Z580 - Windows 8 Upgrade

2012-11-04, 17:19 PM

I have a Z580 ideapad for which Lenovo recommends a clean install of Windows 8 from Windows 7 and to date all attempts to do otherwise ahve resulted in a corrupt installation. Where do I find the installation files for the bundled software that came with the machine? This is promised according to a paragraph at  the bottom of the webpage but does not include non Lenovo software like Disk burning suite (Power2Go etc).

On the Ideapad Yoga, all the included software/driver installers are placed on a seperate partition, in this case at D:\Lenovo

 

You might want to check there.

The link you offer is the one I used  - it stops short of actual installation files(except energy management) - all the bundled saoftware (like Power2go) need to be reinstalled. The D partition doesn't appear to have what is needed. The W8 successor Z580 has the same software as the W7 Z580 they ought to br made available to anyone choosing to go with W8.
