Can't Boot!....Help Please!!!

I can't get a ML370 G2 Windows 2000 Server back up. It locked and we had to reboot. It starts to load Windows. Using the /SOS in the boot.ini shows that the last file it loads is CPQPHP.SYS, then the scroll bar gets about 3/4 of the way, the keyboard lights flash once, the computer's fans go from very loud to fairly quiet and the system just hangs. I don't know what's going on. I can get in by running Safe Mode though.

Has been known to be caused by dual booting two O/Ss or not having the correct O/S selection in the bios. Check the F9 bios and be sure O/S is set to Win2k in System Options/OS selection menu. Hope this helps.

Hi

I have the same problem only that I got a DL 580 G1 with windows 2000.

And the Bios info says windows 2000.
