Downgrading Ideapad 100S (14IBR) and 120S (14IAP) from Windows 10 64-bit to 32-bit

2019-11-20, 4:22 AM

Hello everyone!


I'm interested in downgrading the Ideapad 100S (14IBR) and 120S (14IAR) respectively to a 32-bit copy of Windows 10. I've read that it is possible using Grub-/Grub2 — but since I have no experience with it — I thought I'd ask around here for some advice.


Both units run a 64-bit UEFI out of the box so I cannot install Windows 10 32-bit using Microsoft's WS setup.


PS: Linux is not an option (the computers aren't mine.)


// thanks in advance
