Installation instructions for the ThinkPad T30
Specific installation notes for the ThinkPad T30.
Boot from USB
You can boot a T30 from a USB flash drive. Insert a bootable USB flash drive into the T30 before turning it on. Start the laptop, and press <F1> to go into the setup menu. Under "Startup" configure the startup device. The USB flash drive will appear under "Hard Drive" (not "Other Device"). Use <F5> to give the USB flash drive priority over the internal hard disk drive.
(Confirmed with Fedora 17 LXDE Spin.)
