Cannot properly install any Intel drivers on lenovo thinkpad yoga

2015-04-17, 7:39 AM

Hi!

I did a clean install of windows 8.1 after installing a new SSD to a lenovo thinkpad yoga, and I cannot seem to install any intel drivers. This is a serious problem, because I can't use connect to the internet, and if I cannot do so, then I can't use the auto-update functionality. Additionally, I cannot even install the auto-update driver. I tried installing the SCCM .INF files as well, that didn't change anything. I'm at my wit's end here. Anybody got any ideas?

If you can borrow a USB to ethernet adapter, you could try updating over LAN. As for the driver, i have mine working on a TPY12 with a fresh Windows Install. Before doing the install I added the driver to the Win8 install USB, and during the Win8 install there is a point where you can load a driver. This worked fine, but after installing and doing a million Windows and SysUpdate updates the Wifi driver update keeps showing. I've tried installing it a few times, to no avail. Wifi still works, so for now I'll just have to ignore that update.
