I have updated BIOS from AHCI to Compatible. I have Windows 7 Home on a bootable flash drive. When I boot, it boots fine, but after starting, it is looking for a NTFS formatted drive and needs more than 3.8G.
Can anyone help?
Any questions please ask, I would like to get this ideapad running with Windows 7.
Thanks for your time in advance.\

Hi and welcome,
be sure that your Ideapad S10e is updated to BIOS >96 , you can get it IdeaPad S9e,S10e,S10-4329 & 4333 : Ideapad S10e Vs. a0 that support Win7.
For windows 7 its not necessary to set BIOS Configuration Sata mode AHCI to compatible ...
Windows 7 should recognize your sata drive ... seems that windows 7 found only your install flashdrive (3,7GB)..
that could be if you did not delete all partiitons ... you can prepare this before with i.e. partitionwizard ,
best is delete .. all partitions and create one active primary min 30 GB thats enough for windows 7 and a second part for your data... pics movies music document.....
