its weird that all the drivers are not working except the WLAN and nVidia.

There are some problems with some lenovo drivers for windows 8
we had a problem with the lenovo energy management for windows 8 http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-8/Z570-Lenovo-Energy-Management-for-Windows-8/td-p/856023 since its release and no fix till now

try to look for the drivers from the manufacturer site like if you have intel HD display adapter try to download the driver from intel website till lenovo release a working drivers

when i start the setup the lenovo setup extracts the files to c:\drivers\
while extracting it asks to replace existing files but there was nothin to begin with
i manually installed win7 x64 drivers for audio and touchpad but after system boot all sorts of wierd error mgsgs started popping up, i reinstalled win 8, now there is nothing but a black screen after login
guess i'll revert back to win7, everything was perfect there
