Lenovo Yoga 910-13IKB (80VF002JUS) hard drive driver for installing Win 10 Pro

I have a Lenovo Yoga 910-13IKB (80VF002JUS) laptop I am trying to load Windows 10 on using either a bootable USB drive or DVD.

The serial number for this laptop is PF0HEM1B.

The problem is that during the initial part of the installation the hard drive isn't recognized and I am prompted to provide a driver.

Please provide me with the URL address of where I can download this driver from.

Please check these two items.
Make sure HD mode is set to legacy mode in BIOS. make sure RAID controler is disable in BIOS.

It came with Windows 10 and does not need a separate driver.

Did you turn Secure Boot OFF in BIOS before trying to install Windows 10?
Did you replace the hard drive with a non-Lenovo drive?

Also it came with an SSD drive and does not have a hard drive.

I know that this laptop has an SSD drive.

It came with Win 10 Home OS which was upgraded to Win 10 Pro.

The OS is corrupted beyond repair and now I am trying to load Win 10 Pro. There is no backup for this laptop's operating system.

Even with secure boot disabled and with other changes made to the BIOS the hard drive hasn't been recognized during the initial part of the Windows 10 installation.

I have downloaded several hard drive, controller, and chipset drivers from the Lenovo support webpage for this laptop but those drivers haven't made the hard drive recognizable.

That is why I have posted this question and am looking for some help in finding the right drivers.

Please provide me with the URL address for downloading these drivers so I can reinstall Windows 10 Pro using the standard Windows 10 setup process.

There are no drivers for the SSD drive to start up with. There is an SSD Firmware Update tool, but Windows needs to be running.

Contact Lenovo Support for a recovery USB Key and they will send it to you. That will likely install properly.

Reset computer to factory default in BIOS
Create Bootable USB with Windows 10 you want to install
Download driver package from:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26361/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Intel-RST-RAID-Driver

Unzip it and copy all files to USB drive

Start installation and if Windows will ask for drivers point to USB drive.
During the Windows setup, I “Load driver” and choose the storage driver at the USB root folder.

Tom,

I have tried the drivers in the URL you provided but they haven't worked.

When using these drivers I get a message that says "Contact your vendor for an updated driver."

What other drivers are available for this?

You need the Lenovo Recovery USB . That is the only source I know for all the correct drivers for a fresh install

It's very strange because I've found 2 forums where people pretending they was able to install Windows 10 on Yoga with this drivers

Try to use this website to get recovery media

In addition to the above, the way I normally do it is go to https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/  enter the serial number of the unit and that should provide you with the information you need for your machine. I know my company provides support for the Lenovo products and you can call them at 888-IBM-HELP

I think the asker should contact Lenovo Support as we said much earlier here.

You are correct John, that number is just for me. :) So disregard the number that I gave in my comment.

since the drive is a PCIe model, is suspect you cannot remove it from that board; but if you can - install it on another pc and install windows 10 there - then put the drive back in this pc and boot up - it will update the drivers

After changing these two settings the hard drive now displays without me having to load a driver.
