When I boot one of the ThinkPad T43s at the office, this text appears on the screen:
2010: Warning: Your internal hard disk drive (HDD) may not function correctly on this system. Ensure that your HDD is supported on this system and that the latest HDD firmware is installed. Press
I press F1, Windows XP boots, and everything seems OK, but I worry about it nonetheless.
According to Lenovo support, this is a known issue, and it's not a big deal--they just want you to know that some utilities might not work with your hard drive. Other people report frustration with the error message and wish Lenovo would offer complete support for all hard drives.
I'm going to ignore the problem for now and hope for the best.
