    Win7 Installation Issue on broken Win10 System. (Lenovo Notebook)


    The situation: Expired Win10 Indsider upgrade installation, no longer booting (winload.exe / 0x0000605)

    Attempted solution: Reinstalling Win7 from DVD

    Problem: Win10 ignores the boot sequence, always boots from HDD. Changed boot sequence to select DVD ROM and tried from the boot menu during system start. After loading the DVD a while, it always boots to Win10 repair screen. (No secure boot options found in BIOS, maybe hidden?)

    Win10 is driving me nuts, as I can't reinstall Win7 anymore. Any ideas please?

    :)

  2. lenovo maschine with win10 64Bit connected to the beamer it apears with stripes

    We took 2 Notebook 1 Dell machine with win10 and 1 Lenovo machine with win10 64Bit.

    Wen we attach the devices Dell or Lenovo to the beamer it appears with stripes.

    As soon as you put down the resolution to 1280 x 800 then the stripes disappear and all works fine.

    1280x800 is the highest resolution on both devices where the beamer works fine.

    The other way is to use the adapter and VGA cable ( lower resolution ) then it works fine.”

    1. Lenovo with Win7 32Bit System it automatically puts the resolution down to 1280x800

    2. Dell Notebook with Win7 32Bit System it automatically puts the resolution down to 1280x800

    This means that the Win10 image does not automatically put down the resolution and this is producing the issue with the Reamers.

    Can you please help and suggest?

    Windows 7 System Image Not Found on External USB HDD after Windows 10 Backup

    I've been successfully saving and restoring Window 7 system images to/from an external USB HD for years. I've successfully restored these Win7 images using a system repair DVD.

    Prior to installing Windows 10, I saved a system image to the external HD. After installing Win10, I saved a system image to this same HD.

    Now Win10 is randomly freezing, so I wish to restore the latest Win7 image. If I attempt to do this from Win10 Repair, all the old Win7 images are listed, but if I attempt to restore one of these, Win10 Repair says it cannot restore a Win7 image.

    When I attempt to restore using the Win7 repair DVD, it fails with the "System Image Not Found" message. The HD is accessible, since I can browse it from a command window. It appears that saving a Win10 image on this HD has broken Win7 system repair.

    Any ideas about how to restore a Windows 7 system image in this situation?

    Try it again with the steps listed below. Please don't deviate.
    Go to Boot Order screen > make sure boot order is CD/DVD > insert the Win 7 DVD > Exit Boot Order screen > shut down > restart.....

    Thank you for your reply. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right, as it still boots to HDD / Win10

    - Reboot (Ctrl+Alt+Del)
    - Hit "Enter" then F12 for boot selection
    - DVD is displayed first, HDD second.
    - Insert DVD to drive
    - Press "escape" to leave boot menu. Sitting at blank screen, flashing dos prompt
    - Hold power button to shut down
    - Press power button to turn on.

    ...still boots to win10

    ...still boots to win10 .............

    I thought you said " no longer booting ".

    Are you saying you can actually login to the expired Win 10 ?
    Yes or No, please reply. It is very important.

    One more question :
    How is it possible you could let an Insider Preview expired ?

    No, logging in is no longer possible. It'll boot into the repair options. (winload.exe expired)

    How is it possible you could let an Insider Preview expired?
    You'd better ask that my wife. ( Need I say more? ;-) )

    Sorry, I have no idea how to help you any further.
    Others in this forum most likely have better ideas than I.
    Please wait a bit for them to come along.

    Last resort will be taking the computer and the Win 7 DVD with product key to you "trusted" local computer store and ask for help.

    Are you sure your Windows 7 DVD is good? When you try to boot from it do you get the initial request to "Press any key to boot from DVD"? Also, what type of Windows 7 are you trying to install, is it a full retail version, OEM version or a recovery DVD made for a specific computer system?

    Yes, the DVD is good. It'll run on other computers. I'm not prompted to press a key to boot fomr DVD though. It'll load the DVD for a short while and then go to the Win10 repair screen. From what I've read so far, it's an issue with secure boot - but I can't find any options in the BIOS to disable secure / fast boot.

    It may be you are having issues reading dvd on the notebook.

    You could download Windows 7 iso from MS using

    Windows 7

    and then use rufus to write iso files to a usb stick.

    Then change your bios settings to boot from usb stick and use that instead.

    The above assumes you Windows 7 key is a retail (not oem) key.

    Model is a Lenovo Thinkpad 030246G.

    As the OS came with the notebook, I'm assuming the key is an OEM version.

    Pre-installed product key will NOT be accepted by the Windows 7 link given to you.
    It only accepts Retail version.

    I know because I tried that a year ago with my pre-installed Win 7 product key. It was rejected.
