Re: Response to response to requested clarification on Windows 10 build 15063 for the Tablet 2

All I see from the news is that Microsoft doesn't seem to support the CPU installed in Tablet 2 and hence has blocked the Creator and future upgrades. Given the fact that Windows 10 is not officially supported by Microsoft even from the beginning of the release of Windows 10, it becomes pointless for Lenovo to work out a driver for the track point on Windows 10. Although I hope Intel, Microsoft, and Lenovo should solve the issues soon, miracles may not happen. So, don't upgrade to Creator Update if you don't want to try very hard to make things work as smoothly as on Windows 8.1.

 

Just my 2 cent.


I don't know about that. The chipset seemed as functional in 15063 ("Creator's") as it was with 14393 ("Anniversary") and superior to the buggy mess that we had with 10586 ("Fall;" the one where the metro apps got all wigged out). The one and only problem with 15063 on the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the software for the optical Trackpoint; that's it.

 

If 15063 ("Creator's") is intentionally not being delivered through Windows update, (something we haven't yet confirmed) then there has to be a better explanation than Microsoft just not liking the chipset anymore. It's probably for the best though until (if) Lenovo releases a patched version of the optical Trackpoint software (which is highly unlikely). Therefore, 14393 might be where Windows editions stop for this computer, at least for now. I'll watch it and make sure to keep everybody posted either way. At any rate, Microsoft's blessing will probably outlast most people's patience for this machine anyhow.

Re: Thinkpad Tablet 2 : Working well with Windows 10 Creator's Update

I've had a couple problems with the 14393 on my TPT2. One, that every other start up or so, it prompts me to "update" to the current version of Windows 10, saying that Microsoft will no longer support it, coming April 10th, and I will no longer receive vital security updates. Then when I click to do so, nothing happens after I allow the program to run.

 

Also, when I try to set the button on my pen to double click in the settings, it doesn't work. As far as I know, all my pen does when I click the button is make a circle appear on my screen that does absolutely nothing. 

 

Has anyone else had one of these issues that may be able to provide some insight?

Trust me, you don't want 15063. As was mentioned earlier in this thread, it does not work with the Optical Trackpoint software. I'm not sure if 16299 and 17134 are the same way, but if history is any indication, Microsoft creates more problems than it solves with these new builds, so I wouldn't hold my breath. Manually install it from the .iso if you're adventurous, otherwise, stick with 14393. Or just go back to 8.1.

It doesn't actually upgrade. And I gathered from all the posts to steer clear. I guess my question is that will I actually stop receiving security updates? And can I get it to stop prompting me to upgrade?

 

As an aside, the pen thing drives me nuts. Lol

If you manually run the installer, it'll upgrade just fine. As you've seen, however, most folks (especially) don't recommend it for that PC. To answer your question, yes, the build of Windows 10 that your computer is running will be free of Microsoft's blessing shortly (last month for non-education and non-enterprise; October for education and enterprise).

There’s only 14GB of the 64GB spare after Windows 8 and the pre-installed software are accounted for.
