Unable to install windows on lenovo G580

2016-02-21, 11:47 AM

I have Lenovo G580 ci5/4gb ram and it came with winddows 8 per installed but as i am a linux user so  performed a clean linux install.

Now i am exchanging my laptop with my uncle and he wants a clean windows install but i am unable to install it.

Please Help.

It gives some error regarding overwritten UEFI.

Hi vibhawa  , 

 

 

Have you tested the created Windows 10 on another pc to check if the version created is meant for a clean install or just for upgrades. 

 

Check here for a review on Windows 10 installation troubleshooting for guide

 

How did you launch the installation?

Hi vibhawa ,

 

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums,

 

Would you be installing Window 7 or Windows 8 ?

What would be the message and at what part of the installaion would it fail?

 

For Windows 7 and below , best set UEFI in BIOS as EFI / Legacy only, CSM is enabled and on exit tab , set OS optimized to other OS instead.  

 

See how it goes with these settings.

 

 

Regards

thnx for your eply.

I am actually trying windows 10 via a bootable dvd that i made from my desktop.

The error message c omes when windows installation screen appears as soon as i choose a clean installation option the system popups an error message and suddenly reboots to Ubuntu.

That is why I am unable to tell you the exact error code.
