I have installed Win7 on my T42p (FireGL video) 2 GHz 2 GB RAM, everything is working perfectly.
I have an SSD in it, and performance is great. way better than XP, and way more usable as well.
I have no problem hibernating or suspending, wifi is rock stable (2200BG) (using windows wifi manager, not the lenovo one I never could understand)
In relation to the above post, please share with us:
1) What version of Windows 7 did you install on your T42p? [Home, Professional, Ultimate?]
2) What SSD (what manufacturer and the specific model, and especially: Is it a SATA or PATA/IDE SSD
?) do you use?
3) Do you use the SSD in the main T42p harddisk bay, or do you use the SSD in the UltraBay?
The reason for asking about details of the above is that I myself is very interested in using a 1.8" SATA SSD in internal main HDD bay in my T42p, through using the 1.8"-SATA-to_2.5"-PATA (eBay) adapter, as discussed in the threads 1.8" SATA to 2.5" IDE converter?
and T42 SSD Conversion Success (1.8" SATA drive + bridge board)
. This solution is however a bit unstable (as e.g. discussed in this post
so I am therefore highly
interested to hear about any T42/p users who have succesfully installed a fast SATA SSD in their internal, main HDD bay.
Thanks in advance for sharing this highly interesting information!
