Re: Lenovo G500s Touch

Hi bkaye2,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

This model has not yet released for a Widnwos 10 Support

 

This is the current list of WIndows 10 supported models

 

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103535

 

And the Lenovo Download page for G500s does not include WIndows 10 drivers yet.

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/lenovo-g500s-t...

 

Hope this helps

Cheers!

Re: Lenovo G500s Touch

AFAIK Yes.

 

If that will happen this would be in a form of a bios update.

So make sure to watch out for it in support.lenovo download page for your model

Re: Lenovo G500s Touch

Hi!

 

Thanks for posting in the Community,

 

Here are the official Windows 10 supported list,

 

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht103535

 

The G500 / G500s is not listed, therefore it means that it's not compatible with Windows 10. No available Windows 10 Drivers as well for the said models in our support website.
