Any computer system builders or installers? I need help badly
I'm having a real pita time trying to get windows 7 installed on a new machine that came with windows 8.1. Brand new Lenovo Y50, not a single personal file on it this is the first thing I'm doing with it...I have all the drivers for the devices saved on another computer and usb drive.
There is no optical drive on the machine, so I'm using a bootable usb drive with a legit win 7 iso file (i have the activation code and cd).
But when I get into the install after finally getting the damn thing to boot through the USB without telling me i'm missing drivers, I can't get the installer to create a new partition on the main drive.
All the old info and partitions are deleted and the drive has been cleaned/formatted ntfs/assigned/set as active all through diskpart, etc. but still get the error...
Anyone have knowledge and time to walk me through this damn thing?
