T440p hotkey integration driver fail - win7 x64

2014-09-09, 20:46 PM

Brand new T440p laptop out of the box.

 

Imaged with preconfigured company Windows 7 x64 image I have used hundreds of times before via MDT.

WDS packaged T440p drivers (downloaded from Lenovo website) are injected as part of the MDT installation process.

 

All windows updates applied (except for the Lenovo PM Device Driver otherwise the thing no longer reboots or shuts down properly anymore)

BIOS flashed to latest T440p revision.

 

Run Lenovo System Update to install hotkey drivers and receive the following:

As you can see Win7 x64... driver says no.


Restarted and tried again... error.

 

Tried downloading the driver manually from http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t440p/downloads/DS029026

Same error.

 

Searched for and downloaded version 5.40

Same error.

 

I ran Lenovo System Update 2 days ago on another T440p laptop, may have been a slightly different internal spec... not sure but I'm farily sure the driver was named differently in System Update. The driver Installed on that machine fine and functions as intended.

 

The driver could very well could have been updated since then I guess.

I do also know this is a newer batch of T440p's as the box configuration that it ships in has changed and looks completely different.

 

What gives?

Just for giggles I decided to re-image the machine and see if it made a difference.

This time I ran System Update BEFORE any windows update.

 

Hotkey driver installed just fine.

Maybe there's some windows update incompatibility.

I'm not about to go testing all this stuff so if anyone from Lenovo actually reads these posts, it might be worth investigating...
