Tablet WON'T start from any USB drive to the UEFI format unless it has the installer of Windows 8!

Hello! I've done many tutorials online, which none have worked. Here's my question:

I am trying to install Windows 7 on my shelf (I have on an another USB drivers). However, I plug it into the dock the Tablet and turn it on and go into the BIOS, and that's where. But when I try to boot from it, the screen flashes and it goes back to the boot in the BIOS. With the help of Rufus, I tried all combinations (TPG for UEFI, MBR computers for UEFI computers, etc.) and none of them work! To test if the USB was defective, I loaded an iso image 8.1 install 64-bit Windows on the drive, and to my surprise, it started from the drive and started the Setup program! I can't start the Windows 7 installation. I tested the stick in my laptop UEFI and it starts very well! What I am doing wrong? Will this work? probably not, but I am bit agitated-e-f (see below)

1 start from a Windows 8.1 Installation USB key, but by replacing all other files on the disk with the Windows 7 installation version so it force install Windows 7 instead of 8

System Specs:

Intel Atom Z3735F @ 1.33 GHZ (Turbo boost up to 1.83 GHz)


EEMC Samsung 32 GB Flash storage module

BIOS: Version 2.16.1242 Aptio Setup utility

Interesting thing is that in the BIOS, it is said that to enable secure boot (did not you or off), CSM must be disabled. I guess it is, but I can't find where to turn them back on. Site Web de American Megatrend will not let you submit a support ticket, unless you are in a company :|

Thank you!



I can certainly understand your concern. As it is a problem with the BIOS of the computer, and the preceding troubleshooting steps provided by the Support engineer do not work, I suggest you contact the manufacturer.

For more information, do not hesitate to contact us. We will be more than happy to help you.

    I try to install the SP1 of Windows 2008 R1 on T420. However, it does not detect the disk and asks me to load the Setup disk.

    Now, I downloaded the driver from:

    Put it on a key USB and then the wizard to detect the USB but then he said: 'no signed device drivers were found.

  • recognize the hard drive in the installation of windows

    I saw a couple of discussions on the same issue, but I've never really seen any resolution.

    Basically the hard drive died on a 400 XPS that has one of my friends.  Don't not tech trend may it staring at me.  He has unfortunately had no CD.  Leaving that issue behind, I acquired a replacement hard drive and when I go to install it on windows, windows will not recognize the player as being there to install on.

    Now I realize that I have to press F6 to load drivers to allow windows to see the SATA drive.  His point that escapes me.   I can't find the drivers to be able to do.  The dell with the drivers page doesn't seem to have what I'm looking for, unless I'm totally their lack which I won't deny is possible.

    So basically I'm looking for assistance in finding these drivers told to reinstall windows.

  • X200T not boot from any device after updating the Bios v3.00


    I recently updated my bios to the latest version, the v3.00 X200T and now it does not start from any device - everything I get a blank screen after the initial bios starts upward.

    The bios seems functional and it recognizes all the devices I attached, as well as the internal hard drive. However no matter how to start the machine it does not start. I tried to set the boot order in the bios, using F12, F11 for recovery, remove the internal HARD disk, used all the USB ports, etc... -all I get is a blank screen after the initial splash screen.

    No beeps to indicate any problems, and I tried to reset the default settings of the bios, remove battery & power - all to nothing does not.

    Any ideas?

    I updated the bios of many laptops and desktop computers in the past, but this is a new one on me...

    I hope someone can help.


    It seems that it also happens to X 200 owners who upgrade to version 3.01 of the Bios.

    mc2sgp has posted a response in this forum that worked for me:

    "I have the same problem and found the way to a temporary solution."  Go into the BIOS (you should always be able to press F1 to go into the BIOS) and go to Config-> CPU Intel VT - d characteristic of-> and disable it.  You should now be able to start normally in your operating system. "

    At least, I can now start my camera.

    Hope this helps others.


    ADMIN edit: tagging this post as the solution to guide others to the bypass.  Lenovo will remove the BIOS on the web and replace it with an updated version that resolves these symptoms as quickly as possible.

  • Adobe PS CS4 do not 'see' my USB Drives in the Finder

    For some weird reason, PS CS4 is no longer "find" my USB 2 TB disk in window Finder/devices on my iMac (nothing is displayed in devices).  However, it is to see my readers of my WD NAS, and if I go in the Finder on mine, it shows USB drives.  The WD drives are a MyBook of 2 TB and a MyCloud TB 3.  I had some problems with _those_ readers appear in the Finder, but its usually a WD firmware issue... and his generally more MyBook drive that gives me problems.  Anyway... the USB 2 TB above also appears (as it should) on the RIGHT side of my iMac screen.  The drive works very well, and I tried to always turn off the computer and the USB key... don't show using Photoshop.  I can search in the finder to the file I want, and then right-click to open in "Adobe Photoshop", but I'm so used to enter, edit and save files in CS4 that I am puzzled that this player all of a sudden cannot be 'seen' leave in PS CS4.  Previously, he had been, so I assume its a few parameters or issue preferences?

    Hi DrGrafix,

    Can you please try to activate a new user account and check if the PS CS4 is able to locate your USB key.

  • During the installation of Windows 7 or 8.1 using a USB stick - get the message "cannot be installed, it is a GPT.


    During the installation of Windows 7 or 8.1 using a USB stick - get the message "cannot be installed, it is a GPT partition.

    I have 64 bit install discs for Win 7 and Win 8.1. These two install on my desktop in duel boot. I made a Flash DRIVE of each disk so I can install it more quickly.

    Problem: I get the cannot install because it is a GPT partition.

    Y at - there no way to make these 2 USB sticks work?

    Thank you, Brad

    Make sure you create your media recovery HP or USB Flash Recovery discs before you edit or change anything.

    Your computer does not have Microsoft's Downgrade rights and you must buy a copy of Windows 7 with a valid Microsoft COA and product key.

    The screenshots below is from a laptop HP 15 t-j100... options and the configuration on your computer screens may differ.

    You will need to DISABLE "Secure Boot" and ENABLE "Legacy Support" in the "Configuration of the BIOS start-up secure" on the settings page similar to what is shown below, until you try to install Windows 7.

    After you save the changes, the computer will ask you to confirm the changes... Accept the changes by typing the four digit code and press the ENTER"" key.

    If you install Windows 7 from a USB and see a message of "load a driver - a required CD/DVD drive device is missing", it's because as 'System Configuration' > 'Config USB3.0 in pre-start' is set to 'Enabled '. This should be set to 'Auto '.

    In addition, as the factory hard drive is partitioned as TPG, you must start using the internal CD/DVD UEFI or UEFI-Key/key USB to install Windows on a GPT-partitioned disk. Turn on or restart the computer and press "F9" or "ESC", then "F9" when prompted. Select the source of boot UEFI you use and you press "ENTER".

    I suggest using Windows 7 SP1 for the best installation experience. If the DVD does not start as UEFI, you may need to use a USB Flash drive (can ask "Quick start" DISABLING in BIOS) as the installation media. Please note that some computers may not recognize a valid active UEFI USB Flash drive if it is formatted in NTFS and may require only a FAT32 formatted USB Flash drive. You should be able to make a FAT32 formatted Windows 7 installation USB Flash drive using Rufus, UNetbootin, Universal USB Installeror WiNToBootic. I like Rufus, because it contains options for 'Plan of GPT partition for UEFI computer' and 'FAT32'.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

  • The following error during the installation of Windows: "cannot start Windows. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

    Help, please! Installing Windows Interrupted!

    Hi recently my computer was giving me a bit of concern for example (running slow, do not easily light etc...). A couple of days, my computer has decided not to put on after a glance on the net (on my other computer), I found I had a problem call KSoD or black screen of death, therefore I went on youtube and made all the different things said youtubers can fix this how ever none of these things worked, so finally I decided that I would have factory reset my computer/windows to using the system restore. However, at half way through the installation of windows after the factory reset (my computer came with no disk Windows), my computer has decided to remove what I believe to be called a blue screen of death, that this happened before and I thought it was part of the installation but when I turned my computer on he showed at the bios screen , but then it said 'unable to start Windows. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To solve the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. choose your language settings, and then click Next. "3 click on repair your computer ' all this is very well apart from the fact that I do not have the windows installation disc. I'm stuck at this screeni however have a disc of windows 7 and that he was going to install windows7 after I got my vista Setup! but the only I see is the bio screen so I was wondering if there was some way I could install windows 7 from the bios or simply delete the entire half installed this error files windows vista from the bios screen? Please, any help is greatly appreciated. Or get a new internal HDD would fix the problem aswell?

  • Problems with the installation of Windows 7 Home Premium: ask load the driver during installation

    I am currently using Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP3 with specification of my computer as below:

    Intel Pentium D 3.40 GHz 3.39 GHz

    3.5 GB RAM

    I tried to upgrade to Windows 7 by restarting my computer and boot from the CD. Setup goes as usual, initially, he asked for the language installation during installation, and after I clicked OK, the window titled "Load driver" had appeared with his message as below;

    "To install the device driver required to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files and then click OK."

    What are the problems really? Because I think I have all the necessary drivers and before that everything works fine. Where can I get the drivers? And how to solve this?

    Help, please. Thank you. :)

    • Disable the general USB peripherals (for example - smart card reader).
    • If you are using a SCSI drive, make sure you have the drivers available for your storage on a thumdrive device and it is connected. During the installation of Windows 10, click on the advanced custom Option and use the command load driver to load the driver for the SCSI drive. If this does not work and the installer still fails, consider switching to an IDE based hard drive.
    • If you have an external equipment, attached to the machine, unplug them (example, game controllers, USB sticks, external hard drive, printers, peripherals not essential).
