How to Install Windows XP on a Thinkpad T20

The Thinkpad T20 is a laptop computer from IBM designed for business use. This computer comes with the Windows XP operating system and--if necessary--can be reloaded with the operating system. All you need to perform this operation is the installation disc for Windows XP and a valid product key. This product key can be found on the bottom of the computer or with the documents included with the machine (if Windows XP was pre-installed on the computer).

Windows XP CDProduct key
1 Turn on your T20 laptop computer and press the blue "ThinkVantage" button.

2 Scroll through the options and select the option to boot from your T20's CD/DVD drive.
3 Press the "Enter" key at the welcome window and press the "F8" key once you have read (and agreed to) the license terms for installing the software.
4 Select the drive on which you want to install Windows XP and press the "C" button, followed by the "Enter" button.
5 Press the "Enter" button again to start the installation process. When prompted, enter the product key for Windows XP. Once the setup finishes, you can use the computer.

Need driver for 8x dvd drive for thinkpad

When a properly inserted and working drive is connected, it is automatically discoveredand installed. Specific drivers are not necessary or available. I will assume you are not talking about a DVD viewer application?

If the OS does not discover the drive, then the drive is likely defective, or not properly connected.

Erasing operating system

Hi, the best option might be to download Norton's Partition Magic ( ($69.95) however, you can likely find previous versions for down load cheaper or free online. This will allow you to delete the partition that you have XP running on. One thing I will mention to you though, is that it is unlikely XP is causing your computer to slow down. In fact, quite the opposite. Your Vista load draws significantly more resources and memory so you might be better served to remove the Vista load. At any rate, whatever you decide. Make sure to back-up your important files prior to any deleting/re-formatting.

There are other ways to do this, but I have found NPM to be very clean and helpful in the past.

Let me know if this helps you out.

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair

Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck

Make sure your replacement hard drive is compatible in geometry (supported by your ThinkPad T20). Check and see if your BIOS setup utility has an auto-detect function.

It would be good if you knew the contents of your replacement drive. You said it might be installed, it might not. If there is nothing on the drive, the ThinkPad should report 'no operating system' or similar message, but it is possible that it might not show anything other than a blinking cursor
