I am trying to set up the bluetooth to work on Windows 8.
Funnily enough everything went smooth with Ubuntu 14.04.
So I am 100% sure this laptop has bluetooth hardware.
Still, on the support website there is driver for bluetooth.
It says it should be included in Windows 8 but I can't find it.
Nor I can find the proper device in my control panel.
Thank you all.

Are you sure Windows 8 didn't install its native Bluetooth drivers? I've never had any problems with Bluetooth
installation on any ThinkPads when either clean installing or upgrading to Windows 8.
If you have the Thinkpad Hotkey Features Integration package installed, you can press FN+F5 to open up
your WiFi-Bluetooth window and enable the Bluetooth there. If not, the package is here:
See if this doesn't resolve the issue.

Running into this also, and it's somewhat annoying as I'm having to use a Windows 8 VM or RDP to manage my Server 2012 boxes if I want working bluetooth. Any ideas? Everything works perfect in Windows 7, so its defineletly a driver issue.
