windows 8 on z580?

2013-01-04, 5:38 AM

Windows 8 has been out for quite a while now and i think there should have been enough time for lenovo to release fixed windows 8 drivers..I still have win 7 on my z580 but i want win 8 . so i want to know can i get everything working on win 8 like Dolby digital audio, onekey theater, one key recovery etc..??

Getting one key recovery to work on any modification of the system is a tall task. Don't be offended but I suggest not worrying about it. Besides, you should always have access to the refresh your system or reset your system command right? I've never installed windows 8 on an older pc though. Don't know for sure.

Hi itsvik
The link must be opened in google chrome only and not any other browser.
To install the downloaded drivers, you can use winrar. Just extract the setup file from the downloaded file as the same way you extract from a rar or zip file.
