Installing/upgrading to WIN8 on Y580 1TB + 32GB SSD

2013-10-18, 17:46 PM

Hi there , I've been trying to install or upgrade my Y580 to Windows 8 , but I failed every time . 
I've been looking around forums and through google and found some threads on this issue , I must use rapid drive tool before upgrading . Is there any really simple guide on this issue? 
I want to upgrade my win7 to win8 and I want to install it on SSD if it possible with One Touch Recovery . 
Could someone help me with this as I'm really stuck with all this errors and failure messages . 
Thanks

I find in MS Win8.1 FAQ page, it provide a tool to check upgrade Compatiblity, hope it can help.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/upgrade-to-windows-8

 

Can my PC run Windows 8.1?

If you're running Windows 8 or Windows 7, the best way to tell if your PC and connected devices are ready for Windows 8.1 is to download and run Upgrade Assistant, which scans them and tells you if there is anything you'll need to do before or after updating.

after few failed installations i've been stuck with no OS installed and wasn't able to install one . 
After some research I've found a way to make partitions through CMD while OS Install is running , I did format both discs and started from a scratch . Now my y580 is running windows 8 ( installed on SSD ) , everything else is on 1tb HDD , recovery and all drivers are installed . Only problem I have is windows app store , on ssd i lacked space so i moved every installation to hdd , but some apps just dont work and others cant be installed , i will uninstall all apps that were previously installed to ssd, and than install them to hdd as that seems to be a problem .
