Re:Unable to install windows 8.1 in Lenovo yoga 7i 14 (default OS = windows 10)

2021-02-23, 5:34 AM
Thanks for the link, I had tried using another laptop, another Pendrive, another OS(UBUNTU, UBUNTU GNOME), another software (universal USB installer, RUFUS). Do you have any idea about the windows 8.1 compatibility in this machine cause the default OS is Windows 10?

Hello there! Sorry for the really late reply.

Just to make sure here, Is the USB bootable in the other laptop you tested? Do you able to boot to Ubuntu on your laptop? Where do you get the Windows 8.1 ISO?

 

I try to install Windows 8.1 on my own machine which also comes in Windows 10 as a default and it works ( got to the install menu ) ( didnt install it on the disk tho )

Which should tell that theres no compatibility issue 

I'm using rufus with an old Kingston USB.  


Can you try to use my rufus configuration? Try changing the partition scheme to GPT

I used the Windows 8.1 iso from here

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply.

 

Yes, I did a test on another laptop and it worked. Yes I had tried by installing UBUNTU's latest version(though it was saying lots of chips are unable to install)) and tried to find out the way to install windows but couldn't figure out how to install it. I got windows 8.1 from my friend's very old backup. 

 

 I wonder if the Windows version is specific to this machine, what do you reckon?

 

Thanks for the Rufus configuration snapshot, is the Rufus version is specific or I can use the latest version?

I used the latest rufus version. I think its better to use the Windows 8.1 ISO from the Microsoft site.

Thanks much appreciated.

 

Windows was successfully installed, I did as you said. I am facing another problem now.

 

While restarting, it's showing a blue screen with Error code: 0xc0000001. I have attached the photo  of the error, do you have any idea how to fix this ?

Nice!

It seems that the photo didnt get attached?

Based on MSERREF, 0xc0000001 ( STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL) means {Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful.
