Recently, Lenovo has completed moving the old IBM Thinkpad Support site (usually at the www-307.ibm.com domain) onto the support.lenovo.com domain. If you have links or references that contain the MIGR or document name, then you might be able to get to those documents directly by using this trick:Please NOTE: as years go by, these links may become invalid.
The links will NOT be updated, since they are not links to our Forum.
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail. ... ID=[b]<put MIGR/document name here>[/b](Note, this is the US English version. You may be able to change the language by replacing the "en_US" with the language/location code for your area)
For example, I was just looking for the Thinkpad BIOS matrix page. The old link I've been using was:
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail. ... =TPAD-SIMS (BIOS Simulator)
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail. ... MIGR-55644 (Memory compatibility)
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail. ... PAD-MATRIX (Thinkpad Drivers and Software matrix)
edit Aug 6, 2011:
For current document names, such as "PD011979" then use this URL:
From trying a couple of combinations, it appears you can't use "Legacy" document names (MIGR-, TPAD-MOVIES, etc.) with this URL. Similarly, you can't use the Document ID names (PD014527 and the like) with the "&LegacyDocID=" version.
You can also try using the "site:" option in Google searches to find information:
<search terms> site:support.lenovo.com
