Re: Keyboard

IBM/Lenovo has yet to see fit to build my dream keyboard. I want a wireless (RF or Bluetooth) that has the Trackpoint! I'd would so buy that in a heartbeat for my desktop! :D You can sign me up for one as well. I find it disappointing and very hard to believe they do not already produce a wireless/...

Happy to report I finally received the enclosure I ordered several weeks ago. After loading it up with a 40gb hard drive and taking it for a spin, I was so impressed with the unit, I ordered two more. If this is not a genuine IBM product, it's close enough for me. I really could'nt tell the differen...

Received my T60p CTO about a month ago and so far I am very unhappy wiith this purchase. I plan on contacting Lenovo tomorrow and making them fully aware of the situation. Guess I will find out first hand how good the tech support and warranty is.

I also noticed the speakers in my X31 seem to be better than those in my T60. The T60 internal speakers seem smaller and less clear than those in either of my X31 thinkpads.

I am unsure whether you need to unhide the hard drive before cloning but I do remember when attempting to clone drives using Ghost, the tech at my office told me it was. It may be totally unneccessary but to play it safe, I used the instructions I found in the following thread to hide and unhide the...

Hi Boon,

What version of True Image were you using. I know with version 10 it asks if you want partitions cloned too. I think you also have to unhide the hidden partition before you can clone it. Once cloned you can then set it back to hidden.
