Downgrade win7 from 64bit to 32 bit.

Hi,

Just purchased a T520 with Win7 64 bit. I am anticipating problems with this as we use quite a lot of engineering software (often old) and would be better if we had a 32bit version. Can I get a set of disks from Lenovo for this?

I believe they will sell you some after they verify what came with the serial number you have.

You shouldn't have any problems, but if you do you can simply install the free XP Mode (32bit XP Pro) virtual machine and run the software in that.
