hi mkshakya,

 

Thanks! Okay!

 

now first make sure the system is OFF

 

Press the power button and start hitting F2

You will boot to Lenovo BIOS Screen and here are the settings you need to change

 

 

First go to the Exit TAB and look for these settings

Either:

 OS Optimization or OS Optimized you will Need to change it to Compatible or Other OS.

 

Next go to Configuration TAB and Security TAB and look for Secure BOOT set it to Disabled.

 

Last would be to go to Boot Tab and look for these settings.

 

UEFI boot - Set it to disabled

Boot Model - set it to Legacy

Boot Priority - Set it to Legacy First

 

Now hit F10 and it should ask you to save and exit just hit Enter for Yes.

After hitting enter your system will restart now quicly start hitting F12 on your keyboard and this will give you an option to Select where to boot, just choose your ODD driver with the Windows CD in it.

(If it did not give you the options restart the system and try hitting F2 again.

 

Let me know your findings

Hope this helps

Cheers!

Hi

 

Same procedure, the only difference is that you will have to choose USB instead of the ODD once you pulled the F12 option on the last step

 

Alrighty

Let me know if you need anything Smiley Wink

For now.. Yeah! Sleep well you have a PC to run tomorrow Smiley LOL

 

Cheers!

hi mkshakya

 

Ok choose diagnostic on that

 

What are the options under the UEFI/Legacy if there is an option for Legacy choose that.
