Yoga 13 - No Official Windows 8.1 Support from Lenovo

2013-10-25, 12:30 PM

My Yoga 13 does not run very well on Win 8.1. The response time is laggy, I've had a few hard freezes, and it is overall not as fluid and nice as it was on Windows 8. Looking at the official product pages for the Yoga and the new Yoga 2 Pro, something very unsettling appeared: no Windows 8.1 support!

Is lenovo seriously not going to support the Yoga 11 and Yoga 13 with Windows 8.1?

I had the same experience after updating to 8.1. So I tried several different things including a clean install of 8.1 with the same experience. I restored back to 8.0 and won't even think of 8.1 until I see some sort of support from Lenovo.

I update my Yoga 13 and have no issues with performance. Have you ensured your BIOS is updated to the latest version 55? If you search the drivers for the Yoga 13 you will see many are now marked as suitable for Windows 8.1.

I was using version 51. I have already downgraded to Windows 8.0 and things are working smoothly again and I'm reluctant to upgrade back to 8.1.

 

Does anyone know why Lenovo is not officially supporting Windows 8.1 for the Yoga 13? The Yoga 2 Pro is officially supported.

Can someone please help me by providing instructions or link to instructions on how to downgrade back to windows 8? It's very painful with windows 8.1 despite driver updates...

 

Thanks

Back up your personal data and press the small button next to your power button when the computer is off. It will turn on and allow you to restore your machine to the original specs. It will do a complete wipe of everything including your apps and documents.
