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.

hi! try this. reboot your cpu, then press the CMOS setup key (del), then select load default setting, then go to hard disk detection settings, select the LBA setup. I believe you know how to manipulate the CMOS setup configuration. if still doesn't work out, bring it to the service center near you and ask for assistance, Im sure they would love to help you. Have a nice day!

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.

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.

This is one of my favourite and very easy to answer questions.
The CMOS battery is dead OR if the computer has been moved or anyone has been inside then double check that the CMOS clear jumper is in the correct position AND that the battery is seated correctly.
If the jumper is correct and the battery is seated then remove the battery and take it to almost any radio shack, The source or goo watch shop or even walmart for a replacement
TAKE NOTE OF THE POLARITY when removing it
