In other words, whatever OS you use the maximum addressable RAM is 2GB.

Re: Windows 7 on T43 - Links and Info!

Hello, thanks for that information! SoundMAX driver works correctly, however the sound output is going only to internal speakers. When I try to connect external speakers directly to jack, or jack on docking station (ThinkPad Dock), just hear silence. Any idea?
Thanks.

According to ThinkWiki.org, this drive should work out of the box, but there is note, that infamous 2010-error comes up during bootup. Why is this drive included into out of the box drives when error 2010 persist?...
