Having issue booting HP 9000 rp7420

The server does not see the DVD I have checked all connections and also replaced the PCI power supplys.

I have 1 x CELL A6913A with 1 x AB309A 8GB KIT and 4 X A6437A pa8800 1.0Ghz CPU's in CELL slot 1?

I can not get it to boot in cell slot 0.

ANY SUGGESTION WOULD GREATLY HELP?????

If you have only 1 cell it must be in slot 1!

The internal DVD drive is connected to cell 1 too by default.

Hope this helps!

Do you have the offline diags CD? You can download an ISO from software.hp.com (PA version). If you run mapper, the output is similar to an ioscan.

You can also try to get all the "PS" outputs from

MP:CM>

maybe this will give more information ...

Hope this helps!
