    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    The only thing I can think of is modifying the .inf file to force it to install in Windows 8.1. But I really have no clue how to go about doing that.

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    This seems to list drivers for Windows 8.1 in .zip file. Intel WIFI Drivers Have you tried that page yet?

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    I'm not sure if I should just edit the post for this so apologies in advance for the double post. So I was curious why I had no malware issue with Snappy. And I found a thread somewhere on the internet (I don't know if I'm allowed to post links to other websites) that describes what happened...

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    I think I've read people having success with Intel drivers by modifying the .inf(?) file and installing the driver via Device Manager. I'm sorry about Snappy. There seems to be two different forks now, the one without adware (Origin) and the one with adware ("Not Origin"), which they claim to...

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    OK, so I've managed to install both of the missing drivers. The best practice is installing the drivers from the actual manufacturer or vendor website. But I'm desperate. So I used two programs to help with finding the drivers. First is 3DP Chip to install the SMBus driver and the second one is...

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    Haven't tried that yet, but I will now. I'm just wary about BSODs since SMBus and ACPI seem like they would be OS specific.

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    I'm surprised they don't have drivers for 8.1 considering how Windows 7 drivers are available. I know how it's good practice getting drivers from the OEM but at this point it's not really an option. So if you're okay with getting drivers from other places you can get some functionality at least...

    Lenovo IdeaPad 110-15IBR Missing drivers after downgrading from Windows 10 to 8.1

    Lenovo only lists drivers for Windows 7 and Windows 10. I managed to find a WLAN driver for 8.1 and install most of the other missing drivers. All but two: SMBus and an "Unknown Device" which is apparently for ACPI. The laptop is much faster now on this OS. I just want to find the missing drivers.

    Installed 8.1 on 2015 Win 10 laptop

    I also just formatted to 8.1 and it's definitely much faster than 10.
