Re: m91p: need 10 windows drivers

Microsoft and Intel do not support the Intel processor (Sandy Bridge) used in the M91p for Windows 10, and therefore Lenovo does not have Windows 10 drivers for this system. 

 

For the graphics driver, you can try the latest Windows 8 driver.  Edit:  or add a low-end inexpensive Nvidia graphics card that has Win 10 drivers. Something like a GT 630 or GT 730. 

 

For the Network driver, you may find a Win 10 driver on the Intel download site (you can find the network adapter model number using Device Manager.)  Or, other owners have found that adding a PCI Ethernet card makes the system more reliable.

Hi.

 

If the computer is not formally supported on Windows 10, and you want to try something under your own RISK, I may suggest you to take a looks at DriverEasy. This is not supported by Lenovo and it will be under your own risk, but I think it gives you some decent driver indentification against their database for free.


It may not work at all for you, but you may give it a try to see if it find any interesting driver for your. Please remember to backup, create a recovery point before checking it out.

That makes no sense.

 

And according to this link if the installer lets you, you are fine.

Seriously?!   Do you see Sandy Bridge in the list of supported processors here (list last updated April 2018):

 

Does My Intel® Processor Support Microsoft Windows® 10?

It uses a second-generation Sandy Bridge. And the only issue I have been able to find is that it does not support Microcast drivers. Hardly a big deal.

If it passes the install test it should be fine. The win 10 install test checks the processor to see whether it is suitable. I don't recall being given any kind of warning when installing windows 10 which was just a few days ago!  I remember it saying something about my PC being compatible.

I'm not saying you can't or shouldn't run Win 10 on your M91p.  Many people are successfully running Windows 10 on older systems than this (but, by the same token, others have tried and encountered unresolvable problems.) 

 

I'm explaining why there are no official Win 10 drivers from Lenovo (or from Intel or Microsoft) for the M91p.

BigAl is absolutely correct on the sandy bridge processors especially the 2400s or 2400 series i5 lga1155 socket processor:: my mp91p usff 0266 goes bezerk when I tried to install windows 10 pro x64 on it and graphics drivers are not compatable nor will not even show on the screen.

Re: m91p: need windows 10 drivers

Old post, but I figured I should post it somewhere:

 

We have some M90z in our fleet that we need to update to Windows 10. Only 2 so far have updated without reverting to the "Microsoft Basic Video Adapter" driver, and none of the drivers available on Lenovo's site will load. I Googled the driver number that worked, 8.15.10.2900, and actually landed on a MIcrosoft page that contained the exact drivers we needed. Tested and verified working. Thought anyone who found this thread might want the link!

I am running Sandy Bridge and have had absolutely no problem running Windows 10 for over a year now. Sleep did not work at first but it has fixed itself. All is fine. 

 

Running a Core i5 2400 at 3.1 GHz.
