I don't know if this helps because I have no idea how much new lappies or Win7 discs cost, but HP is now offering a $150 discount on new lap or desktops loaded with Win7.

Thanks for the info, KurtBleach.

 

The person who owns this laptop is a senior citizen that cannot afford to buy a Windows XP CD, much less an HP computer.

 

@Jacee,

 

Great link!! Thanks!!

 

Was looking for something like that last night, but I wasn't with it, and gave up. Have had one heck of a cold for at least a week, and the frigid temperatures here are not helping. Keep getting it back instead of getting rid of it.

 

Downloading the CD for XP might do the trick, I hope!!

Get well and let me know if the XP Cd works. Lenovo's info --> The backup solution stores it's image in a virtual encrypted partition on C:

Mine is called Q:drive

Thanks, Jacee!

 

What is installed is an XP picked up from the street (so to speak). There is nothing "Lenovo" in the machine...

She also has no Product Key, and the COA was ripped off the back. There is no sticker there.

 

Great machine, uh??
