Do you expect other versions of the drivers to be created soon? I cannot install any of the drivers on my windows 7 x64 professional install. I have become very frustrated and I need help!

I am having the same problems, purchased a Z500 for a customer, downgraded to Windows 7, but the drivers won't work. Errors are produced during unpacking, file overwrite errors, but the brand new installation doesn't have any of the driver directories yet so this seems to be related to the disk write process.
Did any of you find a solution to get this working?
Lenovo, what is the solution?

OK I found out what the problem was. The wrapper that is extracting the drivers into their respective directories is corrupting the installation. You have to unpack the drivers using a proper unzipper. I used 7zip, and that works fine.
