Thinkpad y410p updating to windows 8.1 trouble

Hey everyone, just switched from Mac to PC for college and recently purchased a thinkpad y410p. I tried to install windows 8.1 and after going through all the set up and install it goes to do the last restart and turns back on to a blank black screen. I really want to get this working so any help would be great!

Re: Thinkpad y410p updating to windows 8.1 trouble

Hi Colinf4,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


I’m sorry to hear that your Ideapad Y410p and it is not upgrading to Windows 8.1 and at the end of the installation boots to black screen, if you have created the “Recovery Media” for Windows 8, please re-install the Windows 8 OS (Operating System) and then try to upgrade.


Do post us back if the issue persists.


Best Regards

Shiva Kumar
