Legion Y530-15ICH-1060 Laptop 81LB005MAU - clean install

Hi guys,

 

Trying to clean install Windows 10 via a USB

 

As soon as it reboots from the USB it just hangs at the Windows logo with the circular dots and will not continue.

 

Any ideas?

 

I completely formatted the SSD.

 

I have done this with a different Lenovo model without any issues.

 

Anyone know how to rectify this?

Cheers

Did you just format the SSD, or did you actually clear all previous partitions so that the SSD was listed as "unallocated space"  at the "Where do you want to install Windows"  screen during installation? 

 

If not , try theses steps. 

  • Disconnect all other HD/SSD except the one you try to install Windows
  • Boot up to your USB Windows Installation media
  • On first screen, press SHIFT+F10 to exit to a command prompt, then type the following commands followed by pressing Enter 

diskpart

list disk        (used to verify that the SSD is listed as Disk 0)

select disk 0

clean
exit
exit

  

  • Continue the Windows 10 installation, and see if it continues on.

 

Best of luck,

I cleared all partitions for the SSD and the HD.

 

I then choose the SSD to install Windows in and it goes through as usual.

 

But as soon as it reboots I get to the screen in the video and it does not continue.

 

I will try what you suggested.

Is this a new M.2 SSD that you are installing on a system that originally did not have one?       It would be interesting to see what drive the laptop is tring to boot from in the BIOS when you see it hang.

Hi JD,

 

I'm not upgrading anything. The SSD and HDD are both stock.

 

I wanted a full clean install like I always do when I get new laptops.

 

In the BIOS I enabled Legacy support with UEFI first to boot and then the M.2 SSD after

 

I removed the 2TB hdd and it's still the same issue.

 

It just hangs with the power button blinking after it reboots from the Windows set-up via the USB.

 

Any ideas?

Re: Legion Y530-15ICH-1060 Laptop 81LB005MAU - clean install

I finally got it working!

 

Copying my post from this thread: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Can-t-install-Windows-10-on-Legion-Y530/td-p/4190122/hig...

 

I've resolved my issue regarding a clean install on my Legion Y530

 

First off I think these could be possible factors to the issues I encoubntered:

 

  • Lenovo's install had the SSD as Disk 1 and the HDD as Disk 0
  • Bootable Windows 10 Pro USB was created around 1/1.5 years ago
  • Having multiple drives installed may add complications

OK, so after deleting all the partitions of the SSD and HDD to try and do a clean intsall during the Windows set up everything was going fine until it restarted. I got the Windows logo with the never ending circular dots.

 

So I decided to remove the HDD to make the SSD Disk 0. I tried to run set up again but again I hit the neverending circular dots going around and round.

 

I then decide to change some BIOS settings to see if that would help:

 

  • Boot Mode > Legacy Support
  • Go down to the Legacy section and make sure the SSD is the first option

Tried to run set up again. Failure. Neverending dots over and over.

 

From here I decided to download the Recovery tool from Lenovo just so I could test to see if it would install to the SSD and at least boot into Windows. It runs the recovery perfectly and it installs Windows fine.

 

I now decide to format my Windows 10 USB and I headed over to this site to recreate it:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10

 

Choose the option to makes a USB boot for "another PC"

 

I boot into the USB and run Windows set up again.

 

The SSD is Disk 0 and I delete all the partitions.

 

I go ahead and install Windows on the SSD and I notice that Windows now partitions the drive into 4 parts instead of 2 from when I initially tried to do a clean install. I'm assuming Microsoft updated the set up process.

 

Set up's goes ahead and it reboots and FINALLY it gets past the circular dots.

 

Happy chap from here on out as I now have the clean install I wanted.

 

Maybe the way I got mine working will work for someone else too. Or if you have an old Windows 10 USB boot format that USB and recreate it from the link above, maybe that's all that's needed to get it working.

 

Cheers lads
