X41 type 2525

Hi there

 

a thinkpad X41 type 2525 with only a HDD.

 

it has boot options for USB floppy and CD.

 

when i remove the hdd and install XPhome via another machine, all seems well.

 

refitting the HDD usually gives the message NO OS Present.

 

if i then try and boot from it as a USB HDD it will sometimes show and fail to boot.

 

 

the original os belonged to the former owner and was XPPro. this was removed/wiped.

 

i would like to know how to get the thinkpad to boot. 

 

preferably from an image on a USB stick straight onto the HDD.

 

i would consider Linux or DOS, just to prove the sequence of events prior to XP.

 

any help appreciated.
