will NT workstation work w/XP?

Q: will NT workstation work w/XP?

I have a customer running a peer-to-peer network in their office using NT workstation on each PC. They now need to replace one of the units and add a new one. Will XP be compatible with their existing setup or will we need to replace it with NT workstation?

Preferred Solution: will NT workstation work w/XP?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Will Adobe Premiere 5.1 work with Dell Precision 380 Workstation?

No problem whatsoever---you wont need raid for editing DV--its really not necessary. Yes your ethernet controler is for your network connections and thus it will be used for the Internet. All routers will run XP and 98. Forget about the integrated audio for any serious audio editing (the forgotten element of video editing) Also, make sure you dont use the sound blaster for you firewire connection----lots of reported problems. Go with a seperate firewire card with a TI chipset.

Last but not least, Premiere 5.1 is not a very stable program----they didn't get it right until version 6.0 so if possible, UPGRADE.

I have the following workstation configuration :

PROCESSOR - Dual (two processors) - Xeon E5520 8M Cache, 2.26 GHz, 5.86 GT/s Intel? QPI

MOTHERBOARD - Intel Workstation board S5520 SC

GRAPHICS CARD - Palit Nvidia GeForce GTX 275 (986 MB) Dual DVI out

RAM - DDR3 1333 MHz 6 GB (G-Skill)

MONITORS - 2 are connected (Samsung Sync Master 2233 & NEC Accusync LCD 224WXM)


The problem with the above configuration is that when I try to install Windows 7, the machine freezes (hangs) randomly, I have tried formatting and installing for at-least 4-5 times now but what happens is the setup doesn't work and stops during installation, last time the setup was successful but it hangs the workstation without any reason. I have also tried installing the same CD on other system and it works fine.

Can anybody help me out with the problem!!!!

Hi all,

In days of yore it was recommended to create a boot disk...just in case. I don't know whether this is still in practice with Windows XP. From what I can see is. I am trying to help out a small law office who is planning to upgrade to xp. I'd planned to write instructions for them for creating their start-up disks. One question I was asked (and couldn't answer) was whether each workstation needed it's own, or if they could just create one boot disk on one workstation and keep it in the safe for all to use.

Does anyone know? Thanks!

A friend of mine runs a preschool and has 3 old P3 computers that the kids use for simple games. He asked me to clean the hard drives and update the OS. Somehow, they have XP Pro installed - illegal copies that cannot be updated. He has disks for NT Workstation – legal copies (two have never been opened). I want to take the illegal OS off and put the legal OS on. So far, I haven’t figured how to do that and going backwards doesn’t seem to be covered when I did a Google search on how to do that. I tried “format c:” from XP and it does not want to do that, even from safemode and a prompt window. I tried booting from the CD drive and the install program for NT Workstation does not know how to do what I want either. Suggestions?

hi all,

i was just wondering what a workstation is. i'm kind of confused over the definition. i've seen dell advertising their Precision line of workstations with all the high end stuff (intel xeon, nvidia quadro, etc.) costing $$$, while i saw an ad at one of my local whitebox stores advertising what they call a workstation which is an intel celeron based system with el-cheapo parts selling for under $400 CDN. i aslo went to a local university library a couple weeks back and the terminals where the library catalogs are put are also call "workstations".

so what is a work station? i just want to know

A:what's a workstation?

In the modern day of marketing common words are stretched to mean anything, no point in getting exited over meanings..

A workstation may mean just about any computing device sitting on your desktop.

It may also mean a powerful personal computer (not only in PC sense) used for engineering and design.

The classical and most correct (IMHO) definition is a non-PC desktop machine, usually running UNIX. Workstations are made by Sun and SGI for example.

A:Workstation or/vs. PC ??

Pentium Deschutes are pentium II chips that started at 300 mhz and ended at 450 mhz, basically obsolete now.

Slot 1 are actually easier to work with, all you have to do is fit them into the slot and put the cartridge retainers into the locked position. Slot 1 cpu's are obsolete and out of production now as well. Makers have gone back to the PPGA/FCPGA package.

Dual motherboards of equal size (say two 450's versus a 900) are a tad bit slower than the single chip version as far as I know.

Only reason I can think of that a workstation is faster is the limited software and applications that are run.

A:VMware Workstation

Hi starcraftmasterVMware Workstation will indeed allow you to run an operating system within another.You say you want to run XP within ME. I am guessing that if you are running ME then perhaps your PC is fairly old and might not be up to running VMware. It would be best to vist their site and check out the system requirements for running it. that you can trial VMware for 30 days before you have to part with your money.There are alternatives to VMwareMicrosoft's Virtual PC is free and can be found here;displaylang=en However it is not supported on ME.Sun's Virtual Box is also free and can be found here Again you will need to check out the system requirements for running it.

My HP Workstation 8000 will not boot. I was downloading a torrent, and then opened the .avi file, and it told me to go to to decrypt the file. I went to the site, didn't download anything, and the computer just froze. (could this be multiple trojans.avi?) I had no option but to turn it off. Now it will not boot, nothing on the monitor, though fans and drives are running. I would have made the HD a slave in another computer to save the data, but no one else seems to have internal SCSI. What can I do? I really don't care about the data anymore I just need the computer to work.

I have Symantec Ghost version 7.5 and am able to ghost Dell Workstations GX-50 and GX-60 model. We have a new shipment of Optiplex SX280 and can not ghost an image of it. We built one workstation and would like to image other workstations from it. The 3.5 diskette ghost disk I made loads the NIC driver, it binds, but then it hangs every single time on the loading. I used the same diskette on the GX-50 or GX-60 model and it works fine. Can anyone tell me why the loading is hanging? Is it because the SX280 is using the ATA instead of the IDE port for the hard drive?

Thanks for any insight.

As an alternative to Ghost you may want to try a program called UDPCast. No messing around with network drivers, great performance, you can clone to multiple hosts simultaneously and it's free.

I'm thinking about buying this to run on my second harddrive. First, Is this a good windows version? Is it comparable to 2000? Is it better than Me? And finally is it worth 15 bucks? Any help with these questions would be great!!!! Thanks for your input!

A:Windows NT Workstation

If you have windows 2000 running on your system, then I personally would not purchase and install windows NT 4.0 unless you want to take a look at it and learn something about it.

It is possible that if your hardware is too new, then you may have problems finding drivers for it. Also NT does not have USB support.

You cannot compare NT to ME they fit different purposes - business vs home.
The righ comparison would be win95 or NT...( but still fit different purposes)

If you would like to upgrade the OS and find something better then ME, then get XP Home.

Well, having 2 Xeon E5s with a weak GPU and little RAM means the PC is aimed at computing tasks, not graphic design. Would you mind building your own machine? It allows for more customization is cheaper, and has a much wider range of options. I am also more familiar with building custom workstations rather than prebuilt (Dell, HP, etc.) workstations. Would you like to build your own or stick with Dell or HP?

A:Problems with xp and my new Workstation

Did you format the drive before install?
Depending on the parameter of the install it may have been doing a repair install
and thus writing all of the old information to another are.
If that was the case and the drive was near full there would be limited space for the new data.

A fresh install on a freshly formatted drive is the best technique.

kindly advise.........thanks with a star

p.s. maybe it has to do with partitioning with NTFS instead of FAT32

A:NT 4.0 Workstation Install

NT4 doesn't support FAT32 at all.

You will need to repartition if you have created a large FAT32 partition. Create the partitions from within the NT4 install and it will allow you to create the largest system partition it can support, which is about 8 Gb for NTFS, and 4 GB for FAT. You can then partition the rest of your HD as a data partition.

If it is not going to be considerably better, I will let that workstation go to someone else and wait another year for the "chance" to ask for what I want.

Everything else about the new workstation (Dell Dimension 3000) is an improvement. My only question is about the video card.

Existing: NVIDIA GeForce 256 AGP (Dell)

New: Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2

Does anyone hve any opinion on the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 card? Is it any good? better/worse than my existing card?

I have a small server with six computer hooked up. All the computers are fine except one. It can accept the server but the server cannot see it. If I try to ping it from the server or another workstation, it says it does not exist. I can ping the server from the workstation fine. The workstation has a printer hooked up to it that other workstations print to but now they cannot see it. If I run ipconfig/release and then renew, it cannot get a new IP address, but if I reboot it, it will get one. IP addresses are dynamic. Does anyone know what is going on? Thanks.

I have a network Linux server and 3 WinXPSP3 workstations. On two of the workstations when I login as user, I am able to change the wallpaper and select folder options (ie classic view in control pannel). On one workstation, I get the blue screen and am unable to change it and cannot select the classic view in control panel. I have even tried to give this user administrative privileges temporarily but still don't have control of the desktop.

Thanks for any suggestions, Dave

I need to lock my desktop so that no one can do anything until a password is entered, that includes logout. I'm in a class where there is not enough computers for the students and every time I get up I risk someone taking my seat.

Here's my problem, I have 4 kids and 1 computer. I sent my computer out to be worked on and was wondering if it was possible to turn it into a workstation so, I can get more then 1 person on it at a time. I've been doing some research and have read about betwin 2000/xp and winconnect server xp. I am looking to see if anyone has ever used these programs and if turning 1 tower into a workstation using windows could be done. If so, how?

Setting up 5 users on your 1 computer, with you as an administrator and your 4 kids as limited users doesn't work for you? Do you want to control 4 computers from your existing system. It is technically already a "workstation"...

I have a PC running XP in my shop that boots to the F8 menu. It will not complete booting using any of the choices. It goes partway, displays the XP loading screen with Safe, Last Known Good and Normal options.

Then it resets itself and goes back to the menu.

What version of XP? According to the COA on the case it's XP Professional.

I've tried a couple of recovery CDs but their utilities to force a System File Check during boot or to use System Restore won't work because they say the installed XP is "not XP" or is Windows NT Workstation.

So I'm fresh out of ideas! I've never seen anything like this with XP. I could use a recovery CD to copy files to an external drive then wipe it and reinstall, but that's the simple yet time consuming way to fix it.

A:XP identifying itself as NT Workstation.

If you have any service packs installed, then you don't have the same operating system any more. If you have SP3 installed, you need the XP SP3 CD to do a system file check. You should have made one when you changed to the new OS or you have no CD to repair with.

XP is a Windows NT workstation.

Does anyone know what the 775 limitations are on this board? I can't access the CPU support and Im not sure of the 45/65nm support? I want to upgrade just the cpu on an old workstation to give 64bit support for more RAM (which I already have). I'd like to put the E5700 Wolfdale in but again, not sure. If anyone can recommend the top 3-4 processors that I can use it would be mucho appreciated.

A:CPU upgrade for workstation

It's not capable of utilizing more than 2GB of RAM, so not sure how you'd potentially need 64-bit to address what it can handle now.

I'd look at upgrading personally, compared with today's technology that motherboard is woefully inadequate and by the looks of things only supports very early LGA 775 processors anyway. You essentially be throwing money at obsolete technology.

A:Dns problems on NT Workstation 4.0


Is the DNS server a local domain server or an external ISP DNS server?

Are you in a domain or a workgroup?

The only thing I can think of, is that the DNS is part of the local domain, but your machine is not logging onto the domain (or does not even have a computer account on the domain), and thus is not being given access to the DNS server.

However, if you are in a Workgroup configuration, and the DNS server is your ISP's DNS server, then I have no idea, excpet perhaps for a slight typing error like instead of

Several months ago, I formatted and reinstalled XP Pro without any problem.

Before I formatted, when I locked the work station a small window popped up saying "this workstation has been locked and can only be unlocked by an administrator or insert-user-name-here etc etc" My question is how do I get that window back instead of the main logon screen?

If you just have the Xfi "MB" option that is ONLY a software enhancement to the Integrated Audio in the PC, It's not a full SoundBlaster Xfi sound "card". I'm not sure what all the software enhancement does. I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum but it's primarily with Desktops, and very little with Laptops. The Xfi MB software is strictly an OEM product and Creative (SoundBlaster) does not offer any support or software updates.

That 1774, if it is the correct model number, must be a new model as it's not listed in the Dell downloads yet as I wanted to check on the actual sound module used (e.g. RealTek or IDT).

I would not go for an Opteron processor as they are meant more for servers than desktops. For a build like this, you would either be looking at the AMD 8350 flagship or an Intel I7 4xxx.. The main difference is that Intel is faster on single-threaded tasks (that is the major difference), but AMD is ever so slightly faster on some multi-threaded tasks...

A:4790k Workstation Problems...

I'm confused... So is this editing rig running Win 7 or Win 10? If it's running Win 10, you might try going back to older Win 8.1 graphic driver. I'd suggest uninstalling your current driver with DDU and reinstalling Win 8.1 driver 344.75 or 347.88. Also make sure your chipset driver is up to date and any other drivers that might have been updated for Win 10 from your motherboard manufacturer.

When I have my old server(winserver2003), all my clients is set-up to automatic IP, and it works all fine,
When my old server had crash, I've acquire another server(winserver2008), then all my clients can't pick up an IP address, therefore they can't connect to our network. But, if I set the IPs manualy, then I can join the network & it work fine.

My IP range is xxx.17.48.2 - xxx.17.48.250
My router address is xxx.17.48.1
My Domain server address is xxx.17.48.180
where xxx is the same.

I have set it to Specifiy IP Address
I have set up the DNS services
Nothing on the Wins
Nothing on the routing

Where do I go from here or can someone point me to a FAQ on the net. Any help would be much appreciated.


A:{Resolved} - NT Workstation 4.0 and Netware 4.11

More info please.

What happens in NT? Do you not see the netware server in the 'hood? Does it give an error when you try to access it?

What protocol are you using for netware in your 9x machines?

I'm building out a new Hornet Pro custom graphic workstation which is a little bigger than a SFF but takes a micro u-ATX mobo. The workstation will be used primarily for Maya, After Effects, and Premier.Which of the following mobo's would you suggest?

ASUS A8N-VM CSM GeForce 6150/SATA3G/u-ATX 939

Gigabyte GA-K8N51 GMF9 NF4

EVGA 131-K8-NF44-AX NF4 W/ SLI


Should I scrap the SFF plan altogether and go with a tower w/ an
ASUS A8N 32 SLI Deluxe mobo? Oh, the decisions!

THe Workstation specs are :
400 W PS
AMD Opt 175 dual core 2.2
4GB OCZ Dual Channel Platinum (400)
Maxtor Diamond Max 10 7,200 16 MB Cache 300 GB
Quadro FX 3400 256MB


A:Building New Workstation (mobo help)

I'd go with the first Asus board, but if you're using the machine primarily for graphic rendering, buy a good workstation video card....Matrox makes some very good ones. Ati also makes some good workstation cards as well. You'll have to research which will best fit your needs. When it comes to that type of work, it's a driver issue. The cards you mentioned do not have drivers that will give you the ultimate performance for your machine. They're good for gaming, but that's it.

And Maya is a pig when it comes to pulling resources, especially when you're doing a 24hr. render. Get a card with as much video memory as you can afford.

Hope this helps.

Hello, We are having an employee who has been getting a few bluescreens lately. I thought it was due to the NVidia drivers, but an update didn't seem to make much of a difference. New to this forum so I am attaching the dump in case anyone is able to diagnose any further. Thanks in advance for your help.

I would like to use my 500 GB HDD to use to allocate virtual storage for my virtual machines rather than my much more limited SSD storage. This possible?

A:Stop VMWare Workstation From Using SSD?

Of course. When creating the Virtual HDD save it to the location you want. In fact setup VMware's default location for Virtual Machines where you want. Its in the options.

please help me , how to reset kaspersky antivirus 6 workstation for 30 days (what is the method to reset trial period)

if some one want this version of kaspersky to try how reset trial period, i have not problems for uploading this version in upload websites.

A:for experts in kaspersky 6 workstation

After a 30-day trial period, most software vendors require you to purchase a license or remove their product. In many cases, the features will be disabled so the software is not much use in keeping. I'm not aware of any way to legally reset a trial period. If you encountered an issue before the trial expired and were not able to use the anti-virus then you need to contact Kaspersky Lab Support for assistance.If the trial period has expired and you just want to reset it in order to continue using, then we cannot offer assistance that would circumvent the procedures a software vendor has implemented in offering a free trial to users.

I've done a clean install of windows 10 Pro but am now unable to get internet on a guest VM on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 . I just get a yellow ? Ethernet controller in device manager.
I tried my legal copies of Windows Me and Windows 3.11 and can get internet on them fine.

Everything was working fine when I had Windows 8.1 as a host.


A:VMWare workstation 11 no internet.

Try re-installing VMware. If that doesn't work, make sure that the firewall on host computer isn't blocking VMware, then update or install VMware Tools in the VMs. (I could give you step-by-step instructions but I'm sure you won't need them)

Hello Guys, Hope you all are fine.

I want to install some of the programs and OS that I want to test before installing them on my actual computer. But, here I am confused between the two Virtualization Products:-

1) Oracle VM VirtualBox 4.2.16

2) VMware Workstation 9.0.2

Both of these are popular and will work flawlessly but my question is that which would be more better to work. I know that VBox is free and is GNU whereas VMware is expensive but I am ready to pay for it if its better.

Please help me and tell which I should use.

I need the following qualities:-

1) Easy to use User Interface
2) Reliable
3) Work Flawlessly
4) Should not decrease my Host Performance
5) Should have a good Graphics Acceleration


A:Which Is Better VirtualBox Or VMware Workstation 9

There are tons of articles on this one. Google it: Workstation vs VirtualBox
Here's a recent one:
Review: VMware Workstation 9 vs. VirtualBox 4.2 | Virtualization - InfoWorld

Each time, Workstation wins overall due to the stability, reputation and features it has + you get better performance at cpu and gpu in a VM.

VirtualBox would win the host performance section because it doesn't slow the host (or the least slowdown you can get): no services are installed at all and of course also the best price tag which is free. For the rest, go to Workstation's features. All VirtualBox VM's are usually fast.

Workstation has just a minor impact on performance (due to a lot of features + services) and with modern hardware this isn't a problem at all. Workstation VM's are usually more advanced if you consider the different hardware versions (to choose from) and so many system resources propped in a VM when needed.

On Workstation you also have the best graphic acceleration of the two and drag and drop exists (VBox still works at dnd and is experimental for Linux only at the moment).

If by the way you also need real stretched full screen the you'll need Workstation for its "exclusive mode".
VirtualBox has something called "scale mode" but the graphics still have issues in this mode.

In the end Workstation Unity Mode integrates best between host and guest.

Something I didn't found much about online yet:
Workstation's UEFI mode supports also Windows so you can have UEFI in a VM even if the host is legacy MBR.
VirtualBox UEFI doesn't support Windows yet. You can still install OS X and Linux though.

If you are using VMWare Workstation with Windows 8.1 you will have to reinstall it. I attempted a repair first but that didn't work so I removed and reinstalled, and now all is working just fine. VMWare player worked without having to do a reinstall. . . good luck.

A:Windows 8.1 and VMWare Workstation

I did an uninstall/reinstall of VMWare Player 5.0.2 after upgrading Windows 8 to 8.1.
VMWare and the VMs ran OK but the Windows upgrade messed up the virtual network adapters.

The upgrade to Windows 8.1 also reset many of the preferences in my local user account, including such things as File Explorer settings, RDC default folder, Send To items, etc.
Overall relatively painless, but probably a bit confusing and frustrating for anyone non-technical, as once again the upgrade attempts to force you into creating a new online user account.

I run almost everything in VMs though, the only software installed on the Windows 8.x host is MS Office HS 2007, VMWare, and WinZip. So I wasn't expecting too much difficulty with the upgrade.

So far I do like the upgrade changes though...

I have an HP dual Xeon 2.8 workstation which I have used for a number of years running WIN 2000. I want to do a fresh install with WIN XP Pro but when the install CD looks at the system it tells me "there are no hard drives installed in this computer." This computer is an all SCSI system and HP uses LSI Logic for control. Evidently, there no drivers that WIN XP Pro recognizes. I have visited HP tech support but get lost in the maze of stuff there. (I did download their drivers for SCSI for WIN XP but that didn't work when I inserted with F2 or F6.) If anybody can help me with a simple 1, 2, 3, etc. process I will greatly appreciate it.
