Failing Win 7 upgrade on 3000 K series

2010-06-04, 18:42 PM

Went to do a clean install of Windows 7. Chose to delete the existing partitions. (From Vista Home to Win 7 Home Premium 64bit).  Install said it would reboot a couple of times.

I wiped the partitions, and watched as Win 7 started to install files.  I walked away for a bit. Coming back I saw that the PC had rebooted, booted off the CD and took me back to the upgrade or install menu.

Now I cannot install onto the drive. I get a message indicating Windows cannot install on this drive. Check the BIOS settings to ensure this controller can boot this drive (or something like this).

I've tried wiping the partitions and attempted to create new with the same result.

 

Do I need to reinstall Vista (no recovery cds :-( ) and then attempt the upgrade again (and not walk away from the PC)?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Followup:

Trying to install Vista Home Premium 32Bit.  Tried HD setting of AHCI, IDE/Enh, and IDE/Compat.  All attempts say "Computer's h/w may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

If I attempt to continue, I get the following message:

"Windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation"

 

Have a Lenovo K100 3000 57068352, Serial # SS07595297.

 

Thoughts? Are there HD drivers that I need to download and have handy on USB drive?

 

Thanks!

Do you see you disk on BIOS???? Ensure that you disk is well connected.
