Yoga 11S on Windows 7

2014-05-08, 13:52 PM

Hello,

 

i tried to install Windows 7 64bit Enterprise on a Yoga IdeaPad 11S and downloaded all available driver setups for Windows 7 64bit from the lenovo website. I was unable to install the following driver packages:

 

- Conexant Audio Driver

- Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony)

- Intel Chipset Driver

- Intel USB 3.0 Driver

- Intel Video Driver

- Touchpad Driver (Elan, Synaptics)

 

At the moment we need to use Windows 7 because an important software isn't compatible to Windows 8. Is there anyway to get the Touchdisplay working?

 

Kind regards,

Michael

The hardware was not made for Windows 7.

What software do you need to get to work? Perhaps I can take a look for you with a virtual machine running Windows 8.

Hi Jonas,

 

i need to use High Speed Data Converter Pro from Texas Instruments. It is a tool for evaluation boards from TI and the problem is the usb connection on Windows 8. You can install the software on Windows 8 but you can not connect to the evaluation boards via USB. I asked for this problem in a TI forum as well, but the developers have no idea why the software isn't working on WIndows 8.

 

I got that idea with a virtual machine too, so i installed Windows 8 again on the Yoga 11S and tried to run Virtual Box, but now i have the problem to install a Windows 7 64bit version on the virtual machine. Up to now i'm only allowed to install 32bit OS although i enabled the hardware virtualization in the BIOS.

 

With Hyper-V i made it to install Windows 7 64bit on Windows 8 but wasn't able to run USB on that Hyper-V. First attempts were via remote desktop connection but didn't work so far.

 

Michael

Similar to your problem, my Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro 750GB USB 3.0 does not work on Y2P with Windows 8.1.  I have made it working by installing Intel series 8 chipset USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller driver for Windows 7 as suggested in this link,

My external disk is now working without any problem.
