Problem starting a brandnew Q180 Ideacentre

Hi there,

 

I just got my Ideacentre Q180 from amazon. I switched it on an .... nothing.

 

FreeDos Version 6.2 .?!?

 

I thought, well ok u didn't buy Windows license aswell, so nothing is on the litte thing.

I tried to install my windows from a usbstick, but as the setup process starts it tells me to put in additional drivers.

 

funny part is that the usb drive isn't recognized during the installation process. so I can not install any drivers :smileysad: bad luck!!

 

what is the trick here , what have I done wrong?

 

anybody help me please 

 

thank

 

gordon

Re: Problem starting a brandnew Q180 Ideacentre

this was cross posted in the German forum and solved.

 

Solution was to plug the USB stick with the Windows 7 installation into one of the USB 2.0 ports rather than an USB 3.0 port.  Windows 7 installation media doesn't currently have the necessary USB 3.0 drivers.
