Booting problem on Windows Installation

2015-05-02, 16:08 PM

Hello,

 

I had installed Samsung SSD Pro 840 on Lenovo G510 with the help of Samsung Data Migration and it was working perfectly but now i want to install new windows and its stucked on the boot progress.

 

Some months ago i had installed new BIOS ver. 3.07 to 3.09. Furthermore, I have installed the Seagate harddrive now but having same booting issue. Maybe of BIOS ver. ?

hi jklogic,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

A few questions:

1. Is the Seagate drive the orignal HDD that came with the machine (with Win8.1 preloaded)? If yes, is the system stucked on the lenovo screen (similar to this thread) or during/after the windows loading screen?

 

2. What other version of Windows are you trying to install on the Samsung SSD? If you're trying to install Windows 7 or older, have you tried to the set the following in the BIOS?

 

Security Tab:

Secure Boot = Disabled

Boot Tab:

UEFI = Disabled

Boot Mode = Legacy

Exit Tab:

OS Optimized Defaults = Other OS

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

hi there,

 

Good to know you got the issue sorted out.

 

I haven't tried creating an .ISO image using the files in a recovery drive but if you successfully backed it up and formatted the flashdrive, you will need to make the flashdrive bootable again and select the .ISO image that you created (see option 2 or 3 of the guide below)
