Support for Windows 10 on T410?

I have a T410,   ID  2522-22U. I upgraded to windows 10 with seeming success. My display adapter is Intel HD Graphics and works well. My question is: the Windows 10 that installed is 32-bit but I have an x64 based processor. The 32-bit OS will not utilize 8GB RAM but the T410 will take it. I am wondering what drivers might be affected by upgrading to 64-bit.  

Reading this article, "How to upgrade from a 32-bit to 64-bit version of Windows 10" (https://www.windowscentral.com/how-upgrade-32-bit-64-bit-version-windows-10), I downloaded Sysinternals' program CoreInfo to check the four values this article says must be in place. All are good.

I haven't found on the Lenovo site yet information about T410 driver options. It seems almost that the T410 is all but erased. There should at least be historical information and links. 

My printer driver can update.

I will be looking into specific compents like the Intel HD Graphics.

What Lenovo-specific drivers might there be to upgrade and where are they? I would expect this would not be a problem as this T410 was built with an x64 processor.

All knowledge and experience welcome!

Thanks

Good day.

 

The T410 is considered to be End-of-Life, therefore drivers and documentation available from Lenovo has moved to the EoL support site at: https://download.lenovo.com/eol/

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

T410 is not really a supported system, but people run win 10 on hardware of that generation.  I would expect that the 64-bit version will run as well as the 32-bit version.

Re: Support for Windows 10 on T410?

I am Replying to my own post. Looking for direction to be sure I can upgrade to Windows 10 64-bit, I found there are a couple of ways to check the processor. There is the usual Control Panel > System which gives the information:  

32-bit Operating System, X64-based processor.

 

Another way I found out about is using System Information (\System32\msinfo32.exe) which gives the information: System Type    X86-based PC

 

This is contradictory and as far as I can tell, should not happen.

 

Any experience with this?

As I said, If you can run 32-bit win10, you can run 64-bit.  You have an x64-based CPU.  System Type x86-based PC refers to the installed OS

Re: Support for Windows 10 on T410?

Thanks ... this is one mountain out of the way. Now to understand how to determine what special drivers I may have to update to 64-bit. I think you are saying that Windows 10 will take care of most basic drivers when it is installed.

Re: Support for Windows 10 on T410?

I installed win 10 64bit Pro with the same Intel HD graphics card setup you have. I have a camera and finger print reader. 8 GB of ram and SSD.. After installation (which took awhile) device manger shows no problems with any device. I suppose Lenovo discouraged win 10 as success probably depends on exacty what t410 version you have and what components are installed in it. I suspect It's not 100% possible with every model. I think Lenovo knew not all t410's would work with win 10 and designated it end of life when support for win 7 ends.. Otherwise they would have endless support issues. My T410 has a M520 2.4ghz processor.

 

Your milage may vary. Good Luck!

Re: Support for Windows 10 on T410? - SOLVED

For the past year I've had problems with Windows 10 on my T-410. It's been a horrible experience. I happened to find a solution by luck, because only once did I see this situation come up where it caused me to check out a single process that seemed to do the trick.

 

In addition to running poorly, my disk drive was running at 100% and my CPU Fan was constantly on, blowing hard all the time. Like most of the groups suggested, I disabled superfetch, search index, and each click on anything still took 30+ seconds to respond.

 

While watching the list of programs driving the disk usage, I saw the MS Antimalware Scan and terminated it without any change in performance. I also saw a bunch of System processes showing disk usage but even with that, it sitll didn't seem like enough to cause the drive to be 100% utilized. One program surfaced to the top for a couple seconds then dropped back down, one I hadn't seen before. It only did it once, so I searched my list to find it.

 

It was the Lenovo PM Service. This is Lenovo's Power Management Service. I went into the Services window and scrolled down to Lenovo PM Service and saw that it was running, so I disabled it. It took a long time to stop and in the process of stoppiing that task it also timed out, it was hung on something.  I went into the properties and disabled Lenovo PM Service, to make sure that it wouldn't start up again.

 

Things were starting to work a little  better so I rebooted my system. I logged in and instead of it taking 3+ minutes to log in, it took about 15 seconds. The system was a whole lot faster and after about 15 minutes of using the system, things started working much faster, as the same speed as Win7... a speed that I expected for the power and performance of my system.

 

This was an answered prayer. I bought this T410 with the i7 Core processor and maxed out the system with as much power and speed as I could, so I did not want to lose the money I spent on this system because Win10 wouldn't work. I was about to move off all my stuff and return to Win7 when this momentary process called Lenovo PM Service popped into view.

 

I recommend stopping and disabling it. The MS Power Management tools are fine without having to use Lenovo's. It's clear that it doesn't play well with Win10. I've also left off the superfetch and search indexing for now. I might try turning them back on at a later date to see if they will play nice now.

 

I hope that this helps someone with the same poor performance and high disk usage that I experienced. It took me a year, then only by chance did I see this process for a moment and thought that I should try terminating this process. The T-410 is a good machine, and it's good to know that it will work just fine with Win10... as long as the Lenovo PM Services is permanently disabled.

 

Cheers!
