Thanks for the add guys so this is my first thinkpad and honestly I don’t know much about computers at all anyway it’s a sl500 (was given to me) I got a charger it comes on but acts like no os. My cousin got me a copy of windows on his iPod and I can’t figure out how to get the laptop to boot up so I can install the copy. Can anyone help?

If you did everything correctly, and the ipod acts like a USB device, just press f12 on boot and your computer will show you the list of boot devices. I've personally never used an ipod to do that so I'm not sure if Apple will end up screwing you over, but f12 is the way to find your ipod to install windows.

I got into bios and have it trying to boot from usb now

so now I’m just waiting for it to boot up it’s kinda slow lol

an SSD would work wonders. Any would be an upgrade but if you want the bulletproof choice, the Samsung evo line are very good. 850,860,870 are all great for older think pads.

right now I just gotta get windows on it lol

I have a older game I wanna play
