So, what is it you want to do?
The hard drive on a T20 is in a slot on the left side of the unit, and it's cover can be taken off by removing 1 screw on the bottom just under the sound ports.
Hope that helps.

    Yes, there will need to be an operating system installed if the hard drive is a new one.

    Good luck

Does not recognize hard drive

1. try reseating it if that doesn't help you might have a hard-drive failure. the only way to be sure is trying a replacement drive (maybe you can borrow from someone or from another laptop - currently on laptops there are 2 types of hard drives IDE and SATA don't mix them up, they are not interchangable)

Where is the hard drive located on the think pad t20?

It is a slot on one side, held by one screw.

Unplug laptop and remove battery.

After unscrewing, slide down and then pull out the plastic cover toward the side of the laptop. You will find attached the hard disk caddy.

You will need to remove the hard disk from the caddy by undoing four screws.

Make sure your replacement hard drive is compatible in geometry (supported by your ThinkPad T20). Check and see if your BIOS setup utility has an auto-detect function.

It would be good if you knew the contents of your replacement drive. You said it might be installed, it might not. If there is nothing on the drive, the ThinkPad should report 'no operating system' or similar message, but it is possible that it might not show anything other than a blinking cursor

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.
