Windows 10 Technical Preview - Compatibility List

2014-10-02, 6:28 AM

Admin Edit - As Windows 10's official date draws near, I wanted to share a link to Lenovo's official Windows 10 system support list.  This page includes a number of noted limitations and considerations.

 

This community thread obviously started far in advance and may be a great resource for customers who want to try to upgrade systems not officially supported by Lenovo.  Information in this thread is not validated by Lenovo.

 

========================================================================

 

 

 

 

If your model is compatible with Windows 10, post in the following format:

Model:
Build Number:
Compatible: Yes/No
Workarounds:

For example:

 

Model: ThinkPad W530 (2447-23G)
Build Number: 9841

Compatible: Yes

Workarounds: Install all drivers manually, ThinkVantage System Update does not work yet.

 

Why this list?

Even though these are just preview bulds, it might be useful to plan your purchase in advance if you want to use Windows 10. Windows 10 will probably be available for free to Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users.

 

NOTE: This list does not guarantee your Lenovo product will work with the final release of Windows 10.

Kind regards,

baube19: Build Number is supposed to be the build number of Windows 10 Preview you tested your Lenovo product/model with. '4296-a18' is your machine type or MTM.

Model: Yoga 2 Pro
Build number: 9841
Compatible: Yes

  • Setup: the graphical user interface of the pre-installation wizard where you have to select your partition size is is a little bit corrupted. But you should be able to select the partition you want to install it on without issues. This more a scaling issue with the QHD display. Installation wizard is still usable!
  • Card Reader: Refuses to install but works out of the box. No drivers required.

 

 

Keep in mind that compatibility with the Windows 10 Preview doesn't guarantee compatiblity with other builds or the final release of Windows 10. But if you are willing to test Windows 10 to improve the end-product, now is your chance.

You can always run it in a virtual machine with VMWare Player, Hyper-V or Virtualbox to test if you are afraid to install it.

Most of my testing has been focused on testing my employer's software and not OS functionality, but on all of the above I can confirm that video display (GPU/IGP and LCD), Ethernet, WLAN, keyboard and TrackPoint all work.  I don't have the MTM's for two of the machines with me, so will edit this post to add them when I have a chance.

Aryeh Goretsky

Re: Windows 10 Technical Preview - Compatibility List

Hi all.

 

1. W520 - (4282-W4Q) - Upgraded from legacy Windows 8.1 Pro x64 - No hardware issues, Lenovo Settings shows only black screen.

2. X1 - (1293-W16) - Clean UEFI install x64 - No hardware issues, same problem with Lenovo Settings.

3. T400 - (6474-CTO) - Clean legacy install x64 - No hardware issues, same problem with Lenovo Settings.

 

All Windows 7/8/8.1 drivers I have tried so far work without compatibility settings. Overall a really pleasant and problem free experience. All machines in a very workable state, but of course there are a couple of niggles and bugs in the OS itself, but none of them are hardware related.

 

Cheers!

ThinkPad P1 - i7-8750H/32GB // ThinkPad P70 - Xeon E3-1505M/64GB
ThinkPad W540 (20BG) - i7-4800MQ/32GB // ThinkPad W520 (4282-W4Q) - i7-2720QM/32GB
ThinkPad T450s (20BW) - i7-5600U/12GB // Yoga 900 - i7-6500U/8GB
ThinkPad T61 (7665-CTO) - T7700/4GB // ThinkPad T60p (8741-C2G) - T7400/4GB

Hi,

X200 Tablet.

 

Windows 10 upgrade over Windows 7 Pro.

No touchscreen at first, a Windows update fixed the pen, touch doesn't work.  

No hardware problems, Windows 10 drivers all work.

No workarounds needed.

 

Still testing.

 

Regards,

Dave
