Lenovo G570 Operating System

2015-09-25, 17:12 PM

Hi all,

 

I have a G570 and after upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 everything seemed to be working great. Then there was a Windows 10 upgrade and ever since then my laptop has been unusable. Web pages do not load, clicking on the start button just high lights the button and nothing else, everything is VERY slow. If I do manage to get into the start menu, any program I click on does not work. That upgrade has screwed my computer. :smileymad:

 

I have tried to roll back to Windows 7, but I do not have that option. Restore does not work either.

 

I have managed to copy some stuff off the laptop in safe mode and want to do a fresh install of the original OS - Windows 7, but I can't find the disk that came with the laptop, to be honest I can't remember any disk coming with it. I have tried to download a copy of Windows 7 from Microsoft, but when I enter the product key I am told that it is a Lenovo based OS and to contact Lenovo.

 

So my question is, where to go from here? Am I able to download a copy of Windows 7 from Lenovo or get a OS on disk?

 

Many thanks,

Steve

Hi,

 

If You upgrade Your win 7 to win 10 without wipe user data is that ur problem. Try to restore Windows 10 to fabric setting. If that not solve the problem, download Win 10 iso from m-csoft and instal new one but u need back up Your system key. In that magical moment when u click upgrade button to Windows 10 ur KEY has been transfered to new license and u Can't use it to instal Windows 7.

Yeah I know 'that ur problem", but I simply want to do a fresh install of Windows 7. If it was not Lenovo 'badged', I could have downloaded it from Microsoft by now and have a working laptop again. I want to download the Lenovo version of Windows 7 to do the install... any ideas?

I have tried the F2 as you boot, that takes you to the settings screen. In the boot section I only see the main partition.

 

Please walk me through how to use the recovery.

 

Many thanks :smileyfrustrated:
