Windows 7 reinstall problem on Lenovo G770

Re Installing Windows 7 ultimate on my Lenovo G770, have deleted all partitions apart from LENOVO One Recovery Partition.

 

The install works fine, installs , reboots a few times, loads files onto the designated partition ... but just as it boots for the last time , it goes into cyclic reboot, but never loads the windows ( no bluescreens, just goes past F2 - F12 screen, and restarts)

 

Am I missing something, in BIOS etc ... ? , have installed Windows XP on machine, it works fine ....

 Hi crumdub12,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

The only thing I can think of in a BIOS setting is the SATA mode, Check it inside BIOS under Configuration,

AHCI or Compatible, check between the two.

 

If not, Why did you reinstall the OS, Did the previous one had problems? Because it might be the HDD afterall that caused the first issue, I would suggest to have the HDD checked as well.

 

Regards

Solid,

 

 

     Reason I re-installed the OS was it was filling the partition, and re-install was only option.

 

 

       I have installed with both COMPATIBLE and AHCI setings in BIOS set, but to no avail ....
