IBM ThinkPad T61
SATA and Linux
If there are boot problems, try going from AHCI to compatibility in the BIOS. I don't really know what is going on here, but my computer works in compatibility, I haven't tried AHCI.

If, like me, you chose the free upgrade, well, that sucks for you, there are no drivers. Ndiswrapper can work, but make sure you use the NETw4x32 drivers, the others won't work.
Hwd did not do the monitor widescreen (1200x800) properly, and it was instead doing 1024x768. In xorg.conf, here is the relevant section:
Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Card0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultColorDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Depth 24 Modes "1200x800" EndSubSection EndSection
I just used vga=773 and it doesn't look too bad.
Driver works great, even with composite enabled.
Don't have it, so cannot say.

To save time, I believe all the T61 hidden partitions are /dev/sda1. I haven't really tried any of this.
