L520 GUIDE TO SOFTWARE INSTALLATION

Hello to  everyone!

 

I live in Greece and i ve bought a L520 laptop some days ago.The laptop has no preinstalled os but i already have a windows 7 64 bit license, and i d like to ask if there΄s a guide to help me through the  whole installation and  if there's a need of installing Intel or Lenovo software before or after win7 installation .

Thank you

Hi mihakalo

 

Try to check first if the machine has the recovery partition so it can do a factory recovery:

 

  • Turn On the computer
  • Hit the blue Thinkvantage button on boot
  • Check for the factory reset options

If you don't have the recovery partition, the good thing is that you can do a normal Windows 7 installation on the machine and Lenovo has all the drivers published on its web site:

But there is another thing that I like. Thinkvantage System Update can also help you to install the missing drivers once you install Windows. (but possible you will need to install the network drivers first to have internet access).

 

Check this software at:

I hope this helps.
