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 online...it 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!
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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
if its the same win xp pro cd (same serial) then it should work with all of them. but it also wouldnt hurt to make discs for all of them.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/67030/should-an-xp-boot-disk-be-created-and-can-workstation-as-boot-workstation-b/
So I rebooted the win7 workstation went to login to it normally with the users credentials and it acts like its a new user login everything is default all pst's, docs, favs, everything is gone .

I have a P50 with i7-6820, M2000M, 16GB. If I have the laptop docked and restart or cold boot it will not boot, fans spin up very high and screen stays black. I can turn off or unplug monitors when its like this and it doesn't help, the caps lock or numlock key won't change, as if its not POSTing at all.If I dock when it's asleep, hibernating, or on, it works fine. The only thing that works is undocking, holding power button down, powering on, and redocking.I have a USB Hub (Dell P2715Q USB with Webcam/speakers plugged into it) and dual 4k monitors. One 4k monitor is on display port on the dock and other is on Thunderbolt 3 to DP adapter. Is anyone else having this issue, is it known or planned on being fixed?

My husband has a HP xw6400 Workstation running Windows 7 Home Premium. Last night, the when powering up the PC, it posted this error message:HP Ethernet boot agent v 8.3.9928 Non-fatal uncorrectable FBD error on DIMM in mother slot XMM2M13 Err non-retry on redundant retry FDD memory alert on redundant set timeoutM21 Err motherboard CRC error on FBD sync status (slightly #48)If you hit f1, the machine will continue to boot into Windows 7 & appears to work fine. The machine has 8GB RAM, a 250GB hard drive for the C drive, a 2TB hard drive I installed for storage, a PCI soundcard I install from my husband's old PC. This error message appeared AFTER I installed the sound card & 2nd hard drive.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong & how I can fix it?
I'd think it's a possible weakening CMOS battery.
When the CMOS battery begins to die...net affect on the system can vary...various error messages may appear, all relating to hardware...system clock may need resetting...BIOS can defautl to network boot whereby O/S was installed by manufacturer.
The CMOS battery is a $5 item, available just about anywhere selling electronic/computer batteries (Walmart, KMart, etc.).
I would try replacing the current one.
I'm going to install these two operating systems on a single hard drive and want to know the best way to go about doing it with the least amount of problems. I'll be using Red Hat Linux 7.0. Which one should I install first? Do you know of any problems that I should anticipate? Any help would be great. Thanks.
There are some good articles on dual booting on the net. I'd first look at Reuel's documentation on dual booting:
Also take a search on MS Technet site:
On my multi-boot system I created a c: partition and installed dos 6.22 on it. I made it big enough too act as the shared swap file for each OS. Then installed NT/2000 first then Linux.
well as my title state I have a small question and I'm not sure where to post this...

I am using a co-workers workstation, because mine will not boot.
I ran spybot (in an effort to dump commonname) and the program asked me to re-boot.
When I did that, I got a LSASS error; (prior to the logon screen)
"The instruction at 0X77F82D8F referenced memory at 0X00000004.
The memory could not be read. Click OK to terminate the program.
So I click OK
Then I get a WINNT\AUTHORITY error

So I cannot even log in.

I have a dead 6 gig drive on a IBM 300gl used to work in a machine shop hooked up to run a machine. The software will only run
on an nt workstation. How do I format a small hard disk to run on nt os on this computer?
As long as the computer supports booting from a CD, just insert your NT disk and restart [after you have installed the new hd] Setup starts and shows you the drive; choose what type of file system ie FAT or ntfs. If the system does not support booting from a cd, then you will have to use the four [I think] setup floppies. It has probably been at least 13yr since I have installed NT and this is from memory so it may or may not be completely accurate.
Finding a hard drive that will work with that old of a computer is going to be an issue. Most likely it is limited to 10gig or so and those are just not made any longer.
Here is a technet article that might help you;

It looks like something to do with my pagefile or the system that activates it. I am getting 2000 to 4000 page writes per second when I start a program. I tried setting the page file to zero, restarting, then restoring it, but to no effect (I could not find the pagefile.sys file to delete it as some people suggested). I even tried Sysinternals pagefile defrag tool.
I would love further suggestions.

I think if you don't want to reinstall then you could try booting the laptop with a Linux live cd/usb and renaming/deleting bootdefragdriver.sys and seeing if that helps

I just reformatted a dell dimension L866R and changed the windows to xp pro. Since changing the boot order in the BIOS this message will appear. When you press any key the message just keeps repeating itself in a loop.
When you put the windows cd and don't boot from the disk windows will come up. I cannot access the BIOS to try and change the boot order which I think that it might be.
Previously the computer had windows 98SE but the video drivers would be recognized. Decided to upgrade to newer windows version.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Why can't you access BIOS?

and I'm not talking about a good answer. ANY response at all would have been appreciated.
My original post, titled Vista will not boot - Unmountable Boot Volume - Won't Boot from Disk Either seemed like it would be the kind of posting that would have elicited some response - Can't boot normally, in safe mode, or last good configuration. AND, can't boot from a genuine Microsoft Vista Home Basic disk.
So I inserted an old HP Windows XP OS CD into the machine, and booted to the recovery center, where I selected to install XP. I formatted the drive, and then ejected the disk. I then put the Vista disk in, and booted from it.
Presto, it worked. This time it actually took me to the Vista Repair / Install page.
I deleted the partition, entered the product key and re installed Vista.
It is now working beautifully.
Thanks for your help.
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?
my workstation has been redirected. And it is like remote is trying to takeover. I must have left something open.
Hi laps12 and Welcome !
Could you provide additional information. What are the redirects? What do you mean by "remote is taking over". Have you tried any scans?
Anybody know where I can get the drivers / servicepack etc so that I can get USB to work on an NT 4 system?? Tried MS KBase but can't seem to hit the nail right on the head ( all around it tho, )

Offically Microsoft doesn't support USB ports on NT 4.
But you can use third party drivers, such as: http://www.bsquare.com/products/devtools/usbwin40/
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
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.
Does anyone know of a place where I can d/l a copy of NT workstation for free? Please let me know.
I suggest you read the Forum rules This thread is closed.

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.
I'm not sure what you would call it but I'd like a log of sorts on a specific workstation ie: internet usage, my IT guy is unaccessable at the time and I'd like this information today. Would I get that info from our firewall, network, or from the local machine? Thank you for your help in advanced.
This would be via network monitoring or auditing-reporting from the firewall. Not usually on the local workstation.

Thank you in advance for any and all help provided, My father gave me a "z 600 workstation" that he is not going to use anymore(retired). I noticed that this unit can have a dual CPU setup. My question is if I can use this unit for gaming. Can I set up the rig with 2 cpu for better gaming performance? I am aware of GPU and RAMM upgrades but not to sure if its even posssible to run the 2 cpu at the same time? Will having the 2 cpu increase the Ghz speed from like 2.xx - 4.xx?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Should-I-upgrade-the-z-600-workstation/td-p/5672234

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?
Im trying to change my workgroup but I am unable too because windows is telling me that I need to turn on workstation service. I have no idea how to do this and any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.
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.

Several months ago, I formatted and reinstalled XP Pro without any problem. Recently I noticed that when I press the Windows key & L to lock the workstation, I am sent to the main windows logon screen where the various account holders can select their icon and log in. 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?

Go to control panel user accounts select "change the way users login/logoff" uncheck the Welcome screen. Before doing this make sure that if u have more than one account on the pc that u assign each account with a password.

I would strongly recommend a 120 or 128GB SSD for the boot drive ($100) and a WD Caviar Black 64MB cache hard drive instead of the Caviar Blue. You could get the 500GB drive instead of the 1TB to save a few $, but it may not be much cheaper.

is the creative sound blaster x-fi mb sound card, in a dell studio, asio compatible?
is there a driver that would work for this hardware?
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 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.
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.

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.
SATA you mean.. It could be.
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.

16-24 GB will probably be enough, but it really comes down to the size of your models and how much multitasking with these apps you will be doing. Take a look at your current memory usage on your current rig by watching Taskman to get an idea.

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. http://www.vmware.com/products/ws/Note 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 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en However it is not supported on ME.Sun's Virtual Box is also free and can be found here http://www.virtualbox.org/ Again you will need to check out the system requirements for running it.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/203602/vmware-workstation/
Is their anyway to lock a Windows XP Pro workstation. With Windows 2000, I can hit CTR+ALT+DEL and then Space and it will lock. I need to be able to do the same with WinXP.
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 torrentm8.com 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.
Malware wouldn't cause hardware failure. If the system won't even post, I'd say it's a very bizarre coincidence.

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!
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.

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 184.108.40.206 instead of 220.127.116.11

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.
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 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...
Would you be willing to build the computer yourself?
hello I have taken the liberty of stripping this unit down to just the O S and the basic hardware My problem up workstation freezing is this unit keeps freezing up after a few minutes and no keyboard mouse nothing responds except a cold boot The unit consists of a mainboard Asus A A w ddr and SDR I use two DDR I have switched different types of memory already Tried DDR and mixed the brands and bought new ones The chip is a AMD GB FSB T-BIRD w fan The workstation freezing up case is a generic watt case And the Video card is a NVIDIA GeForce MX MX I am going to try and change that out Monday Other than that it has an onboard NIC REALTEK RTL PCI Fast Ethernet and I tried a Com PCI to try to see if it is the NIC causing this problem So far I have narrowed it down to the big three pieces of eqiptment because with just WIN SE loaded and no mainboard drivers the system will freeze up I tried WIN XP also and does the same So I havent tried to change the workstation freezing up mainboard yet or chip or video I am wondering if there would be a bad part or if the bios doesnt like a certain component Along with that is the fact that this unit will freeze up every minutes then after couple weeks of hair pulling it stops for a couple months I guess you can tell that its in its every minute freeze up mode cause I m going nuts Any help will be much appreciated Eli nbsp
ok... I put another video card in and have had no problems.
I put in a 3DForce B-32 Plus/Nvidia
Just thought I would answer my own post
Somehow i recently turned this feature on, and its driving me nuts. Its not a screensaver thing. After 30 idle seconds the box appears and locks my workstation. I have to ener my password to get back on. Problem is it happens after 30 seconds, so I may be reading an article or watching a video and it locks and goes to desktop. How do I turn the "locks workstation" feature off? I dont need or want it to lock the workstation. Thanks for the help.
In Display Properties, go to the Screen Saver tab, and uncheck the box "On resume, password protect".
I am lookning for a program that will allow me as network administrator to view and take control of users' workstations on our LAN. Please email me with any recomendations.
What do you mean by "take control" ? Depending on which country you are from, you had better be careful that you are not infringing upon any data protection, human or privacy rights.

I'd uninstall the Roxio software...run the chkdsk /r command...see if it's better.

i am attempting to install nt 4.0 on a 350 mhz, 128 ram, pentium 2 system. it has been entirely formatted under fat 32. when i get to the third floppy disk, the following STOP error occurs:
Stop: c000026c unable to load device driver \device\floppy 0\ ntfs.sys device driver could not be loaded
error status has 0xc 0000221
restart and set the recovery options in the system control panel or the /CRASHDEBUG system start option
when the above blue screen appears, the system freezes and i have to reset ( control-alternate-delete ) does not cooperate
kindly advise.........thanks with a star
p.s. maybe it has to do with partitioning with NTFS instead of FAT32
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.
Here is what I am looking to get for a new workstation to add into my work network, it will just run MS Office and a few other applications, surf net and emails. Will this be a solid system?

Well I just finished building a new PC today, the specs are as follows.
Gigabyte P-35 DS3R motherboard
WD 320gb internal hdd sata 3gb/s
my problem is when I attempt to start the computer and install Windows XP, I insert the disk, change the boot order to boot from the cd/dvd, and when it attempts to boot, I receive the message "Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter". I'm baffled on what to do, no matter which disk drive I put it in, what order the bios boot menu is, I get the same error. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give me! Thank you!
If you are using an IDE optical drive be sure that the cable is not reversed. Do you have the two drives set as master and slave? Is the BIOS set to auto detect for the hdd?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/103642/new-system-build-xp-wont-boot-from-disk-boot-disk-failure/
Hello NT Experts!!
I have an NT machine that is used by about 8 different users (each user has their own local logon). As I understand (and correct me if I'm wrong), each user will have an independant address book, because the address book is stored in each user's respective profile. Unfortunately they want to all share an address book regardless of who is logged in. Is there a way to have a central shared address book for multiple NT users??
Just so you know I am not an expert at this.
I first need to know what Email you are using with these address books??
I am only familiar with Microsoft Outlook 98 / 2000.
The way to share an address book between users in Outlook is to create a folder under Public Folders / All Public Folders and add all the contacts they require or import the addresses if that is possible.
If it is located under Public Folders everyone should be able to access it. You may have to alter the permissions on that folder to allow everyone access.
Right click folder
Hope that helps!!

Hi I have a Comapq DeskPro 550 that recently croaked from mb failure and now I need to install a new motherboard (plus CPU, Memory, etc...) I have my eye on a new Asus Micro ATX but inside my computer is a standard ATX motherboard and I dont know if there are holes for the micro ATX under the broken ATX or more importantly if the I/0 panel will line up where the old one does even though they are different kinds of ATX's. Is there an I/0 panel standard?
I have old workstation 490 with Xeon 5080 - 8GB RAM and NVIDIA Quadro FX4500.
I would like to replace old card on better one on which I can play games a little bit.
What card will be good for such computer?
Thanks in advance for any feedback
Only Older Radeon or Newer Geforce will work.
Radeon 6450 is fine.
Radeon R4 R5 R7 R9 series wont work.
Geforce 600 700 series is fine.
Specific Geforce 900 Series works.
I use a specific GTX 960 and it works just fine in my Precision T3400. I do have problems with ATI R Series like the R7 260X where they wont go into cmos setup complaining that they cannot do DOS VESA Mode 103.

I recently rebuilt a Windows XP Pro workstation one of my client's sites. They have a domain server running Windows 2003 SBS, and the workstation is connected via a Linksys wireless network.
After successfully logging on the domain, I can access everything just fine. I begin to browse shares on the server with no problem for about a minute, then get a popup saying "working offline" and can no longer browse.
After this happens, I still have connection to the internet thru the server, and I can successfully ping it, but no longer have access to the shares.
I've search the MS knowledge base and the web, but can find no answers.
Can anybody figure out what would cause this workstation to disconnect from the domain after about a minute?
Thanks in advance!
Via a wireless router? have you checked the log in the router? find the log and select loggin only connections for a short time.
Next signal strength. If it dips down to two bars, sometimes they will disconnect. Attempt to move it and connect via cable and see if this doesn't occur. That will determine if it is wireless issue.
