[EN] Lenovo M30-70: the drivers partition

As I was writing some days ago, I recently bought a Lenovo M30-70. I used Lenovo enterprise laptops for years at work, but this is the first time I own one. Once booted, I’ve been really positively impressed by one thing on the software-side. Lenovo provides to you an extra partition with all the drivers inside. I dreamed about something like this for ages in my fifteen+ years of experience as IT technician for private customers. Everytime I had to prepare a machine, I had to deal with the manufacturers’ crappy websites in order to dowload the drivers, copy them on an external drive, install them on the target machine, how frustrating! Lot of time wasted for such a simple thing, expecially in the pre-DSL era. Now finally big computer brands have started to address this issue! Thumb up for Lenovo!

  1. […] I don’t think I’m the only one out there who thinks that Windows 8.1 is crap, do I? In my opinion, Windows 8.1 is a totally confusing and misconceived operating system, but I think that also Microsoft has the same opinion as I do, since they rolled back a lot of things in the new Windows 10. Anyway, my shiny Lenovo M30-70 shipped with a licensed copy of Windows 8.1. Before getting rid of it, and installing whatever else operating system you wish, it’s a good practice to create a recovery disk on an usb pendrive. Since you paied for the OS, and you could need that license in the future (ex. to reinstall it before selling it, to upgrade to Windows 10 for free…), it’s -warmly- recommended that you backup it. Do it as soon as possible. In my case, Windows 8.1 run for like 20 minutes before I started the procedure, that you can find here. Be aware that you’ll need a pendrive with a size of at least 16 gb, and the recovery disk will take approximately 12 Gb of it. It could be a good idea to backup D: as well, since it contains all the drivers in one place, as I wrote here. […]
