I am in the process of rebuilding a R51 Thinkpad that has had a HD replaced. IBM for some reason feels it doesn't need to reload its Rescue and Recovery program onto new HD so I am trying to use Recovery CDs made from a working R51. Does anyone know if there is a problem with trying to do so. When I get into the RnR and start the reset to factory settings it gives me a Operation Failed message. Something to do with the preload I believe.
Thanks for any helps.
