Lenovo MiiX 320 - Impossible to install Windows 10

2021-04-12, 17:01 PM

Hello,

I have a Lenovo MiiX 320 that my son gave me. He installed Linux on it, but I am not so good with it, so I wanted back Windows.

I tried to install it so many times I lost count. I tried everything, different USB drives, different software, different configurations and I always end up where, when I boot it up from the USB, it is almost impossible for me to understand how to move forward due to the image being fuzzy and full of lines (please check the attached image).

The screen is in portrait, no landscape, but this would not be an issue if I would be able to see, but I can't understand anything from the screen.

Is there anyone, that can help me out?

I also tried this solution with no luck: Failure to install WIndows-English Community (lenovo.com)

 

Thank you

Hello to all,

 

I found thee solution, so I think would be useful for others to know what to do if they will encounter such issue.

 

After trying everything possible, lastly, I downgraded the version of Windows I was trying to install, from 20H2 to 1909 and it worked!

The only annoying thing was the portrait screen during the installation, but the updates solved this and the screen returned to (normal) landscape.

 

Everything works again, and even Dolby installed itself

 

Thank you

Hello Arf1,

 


Greetings

Can you access BIOS? Is it the same blurry screen when you're at the BIOS menu?

Dear Lorenzo_Lenovo,

 

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to reply me.

 

Yes, I can access the BIOS, and everything is normal. Actually, everything everywhere works, no blurry screen, except when I try to install Windows.

I have no more ideas what to do, because I tried (I think) everything. I really hope that there is a solution I don't know yet.

 

Thank you

Thank you for sharing it here.
Hopefully incoming Windows updates will have a patch to completely solve this problem.

Oh man, I'm sure Lenovo CEO just nutted his pants over your threats.

I thought I will not reply, since Mr. Lorenzo told you very politely to open your own thread, but then, here you are threatening with legal actions over an old 100$/€ tablet with no warranty (if you had a warranty you would not be here). Do you know what are you talking about?

First of all, start by being polite!

Second, I can understand your frustration, but if you are polite, maybe someone will reply.

Third, Lenovo did nothing to brick your device. If the Windows update bricked it, than is not and will never be Lenovo's fault.

Fourth, Lenovo provided you with recovery options. Did you tried to recover the pc from the recovery partition?

Fifth, if there is no recovery available, find an older version of Windows 10, create a bootable USB drive and reinstall it.

That's it man, do what you can, and if you have issues, then come online and ask for a help, but don't make threats, because no one like bullies.

All the best and good luck!
