I have searched Forum, Database and did my googling ... to no avail...still confused :-/
The used X61 tablet is completely clean and I need to install an OS on it, prefereably Windows 7.
Can somebody give me a hint as to how to install Windows 7 most easily ...
Do I need to go grab some USB DVD Drive ?
(remember Newbie ;-): Will "Lenovo Support - Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox for Windows 7 (64-bit) and Vista (64-bit) - Desktops Notebooks WorkStations_files" help me with the drivers ... or do I need to download them 1 by 1 from the supportpage.
Sry if the above turns out to be too simple for you folks ... but I always wanted a tablet and a thinkpad ... hope my dream starts working soon - THANKS !
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can install Windows 7 from a usb drive. Have a look there : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dd535816.aspx
After installing windows install System Update : http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-73695
It will download automatically all the drivers you need.

...Don't you love it when quality information flow's freely around the globe ;-)
This must rank high on top of " installations done while asleep..."
The X61 is a gem...
I owe you a beer or two mate
- which unfortunately cannot be sent via TCP/IP :-(
...and I love your tagline too
