This problem usually requires the Operating System CD, but here are a few things you can try before having to have the OS CD:

Try loading the Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) by following these instructions:

  1. To load the last known good configuration in Windows, reboot the computer.
  2. Before the Windows Loading screen appears, press and hold your "F8 Key", this should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below.
  3. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
  4. As can be seen from the example below, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.

Still unsuccessful? You will need the OS CD, unless you have the Recovery Console already installed and available using the Operating System Selection screen:
  1. Start your computer by running the Recovery Console.
  2. Run the chkdsk /p command on the drive, and then restart your computer.
If you are still unsuccessful, you will need to run an OS Repair using the Operating System CD, here are the steps:

Windows XP
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" schow can i fix my lenovo t60 ibm thinkpad. I just - d3573cb.gifu will see the options below:d3573cb.gif
  3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup.
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
Windows Vista

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc. If you do not restart your computer from the disc, the option to repair your computer will not appear.
Here is a step by step picture guide.

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc:
  1. Insert the installation disc.
  2. Restart your computer.

  3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

Windows 7

  1. If a startup problem is detected, Startup Repair will start automatically and try to fix the problem.
  2. If the problem is severe enough that Startup Repair doesn't start on its own and you can't access the System Recovery Options menu on your computer's hard disk, you can get to the menu and start Startup Repair by using the Windows installation disc or a system repair disc that you created earlier.

I have a lenovo ibm thinkpad t60...I got a new hard drive as my old hard drive capacity was very low....now when i put the new drive it says BOOTMGR missing: Please press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to...


You have to install Windows or other operating system on the new hard drive before you can use it. If you already installed it, then it means Windows got corrupted. You can try to Repair your Windows using the Windows installation CD (for Repair choose R when prompted). You can let the automatic repair to try and fix it, if that doesn't work upon restart reboot and start the Repair again, but this time select Command Prompt or Console and put in "bootrec /rebuildbcd" without the quotes. If you don't have Windows installation CD you can try downloading Hiren's Boot CD and try to fix the bootmgr with the utilities from the disc: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/

Forgot cmos password after cearing cmos not able to boot from harddisk. Pls assist me how to remove cmos password of ibm T60 laptop


I just helped a friend out with this exact issue on the same notebook. Here is the instructions (step by step...well 4 steps) that worked perfectly. What you are doing is using a backdoor password set up by IBM/Lenovo.

Turn on your Thinkpad T60 computer.

  • Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.


  • Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.


  • Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.

  • Hope this helps...

    I have a IBM Thinkpad T41...trying to load windows 7, but keep receiving an error message that boot manager is missing. I probably need to download drivers to fix the problem. Any thoughts please???


    The first thing to check is whether you have a USB memory stick or Phone plugged into the PC. if so take it out and restart the machine. Let me know if this solves you problem. if not we need to more onto more complex trouble shooting.

    T60 will not boot up


    There appears to be a BIOS update or two available for the Lenovo TP T60. One of the updates makes reference to this error code, but the verbage afterwards is a little different to that posted here. Mind you, my recommendation is that you should stay on target with BIOS updates because they are fixing problems with the computer, even if you don't realise you are having those problems!

    Please go here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-64462.html

    Press Ctrl F and search for 2100. This tells you which update fixed a problem with ERROR 2100: At the bottom of this page you will find that these updates are for all regions. You will also find the link to the BIOS update utility.

    My experience of BIOS updates on the Thinkpad range is that you have to undock the laptop prior installing the BIOS update, and ensure the laptop has a constant power support - NOT BATTERY. Ensure you read the on-screen notes carefully.

    Hope this helps.
