    well about my experience with this lenovo y50-70

    i have the gtx960m version + 1tb sshd

    i bought it used so i never seen the original lenovo partition because when i bought it it comes with a clean install, but a bad one

    bios was set to legacy and i was with about 45sec to 1 min to boot to windows,

    i decided to try make a usb pen with uefi gpt windows 10 boot

    all perfect and now i can boot to windows with less than 25 seconds, partition is gpt and not mbr

    also in bios secure boot is disable, and usb boot + internet boot also disable, maybe it improoves the boot to windows get faster

    about drivers i only installed the last from realtek, for intel i have the windows update last driver ( but it´s old, what is the best driver to install? ) and for the gforce i have the last gforce xperience driver

    disk performance is not the best, but i getting used to it, i come from a fast 512ssd from my samsung series 9

    i played doom 4 and game runs nice, also play cs go and it looks nice

    i didn t install nothing from lenovo website, you guys recomend anything?

    cheers

    Thinking about doing a clean install later. I see that the D drive has drivers and such in it. Each driver has a setup.exe. Can I trust that these things are what I need to get everything going again after the clean install?

    you can read my post

    well i deleted all partitions and format them

    make clean windows instalation with last dec 2016 windows update

    i just needed to update gforce drivers

    also delete the windows hd 4600 driver and download the last one from intel. only works this way, if you first unistall windows driver

    and i also updated realted driver in realtek website

    all the rest windows update have the last drivers, same that are in lenovo website for download

    i did not install any lenovo programs, do you recomend any?

    Thanks.

    The only Lenovo program I really use is the Energy Manager. I use it to force the computer to stay at about 60% battery rather than charge more.

    I also have the Dolby Digital Plus software doing its thing for audio.

    I think my subwoofer isn't making any sound. What Realtek driver version do you guys have? My version is 6.0.1.7195.

    You should use Lenovo's driver only, otherwise the Dolby won't work and the sound without it pretty crappy.
