Re: T21 recovery (win98) problems

A 20-60GB HDD is is a better choice. You can back up your now working install and restore it to a larger HDD when you get the chance.

Re: IBM Thinkpad 760 Promotional Images

These are nice pics. Now I realize why there were "D" models. I still have my old 760LD. From the pics I can see that if you didn't get a model with a "D" after the 760x then there was NO WAY you could fit the CD / DVD tray in it because there was no notch at the top of the front of the ultrabay fro...

I have at least 1 or 2 spare HDD covers. As far as the other parts go, They are on the T1s or T22s in my collection. So you just have the HDD cover and not the lid? I'm not sure what you mean.

Acronis true image backup and restore is a better option. And you would have the backup image in case you need it again sometime in the future.

Re: WTB: thinkpad ranging from 755 to t20

T20, T21 or T22 would be your best bets. T21 & T22 are almost identical except for the processor and I prefer either of them (and I have both, bought new, way back) over the T20. They will take T30 batteries too (but not the other way around!). You can get them with Win98 SE and either make a DOS pa...

Windows will re-arrange the drive letters, especially if one of the HDDs is in the ultrabay of the Advanced dock. It treats the ultrabay as a USB device and will bump a drive in there to a higher letter. With all the drives I use, (HDs in the ThinkPad Ultrabey, and in the Adv Dock ultrabay, USB conn...

Re: More than two screens on intel graphics?

Well, W7 was never that great with multiple screens. You can get 3 but usually one has to be the ThinkPad's display. It's easier with an advanced dock (T61 / T500 era) or the newer dock for the T410 / T510 / W510 and later models.
