Need to upgrade from windows 98 to windows xp on ibm 760e thinkpad


Before you begin, be sure to go to Lenova Website and download the appropriate XP software & drivers and burn them to a CD or flash drive. You will need them after the install is completed. After that is completed, you are ready to install. Insert the XP Install disk and choose INSTALL XP and on the next screens drop down menu, choose UPGRADE. Follow the instructions. After it is completed, use the CD or Flash Drive to install the proper system software & drivers.. GREAT LUCK!! Please rate me, k? Thank You Lucky4lynn2

Flash drive isn't being recognized need to back up


Hello,

Regarding on your problem, in windows xp and up version of windows operating system, plug and play device is easy and no need to install its drivers manually cause the computer will automatically install its drivers. But in the case of Windows 98 you have to install your USB Driver manually in order to be recognize by the system. So my recommendation please insert the CD driver or load the driver of your USB and run the setup.exe to install the USB Driver.

Thanks

Usually XP will work well on older systems, even ones that came with 98. The biggest thing will be if XP has drivers for the older devices such as the modem. Usually XP does a good job.

Formatting IBM Thinkpad 600E


I know you can't boot from the Windows 98 CD, and probably not from Windows 2000 either. It is possible to turn the the Windows 98 bootable floppy into a bootable CD, but I think you would be much better of trying to install Linux.

ThinkPad A21m won't boot into Windows


Did the laptop you got come at least with a windows XP cd? If so boot the laptop off of that and try to install Windows XP and see if it goes thru. Just make sure during the installation you tell it to delete the partitions first and then let it go thru that way you know for sure the hard drive is clean at that point.

Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared


Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

Hard Drive


When you boot from your OS CD it will run through Set Up and give you the option to format the harddrive.
Just select NTFS for windows 2000 or XP, or FAT32 for Windows 98/ME.
