I need help restoring my T43.
My computer was running slow with a lot of years of programs and I wanted to restore it back to the factory settings.
I have all 8 factory disk and went through the process of running all the disk, after disk 6 it ask for the supplemental CD and when I place it in the dvd and click OK the laptop will reboot going through a cycle of restoring I then get an error message of IBM Product Recovery failed during the conversion phase
I read in one form that the memory stick was bad so I pulled out the 512 stick and ran the hole process again still the same message.

Fiscubadude, welcome to the forum,
are you sure those discs are for your model number? If my memory serves me right the supplemental disc was introduce with the T61s etc. or late in the T60s reign.
There should be model numbers on the first recovery disc, not the boot disc, do they correspond with your model number?
