I have 2 laptops a fujitsu and a micro-something that i have gotten working in the past and then sold!
    I used a Thinkpad 600 in the picture frame. It is a 230 Mhz processor. Very slow, but ok for this task.
    You might want to double check the CMOS battery on that Thinkpad that has the non-functioning HD controller. My Thinkpad's give strange boot error codes when the CMOS battery is low. Mine said the processor fan was dead and the memory was bad, but that all went away after replacing the $1 battery.

    Peace,
