Thinkpad Tablet 2 can't run Windows 10

Hello,

      "Get Windows 10" or the built-in updater states that the ThinkPad Tablet 2 cannot run Windows 10.  The reason seems to be because of the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator.   The exact message states:

 

Here's why Windows 10 can't be installed on this PC.

Intel(R) Graphics Meida Accelerator

The display manufacturer hasn't made your display compatible with Windows 10.  Check with the manufacturer for support.

 

Does anyone know if there will eventually be support for the ThinkPad Tablet 2 by Intel, Microsoft, or Lenovo?  Is there an updated driver that I might need to install?  Thank you.

Don't be fooled by the link to the drivers posted above!

 

The first download link on that page (Description: Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor Z2760 IPC with SCU Driver Installer)

will not install the drivers you want, but will instead put a utility called "Driver Toolkit" on your computer that claims to find the necessary drivers and, for a price of at least $30, automate the driver installation process for you. Don't trust that program!

 

 

Instead, use the second download link, which has the legitimate driver installation process and does not cost a penny - just the way it's supposed to be. (Just to be sure, make sure the description above the button reads as followsSmiley Happy

  • Driver Version: 6.2.9200.28847
  • Release Date: 2013-01-06
  • File Size: 24.86M
  • Supported OS: Windows XP 32bit, Windows Vista 32bit, Windows 7 32bit, Windows 8 32bit

 

 

UPDATE! Installing the drivers and a reboot later, the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator compatiblity problem remains. So, the problem has yet to be solved!

Re: Thinkpad Tablet 2 can't run Windows 10

I was able to install windows 10 onto my thinkpad but I have a big warning to everyone - it probably won't work well.

 

What I did was I started with Windows 8.1.  I put the install media onto a usb stick from another computer. I put the USB stick in and ran the setup program.  When asked what kind of install I wanted to do, I chose to upgrade and wipe out all windows files (but keep all my personal files).  After windows 10 was installed, the system was extremely laggy.  Turns out all the drivers are wrong for this setup, so I downloaded the windows 8.1 "Intel Platform Drivers" from lenovo (http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/thinkpad-tablet-series/thinkpad-tablet-2/downloads/... and installed them.  After that, the computer was a lot better.  

 

Now for the big problem.  The display adapter drivers aren't fully compatible with the tablet and you will get some odd behavior in windows 10.  For example, some text/buttons may be missing.  This was the best I could do to make it the most stable system - and I've tried lots of drivers from Intel and such.  I hope they come up with new drivers as I do like Windows 10.

Re: Thinkpad Tablet 2 can't run Windows 10

I used the same driver package and seems to be doing OK - except for one unknown device ACPI\INT33B4: Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor Z2760 Security Engine
It is just not taking the driver from this pack or the earlier consolidated back. system gives either installation error of IRQ error.

At first, Intel didn't intend to make drivers available, but I suspect the backlash has caused them to have a rethink. It looks as though they are now working on a graphics driver:
