need original recovery CD set ISO specifically for IBM ThinkPad A20m in English

#1 Post by courtneycomputerrepair » Mon Oct 28, 2019 9:57 pm

Hello, I recently acquired an old IBM ThinkPad a20m with the 2626 machine type. I was wondering if anybody knew where I could get the original system recovery CD set ISO(s) specifically for the IBM ThinkPad A20m in the English language. If anyone either has the ISO(s) or knows where I can get the ISO(s) for free, please contact me though Personal Message

Peace out for now,



Sean Courtney

I just wonder what keyword you've used, as "A20m" displays two recoveries and Software Selections disc.

it's an Original IBM ThinkPad a20m with the machine type 2626, a Windows 98 COA on the bottom of the case, an AMD Radeon Mobility graphics card and an Intel Pentium III processor running at 600 MHz, I tried to google search it with those exact keywords but could not find anything.
