Re: Y560 : Win7 Service Pack 1 is not displayed in the windows update menu!

2011-02-25, 13:44 PM

Any further news on this as I also have the same problem. I believe it is due to the Lenovo specific Intel Driver (as mentioned above) but there appears to be no other version available. Does nyone know if manually installing SP1 will cause any problems?

Lenovo G460 unable to install Windows 7 SP1

2011-02-27, 19:40 PM

I have had my G460 for about a week and wanted to upgrade my Window 7 Ultimate to Service Pack 1 (SP1), but it is not being offered by Windows Update. I tried the Windows Update troubleshooter and downloaded the Microsoft System Update Readiness Tool -  to no avail.

 

Checking microsoft support Article ID: 2505743 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2498452 ) why I wouldn't be offered SP1 update, it says:

Check whether you have Intel integrated graphics driver IGDKMD64.SYS and whether you upgraded the driver - Windows 7 SP1 will not appear in Windows Update if update 2454826 is not installed. Windows Update will not offer you update KB2454826 if you are using one of the following Intel integrated graphics drivers:

  • Igdkmd64.sys (64-bit), versions 8.15.10.2104 through 8.15.10.2141 <<--This is the one I have (.2104)

It also says: If you have the Intel integrated graphics driver and driver version 8.15.10.2104 through 8.15.10.214, visit the computer manufacturer's website to see whether a newer driver is available.  Unfortunately, 8.15.10.2104 is the only driver on the Lovono driver site:  Intel Onboard Graphics Driver     Intel   8.15.10.2104    2010-08-31    32.0 MB  Windows 7 64bit

 

Is there another way to get an updated driver?  Or another way to get SP 1?

Yes, it seems like I'm not the only one not able to update Windows 7... the reasons are clearly outlined - will there be a solution?

Windows 7 SP1 will not appear in Windows Update if update 2454826 is not installed.
Windows Update will not offer you update KB2454826 if you are using one of the following Intel integrated graphics drivers:

- Igdkmd32.sys (32-bit), versions 8.15.10.2104 through 8.15.10.2141

Hi,

 

Finally, I'm able to download SP1 after I update my Intel HD Grapchic driver to newer version.

 

Just for your info,'

 

We need to uninstall first the exist driver version of Intel HD from our laptop. After that, we can install online the newest version from internet.

 

Issue resolved for me :)

Thanks a lot for your all advise

Lundy,

I would suggest you wait for the driver  to be made available for your system from the Lenovo website.  If it is not there now, then it is not ready for your system. The 64 bit testing may have not finalized and they will not release it until it passes all the tests.  It is more than likely that they have run into a problem and are working on it.

 

 If you have not received SP1 via windows update, you can download it from the MS download site, however that would not be advisable as you may end up with BSODs with this driver being a key prerequisite. NB: The distributed version (WU version) of SP1 would be the one that you should use.    If you chose not to wait and take the risk, then  that is up to you.  If you do this,  I would suggest you have the SP1 uninstaller available, get all your apps to the latest release levels and take a full system backup.   Good luck.

Please bare in mind that although there is lenovo presence in the forum, nevertheless this is a user-to-user community, and not official support channel with staffed lenovo personnels.
