Why are there only drivers for Windows 10 for ideapad 510-15IKB?
Why are not Windows 7 drivers for this laptop?
Windows 7 is much easier for users, and many use this Windows.
Please publish Windows 7 drivers for this 510 laptop model.

If your system has a 7th generation Intel Processor, which I believe it does, it is Microsoft that does not support anything but Windows 10 on those latest Intel processors, so that is why Lenovo's site can only provide drivers for Windows 10.
If you just like the look and feel of Windows 7, you might try running a free program (they do accept donations) called Classic Shell, which allows you to make Windows 10 Start Menu work like Windows 7, or XP if you prefer, yet still enjoy the speed and stability of Windows 10. I use it myself, and put it on my parents PC to simulate their old Windows XP look and feel for them, and it works great.
There is also another program called Start10 that is similar to Classic Shell, but it is not free, and I find that Classic shell has worked perfectly for me.

Windows 7 has an attractive graphical interface, and it's much more comfortable, but Windows 10 is a bit complicated and dumb.
Windows 10, in addition to its performance and speed, is very greedy and has a lot of volumes.
In general, Windows 7 itself is something else.
If Lenovo will offer Windows 7 drivers for the Lenovo Series 7 Series laptop, it will be great.
This is my laptop system information:
Graphics: 4GB GeForce 940MX
Memory: 8GB DDR4
Processor:7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7500U Processor
Storage :1TB 5400 RPM
But I do not know if this laptop system is 8 cores or not !!
Anyway, I liked the Windows 7 I use for my laptop.
I hope that its driver was released by Lenovo.
Thank you for your information and guidance.

As JDGillis posted, to my knowledge Microsoft does not support anything other than Windows 10 on Intel gen7 CPUs.
