Question about IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook
My internal DVD-ROM is malfunctioning and I would like to boot from a DVD using an external USB DVD-ROM. My computer is an IBM Thinkpad T22, there does not appear to be an option in the boot menu for USB.
I assume with "boot menu" you mean the BIOS boot menu (the one you get
to if you press F12 during start up, before the Windows screen appears.)
Note: I am not 100% sure if you can boot from a DVD externally.
I booted from the internal DVD drive fine with a Linux LiveCD. It is possible that the T22 BIOS does not support external booting. Check you version - the latest release from IBM is version 16ET32WW (1.12), release date 06/03/2004. You find that info here.
I would really appreciate if you could come back here and leave a comment, so I (and maybe others?) can learn form this ;-)

You should enable legacy USB support from BIOS
