I am no newbie. I've done dozens of clean installs of WinXP and Linux on Intel boxes of various flavors. My Thinkpad T42 has managed to thwart me. Arghh!
Where I am at:
1) Wiped hard disk
2) Purchased Rescue and Recovery CD and ThinkPad Product Recovery CDs (7-pack)
3) Installed Rescue/Recovery and navigated to "return to factory settings"
4) Installed ThinkPad Product Recovery CDs.
Following the required reboot after the 7th disk in the Product Recovery series I am immediatetly directed back to Rescue/Recovery hell and not into WinXP as I assumed.
Could someone, anyone please rescue me from rescue/recovery hell. I just want my WinXP back.
