    i keep running into problems upgrading windows 8 (reinstalling) its a pain, i have upgraded bios by usb, the drives keep saying unable to install ? any help, much appreciated.


    Is this a fresh install of win8? If so how did you format your HDD/SSD??

    yes fresh install the novo button doesnt seem to be installing from recovery, ive tried changing all the usual bios setting uefi/legacy etc etc

    I had a problem before when doing a fresh install on win7 and for the life of me it wouldn't install the drivers (error message kept on popping up) even tho I formatted my SSD using diskpart. I then ran command prompt (Admin) then formatted with diskpart and everything was fine after that.

    Microsoft offer the Windows 8 installer themselves, so if the built in Lenovo recovery is working then you could try that:…ws8
