Wanted: T42pWin XP R&R Disc #6 ISO or the Expanded Folders

#1 Post by olex126 » Sun Jun 07, 2020 1:30 pm

Hi All.

I recently discovered that my Disc # 6 ISO file of the Rescue & Recovery Set for my T42p-series was corrupt....(as of course, was the backup of the file!....Grrrrrrr!). The rest of the Recovery set (the R&R Disc itself and 6 of the 7 installation discs) are fine and those .ISO files burned properly to good discs. Only Disc #6 refused to restore properly.

Does anyone have an ISO file of that disc they would be willing to post? I can host on Dropbox, just send me an email or PM and I will send you an invite to upload.

The ISO Header:

0) Name: R51,T42,T42p
1) CD#: Disc 6 of 7
2) Date: 01/28/2005
3) CD P/N: 24R7834
4) OS: XP-P SP2
5) Lang: EN
6) FRU#: 24R7684
7) MS Date 2004
8)Type: 1829,1830,1831,1836,1840,1841,2373,2374,2378,2379


Many thanks to any and all who can assist! :D

Regards.

Dave

P.S..... Yes I know I can load Win XP and then download all the drivers, but I'm trying to keep one T42 machine with Factory install.

I have an original IBM 7-CD set for R51/T42/T42p.
Type: 1829,1830,1831,1836,1840,1841 only, no 23xx mention
But it is an older set for XP-P only and dated 03/28/2004.
So no Service Packs yet :( although they are available separately.
Disc 6 of 7 has P/N 24R4976, FRU 24R4832.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

Thanks RBS!

My T42p is a 2373-KYU.

I checked the supported units of some of the machine types listed, and some have the same screen resolution (UXGA) and video chip (ATI 128 Mb Fire GL) that my 2373 supports, so I'll give it a go.

My only concern would be that when the install program requests a specific header (part number) when restoring from Disk # 5 to Disk # 6....the older disk from your set may "throw up" all over the install process!

Willing to give it a go though if you don't mind making an ISO of the disk. Hopefully it would work without resorting to upload the entire recovery set!

Sending PM.
