- Thinkpad A31 problem

The time has come for me to do a complete rebuild. For some reason my TP A31 will not
accept the F11 to restore the system. IBM support did send me a pair of restore CDs.
However it seem that these support Win98, not the XP Pro that came with the used laptop.
Does anyone know if this model came with XP Pro or Windows 98?
Re: Thinkpad A31 problem
What do you mean by "support W98, not XP Pro"? There's no "support"
involved, the CDs contain a complete recovery of the OS that shipped with
your system when it left the factory, either W2K, XP Pro or XP Home in the
case of the A31 or A31p.
What's the model number of your A31? The first CD in the recovery set will
state what OS it contains, what does it say?
