3.0 Installation instructions for Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition

The following sections provide two different procedures that you can use to install Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition, depending on your computer.

3.1 Pre-installed software recovery

If your IntelliStation computer comes preloaded with the Microsoft Windows XP operating system, see "Recovering the operating system and pre-installed software" in the Problem Determination and Service Guide that comes on the documentation CD that comes with the computer. Follow the step-by-step process to recover your operating system.

3.2 Instructions for manual software installation

If you are installing Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition on a computer that has a SAS drive installed, you must connect an external USB diskette drive and download and install the SAS device driver. If you are installing the operating system on a computer that has a SATA drive installed, skip step 2. You do not have to install a SATA device driver. The SATA device driver is included in Windows XP Professional Edition.

To install Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition, complete the following steps:

  1. Turn on the computer and insert the Windows XP Professional Setup CD into the CD or DVD drive. When you are prompted with the message Press any key to boot from cd, press any key. Setup copies the files from the setup CD. This process takes several minutes.
  2. For a computer with a SATA drive, skip to step 4.
  3. For a computer with a LSI SAS controller and a SAS drive, connect an external USB diskette drive, and complete the following steps:
    1. Go to Software and device drivers - IBM IntelliStation and follow the menus for the Type 9229 to download the LSI SAS device driver. Follow the instructions in the device driver readme file to create a device driver diskette.
    2. When the message prompt Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration is displayed, press F6.
    3. When prompted, press S to specify an add-in device driver.
    4. Insert the device driver diskette into the diskette drive. The Windows XP Professional Setup program checks the diskette for a device driver.
    5. When the names of the device drivers are displayed, select LSI MPT Fusion SAS driver and select Next. Windows XP Professional Setup loads the device driver and continues the installation of the operating system.
  4. When you are prompted to install Windows XP Professional, press Enter.
  5. Press Enter again to indicate that this is a new installation and not a repair.
  6. When the license agreement is displayed, read the license agreement and press F8 to agree.
  7. When Windows XP Professional Setup displays all the hard disk storage that is available on the computer, select one of the following options to choose or create a drive partition in which to install Windows XP Professional:
    • Allow Setup to create a partition: To partition the entire hard disk as one primary partition, highlight non-partitioned space for the hard disk drive on which you want to install Windows XP Professional and press Enter.
    • Create a partition: To create a partition, highlight Non-partitioned space for the hard disk drive on which you want to install Windows XP Professional and press C. You are prompted to indicate how much available space to allocate from the nonpartitioned drive. Type the amount of space (in MB) and press Enter.
    • Delete a partition.
  8. When you are prompted to select a file system, select NTFS file system.

    Notes:

    1. Setup formats the selected partition and copies the applicable files to the drive partition. This process takes several minutes.
    2. The computer restarts to the graphical portion of Setup where Setup continues with the installation of Windows XP Professional. During this process, Setup automatically installs and configures the devices in the computer. This process takes several minutes.
  9. Change the regional settings if you are not installing the computer in the US, and then select Next.
    Note:
    To modify the regional settings after installing Windows XP Professional, select Control Panel and then select Regional Options.
  10. In the Personalize Your Software window, when you are prompted for your name and organization, type your name and organization. The names that you type are used as default computer names. Applications that you install later use this information for the product registration and document identification. Select Next.
  11. When you are prompted for the Windows XP Professional Setup CD-Key, type the Windows XP Professional Setup CD-Key in the applicable fields. Select Next. (Setup uses the organization name that was entered previously, as a suggested name for the computer.)
  12. In the Licensing Modes window, select the applicable licensing mode for your organization. Select Next.
  13. In the Name and Administrator Password window, when you are prompted for an administrator password and workstation name, type the workstation name and password. Select Next. (Setup uses the organization name that was entered previously as a suggested name for the computer.)

    Note: Passwords are case sensitive. Be sure to use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters with at least one number for your password.

  14. In the Time Zone window, set the current time. To change the date, select the button to the right of the date. To change the time, highlight the value that you want to change and enter the new values using the keyboard or the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys. Select Next.
    Note:
    Windows XP Professional services perform many tasks that are dependent on the accuracy of the time and date settings of the computer. Be sure to select the correct time zone for the computer location to avoid problems.
  15. In the Networking Settings window, select Typical or Custom settings. If you are prompted, type the applicable network information. Select Next to install Windows networking components.
  16. In the Workgroup or Computer Domain window, select one of the following options:
    • No, this computer is not on a network, it is a network without a domain.
    • Yes, make this computer a member of the following domain.
  17. Type the workgroup or domain name in the applicable field. Select Next.

    The remaining operating-system components are installed and configured according to the options that you specified. The display in the left column is the amount of time remaining until the Windows XP Professional installation is completed. This process might take several minutes.

    When Windows XP Professional Setup has completed installation, the computer automatically restarts.

  18. After Windows XP Professional starts, type the administrator password to log on.
