ThinkPad T40 Windows 10 [SOLVED]

#1 Post by luca9903 » Sat Apr 30, 2016 4:59 am

Hi Everybody,

I have upgraded my TP T40 to Pentium M 725. When i try installing Windows 10 it says it has not PAE, and I Know. But why if i try it on my TP X41 with the same CPU the installation starts? Is there a way to install it on TP T40?

Thank you in advance, waiting your answers.

It's not the same CPU. Not the same chipset to begin with.
Is there a way to install it on TP T40?
AFAIK, no.

Thanks. So I can only change the t40 motherboard with a r52 one to be able to install it (?).

R52 or T43/p but these will also call for different RAM and CPU.

Just in case, just share the information.
On a laptop without the support of the NX bit, you can put a modern Windows.
installation instructions are easy to find in Google.
if short, you need to use the NX patch

T40 works very well under Windows 8.1
But it's worth remembering that the patch does not work on the latest builds of Windows.
