Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
I insert new hdd in lt but the setup can't run
We have a tonne of T41's here at work, but I can't remember if they use IDE disks or SATA.
If it *is* SATA, you need to get the SATA drivers from IBM's website, extract and put them on a floppy disk.
Start the Windows install, then when it says to press F6 to load additional drivers, do that. Feed it the floppy disk, and go on with the options.
In short, the Windows installer can't see the SATA disk without the driver being "pre-installed".
