Some official Lenovo drivers cease to install on official Lenovo hardware (W520 / Win 7)
Intel Wireless LAN (11abgn, 11bgn, 11ac) for Windows 8.1 (64-bit), 8 (64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad ...
Missing device: Ultimate 6300 Wireless card
Ricoh Multi Card Reader Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - ThinkPad
Missing device: Ricoh card reader in W520
Please fix them, both are official drivers downloaded from Lenovo, and they are so broken that the devids are totally missing!
Solved! Go to Solution.

The card reader is broken because of a bug, which changes the device id from 823 to 822 when rebooting from linux. If you shut down and power up, the bug is not present.
Still, for reference here is the correct INF for the card reader, which supports both 823 and 822 ids:
[Ricoh] %R5U822Desc%=R5U822_Inst,PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_E822 %R5U822Desc%=R5U822_Inst,PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_E823 [Ricoh.ntamd64] %R5U822Desc%=R5U822_Inst.ntamd64,PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_E822 %R5U822Desc%=R5U822_Inst.ntamd64,PCI\VEN_1180&DEV_E823
For the wireless driver, I've opened a separate topic here:

well, I have a W520 and some time ago the Ricoh Card Reader was working, but now it doesn't. Windows device manager says it cannot install driver for Base System Device, Lenovo driver's page doesn't even provide an updated driver for my system and pc (Win 8.1 x64). Providing other drivers (the latest is 2.22.18.01 from 12 Oct 2012) doesn't work, editing risdxc.inf b yadding the info above doesn't work (error message: The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalogue file...)
I would realy appreaciate if the RICOH SDXC/MMC(Multi Media Card) driver was updated and made available for Win 8.1 x64 asap

Restarting doesn't help. I don't understand "Linux ID bug", but it's true, I have Linux installed on a separate partition as well besides Win
