so instead of the cd-reader you have an ultrabay bay parallel port/serial port adapter? in your bios tray switching the sata mode from achi to compatibility.
You have to install the OS from the Thinkpad to get it working, as XP is fussy with the hardware configuration change from one machine to another, especially between different manufacturers.
