Question about DigiPoS Systems (DGPP04R1NN2W) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Want to run XP Home Edition on my DigiPos PowerPos.

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.

    Extremely Helpful to you and everyone else. I am new to this so I hope I did not mess up the ratings as you all were helpful. Prior to my post I had attempted to install a cd-rom using a master and slave configuration but the IDE connection is smaller than you conventional connection one would find on a generic motherboard; strange. I will search a few stores to see if they can accomodae me with this particular size IDE plug.

    Thanks again for taking me seriously; I just like tinkering around.

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.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating.

If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Then any attempt to install XP will be disasterous! You can thank Microsoft for this bit of chicanery.They want you to stay with Vista and so the boards fitted do not accept XP drivers

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You
