Windows 8 Consumer Preview issue on W520

I installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview last week and I have issues with ThinkVantage Toolbox and Lenovo System Update.

 

- Once I launch the ThinkVantage gives me error with Un-identified OS.

- Lenovo System Update gives me error once I start scanning for the new updates.

- Battery draining fast on the W520 system with the Windows 8.

 

Does anyone have similar issue with Windows 8 Consumer Preview? I'm looking for a solution.

Well, it is a beta, so don't expect all drivers to install properly. You'll have to try installing each driver manually, and hope that they work.

Well I upgrade my PC from windows 7. So, you saying I should uninstall all the Lenovo drivers and install it again manually?

You can try, but they probably won't work.

NVidia recently released the new driver! I installed it and I see things works much better than before. I hope Lenovo would release the drivers sooner.

Re: Windows 8 Consumer Preview issue on W520

Mine won't even boot when the Quadro 2000M is enabled. It just completely hangs, and won't even respond to the power button being held down. I had to remove the battery and unplug it just to get it to shut off.
