I have a ThinkPad 390. I have just installed Win2000 on it. The problem I have is a message in a red box that comes up shortly after power on. This is the message:
< Save to Disk file not found
Save to Disk feature is disabled
Run Phdisk for information.
FILE: create new
PARTITION: consult manual
Hit any key to exit >
Then, at the bottom you can: <ESC> to Resume, <F1> to setup.
I can hit ESC and it will boot as normal, so this message is just really little more than a pain in the butt, but I would like to get rid of it.
Here is what I have done so far:
-- Try all BIOS settings, including disabling power management
-- Flash the BIOS with latest update
-- Run Partition Magic to see if there is a hidden partition...there is none.
-- Remove any autoexec.bat and config.sys files (only blank ones were created by Win2000)
-- Researched the Internet to find out how to get rid of this irritating phdisk message to no avail.
This problem has NOTHING to do with the OS. It was there before I installed Win2000 and would be there if I didn't have an OS. Somehow, it seems to be written into the BIOS. I imagine I could crack the laptop open and reset the BIOS, but I'd rather not go that route if there is another solution. Any help is much appreciated.
