ThinkPad T60 support
Found a fellow ThinkPadder with legacy MBR BIOS (although W500) here who said v1.0.23 or lower worked for him. I tried 1.0.23 just now, but that did not work for me, either.

I tried few other things in the meantime, too, like swapping location of USB key, removing HDD, etc. that I found in forums, none of these things seemed to help.

I guess I keep trying...

Thank you for reply.

I tried just now with a different USB stick (some cheap red one from Micro Center). Same result (did not work). I don't think I have any other kinds (only these 2 kinds) around here, but I will look some more.

The information is buried in my long thread at ThinkPad forums, but these other USB stick I prefer to use (Kingston DataTraveller DTSE9) are recognized, but only when I put a Debian Live CD on them (which uses Isohybrid). I cannot seem to get anything else to work. I am not sure if that means the USB stick should be OK, or not.

Also, T61 is different chipset from T60 (which may or may not matter).

rufus for example, or ultraiso for Strelec, or yumi
have you tried to change the usb port to connect usb flash?

I do not have Windows environment easily available to me. I prefer (by far) to stick with GNU/Linux anyway. But maybe I should try something else, even if just for troubleshooting purposes.

I did try different physical USB ports (as mentioned in previous post, looks like we were cross posting near same time Smile ).
