Has anyone installed Windows on a T43 Thinkpad? I am not sure it will handle graphics, and it shows that the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200 BG many not be supported/work. Looking for anyone who has tried Windows on older Thinkpads.
Thanks .... James

Everything will run great in W7 if you have a T43 with ATi graphics (model numbers starting in 26xx), including Aero. No issues with 2200BG (or any other card used on T43/p for that fact).
If you have a machine with Intel graphics (model numbers starting in 187x) you will not be able to run Aero, although everything else will work just fine.
I strongly suggest maxing the RAM at 2GB if you're intent on running W7. I've been doing in for quite some time on some of my T43/p units and have been extremely pleased this far.
