7260 hardware/driver compatibility issue?

1) Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 wi-fi driver v 17.13.2.2 dated 11/17/2014 works

2) (updated) driver v 17.13.12.1 dated 12/16/2014 gives 'cannot detect hardware' error message so no wi-fi.

3)Reason?

Ad) Lenovo Ultrabook Yoga ThinkPad win v8.1 (I won't upgrade to win 10 until this is fixed)

Thanks!

NOT for win10 - need for win v8.1 - win10 crashed my pc, seems sucky so sticking with win8 - maybe win10 driver not backwards compatible - it all works with rollback so I'm good otherwise
