what to install on a ThinkPad 13 edge and windows xp?

hello,

 

i am frustrating currently. i bought an edge 13 without OS and i installed windows xp sp3 via usb stick (SATA set to Compatibility in BIOS).

 

That went fine but after that i dont know absolutely what drivers to install for chipset etc. cause the laptop has no drivers with it.

 

I know there are drivers sites on ibm.com and on lenovo site, but first of all, if i filter to edge 13 and windows xp, i also see many windows 7 drivers and other edge laptops...

 

and then, i think its very confusing to find a general chipset driver for example. In the past you had a mainboard driver cd and you install just everythin and updating whatever you want after.

 

i installed the thinkpad system update where i got many drivers installed, but e.g. still i hadnt graphics drivers, i tried so many from sites and one general AMD Graphic driver finally brought me the correct resolition for example.

 

Now, everythin is running in general but i think it was not the best way to install and i dont know what still is missing etc... i didnt find chipset driver in general and i dont know how to proove if i have everyhthing whats important etc.

 

if i am using everest tool to see system information i see at cpu "unknown" but underneath at multi cpu is see the amd processor.

 

Can anybody tell me exactly what drivers i have to install with that thinkpad and windows xp? or is windows xp not supported for it?

 

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

 

What is 7 character product number of your Edge 13? It looks like 2668-KHU and can be looked up from the sticker on the back.

Or you can use System Update 3.14:

It can install everything you need and nothing you don't want. Smiley Happy
