Downgrade Miix 320 to Windows 8.1

2019-05-27, 3:42 AM

Hello,

 

Just want to get your idea if it is possible to load and install windows 8.1 on the Miix 320. Will hardware and drivers work without problems? I think this tablet is better served by this OS than windows 10. For one, Windows 8.1 also has a more tablet-friendly, fluid UI. All I need is Netflix from the store and I am good.

 

I am speaking based on my experience, having a Samsung Ativ 500T with windows 8.1. I feel it's faster, more fluid, although some specs of it is lower than the Miix 320. I guess having an SSD also helped it. It came with windows 8 and was upgraded to windows 8.1 then 10 but decided to downgrade to 8.1 due to performance.

 

Thoughts?

Hi SuchALoserYeah! The Miix 320 is not compatible in downgrading to Windows 8.1 and you can refer to this link: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/miix-series/miix-320-10icr?linkTrack=Homepage%3ABody_Search%20Products&searchType=3&keyWordSearch=Miix%20320-10ICR%20Tablet%20(ideapad). There are no driver option for Windows 8.1. Hope that answers your question.

Hallo, ich habe das auch probiert und das funktioniert soweit, außer dass ich den grafik treiber nicht installieren kann.

Hast du evtl. einen funktionierenden Treiber?
