I'm trying to get some Slackware action on my X60 Tablet, but for some reason I can't seem to be able to boot off any USB key or hdd. Would really appreciate it if you could help me out.
I used these instructions to make the key (OCZ Rally 2GB) bootable: http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/pub/distro/slackware/slackware-12.1/usb-and-pxe-installers/README_USB.TX...
It works fine on all the other computers in my house (3 desktops), but on the laptop I get the dreaded black screen "boot error" message - hence it has to be an issue with the thinkpad. The BIOS is updated to the latest version, and after googling away for hours, I have no idea what to do.
Any suggestions ?
