Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook ?

How can I boot from USB in a Thinkpad T22?

\015 My internal DVD-ROM is malfunctioning and I would like to boot from a DVD using an external USB DVD-ROM. My computer is an IBM Thinkpad T22, there does not appear to be an option in the boot menu for USB.\015

Answers :

I assume with "boot menu" you mean the BIOS boot menu (the one you get\015\012to if you press F12 during start up, before the Windows screen appears.)
  1. Go to "Enter Setup"
  2. \015\012
  3. Go to "Config", click "Enter"
  4. \015\012
  5. Go down to "USB", click "Enter"
  6. \015\012
  7. Make sure that "USB Bios Support" is enabled.
  8. \015\012
  9. (Hit "Enter" again and choose between "enabled" and "disabled")
  10. \015\012
  11. Hit "Esc" twice to go back to the main page.
  12. \015\012
  13. Go down to "Startup", click "Enter"
  14. \015\012
  15. Choose "Boot"
  16. \015\012
  17. Check if "USB CD" is in the list of boot options or excluded form booting.
  18. \015\012
  19. Hit F10, confirm any changes you made (click "Enter" for 'yes') and reboot.
  20. \015\012
  21. Tap or hold down F12 again and you should see the boot option menu again.
\015\012Note: I am not 100% sure if you can boot from a DVD externally.
\015\012I booted from the internal DVD drive fine with a Linux LiveCD. It is\015\012possible that the T22 BIOS does not support external booting. Check you\015\012version - the latest release from IBM is version 16ET32WW (1.12),\015\012release date 06/03/2004. You find that info here.
\015\012I would really appreciate if you could come back here and leave a comment, so I (and maybe others?) can learn form this ;-)
\015\012Good luck!
