Downgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 7 Lenovo Yoga Pro 3

2016-12-14, 14:26 PM

Dear All,

 

I got a user who asked me to downgrade from Windows 10 to 7 on his yoga 3. 

I'm encountering a lot of problems since when I tried to start the windows 7 installation both from usb boot and CD, the system gives me an error regarding some driver missing.

 

I performed a low level format so the PC is clean. After some researches I understood that the problem could be related to the usb3.0 drivers that are missing on the win7 image. So I tried to upgrade the .wim with the DISM feature using the CMD.

 

This didn't work either. 

 

Honestly at this point I don't know how to proceed. I used both 2.0 and 3.0 bootable usb drives (with the driver update) and I tried with the Installation CD.

 

Do you have any suggestion?

 

Thanks for your help

 

Kind Regards,

 

Alessio

Hi Alessio,
