for you information, i've installed the latest bios and embedded controller version on my 1866-6SU.
since i replaced the original HDD with a mtron ssd, and windows runs perfectly fast), i'm annoyed about a thing, that's obviously some kind of bug.
the bios is taking aboubt 15-20 sec or so till the windows logo appears.
it seems, there is some kind of extended memory test running (pressing ESC shows it). EMT is deactivated in bios, of course. changing the parameter changes nothing. so i think there's the problem.
i've got 512 onboard and 1024 ram (..with Lenovo FRU) extra installed.
what's the reason?
you may also read about it in a german TP forum.
Another thing, i'd appreciate to deactivate the scanning for the free fall sensor, since i don't need it with the SSD. this also takes 3-4 seconds.
The 2010 is annoying,to. but i can live with that.
i'd be happy to hear from you. if you need some extra information, please tell me. thank you!

Welcome to the forum!
Are you sure that your X41T is not booting in "Diagnostics" mode?
Good luck and let us know.

Thank you for your reply.
Hmm, ok, i think i'm pretty shure it IS booting in "diagnostics" mode.
but i don't know why. diagnostics mode is not enabled in bios.
what could the bios let do the diagnostic mode, without having activated it?

Hi, some news on this:
I found out that booting in diagnostics mode takes about 27seconds till 2010 appears.
I also found out that pressing ESC at the IBM screen starts diagnostic mode, for it takes also 27 seconds.
My X41T takes about 20 seconds till 2010.
No one got an idea?
I will try removing the additional RAM this weekend and see what happens.
