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.

It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

Hi. I was given a computer with a dead HDD. I replaced the HDD but I need to install a copy of Windows XP Home Edition. I have a valid license but no software. The computer was purchased new with XP...


The best advice anyone can give you is to contact Microsoft at:

http://www.microsoft.com

If you have a valid license, Microsoft should provide you with a legal copy of the OS. No one at FIXYA is going to provide you with a copy of a Microsoft OS, because that would constitute piracy. Contact Microsoft directly and we can all avoid the legal problems of engaging in criminal activity.

Good luck; please let us know how this turns out.

Greetings I have a friend who has windows xp home edition and I need to find out where the ram specs are on that os as I am using a different Os...need some assistance


To find out how much RAM is currently installed on the Windows XP Home computer, right click on My Computer (either from the Start menu or desktop) and choose Properties. In the General tab it will tell you how much RAM is currently installed. To find out how much RAM you can install and what speed it has to be, go to Crucial.com and run their free memory scanner.

I need to know how to install Windows XP on Mac. Thank you!


The easiest, and my personal favorite, is to use Parallels Desktop for Mac:
http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/

If you're not into desktop virtualization (running an OS inside of another OS at the same time), you can do something called dual boot, in which you'll have the option after you turn the computer on to use either Windows XP or Mac. You'll have to reboot everytime you want to switch, though.

Remember to keep a current backup of your data before attempting a Windows XP installation.

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.

Attempt to turn on computer, no OS install windows


Marginal hard drive, hard drive cable, or hard drive controller (on motherboard).

Other suspect parts may be the CD ROM drive you're trying to run the OS install from. It may also be flaky, causing you to think you're loading the OS, but not really and not reporting errors until you discover the OS is not completely installed.

First thing to do is pull the HDD and cable out, reseat firmly and try again. May as well do the same for the CD/DVD drive.
