Hey guys, this windows 8 Pro unit does not go to desktop so I was going to install from disk but at windows setup I am seeing a Lenovo_Recovery partition so how can I do the recovery instead of wiping the drive and reinstalling please?

It installed fine but now having issue getting the drivers, when I go to the drivers page here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t440s/downloads

 

and I select the chipset, network and wireless drivers for windows 8 64 bit, what I am getting is a "Lenovo Service Bridge" download application which can't run on the machine because I can't connect it to the net??

Personally I think that's a better option - you get to include / exclude whatever you like. When you say "disk" I'm guessing that's just a Windows disk? If so, remember to install all appropriate drivers immediately after the install (and an Anti Virus App). You would get the drivers from the Lenovo website and ONLY from the Lenovo website. Install the chipset driver first.

It took a bit but click the eyeball next to the the Wifi driver you need. This will let you download the Wifi driver only.

Hmnn,  works thx. Only issues I am seeing now are these drives, how can I know which driver to download for this please? I had thought the chipset driver would have covered those. Also no audio but the audio driver shows correctly. There is audio from the Headphone Out jack but not the internal speakers

You can get a clue by looking at the Vendor and Device IDs. Did you install the Intel Management Engine?

That's the Realtek HD Audio drive at the Lenovo link you posted. I see the Intel Management Engine there under Chipset.

Thx, regarding the sound can it be the speakers are shot? I had clicked on the Test option in the sound properties and no sound.

Good Question. I'm not sure. Things to try.

 

Check the Windows Audio Service and see if it is enabled and started

Right click the speaker icon and select playback devices. Make sure there is a green checkmark next to speakers.

Search for dxdiag and run to check for any issues

Run the audio troubleshooter. 

Boot a live linux disk and play an mp3

If booting a live linux disk could not play a mp3 then I believe the speakers are defective. I don't think this the problem but It could also mean the Lenovo drivers are borked. I have seen this happen with Dell drivers. Uninstall the Audio driver in Device Manager and install the Realtek HD audio driver here. Make sure you install the Intel Management Engine also.

 

Lenovo has a System Update program that may find additional drivers. I would avoid the BIOS update.
