    How do I install Windows 10 onto my laptop correctly?


    Currently I am using Linux Mint. I switched from Windows 10 awhile ago. I now want to switch back to Windows 10 permanently. I have a few problems though.
    -I don't know how to configure the system and/or bios to allow the use of Intel Optane Memory
    -All of my previous partitions are deleted
    -I don't know how to correctly partition my drive according to the model of my computer, and the Intel Optane Memory

    I currently have a Lenovo Legion Y530.
    My main questions are: How do I install windows onto my laptop correctly? How do I configure my bios for the installation correctly? How do I partition my drive? How do I make good use of the Intel Optane Memory on my laptop?
    All-in-all, I just want my laptop to be configured the way it was when I bought it.

    Thank you so much in advance!

    P.S. - My Laptop

    Just install Windows 10 to your blank drive with no partitions on it (unallocated):
    Clean Install Windows 10

    After you get Windows 10 installed, you will need to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) user interface and driver:
    Downloads for Intel(R) Optane™ Memory

    The IRST driver will enable the use of Optane memory.

    Before doing that, should I just set all of my bios settings to default?

    You should be OK with your current settings but many consider it prudent to turn off secure boot and fast boot.

    Okay, great. Iíll do what you guys said, and Iíll mark it as solved once I get it working good. Until then, I might ask a few more questions. Thanks guys!

    After downloading Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) user interface and driver, it said that it requires a restart. After restarting, I reopened the "app", and clicked the continue button. It then said: "Error Enabling Intel Optane Memory." "Unsupported System BIOS or System BIOS is set in Legacy Mode. Contact your BIOS vendor for the latest version and support." "Error code: 0xA00800sD". This is the part that I was most afraid of. I remember there was something about RAID before I installed Linux Mint. I have no idea what RAID is or how it works though, or if it even has anything to do with this problem. Where do I go from here?

    See if you can find a Lenovo link that has information similar to this HP link:

    HP Customer Support - Knowledge Base
    HP PCs - Installing and Using Intel Optane

    Access Denied

    I can't seem to find any. I don't really know what I am looking for. I don't think the model you guys keep referring to is the exact model of the Lenovo Legion Y530 that I currently have.

    Update the specs in the "My Computer" section:

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums
    In the left corner below in your post you find 'My System Specs'.
    After clicking it you can find a link a little below that says 'Update your System Spec', click on this link to get to the page where you can fill in your system specs.
    System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Include PSU. cooler, case, peripherals and anything attached to the computer by wired or wireless (mouse, keyboard, headset, printer, xbox, USB wireless network card, etc.)


    Open the Lenovo website > enter the product or serial number or model > select the operating system > view drivers > post a URL or hyperlink into the thread

    See the HP link as the Intel Optane varies by model / hardware.
    If Lenovo is similar to HP > see if you can get support from Lenovo or Best Buy.
