Install 64 bit Windows 7 on ThinkPad x201 tablet

2011-02-14, 16:44 PM

Hi all,

 

I can see the drivers and some of the software support for Win7 64bit but after looking through some of the FAQ and online manuals I can not find a guide that details out in what order the drivers and other support software are to be reinstalled.

 

Does one just install ThinkVantage and let it take over?

 

Background:  This is a ThinkPad that was upgraded from 2 GB and maxed out to 8 GB and the user already tried to reinstall Windows and removed the diagnostic partition.  They managed to get everything working except that the touch screen would only work with the stylus and not finger touch.   So the assumption at this point is that a driver was installed in the wrong order or the wrong driver was installed.

 

Best,

A

Hi all,

 

Wow,  for a premium brand Lenovo's forums are next to useless.

Does no one form Lenovo actually look around in here?

 

I have been doing more research and it seems Lenovo has no procedure for replacing the OS except to make the us pay $50 USD more for a recovery disc.  If this is not the case please enlighten me as to where I can get this or provide a recipe for installing drivers without using the recovery disc.  If that is reallythe case then eMachines seems to provide better support than Lenovo.

 

As it stands right now tomorrow I am going to contact my rep. at CDW-G to exchange this Lenovo x201 tablet for credit.

Nowhere does it say that I have to buy additional software to use a system RAM upgrade.

 

This is really a shame but I promise that if I have to do this I will never buy or recommend a Lenovo product to my customers again.

Hi APerson, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

Remember that this is a user-to-user support community, and it is moderated by volunteers like me. Although there is some Lenovo presence, they can't read and respond to every post. They do try to help with some of the broader issues.

 

If you want a factory Windows 7 install then call Lenovo for the discs:

If you prefer to do a clean Windows 7 install, use ThinkVantage System Update to install the Lenovo drivers:

Hope this helps!

 

 

 

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

After installing Windows 7 64 bits I installed ThinkVantage System Update and everything was OK, but I just needed before that to install the Ethernet card driver.
