Guide(ish): Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Hopefully this'll help some people thinking of upgrading Smiley Happy.

 

NOTE: Some people are having issues with wireless cards after upgrading. I'm not sure of solution yet, but I would recommend predownloading the Windows 10 drivers from Intel's website before the upgrade. - So far drivers have not solved issue. Not sure of solution yet.

 

Everything went smoothly for me. All fiels, programs, drivers, and settings transferred from my Windows 7 install to Windows 10 (and also from 8.1 to 10 on my Dell, so I assum it'll work on a Lenovo too). Upgrade process was painless and took about 20 minutes. Only temporary issue was video drivers, but that got solved later.

 

Make sure you check for updates in Windows Update right after you upgrade; there's a day one patch they put out and it fixes quite alot of bugs (1GB of them actually). This fixed any driver issues I had and made my screen resolution normal, as it was previously running 800x600 or something, so don't freak out if your screen look weird at first.

 

It automatically changes your default programs though, so if you use Chrome or Firefox you'll need to change it back to that from the new Edge browser. Otherwise, most settings were imported.

 

So far I have found nothing that is incompatible with Windows 10 on my computer; however, beware that you will need to reinstall your anti-virus when Windows prompts you, as it is uninstalled prior to the upgrade. Doesn't cause any issues though and your computer is not at risk throughout the process.

 

However, I would still recommend that unless you're a developer or tech-savvy person you wait for a few weeks to upgrade, as Microsoft will constantly be fixing bugs over the rollout period. Windows 10 is free for a year and your reservation does not expire, so there's no rush.

 

Edit: Corrected resolution. Added note.

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Good post and please keep it updated if you find something more.

Which antivirus did you have?

Is your Wireless working fine? Has it improved?

Are the lenovo apps working fine? (Energy manager, Dust cleaning)

 

As of now, I will prefer to stay with Win 8.1 due to several mods ( i have applied) and the stability that it has for playing games.

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

I have Kaspersky Total on the Y510p and Avast Free on the Dell. Both work fine after the upgrade.

 

The wireless seems to work so far, although I still need to do some tests. I'll update this later once I know more, but so far all seems fine, although no apparent improvement (that could just be my network's fault though Smiley Tongue).

 

I use a custom energy plan, although I'll check the Lenovo stuff later and update this post along with the wireless information from above. I do know that things from Lenovo such as VeriFace no longer work though, see this thread. It could be a few months before Lenovo has all of their apps updated for Windows 10.

 

Also, I use the Y510p modded BIOS, and no issues have arisen.

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Hi,

 

I also have a Y510p but my upgrade took about 2h despite having a remarkable connection (400 Mbps). Also, once the laptop rebooted I realized that no connections were available. I read in a blog that antivirus might cause issues so I uninstalled my ESET NOD32, I disabled my LAN and WAN drivers, reinstalled my original Win 8.1 drivers and rebooted a thousand times but nothing works...

 

Can you please help me I have entirely wasted my day with this update!

Y

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Your internet connection shouldn't matter when upgrading as the files were all predownloaded in the background throughout the days preceding release. The installation would be up to your computer's hardware.

 

Did you perform Windows Update operations after the upgrade?

 

 

When checking the compatible programs and such before the upgrade, did everything show up as compatible or were there things that wouldn't work?

 

Did the ethernet work or was it only the wireless? Also, did you uninstall antivirus, then restart, then check?

 

Do your ethernet and wireless devices show as working properly or is there an error?

 

If you can use ethernet to connect, I would recommend downloading these drivers from Intel for Dual Band Wireless-N 7260 on Windows 10 64bit.

Re: Guide(ish): Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

So is the windows 10 update compatible with the lenovo y510p? Cause i just got off chat saying that it is not compatible but yet every model before and after the y510p is compatible and so is the little brother of the y510p, the y410p.

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

Thanks for your help,

 

1. No, I didn't made any update after the installation (no connection is actually available)

2. Indeed, I checked the compatibility and it was 100% compatible.

3. Nope, unfortunately the ethernet isn't working... I did uninstall it and restarted but it didn't worked out.

4. When I go to the Device Manager they appear as working well.

 

I will no download the drivers you're kindly pointing me to and will give a try. Hope it works!!

 

Thank you so much!!

Re: Guide(ish): Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

It worked perfectly fine for me, but Jaff4r is having issues with wireless drivers. It's not really a problem waiting though like I said in original post Smiley Tongue.

Re: Guide(ish): Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

I think Arch that was my concern as well, the wireless might stop working.

Before upgrading my system to Win 10, I will download all drivers, so a connection is not needed immediately.

 

Hopefully everything will go well. I have a Yoga 3 pro to test this update, not gonna touch my Y510p yet.

Keep posting guys and hopefully we can find resolutions soon.

 

NOTE - For anyone having issues, you can always revert back to factory settings and  try the update again. Most microsoft releases are like this, you may have to upgrade again until it works flawlessly.
