PREVIOUSLY USED WINDOWS XP -NEW MOTHERBOARD IN MY COMPUTER- have INSTALLED WINDOWS 7- MY GENIUS COLORPAGE HR 3200 SCANNER NEEDS A COMPATIBLE DRIVER. CANNOT FIND FOR WIN 7


This is unfortunately a common issue with "older" devices with Windows 7 not supporting a compatible device driver:. Your best chance is to install Windows XP in a Virtual Machine under windows 7: the free ''VirtualBox'' virtual machine is what I personnaly use for my incompatible devices.
Hope it helps.

Microsoft does not recomend yo to upgrade fron windows XP to Windows 7. Fresh installation of Windows 7 on an XP machine is recommended.

Backup your User file, do a windows 7 readiness, and insert the windows 7 DVD into you systems fro a fresh installation.

However, there are third party application like PCMover software that could help you to upgrade from Windows 7

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

How can i load awindows xp on ibm 600e


I have done this many times.
To install XP on an IBM 600E , you needd to upgrade the RAM at least to 256MB.
Then use a Windows install disk to install XP.
After installing Windows you will have to update drivers from IBM website here: Lenovo Support & downloads - Drivers and software - ThinkPad 600 ...
There is no driver for 600E video adapter on XP, video performances will be limited.
