Re: Windows 10 on W510: What works and what doesn't?

2018-04-26, 22:02 PM

Oof, wish I saw this a little earlier. I just installed Windows 10 on an old W510, but because it will almost always be in the docking station (the laptop monitor is pretty damaged), I didn't get a chance to test too much. It did install easily enough, and wifi works flawlessly, but I didn't get a chance to test bluetooth, or the function keys, etc. Also I don't have it accessible in the short term. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

Re: Windows 10 on W510: What works what doesn't? / Intel 82577LM Gigabit nic not working resolved

Thanks for the detailed info - I had a W510 working fine using another method - but now with the latest 1903 release the wired network Intel 82577LM Gigabit nic isn't working anymore. Tried installing the EOL nic driver for Windows 8, not helpful. Can you confirm the W510 Intel 82577LM Gigabit still works on your W510 with ver 1903 ?


EDIT: solved the issue - the EOL Lenovo drivers for Windows 8 do not work; BUT the Microsoft drivers from the Windows update site do work - you have to install them MANUALLY (update drivers, then point to specific folder, then reboot)
