Re: EU seems to be in danger...

What pi$$es me off is the way the US "worships" Veterans (except those of WW-II). The US fights and loses wars in foreign countries (like Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq) that are none of their business to begin with. Then those that get killed, wounded or go daft there are treated here as heroes...

Re: Windows 10 T530

kfzhu1229, yes, I agree, I initially did the free upgrade from 7 to 10 last year on my X60, when they had that annoying free upgrade message going constantly when you booted., since MS seldom gives things away I thought "why not". I think that was January or something like that. Well I had it on my ...

Windows 10 T530

Hello everyone, I have been out of circulation for a long time, but still use only thinkpads and currently own four :thumbs-UP: . I just grabbed a nice T530 from Ebay for $299, it's in great shape and does have the NVIDIA graphics. It came with Windows 7 which I do like but recently we upgraded to W...

George I love Alice in Chains :!: we used to play Man in the Box and No Excuses in one band I was in a couple years ago. Jerry Cantrell is way up there in guitarists.

here's me playing some VH, just a little bit, though.

If zealotry amongst one's supporters is a sin, no leader is innocent.

Re: SP3 trashes hard drive - and is cloning possible?

That is strange, were all the drivers up to date, cuz sp3 worked fine on my x60 before i went to win7
Are you using the same wireless hardware he is? GPRS/3G radio, this might be the sticking point. Something in SP3 won't play nice with it.

Re: SP3 trashes hard drive - and is cloning possible?

I believe that you could have problems with cloning/imaging Windows to your target machine if the OS is not an IBM-branded install. You absolutely will have trouble with it, due to the one machine at one instance rule from MS. It must be the standard IBM oem build. You might try removing the wirele...

Re: SP3 trashes hard drive - and is cloning possible?

If the the target machine is a similar machine with similar hardware and chipsets, I don't think you'll have a problem since it is simply another IBM your installing the OS on. Seems like I have done this years ago with some T42's that needed imaging.
