Thread: Windows 2K Workstation Revived With Problems

    Yes, is there a way to get the extra speed? It seemed that 933 MHz was the highest option.

    The utility provided several options and 933 MHz was the fastest. If there is a way I can get it up to the 1 GHz speed, please let me know.

    I spent some time with the machine today and as it stands all 3 GB of Ram are recognized, and the processors are almost maxed out. I had to install an older CD ROM (from 1999) because I was having problems with the DVD writer slowing down the system and also an older CD writer that I could not load the drivers for. Doing yet another clean install of Windows 2000 seemed to clean things up a bit. As it stands, here is how the machine is set-up:

    Windows 2000 Pro SP 4
    Dual 1 GHz P3 XEON Processors (clocked at 933 MHz each)
    3 GB RAM
    17 GB SCSI Hard-Drive for OS and Applications
    Floppy Drive
    ZIP 100 Drive (IDE 2 on motherboard)
    CD ROM (IDE 2 on motherboard)

    I have just mounted a pair of Seagate Barracude 250 GB PATA Hard-Drives in the caddy and am about to connect them to IDE Channel 1 on the mother board. They will be used to store files only.

    Regarding the pair of 250 GB hard-drives, how should they be configured? Master, Slave, Cable Select? I have no idea.

    Dear Moderator,

    I just noticed that my thread was moved to "completely off topic". I don't understand this as I originally posted in a pentium category.

    Also, my posts are taking an extremely long time to be posted.

    Is this sop for newbs like myself?

    Thank you,

    iirc, in one of those threads I linked it said the /E option is needed to get all the way up to 1GHz.

    Good Morning,

    The responses to my questions have been very helpful. I have posted twice in the last 12 hours or so and they are not shown in the thread. I would like to resolve the issues with my computer before the weekend is gone, so if there is any way to get my posts into the thread soon, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Moderators have lives to live too. Not having your posts approved on a long holiday weekend is not the end of the world.

    You've got 11 posts now, so your replies should appear immediately.

    Thank you for all of the support.

    I finally got the machine in full working order including the pair of 250GB hard-drives. I simply left the jumpers in the "cable-select" option and formatted them using the disk provided by Seagate.

    This will be my ultimate cad work-station, it will allow me to use the software I paid thousands of dollars for almost 20 years ago.
