Drivers for Windows 7 x64 on a Lenovo M700

12/19/2016 1027 views
I have searched and read and played with this for over 2 weeks now.  I need to add drivers to the kbox 2000 to allow a Lenovo M700 to both capture up and deploy down images.  Apparently it is a common issue with skylake machines running the Intel 100 series chipsets.  I have built my machine with Windows 7 64bit, I have run driver harvest to upload the found drivers, I have downloaded and manually added and recached the needed drivers, but it simply will not see the kbox to upload or download images.  I am running kbox version 3.4 (yes I know it is old.....long story).

This site lists how to correct it with bootable media, but I have no idea how to change the boot image on the kbox to add these drivers.  https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkCentre-A-E-M-S-Series/M700-boot-image-keyboard-mouse-failure/td-p/3344273

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I love this kbox and I'd hate to have to find something else to image that is less intuitive.

I am still pretty new my self and we use the m700 with windows 7 64 bit. I apologize if my lingo is not spot on.

I ended up having to update to the windows 10 kbe for my winpe, this had the correct network and storage drivers all ready. Nothing I got from Lenovo helped me boot into the box. use the latest and greatest you can.

I also had to make some changes in the bios/ uefi.
Under Exit>change OS Optimized Defaults to Disable and run Load Optimal Defaults.
and then Go to the “Startup” tab and change the boot priortiy to UEFI first.

Hope this helps.

  • Trying to build a windows 10 image now. Dell has made it particularly difficult to download required utilities to make my appliance work with an expired support contract :) I believe you are completely correct however.
    • Dell no longer owns Kace
      • Ok.....Dell made it difficult and Quest isn't making it any easier. I'm sure whoever buys Kace next won't be any different.
