Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook ?

I have a thinkpad t20 and a 570e, both with

\015 I have a thinkpad t20 and a thinkpad 570e, both with windows 2000. Can I install XP Pro and still keep the ibm stuff on them? I do have an IBM recovery disc, but I don't know if that will matter after installing XP\015

Answers :

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)
