I'm trying to install Windows and the bios should be set to UEFI mode. The problem is that all SATA devices aren't showing up (shows as if there aren't any) so I can't boot from the installation CD (it's just not there).
The weird thing is that when set to LEGACY mode they all show up..
SATA mode is set to AHCI and I'm on Lenovo Y510P. I have a Linux OS installed that is accessible only when BIOS is in LEGACY mode (otherwise the hard drive it's on is not available)
I also tried reseting the BIOS settings which didn't help..
Comment please if more details needed
- Computer model: Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P (not overcloacked)
- Installed Linux OS version: Linux 3.7-trunk-amd64 x86_64
- Trying to install Windows: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
- BIOS Information:
- Vendor: LENOVO
- Version: 74CN26WW(V1.07)
Using user1608638 answer and suggestion of using the USB flash drive as the boot device instead of the CD/DVD method I succeeded in installing Windows 7! (Thanks alot user1608638)
