Question about IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221 PC Desktop
2 IBM Intellistation Pro 6221-GE1
each one same problem.
After a boot, the dreaded "can't find NTLDR"
I tried an auto repair from the XP Pro install disk
then recovery console:
Copy ntldr and detntndr the disk
the disk seems to have all of my data and will show up on other computers. Although, they won't boot other computers either.
nothing seems to work. I ran bcupdate...it said teh drive was already updated.
the only thing that seems to work is if I buy a new drive and format it and install XP on different computer then install the drive in IBM intellistation. This has happened more than once, and I suspect that it will happen again.
You have the solution given the fact that the IBM netloader wants to be subordinant to a loaded OS on a different drive acting as server when used on a thin client like the Intellistation. Unless carried as a portion of the registry of an MS OS, XP or Vista will drop it unless registered with a NetUpdate as a standing part of the registry. But most sysops conduct updates without all clients active so that some will inevitably be dropped, which is why the best strategy is to conduct updates on Off Hours when all clients can be up without human interaction, impossible during the workday, unless you deactivate an entire set of nodes for the purpose.
Run a reregistry while the Intellistation is on and active but without an operator and your problem should disappear more permanently.
