Re: X240 and X240s new software: Lenovo InstantOn Beta

2014-10-18, 21:12 PM

Hi, so I have a ThinkPad x240 which is running Windows 8.1. When I download the InstantOn .exe and open it, it prompts me for my language choice and then pops up with a window titled 'setup' saying 'cannot run on this system'. Why is this happening? Shouldn't I be able to download and install InstantOn with the laptop I have?

Hi ttrogier - do you have a Solid State hard Disc (SSD) in your system or do you have a traditional hard disk that spins (HDD)? It is should have been stated in the introductory materials but apparently InstantOn is only for SSD equipped systems.


If you do have a SSD (check your specs) then it could well be another problem...
