  • LEGACY AMF BOSS 9.1 bowling system-Front Desk PC not able to run Boss(NOT RESPONDING)

    I have an IT company and have a customer, Elks of Bangor PA that have a legacy AMF BOSS 9.1 bowling system. The server is fully operational. The Front Desk, dell pc running windows 2000 pro had a HDD hardware issue. I was able to clone the HDD to new and put in an identical computer we purchased from ebay. Got it to boot into windows 2000, connected back to the network. Ran BOSS 9.1 workstation configuration and IP address & workstation name identified normally. Also got drive map to connect normally and all seem correct. Except when running front desk, sits there and is not responding. Can ping server, access server shares, disabled firewall on front desk pc, Disabled all BOSS options except Front Desk app. Still won't run front desk. What are we missing? can anyone help, call us for tech support. Customer is willing to pay support Incident to get resolved.

    If you cloned the drive and put it in an identical PC, then I don't see why you had to run any of the configurations. I have never had to do anything other than put drive in new machine, connect to server and boot up.
