Hello all again,

I am working a STSe system with In-Skin HDD VM card. Presently trying to access and program
the Voice mail. Software just won't connect. Pressing flex button for VM just rings.

I connected a VGA Monitor to the VM board and it shows a bunch of hardware data but at the
bottom it displays the following.

"No Boot Device Present. Halting"

Anyone know if that means the HDD has crashed and will never return??

OR

Is there something that can be done to recover from this??

Looking for some hint or solutions.

Thanks,

Les

Unfortunately, that "boot device" is your hard drive. The BIOS is getting you to the point where you get this message. You might get lucky and find a faulty connection on the drive where it attaches to the card, but that's about the best advice I can offer. There are HDD recovery companies, in fact I have one recovering mine from my laptop, but they're not cheap.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the reply.

So you are saying that the HDD is gone to another world??
I was afraid of that. So my choices are slim.
I will see if I can find a replacement.

Thanks,

Les

If you still need a replacement, I have 2 or 3 I could let go at a fair price. Let me know if you are interested.

Hello All,

Ok, I am still working on the this project.

I now have a working (to a point) In-Skin HDD VM card for the STSe KSU.

I have connected a monitor with USB mouse and keyboard and all starts up as it should.
What I can't find is a program on the HDD that will allow me to program the VM board.

I can access the Voice Mail on a Extension Phone and set up there but I would like to
set up the Auto Attendant to allow various functions for incoming calls, etc.

What I don't know is what program I should be looking for. Is it InSkins Admin or something different??

The alternant question is; Does anyone have available the default data/programs that is installed on the HDD??

This is only a guess but, if someone has wanted to clean the programming off the HDD and deleted
the InSkins Admin software off the HDD then I would be viewing exactly what I described above.

Thanks for any insight!!

Les

If you're getting the Windows home screen, which you should, you should be able to click on the start button and select the voice mail application right there in the start menu programs. From there, it looks very similar to the layout of the Talkpath/Disptatch voice mail ADMIN32 software.

Hi Ed,

Yes I am getting the WIN XP home screen and looking at the various programs and files
I could not locate any thing that would be related to a program to modify the VM.

I did notice a couple of files that were related to InSkin but they turned out to be
nothing. It is almost as if the InSkin Admin software was there at one time but
was removed or the folder was deleted for some reason.

At this point I have a 90 day warrantee with the seller and it is being replaced as I type.

Should be here by the middle of next week. Hopefully, the replacement will be
ready to go. I will report back the results.

Thanks,

Les

Hi Ed and others,

I received the replacement InSkins HDD VM Board. Installed it and connected Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard.
I have been looking for a program of some type to set up and program the VM system
but just can't find it. I may be as DUMB as a ROCK but I don't see it.

Please see the attached. It would seem to me that the program would be in the TalkPath folder.

InSkins HDD WIN_XP screen

I tried the most logical but they all seem to hang and do nothing.

I did open this and it seem to be working but no programming ability.
PathFinder ViewPort

I did do a file search for InSkins*.* and the only thing that comes up is a shortcut that proves to be empty.

Any insight would be most helpful.

Thanks,

Les

XP OS should be loaded onto the hard drive, from there just like you are looking at your own laptop, go to desktop, then start programs look for Vodavi, and there should be an admin file to open, works the same as the old pathfinders, not like the admin sofware where you connect with a serial cable.
