I recently bought a Lenovo IdeaPad Z570:
I delete all partitions and installed Windows 7 Professional (I need it for domains), but I have problems with my WIFI. I already do the nexts steps:
But anything works, I see this posts: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-and-Z-series/many-Z570-problems/m-p/481043
The conclusion is: If I press F12 in the boot process and select DVD boot, the WIFI works.
Could anybody help ? I see a lot of problems with WIFI in the forums in Z570, but this is very rare.

Same result, if I press only F8 and select "safe mode with networking" the WIFI doesn't work, but if I press F12 and then F8 and select again "safe mode with networking" the WIFI works perfect.
Thank you for your interest.

Thanks a lot, yigit
Don't worry, I went to GBM (There is no Lenovo here in Panama, so Lenovo has an alliance with IBM for support), and leave my laptop last monday.
They request to Lenovo a new Wireless card, in fifteen days I leave my laptop again for tests.
I think it's a very weird problem too, they also think that maybe it's a software problem, but I don't think so because the wireless works fine (only if a press the F12 key and select DVD).
Thanks again, when I have an "official answer" I'll post here.
