    Did this as soon as tp 5 came out. Fingerprint reader doesnt work and two wireless adapters also dont work. There are about 6 devices in device manager that will not find drivers. I use it everyday and hopefully windows update will eventually install these other drivers but for now wireless network adapters are not functional. I did try to install the drivers myself but there are some problems with several devices on my server still.
