DL 380 G2 will not boot from Floppy or CD

DL 380 G2 will not boot from Floppy or CD.
I have the latest ROM updates (P24 5/01/2004)
The floppy and CD are first in the boot order.
There do not seem to be any Hardware Errors on POST.

Attempts to Boot from Bootable Floppy and Windows 2003 Standard CD, but moves on to the Hard Drive before the Non-System disk or disk error on my newly partitioned logical drive.

I verified that the media is indeed bootable on another system.

Are there any know issues with this ROM version dealing with Bootup?

Any ideas?

I'm experiencing the exact same issue. Did you ever get this one resolved?

Steve,

I am sorry to say that I did not. My suspicion is that I had a faulty motherboard. I was able to get another system from ebay and get it working. Sorry.

Thanks for the quick reply. I had another DL380G2 that I could take off line briefly, so I tried the cd-rom from that machine.

Much to my surprise, the problem system worked perfectly with the cd rom from the working system. Therefore, I conclude the problem must be in the cd.

Who'd a thunk it?
