Here is the download page from IBM support. All the drivers you need for your PC. Reinstall Windows if that's what you plan on doing then you can save those drivers onto a USB thumb drive or burn them to a cd. Install on the PC and reboot and thats it.

If I understand you correctly, you need drivers before you reload this laptop?

If this is the case, then you will need a USB flash drive large enough to hold all of your drivers and driver software (a 2GB thumbdrive should do just fine) and go to this link from another computer:

all you have to do is select your model and all of the drivers you will need will be listed for whichever OS you decide to load.

Let me know if that helps.

    Here's a list of other things you will need if you don't already have them:



    Windows Installation Disk (XP HOME/PRO or VISTA). Your laptop should have a COA from mircosoft on the bottom of the unit, just use that code and the version of windows it references.



    Flash drive with all of your drivers that you downloaded.



    Another USB flash drive, one that will be large enough to hold anything you wish to backup. Another poster mentioned that and it is a good idea to do that before blowing a laptop or desktop away.

Just reinstall your windows XP on your IBM R50. Also format your Hard Disk but please remember to back-up your Data first. Use windows XP SP2 CD to do all this and if you don't have the serial Key, use this; RHKG3-8YW4W-83M4Y-4RHJG-7X9GW.
After that, download all the drivers from this Link and install them. Click here below:

How to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400


The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

Good Luck

IBM server dc can't boot due to system32\drivers\pci.sys missing


You mention on boot that the server shows a logical drive of 158GB, which obviously means the server is detecting the drives ok.

Quite often Windows doesn't have the correct drivers to support systems using RAID controllers such as IBM ServerRaid, so this is probably why the setup CD states "No HDD detected, press F3 to reboot". When the Windows Setup CD Boots, it should at some point (on the blue screen) at the bottom of the screen state something like "Press F6 to load additional drivers". If you can get the correct drivers from IBM website, and load them by pressing F6, Windows should be able to see the drives ok. Hopefully it will then be able to successfully repair the error.
