So what are my options if I don't want to pay for recovery CD's from lenovo? I mean I just want the OEM windows, i have a product key on the back of my laptop ...
Does anyone have a suggetion/link for the windows XP OEM ISO?
You can also go to some Thinkpad/IBM/Lenovo shop and have them do restore and charge you 1h (35-100 EUR in Slovenia)
I haven't tried on Thinkpads, some Austrian guy on some forum did: Get XP OEM CD and use the key on the back of the laptop. I installed some Toshibas like that and it activated and validated.
The problem might be language. Depending on what key your Thinkpad has you might need German OEM CD. Or if you want German XP you need German restore CDs. For some (mostly Central and Eastern Europe) languages you can install language pack on top of English XP.
