Boot issues ML350 G1

I have a ML350 G1 that will continuously reboot, within 10-15 seconds from post.
I can't get it to stay on long enough to make BIOS adjustments. Resetting to default BIOS was no help.
Any ideas where to start?

Re: Boot issues ML350 G1

Hmm.. how far does it go in the POST before it reboots? Does it complete CPU/DIMM test? Does it stall in the SCSI initialization?

I would first try to see where it stops, if it's always at the same time, then try to run it with as little DIMMs as possible, as few CPUs and no extra PCI devices.

Thanks for the reply...

Ive tried removing devices one-by-one, drives, feature board, memory, all to no avail.

It does have two CPU's, so I'll try that.

Its a crapshoot... Sometimes it gets to BIOS, and in the middle of attempting adjustment it shuts down again. I'm trying to turn off thermal shutdown, but can't get that far. Seems that the warmer it is, the quicker it shuts down. It gets past initializing the SCSI drives, and usually after the "SCSI BIOS not installed!" prompt it reboots.

I'll keep trying.

Removed processor 2, all problems ceased.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Good job :)

Too bad its so old .. maybe not even worth buying a new CPU for it?

Only paid $50 for it...
Hell, the Smart Array controller, memory, and 4 drives were worth that...

Thanks again.
