Thinpad A 31

I bought this laptop used, and did not work. To test the operation I entered the Linux cd Lubit and the thinkpad a31 work properly, the only problem is not installed because he had no hdd. So I installed without updating bios and hdd upgrade has failed. Now I added hdd and the computer says "BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart" how do I restore?

Re: Thinpad A 31

Welcome to the forum!

 

My guess is that you're looking at a blank hard drive with no operating system installed.

Cheers,

Well, you'll need to locate install media for the OS that you want to install.

 

Format the drive and throw some light Linux on that A31, it should work fine.

Ok, I solved thanks, I wanted to ask one last thing. This has the thinkpad wifi module for connecting to the internet?

Maybe.

 

What's the full 7-character model number of that A31 (starts with 265*) located on the same sticker that holds the serial number and the production date on the bottom of the laptop?
