Lenovo k200, model no. 57068310, S/N MB 34956 VISTA HOME PREMIUM was converted to WINDOW XP, and now i am finding it hard to install the correct drivers that the mother board supports. kindly help me.


Hi zubekith,

I see that you downgraded from Vista to XP and now you are having issues with installing your drivers.

To be able to get the correct drivers for your system click on the link below this will bring you to a lenovo page for the k200 desktop drivers, on the drivers list thereare 2 types of drviers for Vista and for Windows XP make sure that you download the drivers for XP to avoid any conflict with the installation of your drivers.

I hope that the link will be helful with your concern, Have a nice day.

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

How to format a lenovo laptop


If you have the OEM Lenovo XP disc are you have to do is insert and follow the instruction. If you are using off the shelf software, then switch the BIOS SATA to compatibility mode, and boot from your CD drive with the disc in it, and format the harddrive followed by installing the software.( like Windows XP or the Vista)

Whenever you are using the basic installation CD for windows XP, it seems like it does not have the driver for your hard drive on this CD. if you go to:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67897.html

there is a walk through on how to do so and the driver to download. If this laptop does not have a USB floppy drive, you can also download all the drivers and use a program called Nlite that makes unattended installation's which you can copy the installation CD to your hard drive, put your windows key into the installation where you dont have to type it in, and put all drivers you need into the CD so that when it gets done installing you dont have any issues with no hard drive showing up, or have to install any drivers except for printers or scanners if you copied them all.

Windows Vista Bootup problems


Did you (sorry for the underline....not sure how it got here) call Microsoft to have them give you another product key? This is the new procedure now. If you do a reinstall with your Windows Operating System, you have to call in to receive a new product key. This should fix it.

Good luck!
