Lenovo IdeaPad IP5 15ARE05 and Windows 8.1?

2020-10-05, 19:45 PM


Recently I bought Lenovo IdeaPad IP5 15ARE05 and tryed to install Windows 8.1 (just don’t like 10th). The installation was successful, but I couldn’t find some working drivers. For example for net adapter. Is it possible to use 8.1 fully on this model? Does anyone find the drivers?

Thank you.

Hi Mushroooom,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


The support site only offers those for Windows 10 but perhaps you can try using them and run on compatibility mode for Windows 8.


Updates for Windows 8.1 drivers may also apply native inbox drivers with its Service pack that you can also try.


Another option is getting the hardware ID from properties under device manager and checking out available drivers from the specific parts manufacturer.


Update us back how things go for you.
