LAN and other drivers

#1 Post by TOTAL » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:42 pm


I am looking for a set of drivers for x230 windows 7 64 bit including drivers for LAN, graphics, bluetooth etc.

Can you please confirm if what is to be found here is such a set of drivers?

I put a lot of work into configuring windows on my ssd in thinkpad x201, when the computer turned out to be faulty. I have bought x230, but would hope I do not have to do the same exercise again. I have tried just running the disk in x230, and it is starting up, and to get going, I just need gfx and lan.

Can you please advise? I am aware lots of purists are going to say this is not the way to do it but I have once migrated to x201 from x200 - and all was up and running within maybe half an hour - I just need the drivers.

Thanks a lot.

If you need just gfx and lan, then get those from Intel:

Not sure if x230 comes with 82579, if yes, try this:

Download, unpack and install through Device manager, not through running the exe

Here's what I have found in the meantime. Don't remember which one was that worked, but all is fine now, thanks.
