    Drivers missing after a Windows 8 Pro x64 UEFI Install on


    I just formatted and installed.
    Drivers missing after a Windows 8 Pro x64 UEFI Install


    Here is a snapshot: http://www.mediafire.com/?8h3mriy9fr8t3h3


    1) Why Windows UEFI'ed installed couln't be able to detect THOSE 3 DEVICES thus INSTALLING THEIR DRIVERS?


    2) Windows Legacy Instaled misses not only 3 but 6 devices.


    3) Last but not least, although identified my wireless card (BroadCom 802.11n) hence Wi-Fi drivers are installed by Win8 themselves, by connection speed is way to slow........


    HELP and explain please!!

    Mediafire appears to require that their download manager be installed. I'm not going to do that.

    Sorry. Maybe I hit the wrong button on the page. On my second visit, I got no nonsense about downloaders.

    My Greek is nonexistent. Yes, looks like you didn't get some drivers. Win8 includes a lot of drivers. Windows Update can supply more. You still may need to download drivers for some of your hardware, especially for a notebook. Does Lenovo support Win8 on your Ideapad? If you give us the complete model number, we may be able to provide more concrete suggestions.

    If they have no Windows 8 drivers, Windows 7 ones may work. If the driver installer complains about the OS, use the Compatibility Troubleshooter (I have no idea what it's called in Greek) to run the installer in Win7 mode.

    I can't help you with your questions.

    However, the Z580 appears to have Windows 8 support:

    Lenovo Support - Drivers & Software (GR)?

    The hardware looks pretty much mainstream (Intel, Broadcom, Realtek etc.), so it's not as if you needed obscure drivers.

    The only machine I have 8 installed on is a desktop. I installed a few drivers that weren't installed during the initial Windows 8 installation. Maybe Windows Update would have supplied them eventually, butI didn't wait. I don't recall that any were needed for the fundamental Win8 operation, but the installation process was not 100% automatic.

    i) BUT it leaves unpexplained how the most hardware parts of a laptop are being specific identified by Windows while others cannot be identified.


    ii) Why Windows 8's Update doesn't search the web by itself per hardware_id to find and install the missing drivers for the unspecified device?


    iii) Whats that usb2.0-crw device i still see good for? windows works without it ok.

    WINDOWS 7 , 8


    Drivers provided by lenovo themselves dont work for windows 8 then how will windows find it for you or them? to make understand better i will give an example

    think windows as petrol
    your laptop as a car

    Now the car runs on petrol but if your cd palyer in your car doesn't work it has nothing to do with petrol.It is not the function of petrol to keep the cd player working.similarly the brakes has nothing to do with petrol. you can not blame others fault on petrol.so if the drivers dose not work, windows (MS) is not to be blamed,Microsoft had released developers preview just or this reason. It is the duty of the hardware vendor/manufacturer to develop a driver that works with windows 8.so if you want to complain this issue to some one, it must be lenovo or the vendor/manufacturer of those device whose drivers are missing.
