You know, i don't know how to to do this. It's a bit embarrassing because i have been using computers for more than 17 years now.

Long story short, i stopped by a computer store in Calais and the people there let me connect my ssd to a computer to copy my files onto the ssd.

Put back the ssd in the machine and installed the wifi driver, after which it was easy.

Thanks for the support. Moral of the story here, check hardware compatibility before installing an OS and make sure you have the necessary drivers handy if the OS itself doesn't have them.

Normally the T460 comes with W10 so installing an older OS comes with typical driver incompatibility issues. I do what I can until i feel comfortable enough to give W11 another go.
