T43 recovery media on USB

#1 Post by John_Vella » Sat Jun 03, 2023 8:18 am


I'm currently downloading the recovery discs for my Thinkpad T43 and am wondering if I can burn the ISO files to a USB stick, rather than having to burn them all to CD.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Might be possible if you set BIOS/Startup/Boot/Boot priority to -USB HDD.
Then cold-start and immediately press F12.
But I don't think you can properly put all CDs on 1 stick and/or swap a number of USB sticks.
