I just helped someone on the German Thinkpad forum getting the European IBM wallpapers (and the EMEA screensaver) off of my A31p.

If you also want them, you can get them here in full quality:

He kindly nudged me over here, because I also have an A22p and would be interested in the recovery CD's. I know I'm pretty new here, but I could trade in my XP SP3 European recovery CD's for the A31p as .iso's, if you're interested. :)

Hi
I'm coming from another thread about activating XP Pro on X60. My problem is that I have the OEM product key on the back of the machine but no recovery disc. I have reinstalled XP Pro from another disc with it's own Key ( I presume this is a retail Disc). Right now I have XP up and working and internet wifi connected. Now, today, I have 26 days to activate it. I have tried a phone call and got a run around from Microsoft. I think if I were to use an OEM version with the OEM key that I have I may bypass the activation. What do you think and can you help.

When using an appropriate OEM Windows installer, the SLIC code found in BIOS, when matched against the certificate and product key paired with the OEM installer, will activate the OS install automatically. The COA/key on the underside of the machine is a proof of license and the key listed is not the key used in the OEM installer.

If you would like to erase and go back to a factory install, I have XP Pro for the T60 and X61, either should be a close enough match to work on the X60.

Oh yes please I would love to have the key/product and any advice on installing it.
Some times it seems you know where your going and suddenly it all changes. It's like wading a stream where you can see the other side but further in you go the deeper you get and half way across you just don't know what's going to happen.

Shoot me a PM with your preference to which recovery media you want to try.

These are all CD images, so you will need a USB ODD or UltraBase to do the restore as well as a few CD-Rs or CD-RW disks.

You do not meet the qualifications set forth in post 1 for receipt of recovery media. I have not received your message. Please try again in a few months or after you have been more active on the forum. Thanks!
