Hi Guys,recently given a Lenovo ideapad 110S, previous owner didn't do a systems back up??? . I have downloaded windows10 onto a flash drive, but when i plug it in and restart i get this errorOxc00000225 message i have tried trouble shooting/restore etc! and some info on the net, but to no avail.

I am unable to connect to the net as the key board  i think is looked, funny when no flash drive in laptop it boots ok, can enter password fine but cannot use the keyboard for ant other use.

Hi twobob, and welcome to our forums

:welcome:

It's an interesting question you raise and here are some thoughts that may help.

 

1 If you have not already run the Windows 10 compatibility ( to check that your machine can run Win 10 Ok) then this would a wise first step

 

2 Before making fundamental changes to your computer it would be wise to make some disc images Plus a repair disc using an application like Macrium Reflect free or other software so that in the event of serious trouble you could put the computer back to how it was before you started, so to speak. 3 copies of the images, on different media are often felt to be sufficient as long as they have been verified as accurate and reproducible and at least one verified copy is kept safely offsite on removable media.

 

3 If the original OS is Win 7 for example then it would be wise to use the native Windows tools to make a repair disc and some system images (in addition to those at step 2 above)

 

4 To boot from a flash drive, it will probably be necessary to enter the BIOS and set the boot priority to

1 USB flash drive

2 Hard drive 0

(the rest don't really matter as long as the first two are correct)

Save the changes, close down your computer, insert your Flash drive (that is hopefully bootable) and restart your computer.

 

5 It should now boot to the flash drive and start loading Windows files

 

6 Before you start I would check that you have a correctly licenced Win 10 operating system.... post back if you need extra information on that

Regards

Hi Thanks for the info, i have tried all that you have said, even tried different bios setting, to no avail currently running windows10, unable to do a windows restore or back up systems disc.

would it be worth while doing a backup disc, when the fault is already there?

Could i do a windows 7 disc to flash drive (legitimate copy with key) and reinstall windows 7, i have windows7 & 10 discs with keys ( genuine copies).

I think a lot of files are missing as the camera & key board will not work.

When i restart laptop it boots strait to flash drive and that is where i get this error message.

Cheers Twobob

How did you create your win 10 flash drive. It may be worth creating new or use another drive using Windows media tool. Then I would start fresh with a clean install. See the following links for a couple of good guides. Let us know if additional questions.
