    Hello I thought id try my luck on here. I was given an Lenovo Ideapad 110S with an EMMC drive with the partitions deleted. Ive been trying to install Windows 7 and or 10 with no luck. I'm constantly getting hit with a "windows cannot be installed on this disk" error when I delete or create a new partition. the "next" button is highlighted but whenever I try to click it I get hit with the following message:

    "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. this computers hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disks controller is enabled in the computers BIOS menu"

    The BIOS that I have does not give me the option to change the disks controllers settings. the best I can do is change my UEFI/Legacy support settings and that doesnt seem to help with the situation. I tried looking for a recovery disk/files on the website but its still under maintainces and doesnt look like it'll be finished anytime soon since it was supposed to be live and ready from Noon today EST. Is there a fix for this? A way to updated my BIOS to get these features I need to change it? HELP> ME> PLZ>

    We need to know more information about your computer, Make, model, age, hardware etc. Your computer may not meet requirements or we may have to format the drive. No way to know with the info provided this far.

    Thats the thing. It CAME preloaded with Windows 10 home..... so Windows 10 should be able to work on it. It didnt say anything about GPT or MBR disk, Only the following error I had in my initial post.

    OK, I misunderstood your original post. You had Windows 10 and your reformatted? I would still try the steps in the link I shared to convert it to an MBR disk and see if you can install it then. I am guessing you have an install disk.

    The hard drive you want to install Windows on. If you're trying to install from a USB disk or flash drive you need to go into the bios and change the boot order to USB first.
