Processor upgrade causes computer not to boot

Hello.I have bought an IBM Intellistation M Pro Type 6219-12G model with serial number5500213B. Back then when I had bought it I could not afford a more expensive 6219-42x model with the P4 Northwood 3.06Ghz 533 Fsb 512KB Cache. Today having in mind from back then that I would be able to do it I bought the cpu brand-new separately and I am trying to install it. I went through and made the buy because I had checked in ibm 71p9918-113.pdf page 113 that besides being the same type M Pro the 6219 and all they also shared the same system board with FRU no 24P7527. I should mention here that I have checked from Intel that the intel E7205 chipset of this system board supports the processor I try to install. My microprocessor is the 533/2.4-512 FRU 48P7684 and I am trying to install the 533/3006-512 FRU 24P7636. The obvious thing was to upgrade the bios and I have done this to the newest one I found the 1.31 version. But my problem is that the computer powers on the led indicating that the computer is on stays lit also the led that indicates that the hard disk works stays permanently on the fan start and yet my computer does not move a muscle. I see no bios logo I never get round to entering the bios setup I have no signal in the display and in general the computer does not boot at all.When I put back the 2.4Ghz processor the computer works just fine as always.Perhaps there are some jumpers that I have to attend to. Could it be that it is a VRM (Voltage Regulator Module) issue which by the way I am not very familiar with. Could it be that I have to put an older bios due to some known hang problems with the newest one I have installed. I desperately need your help. Many thanks in advance.Regards Konstantinos Tsokanis.

You seem to be on the right track here. I would look at the documentation that came with your new CPU and note the voltages it requires, Here is the link to the Maintenance manual for your motherboard. http://www-304.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-45692&brandind=5000008

IBM Intellistation z 6221-3m8 computer


It will run faster only if the applications are multi-threading capable. Nearly all older apps cannot take advantage of multi-threading, but some of the newest apps are starting to be coded to take advantage of multiple cores/threads. You may also have to update the OS for it to recognize the second core.

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).
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=30779
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.

Intellistation e pro acts as if booting, but doesn't


Its nothing but the port of your display cable in computer tower and the display card. If its inbuilt (on board) display card then the slot where the extention is linked. If you can then just open the tower and change the slot of the display card. 100% gurantee it would work.

Windows won't boot after an OS upgrade


The board is probably good but I've seen this many times when folks try to upgrade old computers. The drivers included with XP aren't working on your machine. It's not working with W2K because when you formatted the HD with XP it removed the IBM label from the HD. You should use your recovery disks to restore the drive.

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

System:
IBM 6868 52A M-Pro Intellistation
2 x Intel P3 866 CPU's 256 mb cache
2 GB ECC RD Ram
2 x Seagate 320 GB 8MB Cache HDD on a Sunix ATA133 PCI Raid Card
2 x Seagate 10000 rpm SCSI HDD on Adaptec Raid Card
ATI 9520 AGP 128mb Graphics

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.
