Help installing w10 driver to w8.1

Hi,

I can't get these 4 devices working on windows 8.1 and as a consequence the Intel graphics display adapter is not present on device manager and the same for the Touchpad:
ACPI\VEN_INT&DEV_3453
Intel(R) Serial IO GPIO Host Controller - INT3453
ACPI\INT3453\1
ACPI\INT3453\2
ACPI\INT3453\3
ACPI\INT3453\4



This is a new laptop model Lenovo 330-15IGM with default BIOS, you can see BIOS update available on Lenovo's site but I don't want to install it right now because they don't give the option to come back to the previous BIOS version after the installation as I read.
All drivers and Bios updates are here:
https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/es/en/prod ... /downloads

Direct link to the driver: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/es/en/prod ... s/DS503390

It is possible to mod the BIOS o to get the INF working for this Laptop ?

I tried modifying the w10 inf file to install it on windows 8.1 but I get a yellow mark and this message in the device > properties:
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
{Unable to Load Device Driver}
%hs device driver could not be loaded.
Error Status was 0x%x


Before the driver installation I tried modifying the inf replacing Intel.NTamd64.10.0 by this: Intel.NTamd64.6.3

this is the content of the original INF file, if it can help:

This is the .zip file I uploaded to mediafire which contains the .sys and the .inf files modded (but I posted a link before to the original driver):
https://www.mediafire.com/file/7zt5hs9b ... v.zip/file

What can I do? Windows 8.1 runs very fast on this laptop compared to w10.
Can you help me to get these devices working?

Lot of thanks
Regards!

Hello,

changing INF files will not help you since they are usually protected by a digital signature (stored in a file with .cat extension). Your change invalidates the signature, thus Windows refuse to load such a driver.

On my laptop, I managed to install a Windows 8 driver on Windows 8.1, however, I was probably in a different situation since the driver has its own installer. The trick there was to run the installer in the Windows 8 compatibility mode.
