Um, I was just comparing specs, sorry. The T430 seems to be unsupported.
Also I guess, it would only be one or two days of work, I wouldn't con-

come with the shitty NVIDIA Optimus graphics).

I haven't tried (don't even have the system), but I wouldn't expect any
trouble with a reduced ME image. It's more chipset than board specific,
