Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook
Hi, there was windows vista on my notebook having single partition. i wanted to install windows server 2003 only so i omited partition and made new one. now when i try to install server 2003, i get error that 'make sure that your harddisk is properely configured and powered on' like that. and even i cant make any change in BIOS. so how could i perform HDD detection in BIOS? please provide me solution. thank you very much.
I ran into the same problem when installing Windows XP SP2. This is what you do.. 1. Go into the BIOS (F1 during startup). 2. Go to the SATA menu. 3. Change the setting to compatiablty. You should be able to install the operation now. After the installtion of the base os, you should go to lenovo website to download the drivers and follow the instructions there.

Looks like you messed with boot sector of the hard disk and looks like now it cannot boot. I would go and change the bios setting to boot from CD, insert the Windows 2003 server in the CD Drive and boot from it. Once there , delete all the partitions and create a new volume.
