172-EISA Configuration Nonvolatile Memory Invalid

I have Proliant 2500 server running Windows 2000 server (SP2). I am getting "172-EISA Configuration Nonvolatile Memory Invalid" error, then "162-System options not set" error. I have downloaded the Compaq diagnostics to 4 disks and run the diagnostics to clear problems. However, the same error appears every time I cold reboot the server i.e. power-off and power-on, it is OK with warm reboot (Ctrl, Alt , Del). Can you please help with this problem?

Many thanks

Kenny

Go into the F10 partition. Let it autoconfigure and then save and exit. If the F10 partition is not installed then boot off a Smart Start cd and run the System Configuration Utility. Please do not install this as it will repartition your hard drives.
