Bluetooth driver update failed on Windows Update - driver from lenovo.com wiped C drive

2011-08-18, 4:33 AM

Awesome.

I have a 1 week old X220 that had its C drive wiped tonight by the current driver package that is still listed on Lenovo.com

@jeffmik,

There was a post on tweeter from you saying that the BT package from Windows Update wiped your C:\ too? Is it the one from MS or from Lenovo which wiped the C:\?

Also there is a new driver from engineering which have fix this issue. We are currently pending the team to update the website. You can download the BT driver directly from the link below.

The Windows Update driver removed the device from my system completely and I couldn't get it to work - there was no driver rollback option available. Came to Lenovo.com and downloaded the driver package manually and it wiped C drive. 

 

Did the factory refresh option and everything is back to normal but honestly haven't decided if I'm going to keep the X220 now.

@jeffmik,

I will talk to engineering about talking to MS to remove the updates from the Windows Update. For the time being, do download the BT drivers from the link which I've posted above.

Sorry for the inconvenienced caused.

http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/7zwb05ww.exe will not load. Can I assume that I should do nothing about this update failure until your developers find the bug? I have a T410s and have not lost data or experienced any "wipes". There are some issues with the BT, like not finding the mouse after a "Resume" from hibernation.

 

Let me know. Thanks.
