Windows 10 clean install and lenovo utility

2015-08-04, 2:51 AM

I performed a clean install of windows 10 (pro) on my y50, installed all drivers but the lenovo utility app lenovo provides for windows 10 doesn't start after installing.

This is a very important application for me and without it i'd probably roll back to windows 8.1 so any help is greatly appreciated.

Solved! See the solution

I'm having the exact same issue here with the Y50 4K. Did you upgrade using the Windows 10 upgrade tool? or did you get the official automatic update? Because in my case I waited a couple of days and I didn't receive the update so I decided to use the upgrade tool and did a clean install. But now the interface seems laggy but it runs just fine on my 5 year old laptop that I upgraded through the automatic upgrade.... I'm starting to think that I shouldn't have upgraded manually because it doesn't make sense that my 5 year old laptop runs smoother than my Y50.

 arasheed, I wanted to ask the same. It is strange that it is not explained anywhere what does Lenovo utility does, but it is in download page for your laptop. I just guessed about what is it for.
Lenovo utility does not appear in Start menu after installation, but it is installed in C:/Program Files/Lenovo/LenovoUtility. As you can see, in taskbar you have "Lenovo Utility" which is utility.exe. It just adds pop up windows when you press Caps Lock or Num Lock, like in Linux Mint cinnamon.

Re: Windows 10 clean install and lenovo utility

Windows 10 has been available for a couple of days and now active on over 200 million devices.  But you are like rest of us, having a custom PC or you just want a nice and clean installation then you will want to format and start over.  So, today we are going to discuss how to clean install Windows 10.

If your computer still runs Windows 7 or 8, you want to avoid upgrading using Windows Update. Instead, make yourself a Windows 10 installation media. We prefer using a USB Flash drive (thumb drive) since it works with all computers, including those without an optical drive. You’ll need a drive that’s 6GB or larger. Here are the steps.

Step 1: Download the media creation tool from Microsoft 

 

Step 2: Run the downloaded tool, choose Create installation media for another PC then click Next.

 

Step 3: In this step, you select the Language, Edition and Architecture for Windows 10, then click Next.

If you choose to make the installation media for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, you will need a thumb drive that has, at least, 6GB of storage space.

 

Step 4: Choose USB Flash drive as the media to use.

 

Step 5: Insert the flash drive into the computer’s USB port and click Next. After the drive is selected the tool will start downloading Windows 10. Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, the download can take anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours. Once the download is done, the tool will take another few minutes to turn the flash drive into Windows 10 installation media. You then can use this flash drive to upgrade or install Windows on any computer.

 

Step 6: Insert the installation media flash drive into a computer running Windows 7 or 8 that you want to upgrade. Open the drive in Explorer and double click on the Setup file. The upgrading process will start.

 

Step 7: After a short preparation, including checking for updates from the Internet and asking you to agree to terms and conditions, you will be greeted with the Ready to Install dialog, click on Change what to keep.

 

Step 8: In the next step, you can choose to keep Nothing (so that you’ll have a truly fresh Windows 10 install), Keep personal files only (your documents, music, photos, etc., will remain intact) or Keep personal files, apps or Windows settings (you will not have a clean installation of Windows 10.) After that click Next.
