Re:Thinkpad i7-7820HQ not supported for Win 11

2021-10-15, 11:28 AM

Hello,

 

The Business Unit has informed me that the ThinkPad P71 & P51 were not included on Lenovo's list of supported devices because they do not meet the requirements set by Microsoft and are considered as end of development life by Lenovo. I will personally add that I would expect normal driver support to be provided into 2023 as will security patch updates if required, according to the PSREF for the P71 system it will become end of support in 2023, Microsoft has also stated that they will continue providing twice yearly updates for Windows 10 into 2025.

 

Systems with the i7-7820HQ were built on a legacy (NON DHC) platform used throughout all the P51 & P71 system types which did not include Modern (DHC), this was done to avoid mixing hardware in the market place, they will remain with the legacy drivers.

 

For those wishing to upgrade to Windows 11 Microsoft published the below information in regard to installing Windows 11 on devices which do not meet the minimum requirements.

Re:Thinkpad i7-7820HQ not supported for Win 11

So I have a 2 year old $3000+ laptop that is at end of life and the only thing I can do to solve this is buy a new laptop. I am aghast as to why a company like IBM-Lenovo would do this kind of thing to customers. It figures though. I think that if something isn't done like a program to cheaply upgrade my motherboard and CPU to a more current architecture then there are plenty of other PC and laptop manufacturers out there for my next PC. I hate to be nasty about it, but if I am going to pay $3K for a laptop I'd like it to remain current for for than 2 years.

Hello,

 

The ThinkPad T470p was released with multiple CPU and GPU configurations.  Can you please tell us the Machine Type Model(s) for the model(s) you are inquiring about?  The MTMs should be labeled on the bottom of the units.

 

Regards,

Hello,


The "CTO" in the Machine Type Model indicates the machine was a custom build, so I cannot look up the exact configuration as it was shipped on Lenovo's support site.  Can you tell us what CPU it has?

 

Regards,

The website listed 'Lenovo T470p with i7-7820HQ' as being compatible for some time but apparently it was removed from the list around October 4th. It didn't say anything about GPUs...
