Question about IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6218 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can Windows 7 run reasonably well on a IBM Intellistation M Pro 6218? That is, does it have adequate horsepower for basic stuff, or undemanding CAD work.

I'm considering buying more RAM for it and a Windows 7 install disk, but I won't if it's just not worth it. I don't expect fast; I just want not painfully slow or full of glitches.

I would not recommend this. The latest bios is from 2006. This machine would be under-powered for running Win7 and I'm not finding drivers for Win7

Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.

SOURCE: Intellistation Dreaded "ntldr not found"

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.

SOURCE: Upgrade Intellistation Z Pro 6121 w11 to 64bit Xeon Processors

It helps if you give the right specification - the W11 is the 6221, not the non-existent 6121.
You have 2 x 2.4 Xeon in a Socket 604 package. The only CPUs these could be are the Tigerton - it certainly does support 64-bit operation, as well as VT.
You have little choice in processors - Tulsa, Tigerton and Dunnington.
The Tigerton is a little ripper! 2 x 4MB on-die cache, 1066 internal FSB, wide voltage range and low power consumption (80W).

You have a 4 processor 64-bit box - if it isn't poweful enough for you (and I can't see why - I run 50 concurrent VM users on less), you can only go to the 2.93 Tigerton as an upgrade. The other CPUs have more horsepower, less torque!
Don't get hung up on processor speed - for 64-bit big cache rules.

IBM INTELLISTATION M PRO does not power up


Have you tried any troubleshooting? It is most likely the System board or power supply. You could take a known good power supply and swap it out to see if it will turn on, if not it's the system board.

Beeping & no display


beeping at boot means different things. google beep codes if you have another pc?. could be ram failure, processor, mobo failure , etc. Or..it could be a flat battery-which can stuff up the bios and wont boot. So check the mobo batt isnt flat first and reset the mobo bios- jumper pin. Hope that helps.

IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221NNG upgrade possiblity


This: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/get/system-requirements.aspx is a link to the system requiements. As for memory, I can't find out if it's DDR or DDR2. If you don't know either, try downloading a tool called CPU-Z. That should display DDR or DDR2, and I can then recommend something.
As for the graphics card, you could try to get an ATi 9000 series card somewhere.(maybe buy one on ebay? I doubt they still sell them new...) I have one too, in an old PC, and while it doesn't run any new games, it's fast enough for the casual user.
