Lenovo Miix 510-12ISK 80U1 - I also tried asking Lenovo for them but
that didn't really go anywhere; but of course I'm just contacting their
usual support line and explaining what I'm after, so I didn't really
expect it to.

Yep, seen - no problem. I will look at doing it via the method he suggests.
