Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

If you use an oem windows install disc, you can use your existing key, I've done it often.

Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

Does that apply to:
1) any OEM Windows XP CD;
2) only to Lenovo/IBM Windows XP CDs;
3) only to T43 recovery CDs?

Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

it must be the same version of windows and cannot be a retail or upgrade disc, otherwise any oem should work.

Recovery media doesn't require a serial number to work.

Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

to throw another curv eball in

 

if you use a ssd, check to see if ti has garbage colection built into the firmware fo rntfs file system

there are quite a few for it and it is essentially a lesser version of trim - allowing you to run xp wihtout any worries

Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

Hello,

 

The Ultrabay connector in the T43 series is PATA.  Even if you have a tray with a SATA connector on it, there is a bridgeboard inside of it that converts the SATA interface to a PATA interface. 

 

There was a third-party that modified T43 motherboards to remove the PATA connector for the internal disk drive and replace it with a SATA connector, but it seems they no longer offer that service.

 

Regards,

 

Aryeh Goretsky

Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

As Goretsky points out Dom at "the board room" no longer does the SATA mods on these machines but I believe others still do them and it's the only real way to get sata1 performance in one of these units. Alternately you can get an IDE (pata) SSD drive, they aren't common or cheap, but they will plug direct into your drive bay, but still won't give you the SATA1 speed.

 

Ironically the T43 series was designed to use SATA, but due to lack of availability of sata drives at the time they converted them to use pata by installing a bridge chip. If you remove that chip, replace the connector and solder a couple wires you can convert it to SATA. There are some instructions posted online and a few people who do the mods for a reasonable fee. I believe Dom stopped doing them because he exhausted his inventory of the needed materials and due to lack of interest he didn't bother to reorder, but over the years he's done countless numbers of them with the last being a good friend of mine.

 

If you are interested in doing the mod yourself I can try to find you some instructions
