Hello,

I have a Lenovo G50-45 and I recently did a clean install of Windows 8.1 (32-bit). Had a lot of trouble tracking down all the drivers, since I discovered most driver compatibility was for the 64-bit of Windows 8.1. Now I am trying to do a new clean install of Windows 8.1 64-bit.

My steps: Under the Update and Recovery section in Settings, I am selecting the "Remove everything and reinstall Windows" option to do a clean install using a DVD Windows 8.1 64-bit ISO. When I try to put the DVD in, I receive an error message saying that the media is not valid. I have tried with two other Windows ISO DVD's (which were Windows 7 32 and 64 bit DVD's). I am sure that all these media cds work, because they have been used in the recent past to do clean installs on other laptops. Don't feel like burning another ISO file and wasting another DVD.

HOWEVER, there is a fourth Windows ISO DVD that DOES work. It is the Windows 8.1 32-bit ISO that I originally did a clean install with for this laptop. Is there a reason why Windows will only accept this CD as Valid Media, and not the other ones? Again, I am trying to do a reinstall to change the version of Windows, it won't read the CD's. Any idea why this happens?


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
