Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

Thinkpad wont get past boot page

\015 The imb thinkpad screen with the f1 and f12 option comes on for a second and the a black screen that says invalid system disk replace the disk and then press any key\015

Answers :

I see ..this is cause the hard disk is in error or have bads on it ....try to press F1 when it cames ..this will agree that you want to boot from the disk anyway ...if it doesnt work ...take a look at the hard disk to see if it is plugged ok ..and have the power on ....
the next move is to reinstall the operation system ...and format the C partition in NTFS quick ..to get over bad sectors...that might block regular formatting ...after that install OS cause some of the system boot files might be on a Bad sector ( sector on the disk that is corrupted) and this stops it from booting
if it really do not want any of these...you need to change the Hdd cause its dead..and gone....
Good luck ...!
Hold down the F1 key, and power on the computer to get into the "Easy Setup".
Change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first, save your settings, then restart the computer and have your Widows CD (or original system restore CD) in the CD player so it will read the CD before the information on the harddrive. If that don't work, replace the harddrive
