    is it possible to install Win 7 on the Portege M400? There is Windows XP on the Notebook.

    I am German, excuse please my bad English.

    Many greetings

    Theoretically yes but question is: is this notebook model supported for Win7?
    Have you checked drivers archive?

    You can do this under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

    Fact is that many Vista drivers can be used with Win7 so you can try to install Vista drivers.

    Many thanks for your answer.
    Unfortunately, there are only drivers for Windows Vista. I will try it with these.

    I would like to know if you have installed and configured Win7 successfully.

    This will take a few more days, because I have ordered the software today. If I am ready, I send a feedback.

    Now my Win7-installation ist complet! Under using the latest vista-drivers it runs perfectly.
    Befor upgrading, I have installed the latest driver for XP-Tablet-version. Than a "Custom Install" by taking the latest raid driver for vista.
