Hello
T61 14.1" Widescreen(1280x800) 7663-DQ4
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Middleton%27s_BIOS
- I can't find 7663 in "compatibility list" so is it supported and what Middleton BIOS version fits it if any ?

+ Also any nice and genuine 1280x800 T61 Lenovo wallpaper = desktop background to use ? :?:

Read that again!
It says T61, T61p, R61 (14.1" widescreen wit....
Meaning it's valid for ALL T61 and T61p, plus specific R61
You need that first 2.29-1.08

Is the T61 BIOS picky about the media or burn speed ?
- CD-R
- CD-RW
- DVD-R
- Notepad says I can't use USB stick boot on 64-bit Windows 7 ?

I tried Fujifilm 4-12x CD-RW ( Burned 10x speed on Nero .ISO )
-> Boot order
1. ATAPI CD0: MATSHITADVD-RAM UJ-862(PM)

Checking files and environment...
Check failed.
!!! Battery is not attached !!!
C:\

Must I have a battery to install the Middleton BIOS ?
