Setup & Installation / Re: ThinkPad X220

No.. if you move harddrive with Windows 7 from X220 to X230 - Windows will not start.
So, the internals are very different.

L530 and T530 are very different. Different internals (BIOS, ..). Yes, logo is the same.

To format USB flash or HDD to FAT32 you can use ReFormat utility

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS install - can't create partition
« on: May 28, 2017, 11:22:58 am »
1) To install Windows and OS/2 to one harddrive, you should format all partitions from OS/2. Then install Windows, then install OS/2.
It is recommended install OS/2 to new harddrive always.

2) If ArcaOS installer refuses to install and offers "Fix partition", again and again, then
* convert GPT to MBR (if necessary)
* try remove existing windows partitions using shareware Windows disk tools (Arconis, Paragon)

try change settings in BIOS setup,
* Security Boot = disable

Hardware / Re: New Laptop with AMD Processor

one more example - laptop repair services even don't spend efforts to reanimate the laptops with AMD. It doesn't give income to them, the problem will appear again in several monthes again.

So, when you select a laptop, always put AMD to the black list.

and one more argument for Intel: the users prefer Intel wifi adapters instead of Realtek and other "alternative" cheap adapters.

I don't recommend laptops with AMD.
as was mentioned, such laptops are cheap, warranty is short, the processors burn often.

OS/2 users select OS/2 instead of Windows but it is recommended use high quality hardware (Intel x Cisco x high-end Lenovo  x ..  )

It's not clear,
do they pay you 119 EURO if you take this computer?
Or you should pay 119 EURO?

I recommend:
* OS/2 2016 supports modern i3/i5/i7 computers
* or buy used  brand desktop (ThinkCentre, HP, Dell)

Setup & Installation / Re: OS/2 installation on ThinkPad T420
« on: July 05, 2016, 05:43:03 pm »
Yes, I agree,  Thinkpad T420 works fine with OS/2 5-th generation (ACPI, modern kernel).

If you want inserted disk from other PC, then
* verify what video driver is installed. Install Panorama VESA
* temporary disable USB drivers (if IBM USB drivers)
