brand new Lenovo Legion Y530 with dos

2019-07-06, 13:48 PM

Hello, i am going to buy Lenovo Legion Y530 in next days, but as i can see from the shop that i will buy it, it will not contain windows 10, but only DOS. So i have 2 questions:
1)I saw many threads talking about problems with windows installation. Is that true or the only thing i have to do is just put a bootable usb with windows 10 installation?
2) I also want to have dual boot with ubuntu. Will i have compatible problems with the drivers?
Thanks in advance!

Just order the y530 with Windows 10 pre-installed. Choose the Windos 10 Pro version. Choose both SSD & HDD setup.

You're gonna have to just see. Installing Windows 10 won't be that hard, not any harder than any other laptops post install process, but Ubuntu might be a little difficult.

Hello,
On June 13, I bought the Y530-15ICH-1060 with DOS, installed the latest version of Windows 10 PRO with the ISO from microsoft's website, applied all the updates listed on the lenovo website and did not have a single problem. I had a key from another machine to register.

I do not know what you need Ubuntu but first do the W10 setup so that ubuntu installation detects windows and makes installation easier and although ubuntu it's more difficult I do not believe that you have problems that you can not overcome with the help of the internet and the lenovo community.

Good luck with the purchase (I had to go change my Y530 past six days from the purchage due to problems in one of the speakers but now, with this one, I'm very satisfied, good performance, good 144hz screen, good design and even quite silent on gaming)
 
 
Regards
