X220T: Windows 8 drivers

[ Edited ]

I know the developer preview just came out, but I was wondering when we can see beta drivers for the preview version of Windows 8? I just installed it on the X220 tablet and I can't get the tablet buttons or the trackpoint middle button to work properly.

 

I know there must be working drivers because they use the X220 as a demo machine in the BUILD keynotes Smiley Wink

Re: Windows 8 drivers

I have Win8 running in a virtual machine (VirtualBox). It works but the touch screen doesn't register gestures...just "clicks". Mouse, trackpad, and trackpoint are fine. hmm....

Re: Windows 8 drivers

I'm pretty sure that's just virtualbox abstracting out the scroll and touch events. Your install of windows 8 isn't seeing the trackpoint device, it's seeing a generic mouse device provided by virtualbox, same with the touchscreen.

Same here.  Tablet buttons do not work.  No problem with trackpoint middle button, though.  Current (Windows 7 x64) drivers for other hardware seem to work OK out of the box, including Access Connections with Sierra 3G card.

Re: Windows 8 drivers

I can't even find the device ID for the ACPI in the device manager, there was a message in the event log though. It says LEN0068 was configured to null (). Oh well it looks like I'm waiting for official drivers...
