Re: [Guide] Windows 8.1 PRO RTM clean install on Yoga 13 from a USB Stick

Hello Samin,

    Please make sure that boot mode is UEFI in BIOS setup utility.

 

Also, Did you format the System partition in the installation wizard?

Re: [Guide] Windows 8.1 PRO RTM clean install on Yoga 13 from a USB Stick

Hello Crazy Diamond,

 

Thanks for the reply.

I have to mention that I have set the bios to boot in UEFI mode and as I don't need any data in hard drive i am formating all the dard drive but still after copying all the windows file to hard darive at file step I am getting this error!

 

I can't understand why!

Hello Samin,
Try doing the following in order:

- Restore BIOS settings to default factory settings.
- When prompted in the installation wizard, instead of formatting, delete the whole drive and then recreate it again.

Tell me how it goes.

Hello Crazy Diamond,

 

I tried it with 3 diffrent .iso and 2 diffrent usb sticks! still no luck Smiley Sad

I have to mention that I don't have problem in legacy mode!

 

Is there anything else comes to your mind?

Hello Samin,

       Have you done BIOS upgrade before installing WIN8.1? If no, then install WIN8, do the BIOS upgrade and reinstall WIN8.1.

Hello Samin,

        If I were you, I'd install WIN8 first then upgrade to WIN8.1.
