resurrect old S51

#1 Post by shinnen » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:38 am

HI all,
I have an old S51, 8171 that I have brought back to life. I have cloned the OS (Windows XP) using Lazefoft, onto a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 sata drive, but am unable to get the computer to boot up from this drive.
Any help is apppreciated.
Thanks,
...... john

S51 is an old IBM desktop, moved thread to correct sub-forum.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

Oh! Never owned or used an IBM desktop, so not at all familiar with those model numbers.
Collection = T430 - T500 - R400 - X300 - T61 (14" WXGA+) - R61 (15" SXGA+) - X40 - T43p - T43 - T42p - A30P
