Question about DigiPoS Systems (DGPP04R1NN2W) PC Desktop
I was given a DigiPos PowerPos and attempted to install Windows XP Home Edition as the OS. I have no CD-ROM on this system so I installed a working copy of XP to the 20GB hard drive that came with the system. I reinstalled it into the DigiPos but I continually given BOOT options (Start windows norally, Safe Mode, ETC...). When I select any one of these options it restarts the entire system and runs the same routine again and again. I have disabled the DISK ON CHIP as I am only trying to use it as a simple desktop PC to get onto the Internet. Do you offer this sort of help?
P.S. I've tried various BIOS options but am completely open to any new advice.
Google the name of your system.Go to the homepage,download the PDF and decide whether you will go further.The specs point out there is an IDE port on the board to connect a CD to.XP must be installed on the system you are using or one with the same motherboard to stop people copying it to hardrives and then using it on any or several systems.While you are there you may want to find out if XP can be installed on the system because it only mentions support for 98 ME & 2000 with the USB.Looks like you can carry it in your back pocket too.Have fun with your new project.Geoff

So if I get your scenario straight, you installed xp on the drive in another computer? That won't work. Windows 98 it worked fine, windows would just reinstall all the system drivers but with XP it won't work unless the chipsets are the same and even then it's iffy. You need to install a cd drive to the POS system for the sole purpose of installing windows xp. All you need to do is get an IDE cable with two ports on it, plug one into the cdrom drive (make sure it is jumpered to slave) and one into the HD (master), plug it into the ide port on the motherboard, install XP, then you can remove it when finished.
