Y730 Vista -> Win7

2009-12-05, 3:00 AM

Hi guys,


I have a few inquiry here regarding of porting my Vista Home to Win7 32/64bits OS,


1. I have almost gather all the driver that is needed to install Windows 7 from Here ,

    But of course that is not covered all, such as BiosUpdate, IntelChipsetDriver etc.

    Is it neccessary for me to have these driver installed?


2. Would it be able still for me to use the LenovoOneTouch Repair feature after the

    upgrade to win 7 32/64bits OS?


3. I have just brought the win7 ultimate cd, and plan to do a clean install to the current

    OS, I'll go for 64bits first, since the Y730 comes with 4GB ram.

    - Have anyone experience it yet ? not sure if lenovo provided sufficient drvier for

       the installation.



Sorry for my bad english..


Thank you,

1. I haven't had a problem with the driver set they have posted except for the cardreader; it won't read the high capacity SD cards.  It's a driver flaw because it works in Ubuntu and the default installation of Vista.


2. I believe as long as the factory partitions are left intact, ie: "as shipped", then the one touch repair or whatever it's called should function properly.


3. My experience is with Win7 Professional x64, your results may vary.


Good luck
