Sorry, no commercial sellers allowed here without asking Bill
I cannot pay much (I'm seeing $100 on ebay).
Would be shipping to Canada.
If you have a copy you're not using or interested in selling, reply here or pm.
Well, if it is cheaper, then okay, I am tired of wondering what to do if my XP gets 'corrupted.'

I have Dell OEM XP Sp1 & sp2 CDs. I recently downloaded a Dell OEM XP SP3 from torrent.xene wrote:If you don't mind a Dell CD, I've got a bunch. Works just fine installing on a Thinkpad - I do it all the time.
Are you saying Dell OEM can be installed / activated on TP

W510 4319-2PU: 15.6"FHD/i7-720QM/4G/Win7Pro64 (for dad)

I understand that it wouldn't be proper to use a Dell or other system proprietor OEM disk, Harry, but please comment on the belief widely held by many posters on multiple threads at this site, that using a generic/system builder OEM disk in conjunction with the COA is a legitimate way to install Windows on a ThinkPad, as long as it is the same version as was originally supplied. Before I posted, I did a search and many respected members here (well, respected by me, anyway ), including Mr. Bolton, have stated this belief. It seems to satisfy Microsoft. Does it not satisfy IBM/Lenovo? OP, please forgive the thread hijack.Harryc wrote:...the only recognized method for using the COA on the bottom of the Thinkpad is to install Lenovo's recovery images.
