If you can't find the Windows 8/8.1 drivers then I would try installing the Windows 7 drivers in compatibility mode and then see how they perform.

hello,

I got all the drivers for my X200 tablet by first installing Restore disk then upgraded to windows 8. once in windows 8 I searched each driver from windows.old folder one I had all the drivers I deleted the folder.

if no restore disks use the lenovo updater to get all drivers needed then upgrade to windows 8. I done that also and it work.
Hope I was able to help

Thank you! I don't want those "features" so no need to load drivers.

I rather like 8.1 (after turning off Metro and installing Classic Shell) on my X200 tablet, and when I swapped in an SSD I'd loaded with 8.1 in a T61 it booted without fuss. Windows 7 video driver works fine installed in compatibility mode.
