Windows 7 for Lenovo G50-70 - the computer will not boot from the CD

Hello world

I hope that someone here will be able to help

I bought a new laptop with Windows 8.1. I want to install Windows 7 on that I know well because I can't use the new windows. I changed the settings in the BIOS to get the machine to boot from the CD, but it won't be fair. I also tried to restore the system to boot from the CD, but it installs just the Windows pre-installed, new instead. Also, I can't access the CD from the drive while all my other computers are capable of (what is strange)

Can someone help, please?

See you soon

PS. : I can turn on the computer through the small "boot botton" on the side and select the DVD drive to boot from. But this is not followed by the message "Press any key to boot from CD" and the computer starts just W8 yet;

I contacted customer service and followed your advice. They refused to help him on the ground that there nothing wrong with the machine in their opinion, and since I wanted to change operating system. All preinstalled spyprogrammes Lenovo has been erased with this downgrade. So far, I've owned a laptop computer brand new and expensive for a year I used only to waste my time, trying to make it work, that was not why I bought it in the first place. What a RIP-OFF!

  • Installation: Windows Vista Service Pack 2... Now my computer will not boot

    After you install SP2, my computer starts is no longer.

    When I turn it on, it brings me to a black screen where I can choose to start windows normally or let windows search for a solution to the problem. I tried both - NOTHING WORKS.

    I tried to restore my computer to an earlier date, let windows search for a solution, everything you can possibly do on the options list. Whenever I have let windows start normally, it brings me to a black screen that says "!" 0 x 0000034! "177/76190 (_0000000000000000.cdf - ms).

    I am extremely frustrated. It seems that Microsoft has ruined my computer. Looks like I'm about to become a defender-apple... Unless this issue is resolved as soon as possible.

    Have you tried the system restore, without success.

    See if that will fix your problem:

    Download the ISO on the provided link and do a repair of the disc.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

  • Z575 will not boot from the hard drive or restore DVD

    Need help on a laptop Z575 age of 2 years that immediately after an automatic update of windows, will not start either from the hard disk or restore DVDs (blue screen). Does not start in safe mode, not booting from a rescue of third party DVD. Attempt to start, it will show you the ability to start the Startup Repair tool. Repair shows that it is unable to fix with the detail following problem error messages:
    Signature of the problem 1: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of problem 2: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of the problem 3: unknown
    Signature of the 4:21200196 problem
    Signature problem 5: auto failover
    Signature of the problem 6:7
    Signature of the 7 problem: bad driver
    OS version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

    Normally think that the hard drive has failed or that windows update caused a software problem, but the inability to boot from any restore disk that makes me think that there is another serious problem with the hardware of the laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated. THX

    Additional note: when you try to boot from a restore disc, blue screen, error message:
    Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    It is a hardware failure that cannot be restarted soft.

    I also removed the hard drive and RAM, reinstalled and rebooted, no change.

    Additional note: I was able to access the hard drive with a recovery of old program, focused on the (SpaceFM) ram charged through the DVD player. Hard drive data appears intact. Still does not start from the hard disk or a DVD of windows system.

    Thank you. Rather than buying a 4 GB or more large key USB comes from put this into hard drive replacement. Installed correctly, boots very well now. No other error of the optical drive... and no explanation I can see, but that's it.

    Unless something else pops up we'll just call cela a HARD drive failed after 2 years of common use. Thanks again.

    I have deleted 1 of 3 users on XP Pro.  The program allowed me to save the contents to a folder on the desktop, I did.  I checked the desktop, all data file and pix were there. Then I rebooted.  Open my user account.  All icons were present, but empty, no program.  Go to START - programs, all programs present but empty.  Could not run any program.  I restarted again, and after the Dell startup screen, the screen is black.  Cannot start in safe mode, will not open windows.  I have an XP Reinstall disk but not a recovery disk.

  • Tecra M3 PTM30A will not boot from the cd to reinstall windows

    Hi all

    Totally new here and I have a question. I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died.
    I set the bios to boot from the cd. He reads the Windows XP cd for a minute then jump to trying to boot on the network adapter.

    Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?
    If it can boot from a normal cd is the stuffed ROM or am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help you.

    Hello

    > I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died

    Your new hard drive is recognized by the Bios?

    > Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?

    You can use a recovery (if available) disk or Windows disk copy. In the Bios, you must set the Cd/DVD-ROM as 1st boot device and press F10 save and exit. Turn it back on. Thus, your computer you should start the installation of the Cd drive.

    I use Windows XP and my DVD player in my computer does not read it. I try to operate in driver D and I also used E driver

    You try to play a DVD?

    FWIW... Win XP cannot natively recognize Commercial
    DVD video... it requires a DVD decoder.

    If you could play before commercial video DVD...
    do a system restore to a time before this started
    may be your solution.

    Or you could buy a DVD decoder at the following link:

    Info about DVD decoders:

  • HP Pavilion p7-1414 will not boot from the CD

    Hello

    I recently bought your desktop HP Pavilion p7 1414, I am trying to boot from a CD to reinstall Windows 8 - I put the CD to start first in the BIOS, but when I restart the computer and I have the CD, "press any key to boot from the CD" is not displayed.  It starts just directly to the computer HARD disk in Windows to connect.

    I have 64-bit Windows 8. 6 GB of RAM and a terabyte of HARD drive space.  I'm looking to reinstall Windows 8 for a new start.  Any ideas why it won't boot from the CD?

    Very happy!

    Hello:

    You must go into the BIOS and enable the legacy Mode and disable secure boot.

  • NB100 will not boot from the XP CD in the external USB CD/DVD drive

    I try to install XP Home in my NB100
    The netbook still refuses to boot from the XP CD. It's just not more
    Returns the current operating system (Ubuntu) or give the error "Could not find NTLDR" dreaded.
    And yet - it will boot from an Ubuntu Live CD disk perfectly fine, AND
    If I connect this external hard drive on my computer Windows 7, (another Toshiba
    Portable satellite) that the machine starts quite successfully since the XP CD
    in the same external drive!

    Can anyone throw any light on what is happening on Earth on?

    Hello

    There are various reasons why this error message:
    In most cases this error because the laptop is trying to boot from a HARD drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly. Maybe the drive is not bootable or not compatible.

    It would also be possible that some sectors on the HARD disk, HARD drive failures are corrupt or BIOS is damaged. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is damaged.

    In your case I recommend that you format the first HARD drive before booting from the hard drive CD7DVD external using Win XP CD.

    By the way: you must add SATA driver to CD Win XP using nLite.
    The SATA driver is placed on the European driver Toshiba page in the Intel Storage Manager

    The SATA driver is needed to recognize the HDD by Win XP!

  • Update Service Pack 2 is not installed, now my computer will not boot

    Hello. I recently tried to install the service pack 2 update on my computer. It did not installed. My computer is slow, so I tried restarting. It came with the screen that shows the updates are being installed. I kept the computer until it stops.

It will turn on / off power permanently. In an attempt to fix it, I managed to get in the log on screen and put in my password, but the minute I hit enter my computer started and closed the loop on endless. Anyone know what I can do?

  • Computer will not download from the internet

    I saw on this site that other people have similar problems with Vista suddenly refusing to download anything on the internet, even if they use a different browser.  Personally, I use Firefox and the same problem occurs even if I use IE.  I tried all the methods disabiling my Add-ons, restarted my laptop, etc.  No one answered that these methods have worked.  I don't see if it is malware on my laptop because I can not download the removal tool.  I was able to download Vista SP2 and other updates, but that was it.  Nothing else does.  Is there another way to solve this thorny problem?  This issue started back around April of this year after an update for an Ipod.

  • Windows 8 HP laptop Pavilion will not boot from the cd?

    Hi all

    I have a Windows 8 HP Pavilion laptop. I forgot the password of my account, but I wasn't worried because I had a recovery disc. However, even with the cd in the laptop, I directed to the login page every time. I want the cd to run the place and recover my account! I have enabled the legacy in BIOS and disable secure startup, and I even changed my boot order to put the boot first CD. None of this works well. Can someone help me? I really want to access my laptop soon.

    Thank you

    Immediately after switching on the laptop, press the ESC key to get a menu. Then press F9 boot options. Use the arrow key to move down and select/highlight the CD/DVD drive, and then press the Enter key.
