Our Intellistation 6223-6GU workstation, purchased 4 years ago has been powered up for first time, and immediately showed power supply problems, (I believe it has 530 watt AC 120/230 volt power supply). I see from your web pages that this is a continuing problem with Z-Pros. Any source to replace or fix?

Re: Problems with Intellistation 6223 Power Supply?
As this is the first time powering up, check the 115/230V switch on the back of the machine to ensure it is set properly. Then if you're ok going inside the PC follow each cable to it's connector and make sure all are connected firmly then try to start the pc again. If this doesn't work it's likely a dud.
These power supplies are cut to a funny shape so you do have to replace them via IBM. You can take it to any IBM service center or got to:
check for part exchange discounts and then submit, on the next page it will ask for the IBM part # which will be on a sticker on the power supply. The part is fairly easy to swap out if you're at all handy with a screw driver. If you're not, call the 800 number on the above page and ask them for the closest service center.

As you have Type 6223 which a Xeon faster than 1GHz it should work with Windows 8 but not all Xeon processors are compatible depending on which one you have. See this Microsoft site after you check your Xeon chip family on the motherboard or through the Windows system command. Search for xeon.

Hi, Here is the link to your system BIOS tools and updates: http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/supportresources?categoryind=5050379&selectedButton.x=12&selectedButton.y=13&selectedButton=category&familyind=5050008&brandind=5000004&osind=5053379&typeind=5178890&modelind=0&matrix=Y&taskind=2
Yes. you can use any mixture of different interfaces a PC. As long as you have the appropriate controller interface to plug the drive into, and your power supply is big enough to support the drive(s) you're using, there should not be a problem.
The only caveat is that if you want to boot from a drive type that is not part of the PC bios, this may not work.
Such as if the bios is so old that it only has IDE and you plug in a SATA or SCSI adapter, it may take some fiddling to make it boot properly. Many interface adapters have their own bios, and sometimes things are not as compatible as they should be.
