Y400 - Windows 7 64 Bit - Not Supported?

All,

 

Just picked up a Y400.  Nice machine BUT one issue, no Win 7 support...is that right?  I see some people stating that they were able to get Win 7 to work, but where did you guys get the drivers?  Lenovo cust/tech services are not helpful, stating that I should contact Microsoft. 

 

In any case, any advice is appreciated.  I rather not return this machine but will do so if I'm stuck with 8 and only 8.

 

Thanks!

hi 2ndname,

at this moment, download page doesn't contain windows 7 drivers but there may be an update for the future.

for windows 7, you can download the drivers from support page by selecting different model. as long as the manufacturers are the same, drivers should work. also, you can download the drivers from its manufacturers website eg intel, realtek...

hope this helps.

Will you see any Chinese after the drivers are installed?

Thanks for the replies. I was actually able to find each drivers piece by piece. No bangs/ticks within Device Manager and everything seems to be fully operational.

Have you guys tried classicshell.net? Google it. Gives windows 8.1 the look and feel of windows 7. I no longer hate 8.
