2009-06-21, 4:17 AM

hello m8's.

i have a x60 tablet that came loaded with XP pro tablet..well like a jakass i upgaded or should i say downgraded to vista ultimate.well i hate it as it consumes memory, drags and just suks.doesnt seem to support all of my tablet features.

well wen i did the upgrade i fell asleep and on the reboot of laptop i awoke and hit the wrong partiton.. now i have vista on whole hdd. no service partion or anything.

 

when i load my xp cd it loads all the way until i hit the partion and install.says no hdd found..was wondering how to get past this. i have no floppy drive or externall hdd as well.i do have a sandisk 2 gig memory stick  and think i read somewere thats possible.

 

was wondering the easies way around this. i do have the thinkpad ultra base or whatever its called.the thing that has the cd and bluetooth infared thing..

please help vista SUKS.

 

thanxs for ur patience.

Well, the easiest way is to use recovery cd that comes with the machine.

 

However, Vista is so good comparing to XP as far as Tablet PC functionality is concerned. As you wrote, I assumed that you haven't installed all necessary drivers. That should be it.
