IBM T42: Windows XP, Linux, or OS/2? (And question about screws)

  • 1.  IBM T42: Windows XP, Linux, or OS/2? (And question about screws)

    Posted Tue February 01, 2022 05:22 PM
    So, I recently received a free T42 from a family member, and I replaced the hard drive with an IDE to mSATA SSD adapter and a 120 GB SSD. My concern is whether I should restore Windows XP (the original OS), install a Linux distribution, or install OS/2. I want it to feel authentic, as if it were used by the prior owner right out of the box.

    Also, does anyone have a schematic showing which screws go where on the T42's bottom? I have a handful that don't seem to belong, and I believe several are missing.
