Y500 Fresh w7 Installation PLEASE!

2013-06-01, 19:56 PM

Good afternoon people,

First of all thank you for give me the opportunity to ask my question. Very good forum.

In a couple of days I get my IdeaPad Y500, comes with w8.

I want to obviously put the W7 (which I have the original cd), but I don't know how to do it and Idon't  want to compromise the machine and  or guarantee.

I could not find the solution under the web, could you  please give me the links or step by step how to do this installation?

            Thank you very much, greetings from Argentina

                              Mariano

Welcome to the forum Mariano! :smileyhappy:

 

In the top right corner, there is a "search" box.  If you enter "Y500 Win 7" in that box, the first thread listed is:

Read that thread. It seems to be what you're looking for.

 

EDIT: Make sure you create the Win 8 recovery disks, BEFORE you make any changes to your OS. They may come in handy. :smileywink:

 

Cheers,
