600E recovery disk insta reboot?

#1 Post by Raidriar » Sat Sep 15, 2018 10:52 pm

A kind soul on reddit was kind enough to give me the two restore disc ISO’s for the 600 series. I burned both and verified, but when I try to boot the disc, it shows IBM Thinkpad, sleep mode enabled, and the last thing I see before reboot is driver was successfully installed.

Did you just copy those files onto a CD or did you burn them properly, using a program such as e.g. ImgBurn?

Burned the isobumsge using ultra iso at 4x speed. It’s bootable, it just doesn’t finish loading before it restarts.
