Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook
Yes I'm stupid but I was trying to reload XP & couldn't get the T41 to boot from the CD. I messed with the boot sequence (I may have removed the HD from the list!) and now it won't start. After trying the IBM button, I get the message "Authentication of System services failed".
How to completely reset this PC back to a state I can reload software.
I don't mind wiping the HD and starting again. Can anyone help.
With the cd reboot and press F12 for a temporary boot list, select boot from cd. At this point just choose install xp and follow the prompts.
