With LSI there is one set of rules for covers and another for
interiors. Please don't confuse the two.For covers I suggest you work
in 1.4.0 and just use 1.5.0 for conversion to pdf X/1-a:2001. That is
what I do.

Another solution is to save the cover file in tiff format (CMYK of
course) and send that to LSI. That printer will accept tiff. 

With LSI black and white interior can be in any pdf format. A black and
white cover will  probably be treated as a color cover with
nothing but "K" used on the cover. 

IME the less you do in Windows the more success you will have. It
is time to cut the cord.
