Wasn't there a thread with clean install instructions on X220T?

Greetings!

 

I've haven't been back here for a while and now I can't find a thread that contained pretty detailed instructions on doing a clean install of Win7 on X220T with minimally necessary drivers for multi-touch and pen use. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

After a hair over a year the system seems slower to me but again I haven't done a clean install so there must be a lot of unneeded processes running.

 

Thank you for your help!

takosan,

Rather than clean install, try doing defrag and also remove those software which might be taking up heaps of resources causing your laptop to slow down. Also might consider doing a defrag?

Or you can try clean installation like you always wanted =)

I have a Y2P (i5) ... Feel free to ping me if you want me to test some applications with your Y2P if you have the same model. I don't mind keep doing recovery on it if needed .... =)

Thank you ExJamJus. I did a manual defrag and it didn't take long ... WIndows 7's scheduled defrag seemed to have been doing it's job every week.

Yeps, I do want to try the clean install I've always wanted to do even though I still have no time! What I'm interested in is bringing down the running process count (currently over 100) if I only install minimal Lenovo services and also as the price of SSD has fallen, move to that.
