Hi, I have a friend's Lenovo B50-30 laptop.

The problem is that the disk is formatted and i cannot find a way to install any OS
In windows 7 it goes to loading files and then freezes in the windows logo.
In windows 8 it stays in the blue logo for a while and then restart over and over.

I've tried with legacy first, legacy boot, and all the BIOS stuff and it won't work.
I've tried running Mini Windows xp from HCBD and it goes blue screen.
I've tested for bad sectors and it says it's ok.
What can I do?
Thanks, I'll appreciate your help a lot.

Hello feanor21 :welcome: ,

 

In Bios did you select CD-ROM in first booting device and hard disk in second booting device?

If yes then you said you check for bad sectors of hard disk, did you try it on another pc? did your hard disk is good/working there?

Yes, the problem was one of the memory slots. 
Now I've installed windows 7 64 bits and it's working fine.
