need recovery cd set iso for ibm thinkpad x20 machine type 2662-uc1

#1 Post by courtneycomputerrepair » Wed Oct 23, 2019 3:21 am

Hi I'm new to this site I have just acquired and IBM Thinkpad X20 from a friend with the machine type 2662-uc1 and I was wondering if anybody new where I can get an iso of the original restore cd for the IBM Thinkpad x20 machine type 2662-uc1 because :-P I would like to restore it to manufacturer settings if anyone knows where I can get an iso or the cd set that would be nice. I had to erase the hard drive for security concerns. I also have acquired an IBM Thinkpad A20m with machine type 2626-41u if anybody has the recovery cd iso or set for that as well, that would be very much appreciated

what i found in the dusty archives is a true blue original X20 recovery set win2k for MT 2661.. MT=machine type..
not for sale..
i have been malingering on sorting the non-recovery from the recovery CD's in preparation for sending them all to forum member theterminator93 who is willing to rip them into .iso's for more or less free downloading..
would you mind waiting a bit while i find the impetus to do the sorting, packing and sending..?
ALL assuming that the 2661 will suffice for a 2662 thinkpad..

I have X23 and X24 restores, but they're XP. I do have Windows 98 for the T20, which should be "similar" enough that I think you could do a successful restore without missing much in the way of drivers. If you want to try that in the meantime while Bill sorts out his collection, let me know and I'll send you a download link.

Thank You, I got the restore CD ISO Burned to a CD and I was able to restore my IBM ThinkPad X20 type 2662-UC1 to factory defaults using the IBM ThinkPad T20 recovery CD ISO from a fellow user on this site, however, not all of the drivers were compatible with my IBM ThinkPad X20 type 2662-UC1. I was able to track down the drivers, put them on a blank CD-R, and install the drivers that were missing from the restore CD. If anyone has the original original restore CD set ISO specifically for the IBM ThinkPad X20 with the 2662-UC1 machine type, please Personal message me. also my IBM ThinkPad X20 2662-UC1 came with windows 98 SE according to my Windows 98 Certificate of Authenticity on the bottom of my laptop. thank you in advance,



Sean Courtney
