Lenovo Y50: Windows 8.1 to Windows 7

2015-02-19, 2:41 AM

I want to downgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 on a Lenovo Y50. Is this possible? I would also like to keep one key recovery intact but perhaps make it work for Windows 7 instead of Windows 8, is this possible too? Thank you for your help.

Hi Caffrey,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per the query we understood that you are looking for Operating System down gradation from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 on your Lenovo Y50.

 

Yes, it will support but I request you to create the recovery media before doing any changes in the system. If you down-grade the OS you cannot use One Key Recovery option and it is not possible to re-configure the One Key Recovery option.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar

Hi Caffrey,

 

Thank you for the reply!

 

I am sorry to inform you that there is no way to get the windows key for Windows 7 OS, you have to purchase the recovery media from nearby authorized Lenovo service center on chargeable basic.

 

METHODOLOGY TO CREATE RECOVERY MEDIA AND RELOAD A LENOVO THINK SYSTEM WITH MICROSOFT WINDOWS 8 PRELOAD

 

Note: Please keep the recovery media safely.

 

Hope this helps.
