Recently purchased a laptop to find the OEM had changed the hardare slightly since previous unit and was no longer compatible. The Lenovo's manufacturer part no. is 0578NJU, but a link to the model for specs can be found here http://www.cdw.ca/shop/products/Lenovo-ThinkPad-Edge-14in-0578-Core-i5-480M-2.66-GHz-14in-TFT/2285228.aspx Thanks in advance for any help.

If you have apps that runs only on XP, then you can run tem in virtual XP mode. The computer has windows 7 home premium 64bit. You can upgrade to Windows 7 Professional 64bit and create a virtual XP. Just make sure hat before doing anything, first create recovery discs. If you reformat the drive and install XP, the recovery partition with Win7 is deleted. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
