Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad i Series 1412i Notebook ?

Booting problem I have an older IBM ThinkPad Type 2611 i series 451 When it boots up the ThinkPad and IBM logo appears on the screen but the system will not load. In the meantime I can hear a sound like a disk turning with intermittent clicks. It does not have a floppy disk drive and the noise continues even with the CD drive open. After a few minutes, it says "Insert system disk and press enter to continue." I have Windows XP Professional and even with the CD inserted, it does not seem to boot
