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.

Re: T43, SSD + Win7?

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
