To confirm, did your Lenovo G510 computer come with Linux or Windows pre-installed? Also, do you have a Windows installation disk?

Thanks,

It did come w/Windows. Has been happily running Linux Mint since I got it. I want to give it to my niece and convert it back to Windows. I have a factory MS Windows 7 disk, not installed in anything. Installation fails when it asks for missing drivers. Which is what this series of calls is about. Where/How do I find them?
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 month ago.

If there are some drivers missing, you can download them from the official Lenovo web page, but you can install the drivers only if you can access the Windows 7 desktop.

At which point the installation fails exactly?

Just cancel me and billing. I've just. Totally wasted way too much time getting nowhere.

Cancelling now.
