Y520 cant install windows

2018-11-28, 22:50 PM

I bought y520 256gb ssd 8gb ram 4gb 1050ti i5 7th gen. I made that rufus thing to my usb as windows 10 uefi. I put it to laptop, chosed the true one on boot menu and i tried to install windows but i got an error when i tried to install windows into ssd disk. It was mbr, i made it gpt but it still gave some errors. Then i searched it on google and heard about bios settings, i mixed the bios settings but now i cant see the usb boot in boot menu. There are network boot,usb hdd,sata hdd,epi pxe network options on boot menu. I try different combinations on bios menu as legacy,uefi and ahci but i cant access to windows 10 installation page because usb is missing on boot menu. Please can you help me ?

Hi Robotics,

AFAIK you do not need to have a UEFI bootable USB stick to install UEFI system.

You can have a legacy USB stick and install a UEFI system.

I use YUMI to install everything I need.

It also comes in UEFI flavor, but so far I never had to use it.
