Received Win 7 Ultimate x64 discs from Lenovo today. Ran through the two hour install process and the drivers that came with it are working fine. The drivers off the website refuse to install on my own copy of Windows.

 

For now, to resolve this issue, use the recovery CDs. If you don't have them, call up Lenovo support and they'll send them to you via UPS.

Hey johnmaine,

summarizing what I read here, on the X120e the 2x2 ABGN WiFi card does not work after you installed your own SSD with Win7 Pro 64x. All other drivers except the ABGN driver which you took from http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-75618 did not work.

It gave you an error code 10.

Thinking that it could be a 64x issue, you installed a 32x OS but the result was the same.

Later on you receive recovery disc from Lenovo and in the disc which has (probably an older version) the driver for the 2x2; that driver worked and you were able to install without the code 10 error.

Curious to know johnmaine, the driver from the website.. would it give you the same error if you use the hard drive that came with your X120e originally?

@All,

Got a note from LANOrge, his comments as follows of the steps he did.

1. Vanilla installation of Win 7 Pro x64.
2. Install all MS drivers
3. Install WLAN driver from support site
4. WLAN card work fine.

Another test
1. Uninstall driver and manually remove all INF of drivers.
2. Run TVSU to install WLAN driver
3. Works fine.

LANOgre suggested to install all MS updates without the drivers from MS, instead install the drivers from the support site.

---

Appreciate those who are having issues with this could post on the steps which LANOgre did if there are any difference from what those affected did.

Hello,


Just to check, for those who are experiencing this problem with a non-Lenovo-provided installation of Microsoft Windows 7, have you used the ThinkVantage System Update software to update your X120e?  If so, what were the results?

 

Regards,

Just to clarify and reinforce.

 

Step #2. Install all MS updates, but never any of the drivers from MS Update.

Microsoft driver updates have caused serious problems in the past, so pleas eonly use the Lenovo drivers.

Be sure you also get optional updates like .NET Framework updates.  A lot of the utilties need this to function properly.

Just confirming with you, LANOgre - I ran into the same issue today on a SSD+reformat on Win7 64-bit. I couldn't fix it with any amount of uninstalling or manual driver installs, and a previous install on the same SSD worked without any special action - I don't remember in what order things were installed, but I didn't run into this issue over multiple reformats until today.

Per the instructions I reinstalled, ran all of the critical/recommended non-driver windows updates, installed TVSU, installed *only* TVT and the WLAN driver via TVSU, and the wifi appeared. Rebooted as requested by TVSU, and the wifi's still working after the reboot, was able to connect, etc.

I'm now installing the rest of the TVSU updates, will see how it goes.

I am having the same Code 10 issues. I have tried everything that JameZ listed. I have updated all the MS updates [just updates, not drivers], and ran all the driver updates through TVSU.. I checked to see if the radios were enaled through FN+F5.. I don't know what else to do.. 

 

Here is another point-of-view.. My system used to work fine just a few days back.. I went to BIOS, changed the BIOS to UEFI ONLY, and re-done all the installation. I had no driver installation issues before.. So maybe, there is something going on with UEFI?

Yeah, erkerb - I was coming back to post just that. It worked perfectly for me with a BIOS install, then I did everything over again with a UEFI install and it broke the same way. Went back and repeated the installation with a BIOS install again, and it worked fine.

 

I'd bet it's something about the UEFI install that's doing it.
