Can I install Windows 8.1 on Ideapad 320 15AST 80XV (AMD A6-9220 R4)?

2018-05-01, 7:33 AM

Hello everyone


I just bought a Lenovo Ideapad 15AST 80XV laptop with AMD A6-9220 and R4.  It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home.  My previous laptop had Windows 8.1 on it, and I would prefer to stay on Windows 8.1 if at all possible.  Do you know if it is possible to make this laptop work with Windows 8.1 (i.e. drivers, etc)?


The reason I want to stay with Windows 8.1 is that Windows 8.1 gives continuous visual feedback about windows (a non-disappearing scrollbar so that i can distinguish between a window and a dialog, and get an idea of how much of the content is below the fold, sufficient contrast between GUI elements to see them clearly without having to tilt the screen, and clear borders around windows when windows lie on top of each other, and a slightly wider grab zone for resizing windows).


I do need to use the trackpad, so an installation that disables the trackpad is not an option for me.
