I installed Windows 10 last year and had to uninstall it due to wi-fi connectivity dropping. Searching the internet, this seemed to be a frequent problem and Lenova did not support Windows 10 for the Y510P and did not provide drivers.
I really liked windows 10 and would love to go back to it. Is anyone running it, and how did you resolve the wi-fi connectivity issue?
I see on the Lenova Website they still don't list Windows 10 for this model. Too bad. Makes me really dislike Lenova products when they don't support OS upgrades.

Hi trailrunner925 and welcome to the community,
It's not Lenovo not supporting it, it is the manufacturer of the internal components not providing drivers for the hardware.
Lenovo doesn't make the drivers for the internal components and if the manufacturers don't update their drivers, then Windows has to use generic MS drivers for the components and then Lenovo can't support that particular machine.
You should probably upgrade to Windows 10 and let it activate and generate the license and then take it back to your old OS. Then down the road when issues are solved you can reinstall it.
