Hi I installed Windows 7 x64 Pro on my Lenovo y510p tonight, and I have had trouble identifying the right order to install the drivers.
On trying to install the drivers I noticed that some of them are numbered when the files are extracted to "C:\drivers\" others are not:
1. Intel Chipset Driver,
2. Intel Rapid Storage Technology,
3. USB 3.0 Driver,
4. Intel Management Engine Interface,
5. Intel Video Driver (64-bit),
6. Realtek Audio Driver,
7. Atheros Lan Driver,
9. Genesys USB Mass Storage Device,
12. Touchpad Driver (Synaptics, Elan),
15. Camera Driver,
17. Intel Wireless Display Driver.
Drivers / Software with no order listed:
Intel WLAN Driver (Installed in position 8)
Nvidia VGA Driver (Installed in position 10/11)
Intel Bluetooth Driver (Installed in position 13/14)
Lenovo Energy Management Software 7.0
These are all the files I could find under downloads for Windows 7 x64 for the Y510p.
Can anyone please help me with the correct order and to identify the missing ones if possible.
Many thanks, Gary.
Windows 7 (installed in Legacy Boot) VS Windows 8 / 8.1.
Windows 7 Pros: My Wireless stopped dropping out at all, it's finally stable and is faster.
Windows 7 Cons: The USB Ports do not work properly since installing Windows 7 x64!
"USB Device Tree Viewer" shows clearly 3 distinct hubs, 2 Generic USB Hubs, then 1 USB 3.0 Root Hub.
The problem is the USB 3 Hub actually does nothing under Windows 7!
All the devices you connect no matter what they are, always connect to the 1st Generic USB Hub in the list and so do not operate at USB 3 Super Speed.
I tried un-installing and reinstalling the USB drivers supplied by Lenovo and it makes no difference.
