successfull migration of ideapad y710 from vista to windows 8

2013-02-03, 20:51 PM

Hello everybody,


I have achieved migration of my y710 to windows8 Pro (buyed from promotional period)

steps where the following

1) Install from downloaded DVD with format of C partition

2) from intel site download of an installer which detect chipset and install drivers accordingly

3) from amd site install mobility radeon hd2600 drivers

4) from realtek site install audio driver

5) from synaptic install synaptic touch pad driver

6) from vista driver disc install energy cut (it is compatible with windows 8)

7) the more difficult to found, from HP site download SP37614 Bundle which install all ricoh drivers

all other devices are automaticaly detected and their pilots installed from microsoft driver store (wifi, bluetooth,lan...)


the only remaining problem is for halo light , icolor driver is not compatibleand halo light application claims "please install icolor driver" but don't worry this problem was endemic on vista also , if you want define another user you have the same message, this bundle is bugged from origin. halo lights remain always blue that's all
