Recently I bought the T61p Thinkpad along with the preinstalled Vista Ultimate. I'm most satisfied about the system and its performance. However due to heavy(read crappy) preinstalled software the performance is wors than my other almost 8 years old laptop. Therefor I want to do a clean installation of the system software. My question is, what do I need when it comes to my OS when I decide to choose one partition and do a full format of my hd. I have read several online tutorials on this issue but there's no info on what you need for this other than "a Vista CD" Does this mean I have to buy a new 'retail Vista Windows' or an 'OEM Vista Windows'(from Lenovo or any other shop?) or can I use the discs that came with the system listed beneath? And do I need to make a copy of all preinstalled progams and drivers or are they on the 8 discs?
What do I have already: Along with the Thinkpad there came 8 discs:
- 'Rescue and Recovery CD'
- 'Supplemental Product Recovery CD for type 6480,.....,.....etc.'
- '6x 'Product Recovery CD for ThinkPad T61,R61 Type 6480,.....,......etc'
Furthermore I've read something on this forum about the Intel turbomem and its NV cache??? Is this something to take in consideration when doing a clean install?
Thanks in advance!
