Windows 10 Clean Install

2021-09-07, 3:25 AM

Hello,

 

I know this may sound silly, but how do I do a clean install on an Yoga 7i?

 

I know how to format a computer, but when I try to install Windows from a flash drive created by Windows Media Tool, I have several problems. 

 

First of all, the trackpad doesn’t work. This can be fixed using a USB mouse. 

 

But the main issue is that the hard drive doesn’t show when you click on where to install it. 

 

So, you have to disable VMD on the Bios, but I don’t want to do that because I can’t enable back later without crashing Windows. 

 

Some folks recommended installing a driver for the HDD and Windows will find it, but I couldn’t find a driver that works. Some people recommended the IRST driver, but it didn’t work for me. 

 

How do you guys do a clean install on the Yoga 7i without all these issues?

Hello @ MHAlmeida !

 

Thanks for posting here at the Community Forums!

 

Please share here your Yoga 7 laptop's MTM (machine type-model) number first for us to check its specifications as this would also help us detail more about your machine variant while keeping the confidentiality of your serial number.

 

It can be seen through the device's label/sticker or its original packaging and does usually have a format of 8********R as an example.

 

Here's a link as well that contains additional methods in obtaining your device's details.

 

Thanks,

Adriel_Lenovo

Thanks for responding @ MHAlmeida !

 

Please click on this link to see the steps on how to use the Lenovo Digital Download Recovery Service or DDRS in order to reinstall Windows on your device.

 

Please note that this step will erase all data that's stored in the device so make sure to backup them up first to avoid data loss.

 

Hope this helps you out.

 

Thanks,
