I have a IMB think pad T22 and when I start it up it always says a disk read error occured


Might want to check your boot sequence. I suspect it's reading either CD drive (or floppy drive) prior to your Hard disk drive. Make sure to empty contents in that drive prior to boot up so as to avoid the errors (harmless errors though)

Thinkpad wont get past boot page


Hold down the F1 key, and power on the computer to get into the "Easy Setup".
Change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first, save your settings, then restart the computer and have your Widows CD (or original system restore CD) in the CD player so it will read the CD before the information on the harddrive. If that don't work, replace the harddrive
