G550 - Downgrade to Win XP

by Lenovo Staff on ‎01-03-2011 11:13 PM (668 Views)


When installing Win XP on G550, I am getting a blue screen error.


Reboot PC and press F2 on Lenovo screen to go into BIOS.


At BIOS, change the hard drive mode to IDE and save BIOS changes.

I'm trying to downgrade from windows 8 to XP on a new G500. I need assistance because I can't find my optical drive in the bios. it only has UEFI in the boot sequence.  any suggestions?
