Re: WTB - 'RECOVERY' X201Tablet W7 PRO 32-bit

This 'RECOVERY' went well!! Brandon was 'most helpful' Since the WTB was posted outside of the 'MARKET-PLACE' I thought I'd thank him here. If he's offered anything in 'MARKET-PLACE' or responds there to a WTB I believe you could expect a like experience!!

Thanks again Brandon!!

WTB - 'RECOVERY' X201Tablet W7 PRO 32-bit

I've purchased a X201Tablet i7 3113-C95 that was advertised as being W7 32-bit and the automotive diagnostics 'emulator' I'm wanting to use requires 32-bit W7 OS. It was delivered with 64-bit W7. Machine is cosmetically fine and I'd rather a W7 32-bit and 'Recovery' of this machine vs shopping for a...

You might have a better chance for selling it, if you replace that abominable clunkpad with a T450 touchpad+buttons!
See viewtopic.php?f=68&t=126860
That also has some W10 info.

Simply say w10 don't have the software for it and you need to look at the download section for T440 if download is available for the touchpad software if not then you need to bring it back on win 7 or 8, this is common in all laptops specially if you upgrade it from the recommended o.s some of them...

T440 W10 - Synaptics issues

I've a T440 that I've considered the sale of. I did the W10 'upgrade' when it was first offered. I thought that for the sale it would be best to offer it with a 'fresh' W10 install vs a W7 - PRO and just supply the Lenovo W7 'restore media' with the sale. I don't use an image service any longer but ...

Tell us for which car this is, someone else may have a working/better idea. It's not for a particular car - This would be for a GM Tech2WIN (emulator) use on a PC. It seems an X201 might likely be a good option. I've had a GM Tech2 for 10+ years and it needs a repair that is likely a 'few' hundred ...

Right now it's running sort of OK with a T420 set.
I guess a T440/T540/W540/W541 (or xx50) set would also do, if that exists in W7-Pro.
I have the 2 disc set for the X230 and X230T most models WIN 7 PRO 64-Bit and I also have the 3 disc set for the T440 and T440S again WIN 7 PRO 64-Bit.

Replace that crappy T440 clickpad with the touchpad with buttons from a T450. And you can get IPS FHD screens for the T440 (same as T450). For less than $100 you have a much improved T440, that is just as good as the T450/T460. And definitely much cheaper! I had considered the later touch w/buttons...
