ThinkPad T43

This pages gives an overview of all ThinkPad T43 related topics.


ThinkPad T43

  1. Those who have taken apart their T43s or replaced the hard drives noted that the HD is not physically SATA, even though it is supported under Linux as SATA. ref The T43 hardware maintenance manual describes the hard drive as IDE and not SATA.
  2. Word to the wise: the T43 uses a SATA->PATA converter and PATA drives. 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 "Firmware Problems with Seagate 100g Drive on T43" at
