X230i Looking for Hotkey drivers

2013-01-26, 12:40 PM

I am downloaded all drivers from the Lenovo website so i can install a new OS. Unfortunately, the Hotkey drivers seem to be missing; unlike the other downloads it doesn't contain a link to a file in the list (look here http://download.lenovo.com/express/ddfm.html in the driver matrix for example). 

 

I found the Hotkey drivers for almost all other models; is it possible to install those instead?

You are welcome.
Believe me you can refuse to load and install any Lenovo sw or driver from within TVSU but this application will save you a lot of time and even relieve you from loading unneeded sw and drivers for your laptop model and OS version.

TVSU is one of "must have" application. May be the last one from IBM staff.

You've done unneeded work IMHO. Just download and install ThinkVantage System Update application after OS installation and connection with Internet. That application will find and install all needed up to date drivers and software from Lenovo site itself. Of course you can deselect any item for your choice.

About Hotkey. Try previous version

Thanks! Point is I want a clean Windows installation without any overhead, unneccessary software, or bells and whristles. So I only want the drivers but not much of the ThinkVantage stuff (which i will only keep as a backup).
