Thank you my friend, but only the version 1.73 can help me. I tried with version 1.69 but it cannot create the appropriate unit serial number in the bios. As I understand from the hardware manual too, only version 1.73 can help for T42 and T42p Thinkpad. alti2005 at hotmail dot com. thanks again. Anybody can help??

somebody changed my board card - who did this for you and why didn't they reset the system UID and serial number?

You can use this file for your T42:

maint172.exe

Hi, because I bring it back to the person who sold it to me, when I had trouble with the finger print sensor. So, I don't know what he did (He has a small shop for laptops), but right now, in the BIOS, there are no uuid (only 00000-000….) and no unit serial number (empty field). HMD version 1.72 created the uuid for me, thanks. But when I tried to put the unit serial number that is in the bottom of the laptop, I cannot. The serial number for Thinkpad T42 is 14 characters and version 1.72 of HMD created only 12 characters for me and I lose the two first digits!!. Thank you to help me finish this issue. What is the problem? May be I did not use it correctly or may be only version 1.73 can create serial number with 14 characters and this is what I suspect.

Hi, I am the one who sent you the Maint. Disk via your hotmail account.

IBM says that v1.71 or later can be used for T40, T41 & T42.

The first question I would ask is:
You are not trying to enter the dashes ("-") as part of the System Unit Serial Number?

ex.: Computer with Type 2373-311 and S/N 99 -AVxxx

You would enter 237331199AVxxx

Hope this helps.
