Windows 2008 R2 on W701

2010-12-02, 3:23 AM

Hey guys,

I just bought a new W701 Thinkpad.  I'm using it as a mobile workstation so I'm trying to install WIn2k8 R2 and been running into several problems with drivers (ex: it won't recognize the Intel Wireless 6250 Adapter ).

 

Has anyone else gone through this? Is there a guide somewhere

Solved! See the solution
