View Full Version : [xubuntu] Installing Xubuntu 8.04 on Thinkpad 600

Hi, I've been having some difficulty lately and would appreciate some input or tips for my problem
I'm installing xubuntu on a thinkpad 600 and during the install I get the following error

>ACPI: BIOS age (1999) fails cutoff (2000), acpi=force is required to enable ACP

So my solution was to upgrade the bios in order to take care of the situation. I do not have a floppy drive so I created a CD boot disk with this how to:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=318789 worked before in flashing the bios of another PC).
In this case there was no Rom explicitly listed so I just copied the BIOS utility from http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/DSHY-3VRJPK.html

When I boot from the boot disk, I use the prompt to execute the bios utility and it seems to work,(I must read through a license) unfortunately a prompt appears telling me to insert a disk into drive b: since I have no floppy drive I can't go any further.
Any tips or nudges in the right direction would be helpful.
