Hi all, I was wondering if there were any guides on how to upgrade into Windows XP Pro SP2 from DOS. My T500 has DOS as its Operating System. Anyone know the steps on going about this ? Also, where can I download the drivers for the T500 system ? I could not find it on the Lenovo Support Website.

if you have a copy of the XP pro cd go into bios and set the boot order to have built in dvd drive as the first boot device, then the installation cd will take you into installation procedure, you are however not eligible to use the Lenovo OEM XP discs.
Fill in the detail, most of the drivers should be available.

Usually the Dell Xp Pro disc are not Microsoft generic installation disc, it doesn't install on any machine other than dell usually. But some Dell have a single disc XP pro, if you got that then you can use it, but need to activate through Microsoft.

It might install but you will have trouble activating it and it will definitely not be legal.
Please get a legal copy of XP to install.
Edit: here is the driver link:
