Just purchased IBM Intelistation 6221..installing windows????
I have put the windows XP CD in the cd-rom and set BIOS to boot from cd-rom. I pressed F6 and installed "LSI Logic SCSI driver version 1.09.06s for Microsoft Windows XP (Digitally Signed)", no problem it went right to the windows install started loading files it needed. It then states restarting computer, I press F1 and set the hard drive as boot device 1 cd-rom 2nd and floppy as 3. Then save settings and restart, the computer blue screens and says "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in the computer" and then instructions to make sure the hard dicks are powered and installed and to run a manufacturer-supplied diagnostics. I bought these from a surplus store at a major airplane manufacturer in my area and they blanked the hard drives to protect info on them.

Re: Just purchased IBM Intelistation 6221..installing...
try this. reboot your cpu, then press the CMOS setup key (del), then select load default setting, then go to hard disk detection settings, select the LBA setup. I believe you know how to manipulate the CMOS setup configuration. if still doesn't work out, bring it to the service center near you and ask for assistance, Im sure they would love to help you. Have a nice day!

If your computer boots up you should be able to reinstall with your xp os disk, click on your cd drive & choose reinstall or new install, after that you'll probably have to go to windows update & update the system, if that does'nt work you may have to go to bios settings & set the cd rom as your boot devise, restart & install that way, after your done be sure to set the bios to thier default settings.
u have to bootable disk of win xp.then set first boot devicce in bios your dvd rom or cd rom.
then u get message pres any key to boot from cd .wehn u start the ssytem.
then follow the procedure.
then create parttion.
as u like.
thejn simple follow the procedure.
to make cd/dvd drive the primary one..all u gotta do is to configure the bios(press DEL/F1/F2/F10 briskly, as applicable while at the system boot, this'll enter u in the CMOS utility, search for boot Device Priority)..make cd/dvd drive the primary or 1st boot device n 2nd device @ HDD 0..
download n install any boot manager (various are available)..eg. Power quest Boot Magic..it'll b quite useful when u wanna selective startup using Multiple OS like win xp pro sp2+ubuntu..
the best is to install ubuntu first in raw/undefined hdd space next go for xp..
always better to seek professional supervision of ur System admin/vendor....
When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios
During the XP install, you will be given the chance to set up partitions on the drive. Blow them all out. Completely. Then recreate the partition and let XP install. I expect this will solve the nt loader issue. If, however, it does not, then use the recovery approach below to get the required loader files onto your boot partition.
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R"
key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the
"1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password,
enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root
directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we
are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is
"d." This letter may be different on your computer.
Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.
Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.
You have to change it in the bios, press F2 or DEL on startup depending on your bios type.
The bios screen then will have second line of advanced bios settings, in here you need to select the cdrom as the first boot device, by using the up down arrows or pageup/down or '+or-' keys.
Press ESC when cdrom selected and save settings when propmted.
The system will re boot so ensure the cd is in the drive and press enter when prompted to start with cdrom.
