I have the same problem. with a Thinkpad 570 model 2644
Small disk "original IBM 6.3G" has 98 on it which boots.
Have tried to install 98, 98second edition, and Windows 2000.
On a larger hard disk.
On first boot after setup/winnt windows fails to boot.
"Invalid system disk.\n Replace the disk, and then press any key"
If I move drive to another PC .. Setup 98/2000 continues.
If I sys a: c: on another PC to make it boot to 98se dos.
Then put the drive back in to TP570 it will boot to dos again.
but another install on 98 or Windows 2000 causes same problem.
Have loaded smartdrv.exe before installs.
Have also run chkdsk. as well as fdisk /mbr.
Have tried 2,4,6, and 8 gbyte primary partitions.
But size of primary partition has no effect on windows not installing
