Re: Creating Vista Installation Disk

You can use a "ghosting" utility such as Norton Ghost, etc.

I have a lenovo g540..why not supported window 7 ? if i installing window 7 always blue screen when completing installation

All computers with minimum requirements are able to install Windows 7.
The installation CD you are using must be faulty,
use a new Windows 7 CD, and it should work.

You can also try to format your Hard Disk during the installation process to remove the old damaged Operating system files, if you are not performing a disk format, please make sure you back up all your data to a separate partition or an external drive before formatting as all your data will be deleted.

Thank you for using Fixya,

How can i install vista in my lenovo g550.i have installed xp priviously, but,now want to install vista in it.i have the copy of vista home premium os cd. please help me.

1. Backup all your files. Windows XP has a "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" under System Tools under Accessories under All Program. Use it to create one (large) file -- copy that file to a DVD-recordable disk or to a USB memory-stick or to an external disk-drive.
2. Verify that you can read that file -- writing a "bad" copy would be horrific.
3. Access the LENOVO web-site -- looking for device-drivers for your model of Lenovo,
that will not be contained on the Vista CD. Download them, and save them to a CD-recordable disk (not a USB disk -- you may need these device-drivers, in order to enable the USB ports after installing Vista).
4. Insert the Vista CD. It should "autorun" something, asking your permission to start the installation of Vista.
5. Follow the on-screen prompts.
6. After the install completes, use "Windows Update" several times, to get all the security-fixes that have been issued since the release of your Vista CD.

How can i create a partition in my hard disk without deleting my files

Creating a new partition in your hard drive may be achieve in three ways. If you're installing a fresh Operating System into your PC, you can setup extra drives such as drive D: or drive E: for backup purposes. But if there's already a ready OS, you can right click the My Computer icon in your Desktop and select Manage then hit Disk Management. If you have seen Unallocated Space, you can right click it then hit Create New Partition, and if none it means that your hard drive has no more space to create another extra drive. If you find the two preceding ways quite complicated, you can also use software such as Partition Magic.
