Question about IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook

Swap two hard drives

I'd like to swap a HD from an IBM T20 and an IBM T22. Both are running Windows XP. There is no other software/programs that I need to keep.

Can I just unplug from one and insert in the other?

    What are the jumper settings suggested in this solution?

    I guess what I'm not sure about is where to find/change the jumper settings???

Jumpers on disk drives are the little plastic squares fitted over metal pegs back near where the IDE connection is made on the drive. Sometimes, an abscence of a jumper implies a certain setting. To change the jumper settings, you physically move the jumper(s), so some needlenose pliers would be good to have. Many drive's jumper settings are located differently, but most explain themselves on the drive case somewhere, usually in a little chart. You can Google 'em up if need be, too, if you know the model. They tell the drive, simply put, how to interact with other similar drives and their connection(s). You may not need to change them, but just make that the drives being installed have similar jumper settings to those they are replacing: if the first drive was set to cable select, the drive taking its place should be set the same, in cable select. This holds true for master and/or slave settings, too.

Indeed you can. Make sure the jumper settings are identical for the swap, and as long as the replacement one has windows xp running on it you should be fine.

    You can use the same jumper settings as the other hard drive with this hard drive.

The type of drive is IDE and 2.5- Inch for all those models.

T20, T21, T22, T23 --- 2647 all use the same IDE type of drive.

These you can buy for example in ebay. Search for laptop hdd ide 2.5inch or similar.

IBM T30 Start-up HD options


Why do you what to boot up from the 2nd hard drive?
If you want to boot up with a different operating system from a 2nd drive, I suggest you set up a dual boot system with the other operating system on the 2nd drive.
When you boot up you will be given a menu and you can choose which operating system you want. There is a time delay and if you don't choose a system it will default to the first operating system on the list.

Hard Drive


When you boot from your OS CD it will run through Set Up and give you the option to format the harddrive.
Just select NTFS for windows 2000 or XP, or FAT32 for Windows 98/ME.

ThinkPad T22 will not boot to windows


I've seen several T20 series with the same problem. A CRC error pertains to a chipset on the motherboard, and the only way I've found to fix a CRC error is to replace the motherboard.

IBM Thinkpad T20 Type 2647


I currently own 3 Thinkpad T-20 Laptops. They all have a 700 mhz processor in them, and so will yours, more than enough to run windows xp, in fact, I am running Windows XP Profession on one of them. The PC100 is the type of memory it uses, not the processor speed. i recently installed a 120 gb drive in one of them so you will have no problem installing a 20 or 40 gb drive, or larger.

I would say the hard drive is failing. But need to run a diagnostic on it to be sure.

If you would like to know where to get the ibm / hitachi hard drive diagostic let me know. It's free for download and you can get a bootable ISO image to burn onto cd. Allowing you to boot from cd in order to test the drive.

As far as replacing, you should be good with a 60gb or 80gb. Did it orginally have a 20gb in it? I would say for most people, 60-80 is way more than enough. Unless you have a ton of music or pictures.
