Are you looking to reformat your Lenovo laptop, but aren’t sure how to go about it? Never fear! This step-by-step guide will have you reformatting like a pro in no time.
First, you’ll need to back up all of your important data. This is important because reformatting will erase everything on your hard drive. So make sure you have backups of your photos, documents, and anything else you don’t want to lose.
Once you’ve backed up your data, you’ll need to create a bootable USB drive or CD. This will be used to boot up your computer and start the reformatting process. You can create a bootable drive using a program like Rufus, or you can use a blank CD or USB drive and burn the appropriate bootable image to it.
Next, you’ll need to restart your computer and boot from the USB drive or CD. Once your computer has booted up, you’ll be presented with a menu of options. Use your arrow keys to select the “Boot from CD/USB” option and hit Enter.
Your computer will now boot into a special version of Windows called the Windows Recovery Environment. From here, you’ll be able to reformat your hard drive and reinstall Windows.
To reformat your hard drive, select the “Format” option and hit Enter. You’ll be asked to confirm that you want to format the drive. Once you’ve confirmed, the reformatting process will begin. This step may take bit time, be patient.
Once the reformatting process is complete, you’ll be asked if you want to “Repair your computer” or “Install Windows.” If you just want to reformat your hard drive and start from scratch, select the “Install Windows” option. Otherwise, select “Repair your computer” to try and repair any issues that may have caused your computer to need reformatting in the first place.
If you chose to repair your computer, you’ll be presented with a menu of options for repairing your system. If you’re not sure what to do, just select the “Startup Repair” option. This will scan your computer for any problems and attempt to fix them.
Once the repair process is complete, you should be able to boot up your computer normally. If not, you may need to reformat your hard drive and start from scratch.
