Re: windows 8.1 tablet 2 issues

Mine did not activate either. It was after installing all the Lenovo drivers (sans the video driver) that I noticed it was activated. I needed to do a silent install of the Lenovo System Update and then just let that do the work.

Re: windows 8.1 tablet 2 issues

How did you guys get 8.1 installed?

 

I have been trying to update my TPT2 from Win8 Pro 32-bit and after the 8.1 download from the WinStore, it goes though the process of checking hardware, installation and upon reboot it just goes into a dark screen and after 60+ minutes of a dark screen nothing happens. Upon a manual forced reboot, I get a screen that says Previous version of Windows is being installed, and after 5-10 minutes Win8 boots up not 8.1.

 

All drivers are up to date per Lenovo System Update. Manually checked Lenovo's site and versions are correct.

 

Any suggestions? Any help? Thanks in advance......

upgrade to 8.1 last night and the tablet 2 is more snappy. issues so far are, sleep won't resume sometimes and graphic driver crashes, this might be the reason sleep might not resume. Email appears to also have some display issues but is working ok at the moment

Yes, the graphics driver issues are being reported on another thread as well:

What version Bios are you using?

 

Thanks.

I had an initial secure boot issue but not sure that helps you. It may be you will need to restore 8 to factory and then try.

I hope multey359 that was for me. I have UEFI Secure Boot as off. Any other BIOS setting I should check?

 

Thanks for the reply!!!

1.31 will NOT allow me to change the value for Secure Boot. Click on Disabled a pop-up occurs, choose Enabled. Click Save and Exit confirm changes, reboot, go back into Bios check value for Secure Boot, still says Disabled.
