So recently I've acquired and set up one of these Powermates as above. One small issue - the computer runs Windows 7, and I would like to install XP on there (or at least dual boot). Sadly, scouring the internet, I've been unable to find any information about it, let alone any type of recovery media or drivers. If anyone here has any info about it, I'd love to know! I assume it's from 2005 or so, since it has a P4 HT with the current Intel logo on it. It also originally ran XP MCE 2005. Thanks in advance.
Are you comfortable with giving out the PCI IDs on your 6101a? It should be possible to manually identify the devices with that, and that would additionally give me the leads to the device drivers that you need. By the way, If you don't know how or where to get that information from, follow these steps:
Click on the start button orb, then right-click on Computer. There should be a 'Properties' option showing up, so click that. Once that is done, a small window that is labeled 'System Properties' should show up. From there onwards, click the 'Hardware' tab, which should show the 'Device Manager' button below. Click on that 'Device Manager' button, and a window that is labeled 'Device Manager' should show up.
Double-click on any of the device groups that you feel is important, then right click on the specific device and click 'Properties'. Then, click the 'Details' tab. There should be a selection bar below the 'Property' text, and the selection bar should be showing 'Hardware Ids'. If it is not, click the selection bar and select 'Hardware Ids'.
There, the PCI ID that you want to look at is the top-most text in that text box below 'Hardware Ids'. If possible, could you give me the PCI IDs that you feel, are important? One last thing though, do you wish to run XP x86 or XP x64?
The list of results will show the device type and hopefully a link to drivers from the manufacturer of the device.
NEVER give out hardware ID's unless you have to. Best to search for the drivers yourself, using the hardware ID.
