Finally got to install FreeSlack64-14.2, on my Certificated RYF Thinkpad X200.

All goes well, the only issue is lilo. You will need to activate Grub, then the system will boot properly.

Your X200 has Libreboot which already contains GRUB and there's no need to install it in FreeSlack. It's sufficient to create a /boot/grub/libreboot_grub.cfg file.
LiLo won't work, since it uses BIOS functions (at least that's what I read in a statement of a Libreboot developer) and your Thinkpad has no BIOS anymore (that's why it has the FSF certificate).

I replaced the BIOS with Libreboot on my TP X200 in July 2015.
