Thinkpad E520 upgrade to Windows 10. Are there drivers for the Lenovo hardware?

Lenovo Thinkpad E520 serial number <redacted>.  Originally supplied 10/05/2012 with Windows 7 Pro.  User accepted the Microsoft update to Windows 10, since when it has been very slow, and applications like Lenovo Power Management crash. 


So I want to replace the HDD with an SSD and re-install the OS from scratch.  Ideally I want to install Windows 10, but I can't find any drivers on the Lenovo support site for this machine for Windows 10.  Do they exist?  Where?

Hi @Graham56!


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.


Please edit your post and remove the serial number for security purposes. According to the support website your Edge E520 (ThinkPad) preloaded operating system is up to Windows 8.1 only. Should you want to upgrade it to Windows 10 you may use  third party softwares but i don't guarantee that you'll get the exact drivers. Hence, Driver Pack Solution may help you downloading the driver online.
