To stay with Win 8 until problem fixed. I don't know if this is for all manufacturers or just a Lenovo-situation. But what i don't understand is that their latest computers already loaded with 8.1 & updated drivers exist & function with no problem (according to them) since the newer models now shipping to stores (or from their site to order) have the necessary updated drivers for win 8.1
    thanks -

    Yeah, it's most like for that model number.

    In addition to waiting for drivers needing to be available, they may also be working on a new BIOS/UEFI firmware as well.

    I would wait, and keep checking back with Lenovo to see when they have them available.
