|This is an Old System barely meeting the minimum requirement for WinXP.|
I assume it has CD-ROM drive; without that you cannot install any OS other than Win95!
Do you know its BIOS version?
It will definetely need the latest BIOS.
You need an AC adapter and a charged battery pack to Flash BIOS to the most current level.
1. After connecting the AC adapter, Shut Down the Laptop
2. Press and hold the F1 key, then turn on the computer. Hold the F1 key until the Easy-Setup menu appears.
3.If a password prompt appears, you could be in trouble!A forgotten supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility.

Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty." [/UNQUOTE]
