Newbie Help X61 with clean HD ...suggestions for installing OS

2011-02-25, 22:54 PM

Hi Experts

 

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! See the solution

Hello mate,

 

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.

Hi Mate

 

...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
