Hi All,

I have window vista and I am trying to replace it with Window7. I have a bootable USB and used the tool poweriso to create bootable usb drive(from window7 iso) with my 8Gb Transcend.

Yesterday ,I used the same 8GB Transcend USB to install Window 7 on my friend's Dell laptop;It worked perfectly.

Today I was trying to do it on my Lenovo Y410.

My laptop does show the USB in boot options( I put it as the top option) but Once I try to boot my device with my USB, I get a white cursor with black screen.


Is there any problem with Lenovo Y410. Can someone help me with this?

MBR or partiton boot code dosn't match BIOS layout.

Try diskpart to prepare the USB drive.

Or use a sticky tool.

Also try hitting F12 at boot for a device selection menu. Some Lenovos have that enabled by default, others there is an option for it in the BIOS.

Dear cdob,

Still the bootable USB is not working .

I did these steps:

Using diskpart:
Clean USB drive
Create primary partition
Format partition as FAT32
Set partition as active
Copy DVD files or extract official ISO onto the drive
Boot PC from USB and install


I did all the above steps

Open the command prompt
Type: diskpart
Type: list disk
This will show all connected disks, their disk numbers, connection status and disk size
Using the sizes, determine which disk is your USB drive and remember its disk number (i.e. Disk 2)
Type the following commands: (where X is the disk number of your USB drive)
sel dis X
clean
cre par pri
active
format fs=fat32 Quick Format
exit
+
I made an image using daemon tools and copied the files into USB drive

Try to use BOOT_USB.exe to Format Stick with NTFS FileSystem
and have the CHS Knockout Patches applied which are probably needed in your case.
