Legion Y530, without windows 10, please...

2019-02-22, 22:32 PM

Hi all,

I want to change my y510p to a new one.

I liked Legion Y530.

I know that only Windows 10 is officially supported. But I do not want Windows 10, for me it is not an operating system, it is a virus.
Someone already installed on Y530 Win 7 or Win 8.1? Is it  generally possible without a lot of problems?

Solved! See the solution

Technically, you can install anything back to DOS on this machine (though hard drive drivers may be tricky...)

 

In my experience, most Windows 10 drivers will be somewhat backwards-compatible back to 7. I would recommend using a free backup tool to mirror the hard drive, then give it a go! Make sure you note down the notable device models (wifi, ethernet, etc) in case you need to google by device ID.

 

Good luck!

BTW I saw many y530 with Linux who hits better Geekbench scores than those with windows.
