You can go about this 2 ways.
First, if you have, or can get your hands on a copy of Windows xp; Load the windows system, then go to the IBM support site and download your drivers. Then you will be ready to go.
Secondly, call IBM support and get a set of recovery cds. You will have to have the information from the stickers that are on the bottom of the pc. I don't remember the exact cost, but as I remember it's about $54-55. Usually takes a couple of days to receive them.
Either way that you do it, you're going to wrap up a couple of hours.

You may have installed the wrong driver version. Some Thinkpads may have different manufacturers of the same type of devices installed in the laptops, therefore you need to install them one at a time until you find one that works. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link :- http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the variour drivers, they will then unzip and expand into a folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder.

When you purchase Windows 7 from Microsoft Store, you have the option to download an ISO file or compressed files.
The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool allows you to create a copy of your Windows 7 ISO file on a USB flash drive or a DVD.
To create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive, download the ISO file and then run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool.
Once this is done, you can install Windows 7 directly from the USB flash drive or DVD.
Hope it helps
