General Comments

Report by Sigurd Fastenrath
OS/2 Warp 4.52
OS/2 Warp 4.52 was installed by removing the Hard drive and cloning an image into it with DFSee.
The Thinkpad 25 (based on the Thinkpad 470) has an option to disable the Touchpad in BIOS.
  • The HDD was preinstalled with Windows 10 and it has GPT layout.
  • Secureboot has to be deactivated, UEFI has to be switched to Legacy
The M.2 NVMe SSD hard disk that came with the machine did not had OS/2 drivers at the time of this machine was released. It was replaced with a M.2 SATA card, the 1TB WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SDD M.2 2280 to have it working on OS/2, but please remember that not all M.2 NVMe adapters have SATA compatibility.
ArcaOS 5.0.6
ArcaOS 5.0.6 installation via USB Stick possible, one has to wipe the SSD though.
NVMe SSD hard disk was later tested and reported as working with Arca's NVMe driver.
