Power supply is ok (both green lights), but if i power on the system nothing appears :(
HDD device lights flashing for a short moment, but the system wan't do anything.
Any hints?

Check the top cover of the machine and see if any of the diagnostic leds are on. This should narrow things down for you.

Re: Boot failure Proliant 8500

sorry, i forgot to say it, but all lights on the upper side are off.
furtermore i tried to reassemble all pluggable parts, no change.

From an other system I know there are a menu-like structure on the IMD, but here is nothing. Can I reset anything? I tried to reinstall the ROMpaq, setting the appropriate switches on the board (1, 4, 5 and 6) to ON, the System beeps 2 times, but it doesn't read from the floppy disc..

Even the CPU and memory? Reseating those that is. When one of those is not connecting, failed or incorrect, this symptom can occur.
