T43 Recovery - Loaded all 7 disk and "IBM PRODUCT RECOVERY FAILURE DURING THE CONVERTION PHASE'

Hi All,

 

Okay, I have been spinning my head, I have an OEM version of the Rescue and Recovery and Product Recovery disk from IBM, since the T43 that I got from someone, was wiped with a messed up XP loaded onto it.  Thus, I figure that I was restore the T43 back to factory condition. However when I have run thru disk 1-7, I get this dreaded message 'IBM Product Recovery Failure During the Convertion Phase'. Any one have any suggestions as I have run it three times and all loaded up until after the 7th disk, I get this error message when the system reboots after loading the final disk.

 

I rather try to keep it Factory OEM, but I'm thinking, myabe I should just re-install XP on a reformated HDD, but more of a hassle to try to reload all the drivers and maybe some missing DLL files too...

 

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Now my message says " IBM Product Recovery Failed to restore your system" ....so what next??? I am at a lost and I really don't want to re-load Win XP directly.

you would need another set of these discs.
