To change the device boot order you need to go into the BIOS setup.

How to enter boot menu on IBM thinkpad x41? I am trying to start with usb


Restart your computer with the USB drive connected, and press the blue "Access IBM" button on your keypad. Select "Startup Utility" and go to "Boot Order." Change "USB Device" to "Primary," save changes and exit. When your system reboots, it should boot from the USB drive.

I have a ibm thinkpad r51 but when i turn it on it will load to somewords and il say media test failure check cable exiting intel boot agent then it will jut stay there


It's trying to boot from a LAN or Network. You want it to boot from your hard drive.

Temporary Fix that you will have to change each time you turn on the laptop:
Notice the screen when you press the power button, at some point it will tell you the keys to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup and the key to hit to Change the Boot Order. Hit the key to Change the Boot Order and select the Hard Drive

Permanent Fix
Notice the screen when it boots up and press the key that allows you to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Tab over to the area that allows you to set the Boot Sequence. Set your Hard Drive as the 1st Boot.
The best boot sequence is:
1. CD/DvD Drive First (Just make sure nothing is in the drive when you boot)
2. Hard Drive 2nd

I bought a new Western Digital PATA 320gb notebook hard drive for my Thinkpad T30. The bios recognizes the drive but when I try to boot from the dvd rom drive it won't boot. What's the problem?


Take a look at this image, read the Had drive manual on how to set the jumper, Try cable select jumper settings, if not work, try the master settings, if not try the slave settings, one of the settings must go on and works fine.

Here where you can find the jumper settings,

IBM THINKPAD R32 Tryin buttons to boot won't work?


Normally when as you bootup press F12 and you get a list of devices that you can select to boot up.
If the doesn't work go into the BIOS setup and go to the boot order configuration and set the CD as the first boot device. Later you can change it back if you wish.
