I have used my T30 in a small replicator, no problems. I have a larger Mini dock 2878, and when I tried it in that, didnt seem to what to fit. Booted up the T30 and no Windows, stalls at F1 screen. Do I have to relaod all the discs?

When you take the T30 off the dock, does it boot into Windows normally?
I've had a faulty 2878 kill a perfectly healthy A31p, so be careful...

I tried 6 times out of the dock, no luck. if I load XP Pro, windows UPDate will not see it unless it is SP2 or better. this is the T-30 Host with one of my 30 GB HD in it. life, so much fun.

Sometime this weekend I will get the 30 GB back into it's 1.8 home.. The Host T-30 works great in the small dock, and I have used the larger 2878 on the 1.8 before. (the 2878 has 4 USB ports). My 2.0 has a damaged port but everything else works on that T-30, really great shape.

I did a search and found when I tried the 2.0 in the big Dock, it also wiped out Windows. Guess I will toss the 2878. Of all the T-30s here, only the 1.8 has a good base with working dock port covers. Too bad that is the worse mobo. Is there a good tutorial on swapping cases??

OK. I put the 30 GB HD back into the Host machine, still will NOT boot to windows. Is the Host T-30 Toast? or can I try anything? Pulling the CMOS battery just like a PC? fulling charged battery, working 1.5 GB MB. or, putting the 30 GB HD back in and try loading Windows??

If you have a XP retail disk (not the IBM recovery set) you can try the "repair" function.

well, I put the 30 GB HD back into the 1.8 T-30 and it is doing the same thing, locks up at F1 screen. Will not load Windows. Tried a Set up disc and nothing. So 2 T-30s down. one left, not screwing around with that one. ideas?
