Re: Windows 98 on X41?

I'm getting only a black screen after prompting
cd WIN98SE
setup /is
Can someone help with this?

UPD:
Nailed it. But in other way: Made W98 image from 560z via acronis and restored it on X41 drive. Works fine.

Re: [RESOLVED] X41 and Windows 2000

Just nostalgia on classic UI view (XP classic theme dows not have that charm of perfectness), pixelated icons and login sound. Whish to set up Windows 98/Me, but it will not work I assume.

How to identify genuine battery

I have a choice between two 44+ batteries, but I think, that one of them is not genuine Lenovo.
Can 44+ battery be produced in 2017 year?
What does Li-ion00 and Li-ion20 means?

Here are the links to the batteries photos:

Maybe there are any IPS XGA displays that's compatible with x61s?
SXGA+ can become a problem with video performance in games for me, while XGA gives a chance to play with suitable FPS. (Yeah, I know that this machine is not for games, but still)

Exchange displays between X61S and X61T

I like the colors on the tablet version, but prefer X61S, since it's lighter and thinner.
So I wonder, is there any possibility to place display from X61T into X61S?

Hi, I'm looking for T60 or T60p 14.1" with ATI graphics in very good condition.
The other option can be T61 or T61p, but only with the IBM logo on it.
Can be without HDD, ODD and battery. The cheaper - the better.
It will be shipped in Russia.
