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

I just completed the customer survey. A link is available through this forum.  It gave me a chance to speak out at least to marketing staff.  I am also searching the web for contact info for Lenovo.  I haven't looked very far yet, but below is the US corprate address and an email option.

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

@Ofir

Ok, well I dont want to be THAT guy but let me explain why I am ok with this situation.

 

1) I want my games to run flawlessly.

2) I dont want to break my SLI configuration.

3) I dont want Microsoft to force updates down my thoat.

4) I want my unlocked BIOS to stay as it is. (not to brick the laptop while upgrading it or unlocking it again)

5) Laptop life is max 3-4 years, I wont gain anything significant from windows 10 as most driver/game creators wont be able to use its power for another 2 years.

 

Now, what are the features of windows 10 that you are sorely missing?

or Is this just about having to install Win 10 and experience it?

 

Thank you.

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

Guys, i installed yesterday W10 on my Y510p w/ the n-7260 and it's working perfectly. I had all kinds of drivers ready to install, but it connected just fine to the wifi as soon as it was installed.

 

I have the stock bios and only official drives. I'm open for questions about the pc or tests if i can help anyone out.

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

I don't think the SLI has ever worked properly on our machine. I finally went in and manually told it to use the GPU for specific applications.

I would have sworn that when we got the Y510p that the OS was installed on the SSD and there was minimal space available on the SSD.

Installing W10 seemed to work, but we wound up reformating (one key) to get it off. Now the SSD is not the C drive. I really thought it was. I'm not willing to pay Lenovo to trouble shoot this. We're now have a much slower computer and its really disappointing.

Did you install the firmware updated that was suppose to be applied after installing the update to win 8.1?

 

The SSD was not formatted, so you couldn't see how much space that was left on it. You are probalby thinking about the recovery partition on the main drive.

 

You need to update the SSD cache software (and preferably also the firmware) for the SSD to work for you.

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

I have instaled system after few months and only one thing what iv been supposed to do was uninstal few programs witch was uncompatibile and make my computer crash. Like antiviruses or firewalls witch are not compatible also there is phone support aviable after u return from failed instalation, also is good check for new upgrades for your old win 7 or 8 after each failed instalation. it means uncheck window 10 instalation and install all updates for old system if still not work just tell them number of mistakes, if your computer still working and draining Cpu there can be also malware witch need to be cutted off dont know what all can do etc. bitcoins harwers if u bought coumputer from second hand.. but phone support can solve this, like for me´..
