What was the other threads name ?
What was my link?
Most drivers now only comes on CD. Without a wcd-Rom, you would have to split the drivers files into multiple floppy drive then rejoin it on the laptop.

Restore IBM Thinkpad R500 Windows Vista to factory settings, erasing all passwords


You need a recovery disc for this operation. If you're any good with computers at all, and do not do this lightly, you can download dukes ban. Again this is not for novice pc users. This will literally and completely wipe your entire computer. Nothing will be recoverable and you will have to set everything. even the Hard Drive sizes. You will then need an OS disc like windows vista, windows 7, windows xp, etc and reload the entire OS back onto the hard drive.

Need a boot disk form my ibm 2647 is there link to go to and copy to disk?


Place an empty floppy in the drive. Double click on My Computer and find the floppy drive. Right hand mouse click and select Format. When the Format menu is displayed, select Make System Disc from the list.
That will format your floppy and include the operation system startup files.
Hope that helps.

Ibm thinkpad r60 hard drive not recognized in windows setup, but is recognized in bios. Why and hw the problem can be solved


It usually means that the Hard Drive and/or the adapter(plug) on the motherboard it plugs into needs a specific driver (storage) that is not in the list of drivers that the WIndows disc you are installing from has included on it. You may have to find this driver on the IBM Support site for your exact laptop and load it onto a USB flash drive from another computer, then load it from that USB flash drive during setup of Windows.

This can be tricky. If you can get a disc from IBM which loads this driver automatically you'd probably find it less of a hassle.

Accidentally delete the ntldr file and now the computer does not boot -my computer-(ibm thinkpad 2609) does ot have any cd or floppy drives abd i dont have my windows xp installation cd


You'll need a XP cd or another PC so you can make a copy and transfer that file to the ThinkPad. If that's possible, let me know and I'll tell you where it needs to be relocated on the ThinkPad.

It says "a disc read error occurred" press ctrl+alt+delete..... this is right at the start....it wont do anything now. help.....


Make sure you do not have a floppy diskette, CD or DVD inserted, or a USB drive plugged in. If the error continues, either your hard drive has a loose connection, has lost data, or has stopped working entirely.
You would need to remove it and put it in a USB enclosure and plug it into another computer for testing, or take it to an expert. Sorry. Best of luck.

Formatting IBM Thinkpad 600E


I know you can't boot from the Windows 98 CD, and probably not from Windows 2000 either. It is possible to turn the the Windows 98 bootable floppy into a bootable CD, but I think you would be much better of trying to install Linux.

Ibm thinkpad A21m 2628 floppy dr not working


Take a can or air and blow a little bit into the drive to make sure dust is not in there. Then use good known floppy disks to see if it reads at that point. If it still doesn't read then the floppy drive is bad and will need to be replaced.

Hal.dll corrupt or missing


Does the Hard Drive have Windows on it? If not, install the Windows Me Floppy disk. Select Run With CD-ROM Support or RUN With Out CD-ROM Support. Any of the two. After it gets done loading. type the following. fdisk

It will ask you do you want to use extended Hard Drive use? Y/N
Press Y. Then you'll get a screen with 4 options. If Windows is on there type 4. And see what it says on your hard Drive.

If you wish to erase Windows and reinstall it, click 3. to delete the partition and it will ask to restart the computer.

Restart the computer and reload to the fidisk screen and press 1. and it Will install a partition "Not Windows" After the Partition is installed restart the Computer and remove the floppy. If it comes up saying No Operating System found. Then the Hard Drive is set to install Windows.
The cheapest Windows XP you can buy Is Home Edition for $99.98, witch some stores still sell, like BestBuy.

If you want to send the Laptop to me I can install Windows on it for you. I have Windows 95,98,ME,2000 Pro, XP Home, XP Pro and Vista Home Basic. Thats if you don't want to spend money on Windows. Just pay for shipping.
