Bought T470S with windows 10 pre installed (mistake on my side)
Installed Windows 7 professional that I had but cant find all of the drivers for this model specifically for windows 7. Tried searching intel, lenovo and other sites, no avail.
Was happy to find network driver so that at least i can use internet over cat5.
List of what seems not working in device manager:
~ network controller
~ PCI data acuisition and signal processing controller
~ PCI memory controller
~ PCI simple communications controller
~SM bus controller
~ unknown device?
~ generic blurtooh adapter
-None of hot keys on keyboard are working, scrolling on touch pad, wifi, bluetooth, volume changing and brightness.
If anyone had same problems with drivers and was successfull please share your experience, if not i will need to go back to linux.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Not sure what you mean by you searched for drivers at Lenovo? Or are you saying you found the drivers but they dont work? Either way below is the link to T470s. Click "Drivers and Software" on top. You can Choose Windows 7 32 bit or windows 7 64 bit. Also that link will have "system update" as well. It should pull down all software for your laptop automatically. Also you metnion T470s but wasnt sure if you had the 20JS, 20JT, 20HF or 20hg models.
Hope this helps.

model name: 20HFCTO1WW
I have tried the provided link, thank you!
Also what i have done:
https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/intel-driver-support-assistant.html - let me installed bluetooth and wifi
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht003029 - let me install system updates (BIOS, function keys)
So now I have a working laptop except 2 items:
~Brightnes not adjustable
~PCI and SM bus controller has no drivers not found - when I go to device manager to "scan for hardware changes" i get pop-up saying "unsopported hardware - your PC uses a processor that is designed for the latest version of Windows ..."

You've got a 20HF there, with an Intel 7th Generation processor which does not support Windows 7:
