I have just brought my T60p back to it's original factory setup and need to update the drivers & BIOS to be current, I have been unable to find the Lenovo link that gets this done automatically & I would greatly appreciate any help in that regard.

Welcome to the forum!
I think ThinkVantage System Update is what you are looking for:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/TVSU-UP

I don't know if I should have created a new topic because Mahila's solution could answer my request.
My T61p system was originally delivered with Vista Ultimate 32 and I just added a second drive in the ultrabay slot to install XP Pro. I did it removing Vista drive before installing XP on the ultrabay drive to avoid any MBR update or mess. So I do choose OS for boot by pressing F12 key at every startup. As I installed XP from a retail product I purchased for that purpose, I got no ThinkVantage Technologies software and a lot of system components were not even recognized by Windows. Thus I miss a lot of drivers and in particular some APM or ACPI piece of software to get hibernation and sleep features. To complete the job, I would like to use a quite automated process instead of installing all updates manually, picking them up from Lenovo Web site.
Till now, I can run SP3 with IE8 and Windows Update has been working fine to achieve that.
My question is: as my PC was delivered from factory with Vista installed, can I install ThinkVantage System Update 3.14 for XP and then launch it to complete all mandatory or useful updates? Should I use it in a particular way because my system reference (6457-5GG) could just refer to the Vista OS that was originally installed and Lenovo update server could be confused.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Kind regards from France
