X200 Upgrade to XP - Need Application CDs

2008-10-14, 22:30 PM
I bought five X200s with Vista Basic (because it was cheaper).  My company has licenses for XP and I want to "upgrade" these to XP.  I made the set of Product Recovery CDs before I loaded XP to the laptop.  Now that I have the base XP image on the laptop, I want to load the drivers & apps, but the Recovery CDs are for Vista and they don't work.  How do I get the apps loaded onto the XP laptop?

welcome to the forum.

 

you can download thinkvantage system update and use it to find and load any drivers and lenovo utilities that you may be missing.

The WIN DVD link you provided is only an upgrade for existing installations.  Where can I download the program?
