Can I upgrade my Ideapad y580 type 2099 to windows 10? Are there drivers available?

I need to update my Ideapad y580 type 2099 to windows 10, but Microsoft told me it is not compatible.  Microsoft told me that I could probably upgrade it to windows 10 but I need to contact Lenovo to make sure there are available drivers...

Hi GrinningStudios,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Y580 is not supported for Windows 10 as per Lenovo upgrade guide here.

There are no Windows 10 drivers available on the support site too.

 

Reading through the guide, "After upgrading to Windows 10, you may find some features of the previous version of Windows are unavailable on Windows; or some functions do not behave as it did on the previous version of Windows. THESE DIFFERENCES MAY NOT BE ISSUES." . Check on the applications that may also be limited.

 

This, do not limit users on their decision how to use their machine as others manage to install it using the Windows 10 native and manufacturer drivers.

 

Before deciding to upgrade, make sure you have a way to get back to the original image just in case you are not satisfied with it. Review this discussion here how others manage to upgrade and likewise the challenges others encounter and how they manage a work around. It is a long discussion but is worthwhile to know how each members share their experiences.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi, drivers are possible to install from lenovo site normally. Problem is, that there are no official Lenovo Windows 10 drivers. For this purpose i created complete tutorial, how to install all usefull drivers for Windows 10 with all good features needed.

All drivers and files are included in link in my profile description.

 

Files also includes solving problems with not detecting Bluetooth and problems with usb 3.0 ports slow speed (fixing speed from usb 2.0 speed to usb 3.0 speed).

In each section you can find instalation guide, so it will help you a lot.

 

DISCLAIMER: INSTALLING AND USING THESE DRIVERS ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE USING THESE DRIVERS.
