ThinkPad 10 20C1 unavailable drivers

I recently was given a ThinkPad 10 (20C1) from a friend. He has done a fresh install of Windows 10 64 bit (Ver 1903) on it. I have been trying for days, in vain, to get the proper Lenovo drivers installed for it. The thing thinks it's a desktop, even when I put it in tablet mode. The touchscreen doesn't work within Windows, and neither does the pen. I don't even have a battery indicator within Windows. I was able to get wifi working on it, and have downloaded both Lenovo Sytem Update and Lenovo Service Bridge, however the only update either give the option for is a BIOS update, which I attempt to run, and I get an error saying a valid battery needs to be installed when doing this update, and it won't go any further. However, it is obvious the battery works as the tablet runs while not being plugged in. I really want this thing to work, and am just about at my wit's end. Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

EDIT: I have done some searching, and found a suggestion of installing Lenovo Vantage from the Microsoft Store. I have done so, and still received the same error: "This process requires a charged battery to avoid an accidental power-off during an update. Turn off the system and install a charged battery in the system." I receive that same message every time I try to update the BIOS, from any of the update software.

Re: ThinkPad 10 20C1 unavailable drivers

You may have to update the drivers maually from https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/thinkpad-tablet-series/thinkpad-10/downloads/dri... , but mny of them look rather old, so hopefully Windows Update can get some newer updates. 

 

 

Given the battery warning, you might want to start with the ones below, and then see if the warnings go away.

 

Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Laptops

Best of luck,
