Recovery Set Repository

#1 Post by theterminator93 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:52 am

As a few of you probably know I wrote the home page article about the ThinkPad software collection a year and a half-ish ago. I've periodically responded to requests for recovery disks through the comments on that article, as well as when members PM me or publicly post a request here. My goal continues to be to amass as many sets as is practical for archival and posterity, and if I'm able to share them with others in need along the way I'm always pleased to do so. I never ask for financial compensation when I share a recovery CD set, unless I'm asked to burn and mail disks. I merely request that you own the ThinkPad with the appropriate CoA label you intend to use any restore sets you acquire from me on, for appropriate software licensing purposes.

I've hesitated posting something like this until now but wanted to make everyone generally aware of what sets I have, for two reasons: 1) in case someone needs a set, they know exactly what I have that I can provide, and 2) in case someone out there has a set I do NOT already have and is willing to share it with me for the purposes I mentioned earlier, that they can do so.

With that said, here's my current inventory of software recovery ISOs, hard disk and USB flash disk images (US English unless otherwise noted):

I believe I have the original 701C floppies, however I am unable to test at the moment as my A31p is not working yet. I'll update you if you want each file separately, assuming you don't already have it

I've got some files that look like they might be used to create a recovery, but no floppy disk images. If they check out I'd be happy to receive them!

This is a very helpful and generous service, theterminator93, thanks!

If I am able to find some of my old recovery disks, I'll check to see if I have any that aren't already in your list. I know that I have some for the X60T/X61T somewhere, but they've not surfaced out of my mess of storage boxes for a couple years now.

Hi,
I used to rebuild laptops in the early 90s and I still have quite a few Think Pads that I'm working on refurbishing but I'm missing some of the original recovery CD's for the 600x and 600e if you can get back to me please I do have quite a few recovery CDs for other models and am happy to share them with you. I need to go through it all to know exactly what I have in storage. I know I have at least 7-10 self booting recovery images that put the Windows on very quickly example 380z,760L,760XL,760XD,760E, much more including user manuals and most all legacy IBM Laptop Service Manuals, etc. I look forward to hearing from you and getting these up and running again. BTW, I really like your 600x with the 850P3, very nice!
Thanks,
Trickfan277

I'd be happy to share what I have for the 600 series. I have two sets for the 600 and two for the 600X; nothing explicitly for the 600E unfortunately (yet, anyway! :D).

I'll send a PM with a link shortly.

If you come across anything that you're willing to share, I'd be very grateful!
