Re: Lenovo G500 format

Hi CelalKaradag,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

What is the current Windows version?

How was it if you try to install the CD within Windows?

You can also try using the boot manager F12 / FN + F12 taping it as the machine restarts.

 

I was wondering you you still have the original harddrive since it would also have One Key Recovery feature that is idead on restoring the machine to factory image. Formatiing the drive would delete it so making a separate recovery media aside from backup should be done initially.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo G500 format

I'm using windows 7 now. 

I have official Windows 8 CD. I found it with my warranty certificate.

I tried fn+f12 and selected dvd room. And i heard some sounds in my cd room. 

And my computer opened in a normal way.

Hi CelalKaradag,

 

Could you share the machine number/ MTM from the sticker?

Seems that the DVD is not being read when selected. Try running it within Windows .

 

Regards

I'm bought it 5 years ago so the label was ripped off.

Hi CelalKaradag,

 

If you cannot play the Windows DVD while booted in Windows then you can try the same disc on another machine to check functionality. You can also try another DVD that you have known to work on the laptop to test the cd player's functionality.

 

Try sending me the serial number privately for me to check if the systemboard would also have a digital key for Windows 8.1 aside from current Windows 7. 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo G500 format

Hi CelalKaradag,

 

This would help. 

How to locate serial number (SN) & model type if label is missing or illegible 

You can send it through private message to maintain confidentiality of the serial number.

 

Try using a movie DVD and other DVD media to further check on the cd player too.

With the installer DVD, check if there are scratches and test it again in another machine to confirm.

 

Regards
