Hi,
Recently I got T30 2366-QU5 from my friend. It doesn't have Operating System, but has XP professional COA sticker on bottom side. I want to load IBM's OS & drivers on it. I searched many places to download the OS Restore CDs, no luck so far. Could you please help me to have restore CDs to load XP & drivers.
Presently it has 2X512MB memory, Can I upgrade it to 2X1GB?
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in Adavance.

Do I need to repeat myself?

And yes, your T30 can handle 2x1GB.

I too need the recovery disks for the T30 - I did a clean install of XP Professional after I was unable to recover from the recovery partition due to hang ups on install and thus the restore software in the recovery partition was replaced by the XP software I installed - thanks for any assistance

Quick question... Whats so special about this disks, well... i mean, the software they contain, that a clean install of WXP wont do, (Besides the drivers, wich have to be manually downloaded)

What kind of software does it contain (In case i want one :twisted: )

Salut!

They are the recovery disks from IBM, which include Windows XP Pro (without any Service Packs) as well as all the T30 drivers and specific T30 software. I add another disk with additional software.
For a factory Recovery you do not need Windows activation, for any other Windows version you do.
That's why these disks are preferred over any others.
