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.

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.

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: When I power up the

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

I have IBM Intellistation Z Pro 6221. I tried to install XP, I press F6 for SCSI driver. Then It prompts Press 'Enter' for install or 'R' for repair. Whatever I press it displays No hard disc detected


You need a floppydisk including the Driver for the SCSI or Sata drive - Depending which HD You are using.
If the controller is in motherboard You will find the driver from motherboard webpages.
If it's a separate controller card - You will find it from it's web pages.
XP doesn't support too well sata if it's not the XP SP3 version media.
You may need to change the sata to compatibility IDE mode to get it up and running.

Ntldr error on ibm intellistation z pro w/ xp pro


During the XP install, you will be given the chance to set up partitions on the drive. Blow them all out. Completely. Then recreate the partition and let XP install. I expect this will solve the nt loader issue. If, however, it does not, then use the recovery approach below to get the required loader files onto your boot partition.

  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "d." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
