v480 161 cannot install Windows 8 - crash on Initial Startup Screen

So, as soon as BIOS page passed, Windows logo appears and the circle below circling.

 

After 10 seconds it crashes and restarts automatically.

 

New machine. BIOS has been reset to default multiple times.

Hi

 

Welcome To Lenovo Community

 

We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing,  

 

Please try using the one key recovery option to reset the system to factory default. (In case it is a preloaded System)  Note: this will wipe of all data and applications installed

 

In case you have installed it separately, before the system loads Windows operating system; press SHIFT + F8 key combination on your keyboard which will launch the Advanced Boot Options menu.

b) Click Repair your computer

c) Click Advanced Options

d) Click Troubleshoot

Click Reset and Refresh

Click the option Refresh.

 

Also check under bios if UEFI is enabled

Disabling UEFI will make the system unbootable as there is no MBR on the disks

 

 

 

Do give this a try and let us know  

 

 

 

Hope This Helps

Cheers!!!

Hello thank you for the answer.

Problem is, there's no OS. It's blank laptop.

I solved my problem with the following steps:

I checked UEFI, it's enabled.

I made FDD Windows 8 UEFI-enabled.

I set my laptop to boot from FDD.

Done.

Need to ensure UEFI FDD is properly created, as apparently this laptop can not run normal image.
