Cannot erase etc etc.

Hi

Hope you can help. Late last year we bought a number of DL380's - P866...

This server in question is causing no end of problems...after the initial installation, we expereinced anumber of problems and so erased the system completely. Now we are unable to continue during a smartstart install or erase the system.

Smartstart - whether assisted or manual - instead of restarting simply comes to a message screen telling you it is safe to turn off or ctrl+alt+del and the whole process starts again. The erase system simply says processing and does nothing - I cannot even get it into the infamous loop where it continues the erase upon reboot etc etc..

I have updated the various hardware rompaq's, I have removed additional parts we installed and returned it back to basics - nothing.... Have even tried the DR mode - nothing....

can you advise?

Many Thanks

Roy Melvin
