I created a image of an IBM BIOS update disk using rawread and then made it into a bootable CD using Nero.
I tested the CD on my desktop computer and it booted into the BIOS update.
But when I try to boot this disk in the IBM Thinkpad 600, the CD light just keeps on flashing and it will not boot.
I tried a Windows XP CD and it booted.
Why will the Thinkpad recognise the XP CD as a valid CD, yet refuse to recognise the BIOS floppy image CD?

From what you told us, maybe Floppy Emulation isn't supported well enough.

xJulian, can you offer any other ideas?
Would hard disk emulation work?
I use Nero 6 to burn the disk.

I suggest CD Shell to boot (then it's not in emulation mode) with memdisk to run the image (to provide software-based floppy emulation).
(Memdisk doesn't use any floppy emulation specs from the BIOS, does it?)
