, as can be seen in the image above, is on the third line (USB HDD: USB Disk 2.0).
To raise it above, we will switch to this line and use the combination of “FN” buttons “F5”. (Combination of “FN” buttons “F6” lowers the selected device according to the list).
Now we go to the EXIT tab The main BIOS menu and press the Enter button twice to save changes. The laptop again goes into a reboot.
But after the start of the new load, the laptop will begin to use the operating system located on the flash drive.
When using the CD/DVD drive to load the operating system, we carry out all the same actions, only instead of the USB device, in the list of devices, we raise the device located in the CD/DVD drive in the list of devices.
Proper creation of a loading flash drive for Windows
First of all, to create a boot disk with Windows, you will need a flash drive with a volume of 8 GB or higher. You ask why you need such a volume. The answer is simple, now the installation files of modern OS have a volume of more than 2–4 GB. In these examples, we will figure out the creation of a boot flash drive on such popular OS:
To create a loading flash drive for windows 7, you need to download a license image. You can download it on the official page www.Microsoft.COM/RU-RUFTWARE-DOWNLOAD/Windows7. To record the image on the flash drive, you need a proprietary utility Microsoft Windows USB/DVD Download Tool, which can be downloaded on the www page.Microsoft.COM/EN-OUS/Download/Windows-USB-DVD-Download-Tool. After installing the utility, you can start creating a loading USB flash drive. After starting the utility, a window will be displayed in which it is necessary to indicate where the image is located.

After pressing the NEXT button. You will get into the device selection window to record the image.
In this window, press the USB Device button. Then you will move on to the choice of flash drives.
Having selected the necessary flash drive, press the Begin Copying button. The process of copying installation files on the flash drive will begin. Also be careful, since all previously stored files on the USB drive will be erased.
The inscription in the last window “Status: Backup Completed” will mean that your boot flash drive is ready.
To install Windows 8.1 you must download the official utility MediacReatool on the page https: // Windows.Microsoft.COM/EN-SUS/Windows-8/Create-RESET-Refresh-Media. Having launched the utility, you will fall into the window of choosing a version of the OS, in which you need to choose the language, version and discharge of the operating system.
In the next step, you need to select a device for Windows recording. In our case, it is a “USB device of flash memory”
The next step will make it possible to choose a flash drive.
After that, the next step will be loading and writing files to the drive. As well as with the previous example, all data on the flash drive will be erased.
The last window will notify you that the installation drive is ready.
To make a bootable flash drive for Windows 10, you need to download the MediacRentification utility from this page: www.Microsoft.COM/RU-RUFTWARE-DOWNLOAD/Windows10. If you run the utility on Windows 7 or 8, the program will offer you two options: update or create an installation medium. You need to choose the second option.
The stage of creating a boot drive will be similar to the example for Windows 8.one.

I hope this information was useful. Good luck and good, until new meetings are friends!
Eh, youth! Someone else uses Windows XP?
In this brief essay, I will share my first gadget (namely mobile, before that I had a Vector-06C in the late 80s, and a standard PC on Windows), behind which I spent a fairly large period of time, and with which I only associate me pleasant memories Looking a little later I will say that after I had to “sell” it, but after time I returned it again.
Back in 2007, I acquired the first laptop-it was the HP Compaq NC6320, which was based on the 32-bit operating system Windows XP Home Edition.
At that time he had more than suited me.
Immediately after the purchase, I climbed to demolish the axis restoration section, broke the Hard when installing the Windows on “C” and “D” (then this had to be done first). Naturally, the OS itself went to the first disk, and the second for everything else.
After the successful procedure for rolling the axis, I installed all the programs that were relevant for me at that time: Skype, Alcohol 120%, Nero Burning Rom, Daemon Tools, ICQ, Mail Agent, Tula for downloading from coarse and so on.
In the year 2015, I “sold it” to one friend, who later successfully gave him to his friend.
Time passed and in December 2021 I wanted to return it. Nostalgia tortured or something? Indeed, thanks to this laptop, in 2006, I met my wife, with whom we have already had two children.
In January 2022, he nevertheless returned to me back. A little battered, but still mine!
First of all, I unscrewed all the screws from the back, took off the clavat, got to the processor, processed thermal, cleaned the cooler, etc.
It turned out that many screws are no longer there, some “ears” are successfully broken by the former craftsmen. The battery has already become unusable during this time. All labels are torn off. In general, after all the necessary procedures, I started the next step.
I, like in the old, are like-installed Windows XP and rolled all the drivers he needed.
After I decided to sag on the network in search of a laptop of the same model on spare parts. I could not find in Runet at that time. I found on ebay one German in excellent sustain. Bought, and after a while he was already with me.
On the left is my laptop purchased on the right on ebay.
My handsome with a fresh axis is Windows XP Home Edition. License! (I have already forgotten what the activation of Windows is by phone)) But I had to remember and activate. Also pleasant memories.
But its brief characteristics. I changed the RAM to the line for a large year in 2008, probably.
This is already a German laptop. Windows XP Professional should be default on it, but for some reason he decided to roll on a laptop with 2 gigs of RAM Windows 7 Ultimate, also 64-bit.
Turned it on today. dulls. It will be necessary to roll back “Piggy”.
Look like that’s it. If you have any memories regarding your first gadgets, then it is made to Комментарии и мнения владельцев!
Problems when loading OS do not arise so often, since reinstall Windows on a Lenovo laptop or any other model is quite simple. However, some complications may still appear.
First of all, you need to verify the correctness of the selected format of the used flash drive. Directly when creating the installation drive, you need to choose formatting FDD or HDD.

To install the system on the laptop, you need to turn it off and connect the loading medium to the port created. Bios preliminary configuration will allow the system to independently determine from which disk it is necessary to load. Sometimes it may be necessary at the stage of turning on any button to activate the installer. Information about this will appear on the screen.
How to install windows without a disk and without a flash drive
The system will begin to unpack installation files, after which the main window window will open before the user. Here you need to select the item “Complete installation”.
Using the instrument built into the installer, you can control disk sections. It provides for the ability to format the desired section, delete it or break the existing disk into new sectors. After all the manipulations are completed, you need to select a specific carrier for the system and run the installation. The process is fully automatic and will not require the user’s intervention until the first setting window for the already installed operating system.

I’m trying to install XP on Lenovo B590 tell me how to install drivers for a hard drive during the installation of Windows? The doorway is that the introduction with diabetes, the section is formatted, the files are copied and that’s it, it is not installed further
Thank you very much and huge. It was very useful.
On the Lenovo G50-30 Book, the Win7 installation began when in Bios put the default OS when the Win7 stood the blue screen when installed from the disk
I do everything as written. checked several times. When installing, the blue window of “death” jumps out (((what to do I do not understand.
Thank you very much) helped to figure it out, otherwise we would have taken it for 5,000 tenge
Dear author is absolutely right: “I want to make a reservation right away that, please update all the installation actions, upgrade BIOS LENOVO to the last firmware.»But I strongly gripped and demolished the pre.installed Windows 8 before I realized that I have outdated BIOS code. For reference: I had A7CN44WW firmware, and the latest version on the manufacturer’s website A7CN444WW. Tired of the blue screen 0x0000a5 when trying to install Windows 7, I tried to install Windows 8 To reflash BIOS from under it (I remind you that there is no firmware under DOS). But I was disappointed. when installing Windows 8 at the stage of choosing a language, the touch and keyboard refused. I solved the problem like this-downloaded Live-CD Win 7, with grief in half loaded from the DVD drive and launched the firmware. After updating Windows 7 64BIT, the original version was installed only when choosing an option in the BIOS settings “Exit.os Optimized Defaults-Win8 64BIT”. Yes Yes. It is Win8 64BIT. Windows 7 64BIT put with DVD the drive and shamanity with USB2.0 did not use. Maybe someone will help. Gratitude here: Staralex))))
Latest version of the BIOS A7CN48WW (apologies for copywriters)
After the update, BIOS began to put Win 7 X64, the touchpad and USB did not work. I chose another system in Bios and everything worked. Then when the Windows could not load. Put Windows with a loading flash drive.
It is not necessary to put Win 7 x64, calmly and without dancing with a tambourine installed Win 7 X86, everything is fine, nothing thrown awayAnd yesadvice….The blue screen, most likely flies out due to Windows assemblies, put original images.
Thanks a lot! Everything was drowned! Be sure to do everything in the specified sequence and enable USB 2.0.
Guys, you just need to rearrange the points in the instructions: at the OS Optimized Default point, select the Win7 OS item and then select Load Default Settings so that the BIOS drops the settings for Win7. After that, change USB 2.0 Save and start the installation. P.S. Call Boot Menu FNF12
Yes! Eugene is absolutely right! In case of violation of the procedure, problems arise! After choosing Win7, you need to make Load Default Settings!
I completely agree with the last two Комментарии и мнения владельцев. Only in this order and you can install Windows 7 on Lenovo G50-30.
I confirm! I tried everything, but only in this order the indicated by Eugene and you can install Windows 7 on Lenovo G50-30. Loaded to the USB 2 port.0
I confirm if after the first reboot during installation the blue screen, then after choosing Win7, you need to make Load Default Settings!
“After choosing Win7, you need to make Load Default Settings!”Truly so! For otherwise it will not work.
“After choosing Win7, you need to make Load Default Settings!»Grateful for this advice, everything worked!
