Re: Please help, SSD in ultrabay wont work, also my T43p doesnt boot USB drive

DONE IT
data transferred Win 7 from the HDD to the SSD, and than opened win 7 from the SSD, works perfect

next step I am attempting right now is to recover the win XP on the HDD from a recovery point I created with norton ghost
wish me luck

YMMV. why is that?, thats how I did some years ago with my W530, I barely had any money on hand, the new W540 was just out, and we all discovered what a scam it was with that clickable pad, so with all I had o...
