Is there any way I can restore this T41 to its original state with Windows XP?
I'm happy to pay for recovery CDs but about an hour of Google searching didn't yield any way to obtain such CDs. Is this machine destined for landfill?
Can't vouch for them as I currently have no CDRs to burn them to and my attempts to convert the first ISO into a bootable USB drive have failed thus far.
You can always buy a brand new copy of Win XP with the COA and download the drivers from here.
You can also download a complete .ISO with SP3 and it will auto-activate as it did on my systems. MS now considers this abandonware and there is no longer a paid license required.

This is a clean download with no bug, trojans, malware, or other hidden nasties. I've reloaded two systems with this disc and it just plain works right out of the box. You will of course need the IBM drivers that you can download from this site at the top of the page. Click on the 'Drivers' link.
