    Lenovo G500 driver support


    Hi,
    I have Lenovo G500, and I would like to do clean installation of Windows 10 (I prefer so rather than upgrade)
    According to this thread in Lenovo:
    Lenovo G500 WIndows 10 drivers - Lenovo Community
    This laptop may have issues with Windows 10 and I don't know how to resolve them or
    whether they're still relevant.
    Thanks for anyone who may help

    Hi and welcome!
    I have a 5 year old Lenovo G570. Reinstalling with Window 10 and no problems. Windows has all the relevant drivers installed directly. Only the card reader drivers I had to look. And that was not a problem.

    Thank you,
    Can you please tell me what are the consequences of a clean install?
    does it delete Lenovo's recovery?
    So windows installs automatically everything
    And I guess I should retain the "Lenovo" D partition

    If the recovery on C: is, then after a reinstallation of course all gone. Should the recovery but on D: there are no problem. For a Clean Install all previous data is lost. Therefore, the best back up any important data and folders.

    OK, now that I try to get my usb to boot, I don't find it in the BIOS
    what's more is that the BIOS states that Windows 8 64-bit is my
    default OS. How do I change that?

    The USB must be connected to be detected. If it is not detected the first time, keep it connected and reset the computer with CTRL+ALT+DEL. Then it will be available. But you don't need to change the boot order in the BIOS. You can just press F12 or whichever is the hotkey to select boot device. Select your USB and start Setup. When presented with available partitions, you can delete them all and proceed. Recovery won't work anyway without installing the recovery utility from Lenovo. After into Windows 10, you can click on the search icon (magnifying glass) and type Device. Click Device Manager to open and check if any device hasn't a driver installed yet. Visit Lenovo's site and download the missing driver. It is also a good idea to reinstall the graphics driver for best performance, as Microsoft's generic driver is rather basic.

    Have a look at this tutorial before you begin.
