Plan for Configure
Configure for Millie to Use in Concord
Transfer to Concord for Millie
Set up Initial Environment C13
1009 - ..
1010 - Summary/Objective
101101 - Follow up ref SDS 32 0000, ref SDS 31 0000.
101103 - Configured standard setup for new P4 system, c13, and modified c11 for
101104 - Millie to use in Concord to replace c10. Initial setup took about 30
101105 - hours, and gave SDS 634K of RAM, as with prior installations of w2k.
101106 - There were two performance problems with SDS, ref SDS 0 IY4I Efforts
101107 - to correct these problems later caused w2k to fail. W2K was installed
101108 - again. This caused a new problem -- SDS had only 599K of RAM. To get
101109 - the original 634K RAM, installed w2k 30+ times and all partitions were
101110 - eventually formatted to repeat the original OEM installation process
101111 - that yielded 634K of RAM. These efforts failed, and required
101112 - configuring all system software again. Microsoft reported 599K - 634K
101113 - RAM disparity for DOS is caused by differences between OEM and retail
101114 - versions of w2k. MS is sending a retail version of w2k, hoping it
101115 - will help. Installation reported in this record covers 7 - 8 days of
101116 - work.
101118 - [On 010204 after completing configuration of c13, did a full file
101119 - backup on tape 14. ref SDS 33 0001
101121 - ..
101122 - [On 010205 investigate solution to poor performance of w2k; it
101123 - seems to be missing features in w98 for setting disk caching.
101124 - ref SDS 36 0001
101126 - ..
101127 - [On 010206 upgraded BIOS and drivers for Intel board. ref SDS 39
101128 - RH6O
101130 - ..
101131 - [On 010206 changes on 010205 to improve performance, caused system
101132 - failure, installed w2k again. ref SDS 37 0001
101134 - ..
101135 - [On 010214 removed installed full version w2k to replace OEM
101136 - version for purpose of fixing product defects. ref SDS 45 0001
101138 - ..
101139 - [On 041118 upgrade computer from P4 1.4 GHz running w2k, to 3.2 GHz
101140 - and Windows XP causes another performance failure requiring changes
101141 - to SDS. ref SDS 67 RV4I
101146 - ..
1014 - Progress
101501 - Evaluation - New System Faster and Slower
101503 - Some things like compiling the editor and SDS are much faster.
101505 - Sorting using SDS routines is not noticably faster.
101507 - Initially, there seemed to be a problem that SDS was not sorting
101508 - control fields when a record is saved, per below, ref SDS 0 IY4I, but
101509 - a few days later during testing, it seems to be working. ref SDS 0
101510 - IY4I
101512 - ..
101513 - Sorting with Supersort that uses disk read operations is about 3
101514 - times slower on the new P4 c13 system, than on either the PIII 850
101515 - MHz c11 system, and also the 650 MHz c12 notebook computer.
101516 - ..
101517 - The new P4 c13 system doing SDS reports that select records from
101518 - the global pointer file, takes 13 times longer longer than on the PIII
101519 - 850 MHz system, it may have to with the size of the drives. see
101520 - detailed work report below. ref SDS 0 IY4I
101522 - [On 010301 this problem was solved, and the P4 system proved to be
101523 - much faster than prior systems. ref SDS 52 0001
101525 - ..
101526 - The P4 video seems sharper.
101531 - ..
101532 - Configuration Plan for C13 and C11
101534 - Objective is to set up c13 to replace c11 for use in San Francisco,
101535 - and move c11 to Concord for Millie to replace c10.
101537 - This gives Millie a high end PIII 850MHz system with 11 GB of
101538 - storage, and W2K operating system, to replace a PII 300MHz 6 GB
101539 - system that has begun to fail, as reported on 000118. ref SDS 27
101540 - 0001
101542 - [...below, c10 failed to boot. ref SDS 0 UJ6F
101545 - ..
101546 - C10 will be out of service.
101547 - ..
101548 - We could slave the drive in c10 with the drive in c11 to
101549 - increase capacity from 12 GB to 18 GB.
101551 - ..
101552 - C11 has 11 GB, from record on 981114. ref SDS 8 KP3M
101554 - ..
101555 - C10 has a 6 GB hard drive, on 980222. ref SDS 7 MQ6J
101557 - ..
101558 - Talked to Millie this evening. The only software she has on c10 is
101559 - her checking account in the 08 directory.
101562 - ..
101563 - Per planning on 010130, ref SDS 0 K2FR, need following changes...
101565 - ..
101566 - SCSI card in c10 is ISA, so it cannot be used in c13 to drive the
101567 - Exabyte Mammoth tape drive, because the main board in c13 only has PCI
101568 - slots. Have to move the SCSI card in c11 to c13, then move the SCSI
101569 - card in c10 to c11 which has two ISA slots to run the older tape
101570 - drive.
101572 - C10 scsi card is...
101574 - IOMEGA JazJet ISA SCSI card, ref DRP 2 DL8N
101576 - ..
101577 - C11 scsi card is...
101579 - CROSS PLATFORM JazJet PCI USTRA SCSI card, ref DRP 3
101580 - 0408,
101583 - ..
101584 - Tape drive in c11 will be moved to c13, per below. ref SDS 0 K2FR
101586 - Instructions for installing Exabyte tape drive is in the record on
101587 - 000811. ref SDS 23 1984
101590 - ..
101591 - Here are steps....
101592 - ..
101593 - 1. Get network configured to transfer data between systems.
101596 - ..
101597 - 2. Transfer software
101599 - a. Transfer Millie's files on c10 to c11.
101601 - b. Transfer software and set up from c11 to c13.
101603 - c. Setup software on c13 for standard configuration
101605 - ..
101606 - d. Setup Millie's Netscape files on c10 to the same
101607 - configuration on c11.

101610 - Transferred...
101612 - h: 00 07 users welch
101613 - ..
101614 - e. Setup Millie with user ID and password on c11 under
101615 - w2k.
101618 - ..
101619 - 3. Shut down
101621 - Move scsi controller from c11 to c13
101622 - Move scsi controller from c10 to c11
101623 - Move tape drive from c11 to c13
101624 - Install older Exabyte tape drive into c11.
101626 - ..
101627 - 4. Netscape configure on c11 so there is a profile manager that
101628 - Millie can select her own contacts, and email environment,
101629 - and there is another environment for Rod.
101630 - ..
101631 - This requires using the Utility in the Netscape Program
101632 - menu for "User Profile Manager
101634 - ..
101635 - 5. DSL - install second network card from c11, so that c13 can
101636 - network to computers, while also using DSL.
101638 - ..
101639 - 6. Software to transfer from c11 is in the record on 000510.

Fan Front Panel to Blow Dust Heat Out Registers in Back Panel
Dust Removal Once a Month
Fan on Front Panel Not Operating
Speaker in CPU Case
140701 - ..
140702 - Fan in Front Panel Not Running
140704 - When the cover panels were removed from the CPU to install scsi cards
140705 - and the tape drive, the system was powered up to test everything
140706 - before installing the cover panels.
140708 - At this time, I noticed there is a fan inside a plastic housing
140709 - attached to the front panel of the computer frame. It is shown as
140710 - item #15 in the schematic drawing labeled 2101 Series received from PC
140711 - Doctor, so I reported this in the system description for the case
140712 - listed in the invoice. ref DRP 1 003W
140714 - ..
140715 - The fan may reduce the problem of dust accumulating inside the case
140716 - which otherwise contributes to system short circuit problems that
140717 - occurred with c11.
140718 - ..
140719 - While powered up I noticed the chasis fan in the front panel,
140720 - and shown in the case diagram provided by PC Doctor, is not running.
140721 - There is a cable coming from underneath the plastic case, and running
140722 - to connector T on the D850GB main board, which is identified by the
140723 - case schematic as the fan connector. This seems to align with page 19
140724 - para 11 of the quick Reference guide for the D850GB, which describes
140725 - connecting the fans.
140727 - ..
140728 - PC Doctor needs to advise if the fan should be running, and how to
140729 - accomplish this.
140731 - [On 010206 Intel reports fan is on a thermostat and so only runs
140732 - when needed. ref SDS 39 B3WY
140734 - [On 010315 Pcdoctor serviced computer and the front fan fell off
140735 - of the case frame. ref SDS 63 PO25
140737 - ..
140738 - [On 020416 connected front fan to the case. ref SDS 65 0001
140740 - ..
140741 - There is another cable connector that is laying on the bottom panel
140742 - beneath the case for the fan. The case schematic lists part #17 is a
140743 - speaker that has a cable in the plasic case adjacent to the fan. It is
140744 - not clear why the speaker cable is disconnected.
140746 - [On 010206 reported to PC Doctor; extra cable is for an extra
140747 - speaker in the front panel that is not needed. ref SDS 38 GF5H

301405 - The manufacturer of the BIOS is not listed anywhere.
301407 - Invoice shows D850GB Intel main board, ref DRP 1 0055, with Pentium
301408 - 1.4 GHz 400 MHz bus processor. ref DRP 1 PH4H
301410 - ..
301411 - Invoice shows only 128 MB RAMBUSS PC800 DIMM RDRAM. ref DRP 1 01RR
301412 - The record on 010118 says the Pentium 4 processor includes 128 MB
301413 - RDRAM. ref SDS 27 I28I The BIOS says we have 256 MB RDRAM, so this
301414 - indicates the additional 128 MB of memory came with the processor,
301415 - although this is not reported in the invoice. ref DRP 1 PH4H
301416 - ..
301417 - What is not clear is the product specification for the RAM.
301419 - [On 010423 clarified specification of RAM is NON-ECC, when
301420 - upgraded system by adding 256 MB. ref SDS 57 I46L
301422 - [On 010426 increased memory to 512 MB. ref SDS 59 PB4O
301424 - ..
301425 - Hard drive is 46 GB IBM, as shown in the invoice. ref DRP 1 RU8L
301427 - ..
301428 - The system BIOS can be opened by pressing F2 at the beginnng of the
301429 - system boot sequence. It has to be done early. Good practice is to
301430 - press F2 after power up and hold it until a message appears that

301442 - Information on 010206 says that Intel manufactures the BIOS, not
301443 - Phoenix, nor Award, etc., ref SDS 39 RH6O,
301445 - ..
301446 - BIOS says system has P4 1.4 GHZ processor 100 MHZ bus.
301448 - Where is this clarified to show 400 MHz bus, shown in the invoice?
301449 - ref DRP 1 PH4H
301451 - When the BIOS was upgraded on 010206, BIOS reports 400MHz bus.
301453 - ..
301454 - [On 010206 upgraded BIOS to version P08 because Intel recommends
301455 - running the D850DB with at least version P06. ref SDS 37 GP2S
301457 - ..
301458 - Poor performance by SDS, per below, ref SDS 0 IY4I, may indicate
301459 - update drivers needed for better compatibility between Intel
301460 - performance hardware, and w2k operating system.
301462 - [On 010206 upgraded INF driver, ref SDS 37 RF6I, then updated
301463 - driver for IDE controller that manages the hard drive. ref SDS 37
301464 - N95K
301466 - ..
301467 - [On 010214 had to use Intel CD to get initial driver setup for
301468 - D850GB main board, then updated using procedures on 010206.
301469 - ref SDS 45 IJ3H
301471 - ..
301472 - Power Management Settings in BIOS and W2K Need Coordination
301474 - Power management settings need to be coordinated between the BIOS and
301475 - the operating system. There is a history that indicates conflicts
301476 - between settings for power management in the BIOS and in the operating
301477 - system (W2K) cause problems. Therefore, BIOS settings should be off,
301478 - so W2K controls power management. We avoid Standby and Hibernate
301479 - settings, because these have caused system failures.
301481 - BIOS Power Management was initially set by the OEM to....
301483 - ..
301484 - Power Management Enabled
301485 - Inactivity timer 20 minutes
301486 - Hard Disk Management Enabled
301488 - "Inactivity timer" is described as the amount of time the system is
301489 - inactive beofre entering standby mode that powers down various
301490 - devices until you start using the computer again.
301491 - ..
301492 - So this is a standby mode setting.
301494 - ..
301495 - The system crash we later had on 010206 may have been caused because
301496 - late on 010205 I changed settings in W2K....
301498 - Control Panel
301499 - Power Options
301501 - ...from Never for all options, to parameters that turn the monitor
301502 - and disk off after 15 and 20 minutes respectively, shown just
301503 - below.
301505 - ..
301506 - The next day on 010206 w2k failed, and had to be re-installed.
301508 - ..
301509 - This may have occurred because the BIOS was also configured for
301510 - power management enabled.
301511 - ..
301512 - Therefore, the BIOS has been changed to disable Power
301513 - Management.
301515 - [On 010206 system failure required installing w2k again.
301516 - ref SDS 37 0001
301518 - About three weeks later tried same w2k settings for power
301519 - management that suspend use of the monitor and disk, but avoid
301520 - standby and hibernation, per below, and with BIOS power management
301521 - disabled. This seems to work (reported on 010216. ref SDS 47 MT2R
301524 - ..
301525 - W2K is set to "Suspend" ........
301527 - Turn off monitor after 15 minutes
301529 - Turn off hard disks after 20 minutes
301531 - System Standby never
301533 - ..
301534 - [On 010216 c13 failed to return from Suspend after a backup and
301535 - verify operation; therefore disabled all Power Management on c13
301536 - in w2k and in BIOS. ref SDS 47 0001
301538 - ..
301539 - Per above, after later disablig power management in the BIOS,
301540 - the w2k suspend modes now seem to work.
301541 - ..
301542 - Advanced tab
301544 - Always show icon on the task bar is not selected.
301546 - Prompt for password when computer goes off standby is not
301547 - selected, because Standby is not enabled.
301549 - ..
301550 - Hibernate tab
301552 - Enable hibernate support is not selected.
301555 - ..
301556 - This is the same setting that is in w2k on c11, and it has worked
301557 - without any problems since 000310.

610628 - However, it does not work as well, as the prior version. For one
610629 - thing, the mouse is lost when moving across the viewing area, which is
610630 - disorienting. The mouse can be used to stop and start the video in
610631 - mplayer, but not in wmplayer.exe. The new program has less viewing
610632 - area, because a lot of buttons are provided that are not used often
610633 - enough to justify direct access on a panel, rather than in the menus.
610634 - Finally, the earlier program provided a simple means to save a file by
610635 - right clicking that open a menu to designate a directory. The new
610636 - program requires using the File and save as menu, and is actually more
610637 - complicated than that, too much so to write it up.

610640 - Therefore, changed the association by using the feature of opening a

610642 - the menu that makes program associations for file extentions, and set

AA1136 - A few days later, I tested this in debug by stepping through
AA1137 - the code with both c13 and c12 running the operation, to see
AA1138 - if any steps are being missed.

AA1141 - When debug was removed, and the editor was compiled again,
AA1142 - now the code on c13 is sorting control fields.
AA1144 - ..
AA1145 - Possibly the updated drivers from Intel on 010206 fixed the
AA1146 - problem, per above. ref SDS 0 UZ5G
AA1147 - ..
AA1148 - 2. Reports that use Supersort to select records are much
AA1149 - slower on c13 PV system, than on c11 and c12 PIII systems.
AA1151 - ..
AA1152 - The specific problem is record selection on the global pointer
AA1153 - file that is 10 MB. The new computer, c13, takes 13 seconds,
AA1154 - while the slower computers take only 1 second.
AA1156 - [On 010205 worked on this problem. ref SDS 36 0001
AA1158 - ..
AA1159 - Results of work on 010205 showed Supersort is the problem, and
AA1160 - there is a history of similar issues. ref SDS 36 VW7H Tried
AA1161 - changing code to sort archived pointers. Improved performance 3

AA1168 - example on 970729, to improve performance of 25.bat operation
AA1169 - that builds global pointers. ref SDS 4 CP4L However, this makes
AA1170 - no noticable improvement. For one thing, the configuration
AA1171 - program for DOS apps under the Program tab, has a buffers field,
AA1172 - which may take effect regardless of what is put in config.nt.
AA1173 - There is, also, an option to set size of buffers and the number
AA1174 - of buffers, but there is no explanation for setting these
AA1175 - factors. Changing them randomly had no noticle effect.
AA1177 - ..
AA1178 - On 970904 problem with 25.bat building global pointers was caused
AA1179 - by a video driver conflict. ref SDS 5 B4ER

AA1228 - attempts to solve problem #2, above, there was only 599K RAM
AA1229 - instead of 634K, because dosx.exe would not load high, as it did

AA1231 - on two other w2k systems. Numerous installations of w2k using
AA1232 - different ways and source code failed to produce the original
AA1233 - configuration that loaded dosx.exe into upper memory, so that SDS
AA1234 - has 634K of RAM. MEM command listings illustrate the scope of

AA1263 - in autoexec.nt; gives 634K of RAM. ref OF 1 4W3L
AA1265 - ..
AA1266 - This is inconvenient because many programs use dosx.exe for
