Re: Won't Boot From Usb or SSD with Debian, But Does Boot With HHD With Windows . . .

Just a thought....

Is your Debian installation 32-bit?

The X60-series won't boot a 64-bit installation of either Debian or Windows. :BAAAD!:

Re: ThinkPad T4x LCD cable mod

I have an R50p QXGA cable boxed up here somewhere.

If you need a full set of pics, I can do some up on Saturday and post them.

Alternatively, I could probably just sell you the cable and you could take your own pics :D

Re: Windows update not working after re-install

I've used both Versions 9.1 and 9.2.4, I think the only difference is in the addition of Office 03 & 07 and WIN 8 updates to 9.2.4... I believe 9.1 only updates Win XP, at least the version that I downloaded does XP.
