Hi,

I'm new here but was hoping to get the original installation disc for my T30 laptop if anyone knows where I can get them. Can someone help me? I got this machine used a while back and now it just needs a fresh re-install to breathe new life back into it. I need to use it with some old SCSI back up drives. Thanks!

Kevin

What is the Zip Code for your city (postal code)
Something like 62-262 Wierzyce

I have the discs, and will only ship US Postal.
6 discs total
1, 2, and 3 are Original Restore Disc copies
4 is XP Service packs 2 and 3
5 is Misc software including Dot Net and XP Service pack 1, all needed to get on line
6 is the 1802 WiFi Linux disc
These 6 disc will save you days of downloading.

PM me the Postal Code for a quote on shipping and a final cost.
Paypal is fine (required)

Thanks
Ron

I am looking for recovery CDs for type 2366-91U. I have a set of 3 Product Recovery CDs but I am getting an error during the "convertion phase". Not sure if this is because the R&R boot CD was the incorrect one but I tested the factory reset process using the other R&R boot CDs I have on hand and nothing work. Thanks.

I have moved these to a Google Drive. For a donation to Bill's Odyssey (Thinkpads Forum), you can obtain a copy for your personal use.
Total file size is a little under 2.5 gigs and contains:

6 discs total
1, 2, and 3 are Original Restore Disc copies
4 is XP Service packs 2 and 3
5 is Misc software including Dot Net and XP Service pack 1, all needed to get on line
6 is the 1802 WiFi Linux disc
and a READ ME file or two.

I originally charged $25.00 including express mail shipping. Let your heart be your guide.

You can use this PayPal Donation Link or click on the PayPal link at the top of this page.

And then just PM me for the link to the Google-drive.

Ron

I want to report that I'm all good thanks to jronald. It was his PDF instructions that made the difference. Turns out that my set of 3 recovery disks were good. I simply need to discard the IBM Rescue and Recovery CD and boot directly from the first recovery disk. Being able to perform the factory recovery without the IBM R&R boot disk is new to me.

... sorry for the delay in closing this: work got busy right after I verified his instructions.

All, I still get a few requests a year for these and they are still available. Easy transaction, make a donation and I send you a link. Roughly a week later I kill the link.

Its for a good cause!
Ron
