 Hi Zed,
>From what you write, it seems you have Linux installed now by a different approach.  If you're happy there's no need to go further.
If you're still curious, I'd try booting another machine with the 'Gecko' drive, and try another known good USB drive on the Thinkpad.

highlighted oprion and the machine boots from it.

My apologies for the misinformation.
