Hello, is it possible to install Windoes XP SP3 64 bit on T420 14" Intel Core i7-2640M 2.80GHz 8 GB DDR3 RAM 320 GB HD DVD-RW Windows 7 Professional 64-bit laptop? I am looking to purchase arefurbished laptop but wanted to make sure that I can boot it with clean copy of windows xp and completely remove windows 7. I have to use windows xp for some of the machines to work. Thanks!

Lenovo shipped the T420 with Windows XP 64-bit installed, and still provides drivers for XP on its support site for the T420, so I see no reason why not.

You may run into some issues if the drive is an advanced format (4kb sector) drive.
