    This is the procedure for doing a clean install of Windows 7 on the T902. The aim of this is to cut out all the crapware that would otherwise be present when restoring from Fujitsu's recovery image.

    If you want to jump directly to the driver installation order, go to step 9.

    1. Get a USB drive or make a folder on a partition you won't overwrite to hold the following files.

    2. Obtain an ISO of Windows 7 64-bit with Service Pack 1 already integrated.
    - Links here: (Grab the edition you want listed under "SP1 Media Refresh".)
    - Burn a DVD from the above image.

    3. If you want to use Fujitsu's pre-activated Windows license:
    - Download the license file here:
    - Extract the file FUJ-82D1945C.XRM-MS and put it on the USB drive
    - Find the appropriate OEM product key from here and write it down: (The Win 7 Pro key begins with PT9YK.)

    Otherwise, copy down the product key from the sticker on the underside of your machine.

    4. Download all of the most recent drivers from Fujitsu's website:

    If you have a download manager like wget, simply feed this list into it (last updated 2-Jun-2013):
    Unzip all the files using 7-zip. Fastest way to do this (if they're all in the same directory) is to open a command prompt in their directory and type:
    for %i in (*.7z) do 7z x %i
    5. Download the original installation instructions for reference; my modified instructions below are based on it: T902_Windows 7 64-bit_EN.rtf

    6. Optional: To save the hassle of installing Windows and your programs all over again, download and burn a disk imaging software onto DVD. I like Clonezilla.

    Windows installation
    7. Insert the DVD into the T902 and boot it up. When the screen comes up, click "Install now". Then, choose the "Custom (advanced)" installation.

    8. In the drive list, click "Drive options (advanced)" to open up additional options. On a typical T902, there are 4 partitions:
    - Recovery or WinRE (~20 GB) -- contains Fujitsu's recovery image
    - System Reserved (~200 MB) -- contains the Windows boot manager; partition should also be marked "System" (bootable)
    - C (~50% of drive size) -- Windows and programs are installed here
    - D (~50% of drive size) -- Data partition that doesn't get wiped during Fujitsu's system recovery
    You will want to install to the "C" partition. If you want to erase it first, highlight it and click "Format". Then hit "Next" and Windows will install and reboot your machine.

    Driver installation
    9. Insert the USB drive or go to the folder you made in step 1. Then, follow this installation order and procedure.

    Recommendation: Whenever the installer asks for you to reboot, do so. While it's possible to stack several installations and reboot after all of them are done, some installers may conflict with a pending file operation and may not install properly. So, just reboot when asked, even though it takes more time.

    Camera Driver
    - Run FPC48-0164-01_Camera_3.3.9.04G_27\Setup.exe

    Wireless LAN Driver (Intel)
    - To avoid installing the humongous (170 MB!) Intel wifi stack and just use the perfectly capable Windows 7 native stack instead, do this:
    - Make sure the wifi switch is on
    - Open up Device Manager
    - Find an unknown device named "Network Controller" -- Update drivers -- Specify directory -- FPC48-0056-01_WLAN_Intel_15.1.0.18_34\drivers

    Wireless LAN Driver (Atheros)
    - Note: I do not have a machine with this configuration, but the normal installer is: FPC48-0109-01_WLAN_Athrs_9.2.0.480_Win7_64_21\WLanSet.exe

    Bluetooth Software
    - To avoid installing the severely bloated WIDCOMM Bluetooth stack and use Windows 7's native capability, do this:
    - Open Device Manager
    - Find an unknown device named "BCM20702A0" -- Update drivers -- Specify directory -- FPC48-0170-01_Bluetooth_6.5.1.2700_43\win64

    Wireless WAN Device Driver (MC8355)
    - Note: I do not have a machine with this configuration, but the normal installer is: FPC48-0054-01_WWAN_3306_66\FujitsuGobi3kSetup.exe

    Essential applications:
    Fujitsu System Extension Utility
    - Run FPC48-0030-01_SysExt_3.4.4.0_30\setup.exe

    And that's it! All other applications are optional, though I also recommend:

    Fujitsu Hotkey Utility (for brightness/volume OSD)
    - Run FPC48-0026-01_Hotkey_3.70.0.0_47\setup.exe

    Fujitsu Battery Utility (for limiting the charge capacity and extending battery longevity)
    - Run FPC48-0173-01_BatteryUtl_3.01.16.008_49\setup.exe

    Additional notes:
    - Auto Rotation Utility -- I really don't like this utility. It's too unpredictable. To rotate the screen manually, I went into the Intel Graphics driver properties and assigned the rotation hotkeys there. For example, my 0, 90, 180, and 270 degree rotations have been given the hotkeys Ctrl+Alt+F9, Ctrl+Alt+F10, Ctrl+Alt+F11, and Ctrl+Alt+F12, respectively.
    - Fujitsu Mobility Center Extension -- This adds the extra panels to the Mobility Center.
    - Fujitsu System Manager -- This is that clunky sidebar app with all the shortcuts. Did I mention clunky? It's the thing that locks your DVD drive tray when in tablet mode.
    - Security Panel Application (Supervisor) & Security Panel Application (User) -- For the hardware buttons on the screen.

    Finishing up
    10. Activating Windows offline (optional, only if you followed step 3 above)
    - Open up a command prompt with administrative privileges, go to the folder where you saved the license key and type:
    slmgr -ilc FUJ-82D1945C.XRM-MS
    - Then wait until the message pops up. Then, find the product key you've written down and type:
    slmgr -ipk PT9YK-...(product key goes here)...
    - Then wait until a message pops up. Windows is now activated.

    11. At this point, it may be a good idea to save an image of the partition just in case things later down the line botch up Windows and you don't want to go through the hassle of reinstalling again. Fire up Clonezilla and let it do its thing. (For what it's worth, Clonezilla has literally saved me from at least 10 reinstalls while I was doing sleuth work on the Wacom cursor jump bug.)

    12. If you want to reduce resource usage even further, use a utility like Sysinternals' Autoruns and disable these startup items:
    - FJ Camera
    - USB3 Monitor
    - Authentech Swipe Navigation

    You sir are a time saver. I don't plan on using the Windows 8 that the T902 came with and will be doing a fresh install to W7 64bit anyways. This will help :)

    Hey guys, I've been a lurker for quite awhile now and finally got my hands on a T902 refurb. It came with Win 8 but I decided to put Win 7 64-bit back on the machine after I put an SSD in. Things have been working quite well thanks to the post above from jan_c. My only question at the moment is on getting the tablet/buttons on the display working. I just installed the Fujitsu Button Device driver and the driver version is 4.2.827.2009 (under Device Manager in the HID area).

    I tried stoneseeker's advice and went to Tablet PC Settings in the control panel but I don't seem to have any options available for programming the A and B buttons.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)
