Re: RP 7410 not booting.

At the service menu, do an inventory of the hardware and see if the disks are showing up. In both boot attempts above, the ISL area can not be read. Did you or anybody did something to the boot disks or did something with the LIF commands? It is unlikely that both boot disks went bad at the same time.
Also did this server ever boot from the alternate path? Maybe the primary path disk failed and the alternate path boot disk was never set up properly.
You should be looking for replacement disks and an ignite tape.

Re: RP 7410 not booting.

Both disks are not bootable.

Either you try to repair the boot header (install media -> recover) or restore your ignite.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
