IBM ThinkPad R31 Recovery Disks

#1 Post by aleksandia » Sun Nov 28, 2021 4:27 am

Hello everyone,

I just recently purchased an IBM ThinkPad R31 without an OS. However I am unable to find recovery disks for that ThinkPad online and was wondering if anyone has an image of these disks.


Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,
aleksandia

Thanks for the reply, however there are no files on that link. However a new set of ISO's was uploaded, but they are not working, as I only see a MS-DOS screen but no set-up instructions. Would appreciate some help.

Thanks for the reply. That's a set I uploaded, but forgot to mention that.
No set I found on the internet was working, so I had to make one that was working, based upon what was available on the internet.

Kind regards
