Hi shivendra,

Although I m not a guru for giving suggestion on the lenovo products problem solving platform but what I want to share with you is that I have installed windows server 2003 and using very effectively. First download all the windows XP drivers from the lenovo site which is provided for your model. and when ready then follow some instructions :

1. update BIOS according to instruction provided. it is necessary to update BIOS because if u will not update then you will not be able to adjust fn + up and down keys to adjust system brightness..so my advice is to first update BIOS.
2. go to BIOS - change AHCI to compatibility mode
3. install windows 2003 server
4. install all the drivers of windows XP in the same order as windows vista.
5. you will be able to install all the drivers without any problem except graphics driver. so to install graphics driver follow certain things.. run the graphics driver that you have downloaded - by default it will be extracted in c:\drivers  folder...then go to device manager by either through typing at run prompt the command: devmgmt.msc or through right clicking my computer-hardware-device manager - go to display adaptors - right click the default adapter - select update driver - select the driver location -select the extracted graphics folder such as c:\drivers\graphics driver\graphics--and click install...

hopefully all the drivers will be installed without any problem...

have a good luck...
