[Bearbeiten] Common stuff

  • DiskCryptor does not work on Win8. To be precise, hibernation mode does not work. Unfortunately no response(s) from ntldr. TrueCrypt works perfectly, also for SSD (in my case).
  • Tiles & stuff is ridiculous and makes Windows unuseable. ClassicShell (http://www.classicshell.net) helps: Enable start button, start menu and remove magic corners. Unfortunately the classic has disappeared completely which makes using Win8 uncomfortable and ugly.
  • Tablet support (IME etc) in Win8 is an impertinence! It's not existent at all. Unfortunately no replacement known.
  • Camera: g1c810ww.exe (Integrated Camera Driver for Windows 8, 1.0.0.19)
  • Card Reader: g1s808ww.exe (Ricoh Media Card Reader Driver for Windows 8, 2.24.18.01)
  • Graphics: Intel HD Graphics Driver for Windows 8 (64-bit), 9.17.10.2875

...

  • TODO: Battery Firmware Upgrade


[Bearbeiten] Power Manager

  • Lenovo Power Management Driver, 1.67.0.02, giku06ww.exe
  • Power Manager: Officially not supported on Win8. Does not install without compatibility mode
    • Install hfu407ww.exe to c:\swtools\readyapps\pwrmgrv
    • Run setup.exe in Win7 Compatibility mode (don't forget to set for all users if not running with admin rights!)

[Bearbeiten] Bluetooth

Bluetooth Drivers for Win7 do not work (g4wb12ww.exe) Install Drivers for Win8 (g4we14ww.exe). Compatibility mode not necessary (?)

[Bearbeiten] Hotkeys etc.

Clean Uninstall:

  • Remove "On Screen Keyboard"
  • Remove "System Interface Driver"
  • In Device Manager, remove "Lenovo HID Mini-driver for Hardware Radio Switch"

gevu60ww.exe works better for me and has Flightmode feature built-in. Does not seem to have (need?) "System Interface Driver"

Install gevu60ww.exe. Do not install driver from this file. Run c:\DRIVERS\HOTKEY\SETUP.exe in Win7 Compatibility mode. If not logged in as admin, make sure you change compatibility mode for all users.

Then Fn+F5 should work + HW switch. BT is by default always on. Create a shortcut in Startup folder with:

"C:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY\TpFnF5.exe" /BTOFF

Attention: When the Desktop has the focus while pressing Fn+F5, it is overwritten by Windows and the device toggle flight mode instead! Make sure that a different application has focus while pressing Fn+F5!

[Bearbeiten] Wireless Hardware Switch

Nothing needed. Leaves "Unknown Device" (DEV_0078) in Device Manager. If you install "Lenovo HID HW Radio Driver for Windows 8 (32-bit , 64-bit) - ThinkPad" http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032422 (g1hd55ww.exe), flight mode will toggle in addition to the Lenovo Tool messages!

If you do not want this, either don't install the driver or disable the "HID-compliant device" which has DEV_0078 as parent. I don't know if this has an impact on power consumption etc.

[Bearbeiten] Fn+F6 (ThinkVantage Communications Utility)

  • ThinkVantage Communications Utility, 3.0.44.0

This hot key is registered twice:

  1. Rename c:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY\tpfnf6.exe to c:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY\tpfnf6.exe.old
  2. Use ThinkpadHotKey.exe (see below) to map C:\Program Files\Lenovo\Communications Utility\TPFNF6.exe with parameter /HOTKEY to Fn+F6 (only if not yet done by Communications Utility!)
