Question about IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6868 PC Desktop
When I try installing XP on my IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6868, after it asks me to press F8 to accept the settings it gives me this blue screen
Call your hardware vendor for support
** The System has halted***
I have restarted on several occasions and it gives me the same error
I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.
It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.
I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.
