boot – Windows 7 install “Load Driver” error, Lenovo laptop
I’ve had the identical downside on my Lenovo Flex 2 15 when making an attempt to put in Home windows 7 (it is shipped with Home windows 8.1)!
In an effort to boot up on an USB within the first place, you might want to push the “Novo button” (in actuality a pinhole) on the correct facet, nearly up entrance. This can present a listing of 4 choices; select “BIOS Setup”.
Within the BIOS underneath the tab “Boot”:
- Set “Boot mode” to “Legacy help”
- Set “Boot precedence” to “Legacy First”
Below the tab “Configuration”:
- Set “USB Legacy” to “Enabled”
- Set “xHCI Mode” to “Disabled” (I had to do that so as to keep away from a shutdown loop)
Below the tab “Exit”:
- Set “OS Optimized Defaults” to “Different OS”
Lastly, to have the ability to proceed past the error on “lacking driver for CD/DVD/USB” as soon as the setup has initiated, I put the driving force for USB (it solely exists for Bay Path-M architectures, however I’ve a Haswell (i5-U4210) and included it for secure measure), the Intel Chipset Driver and the Intel Administration Driver for W7 64-bit within the root of the bootable USB-device (solely the Haswell-version of those).
Subsequently I used to be capable of set up W7 Professional 64-bit efficiently.
