X41 Tablet Restoration Trouble (Failed in convertion phase)

#1 Post by bhove » Mon Jun 05, 2017 5:33 pm

I have the thinkpad X41t recovery ISOs for Windows XP Tablet Edition. I put the boot disk on a flash drive, and it boots the utility and works fine, but when I click ok to let it delete all the files and wipe the hard drive I get the error "Failed in convertion phase.
As far as I know, "convertion" isn't even a real word, so I'm pretty confused what this means.
Any suggestions?
I'm posting this publicly in case anyone else is having trouble with restoring a thinkpad.

First, USE AN EXTERNAL CD DRIVE. I cant stress this enough. Old laptop(pre 2010) have trouble with using USB media outside of a booted operating system. Second, the conversion to a NTFS file system didnt work, drive could be dead. It is possible. Try on CD and see if it works.

With great power comes great responsibility!

A lesson Lenovo has not cared to learn yet.
