#The T43 uses a SATA->PATA converter and PATA drives. This seems to apply to the T43p also.  Unfortunately, the drive's firmware is modified by IBM for performance and stability reasons. In general, you can install a non-IBM branded HD as the primary drive, but it will give a warning at boot time.  See [http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t<nowiki>=</nowiki>11059 Firmware Problems with Seagate 100g Drive on T43].

  1. While the physical disk is PATA (IDE), it is accessed through a SATA controller and a SATA-to-PATA bridge. It thus appears as a SATA device to the operating system, which causes some problems under Linux. The SATA-to-PATA bridge also necessitates drive firmware changes, causing a problem with non-ThinkPad hard disks.
