Re: X60s (1702-3WU) Recovery media

If nobody else comes forward, I have XP Pro recovery media for the X61. Aside from a few missing drivers I'd imagine it should work reasonably well.

Re: Thinkpad T23 & T30 IBM Product Recovery CDROM or ISO

I also have XP and 2K for the T23, and I have XP for the T30 - if you're interested in any I will host ISOs for you. I do not have 2K for the T30, but if anyone wants to share it with me too so I can file it with the rest of my TP restore archives, I'd be grateful. :)

Re: LF: UXGA mod for t60 14.1

Yeah, they sent that to me too. They've got good feedback and I know the Chinese new year is right about now, so I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt, for the 2-3 weeks they're asking for anyway. Well within the "file a claim" window if it does turn out to be a hoax.

Re: Fundamental differences between T420 and T430?

Aside from [slightly] higher clock speeds, the Ivy Bridge CPUs aren't much faster clock-for-clock than Sandy Bridge CPUs. They aren't particularly more power-efficient, or heat-efficient, either. Most benchmarks show 3-5% improvement over Sandy Bridge. There is definitely an improvement, but it's no...

Re: Windows 7 on T25 - any "real life" experiences ?

I may be out of my mind... but I think I'm actually going to give it a shot. If I can get the installer to recognize the HDD then I'll consider it a "success" - but I don't have any intentions to wipe my T25 to see about other Win7 drivers [yet]. I'll report back after a while.

I'm not sure why you would need to flash the Middleton BIOS to run 64 bit Linux. In any case, flashing Middleton's BIOS won't do anything to your hard disk or existing OS/partitions.

Re: need X60 Recovery cd-please !

I am not sure. If I had to guess it's probably SP2 since the X61 was released about a year before SP3 was published. The PE image on disc 1 is dated 2009 but the software contents on the other discs are all dated 2006 or 2007, so it seems consistent that it'd be SP2.
