We talk about Lenovo S205 on an Italian IT Forum and a member try Windows8 64bit on our notebook so here the check:

 

No Card Reader working or detected

 

No BlueTooth working or detected

 

Audio detecded but only with generic Microsoft Driver so we can't call it a decent sound (as i imagine Conexant is a realy poor soundcard and a poor company too)

 

Trying win7 driver for soundcard it seems working but conexant driver is not seen on Device Manager so we don't know if is working fine or still continue with generic Microsoft driver

 

Please LENOVO awake third party company making decent driver for Win8, do it now is better than when official 8 arrive.

Also my Ralink didn't work correctly on Windows 8 Release Preview:

Windows say that device working properly, but when i use switch only bluetooth is enabled or disabled, and in Lenovo Wireless Utility appears only bluetooth. Smiley Sad
