Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 2648 Notebook
Hi, has anyone here tried to install windows xp on a newly installed hard drive? i don't have the recovery disks for my thinkpad because i think it's saved on a separate partition in the original hard drive... how can i actually access it and reinstall it? I replaced my hard drive on my IBM ThinkPad T21, now I,m trying to install Windows XP Pro on a new hard drive and not sure where to start.
You can go about this 2 ways.
First, if you have, or can get your hands on a copy of Windows xp; Load the windows system, then go to the IBM support site and download your drivers. Then you will be ready to go.
Secondly, call IBM support and get a set of recovery cds. You will have to have the information from the stickers that are on the bottom of the pc. I don't remember the exact cost, but as I remember it's about $54-55. Usually takes a couple of days to receive them.
Either way that you do it, you're going to wrap up a couple of hours.
