Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR Windows 10 Clean Install

I am having problems doing a clean install of Windows 10 on my Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR and need some expert help.

 

Bios Settings

Secure Boot: Disabled

Boot Priority: Legacy Support

Boot Priority: Legacy First

USB Boot:Enabled

 

- Booting from USB with Windows 10 iso created using Rufus - "GPT partition scheme for UEFi "

 

- Windows Setup comes up fine, When i choose "Install Now" i get to the "Where do you want to install windows?" and am getting the below error message which is preventing me from proceeding.

 

Error:"Windows cannot be installed to this disk.  This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk.  Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

 

Drive info is Drive 0 Unallocated Space - i deleted all partitions- i tried formating/deleting/creating new partitions with not success.

 

Any help provided will be greatly appricated!

I solved the problem!

 

When i created the bootable USB with Rufus i chose "NTFS" as the "File System".  You must choose "Fat 32" as the "file system" and make sure to chooe "partition scheme and taret system type" of "GPT partition scheme for UEFI".

 

After this the instal worked flawlessly!

Solution:

- create the bootable USB with Rufus - choose "Fat 32" as the "file system" and make sure to chooe "partition scheme and taret system type" of "GPT partition scheme for UEFI"

- have to use Windows 64bit!!!

- enable UEFI Boot in Bios

 

Boot from USB and normally install Win 64bit

Done.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR Windows 10 Clean Install

this is what worked for me.

i had my lenovo idealpad 14 inch it was in english but i wanted to put it in french, so i had to reinstall the system. during installing , i wiped off all the partitions.

i followed the instructions of Division23 to boot up the drive then i followed this link to change the format to gpt https://sostuto.com/convertir-partition-mbr-gpt-installation-windows/1455/
