When trying to create backup disks from a used IBM T30 2266 I am unable to. Then I tried using the backup utility to my backup external drive. Which has more then enough room. 500gig's. while starting the utility it comes up with the error destination file path not valid, or I/O problem. I have no clue what this I/O is. Also I do not have a set of backup disks. And I have spent hours trying to locate them on the web and also on IBM'S site. It just keeps bringing you around in circles.

try remove battery and charger then press power button for 25 seconds - then if work good! - if not do OKR - OKR not working use recovery disk - still not work call thinkpad and let them create a depot service for you
After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.
Restore from backup You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup section) from hard disk, CD or DVD. 1 Boot to Windows XP. 2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility. 3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros. 4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and click Next. 5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
for registry error i don't think its required for replace the hard disk ... boot the laptop through win98 boot able cd and delete the all partition using fdisk command and try to install the os .............
Since this is apparently a hard drive issue, the very first thing to do is to back up all of your data files to a cd, or other media. Anything that you will need to put on a new hard drive. The easiest way to do this is to create a new folder and name it something like "my backup files". Then go through all of you files and put a copy of anything you want to save in the new folder. After doing all of this housekeeping, just transfer this new folder to your backup media. The next thing to do is to dig out those recovery disks that may have come with your system (Hopefully!). If not, do some exploring of your system resources to see if you can create a set of recovery disks. Some setups will let you do this. The good news is that your current hard drive may still run for a long time, even with the clicking sound. The additional good news is that it dies on you, you will have saved all of the necessary files to rebuild a new hard drive, if, or when needed.
To set up a new drive, you will need to reinstall the window os and then your data files can be copied to the new drive. R-
