Will Yoga 710-14 7200U run windows 8?

2017-01-02, 21:59 PM

I currently own yoga 710-14 with i5-6200U cpu. I managed to install windows 8 on this device despite few problems. I had troubles installing wi-fi card driver - no internet at all, and windows 10 driver refused to be installed or work. Driver booster solved my problem and downloaded proper driver through 3G modem put into usb port.


However I am now aware of newer version of yoga with kaby lake i5-7200u processor. I just bought my device and I think I can go return it and buy better version. Do you think it will work without any more problems than this version? I guess wirelles card and ssd drive should be the same, right? Will I need additional RAID drivers like in lenovo Ideapad 710S-13 ultrabook?I had some difficulties installing OS on that one...

Hi Piterr and welcome to the community,

 

These units are not tested with windows 8 so lenovo are unsure of what issues you may have with the unit running that OS.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
