Try setting up xp again. If you need the files as is, try repair from the xp cd while boot from the cd.

How do I restore a IBM Thinkpad to factory settings I have tried to logon to windows XP it open's, but but will not let me in. I have pressed F11 and got Startup Interrup Menu


If it has the blue IBM Access button on it, press that immediately after turning on the computer. It should load a page with options to run a recovery.

I bought a used ibm r40, changed the hard dsrive and tryed to load xp pro. after loading the system files the computer wants to reboot to finalise. After this it goes right back to fresh install start.


When you say you tried to load XP Pro, did the hard drive already have XP installed or are you installing it fresh from a CD? If you are installing it fresh from the CD and it is asking you to reboot, it seems as if you are letting it try to boot again from the CD. When it reboots and says "Press any key to boot from CD..." don't press anything, just let it boot. It should finalize the installation there!

Hope that helps!

I can't load any OS on an IBM Thinkpad


Since both operating systems are failing to install, I would suspect that there is a problem with the installation of the harddisk (cable not securely connected) or the new harddisk is faulty.

I have a thinkpad t20 and a 570e, both with


The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

Usually XP will work well on older systems, even ones that came with 98. The biggest thing will be if XP has drivers for the older devices such as the modem. Usually XP does a good job.

How can i load awindows xp on ibm 600e


I have done this many times.
To install XP on an IBM 600E , you needd to upgrade the RAM at least to 256MB.
Then use a Windows install disk to install XP.
After installing Windows you will have to update drivers from IBM website here: Lenovo Support & downloads - Drivers and software - ThinkPad 600 ...
There is no driver for 600E video adapter on XP, video performances will be limited.
