I recently purchased a Z510 and replaced the hard drive with an SSD drive (Kingston HyperX). I then installed Windows 7 x64 which did not have any of the important drivers i.e. wireless network driver. There are no drivers for Windows 7 x64 for this laptop as far as I can tell and I'm unable to get the Win8 or Win8.1 drivers to work.
As the laptop does not come with any OS re-install media I attempted to use my own Windows 8 DVD to install the OS from scratch on the new har drive but am having trouble booting off of the dvd trying both EFI and legacy modes in BIOS.
I would appreciate any advice in getting ideally Windows 7, worse case Windows 8 installed on this laptop before November 22nd when I will be travelling out of the country along with the laptop.
