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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
