Hi Thaimic, 

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

As I understand that you are facing issues while installing Windows 7 in your x260.

This error occurs because Intel Skylake architecture is USB 3.0 based, but the Microsoft Windows 7 boot.wim and install.wim do not have Intel USB 3.0 support added.

Here is the guide to install Windows 7 in ThinkPad systems. Also to add one more thing some x260 has NVMe Storage if thats the case this might help you and its quite a long process.

Here are few threads for your reference this & this.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 
Cheers,

Prabhansh

Hi again, 

 

For complete guide you can use this guide it contains all required steps. 

Or if you have any system running Windows 10 through this it is much simpler but requires Windows 10.

 

Update us how it goes!

 

Cheers

Prabhansh
