Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

I think you should revert back to Win 8 and then try win 10 install again (if you want).

 

Y510P is NOT officially in the list of upgrades - https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103535

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

I wonder if it's just the Wireless-N 7260 affected? I have the AC 7260, perhaps that accounts for the difference.

Regardless, I added a note concerning the wireless issues to the first post. Hopefully someone can try the drivers from Intel and see if it fixes the issue Smiley Happy. EDIT: Drivers did not resolve issue, just saw post.

Re: Windows 10 Upgrade (Y510p)

The thing that confuses me about the upgrade list is that every laptop before and after it (corresponding older models, i.e. Y500) is there, including the Y410p. Not sure what's going on there.

Link to my speedtest on Y510p. Speeds are now abour 30mbps higher than they were before (around 45). I have no idea why the N cards aren't working but AC is.

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

Thinking about updating my y510p. Is there any way to backup windows without saving all the hard drive? i have around 600gb in the disk so there's no space to back it up. Or the windows 10 installer does it for me? Any luck with the wifi drivers?

Are you able to get the windows 10 gestures to work on the y510p?

I dont think gestures will work. That app is in incompatible list for win 10 for now.

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

You can make a backup image which will save your personal files; it'll be much smaller than the 600GB but still pretty large (as in a few GB). You can save the image to a USB drive or external hard drive. Also, Windows 10 has a feature that lets you downgrade back to your previous OS so you won't need installation media for it. I haven't tried that though so you should probably do some research on it Smiley Happy.

So far, nobody has posted success with WiFi drivers, but mine has been working fine since the beginning, although I have the modded BIOS and AC 7260.

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

I'm not as tech lingo savvy as I'd like, so please forgive me. 

The problem I'm having is that my Y510P has the small SSD. I'm assuming because of the small size windows 10 installed itself onto the HDD instead. Now my computer starts much slower. Is it possible to move the install without causing major problems? Is there a right way to do this?
