P410i does not boot after shutdown

Hello all,

i have a brandnew DL380 G6 with P410i controller having 3 array (RAID 1).
After shutting down my server for restart (windows 2008R2) now the Server can not find the C-drive anymore. I also can not tell the Controller to use that specific array that is actually the c-drive.
Diagnosis all are green, the boot-disk-Check-Util in BIOS also states an existing an functional Boot-drive and sector so how comes that the server does not boot anymore ?
I also checked the array-sequence in bios an set the p410i als #1 or #2 with neither effect.

When it comes to booting in POST
the server states:
Trying to boot from CD-ROM (theres none so it skips)
trying to boot from c: (and here he should boot but skips )
the he tries PXE and so on and cycles then.

Any ideas what i could check here that i have forgotten ?
Any help is kindly appreciated !

Greetings,

markus

Hello,
could you boot win2008 instalation disk and try if it detects primary partitions and probably try to repair it? It looks like OS issue... :(

Re: P410i does not boot after shutdown

Hi,

i thought, from the behaviour it could be a wrecked MBR or so ...
but indeed: it was a Firmware Problem.
FW 3.30 is extremely buggy as the HP Hotline-Member told me. I had to downgrade to 3.0 and rearrange the drive-#s as it screwed them up also.

Greets,

Yes, we have SATA and SAS disks in the server

2x 146 GB SAS for System

and 4x 500 GB SATA for 2x 500 RAID 1 DATA-drives
