Recently purchased a L500d and unfortunately it came with Windoze 7.
I desperately want to rid myself of this abysmal piece of Bloatware and install XP. XP won't install because of the lack of SATA drivers on the install disk and the badly written BIOS that requires these drivers to write anything to the disk.
Has anyone successfully installed XP on one of these machines and if so, how?
In addition to being incredibly slow, Windoze 7 has now locked itself into a Scandinavian Keyboard.
I am trying to install to a new, clean drive. Just for the heck of it, I tried installing Ubuntu Linux on this drive and it worked flawlessly.
