I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E430 with Ubuntu 12.04 installed on it.
Today I downloaded Windows 8 Professional and Windows 8.1 Professional (yes, really, read on) from DreamSpark. But when I boot from the Win8 CD, it only displays a brick-colored column pattern. When I try to install the Win8.1, it starts but then tells me there is a driver missing.
UPDATE: Win 8 disk is bad and does not boot on any computer.
No CD came with the laptop. There is no option to go on with the installation. It also did not tell me exactly what the missing driver is.
Do you have any idea on how to fix this?
UPDATE: It writes, that the missing driver is a media driver - "it may be USB, hard drive or optical drive". I tried to put some drivers I DL-ed from support.lenovo.com on a flash drive and connect it when asked, but nothing changed.
