DL120G5 Bios update now fans running at full speed

HI

Trying to install Win2008R2 on a HP DL120G5. But ran into the embedded sata controller isue that won't allow Windows to detect my mirror array. And after several days of Googling I decided to update the BIOS to SP1265 downloaded and extract using 7zip. The Bios uodate did go well with no error message but still Windows down't detect my array and the fans are running at full speed and won't tim back.

 

All advise/ help appreciated

Hi,

 

Check if any fan has failed, for other fans may try to compensate the air flow and hence increase in fan noise. If not try clearing NVRAM. If the issue persists, then reseat internal components. If not then reduce the server to minimum configuration and add one component at a time and power the server to try isolate issue causing component.

Thanks for the response, fans are all good. How/where do I clear the NVRAM?

In BIOS by load defaults?

However, go to advanced in BIOS and view the IPMI logs.

Do you have the LO100 interface? If yes, check the status from there.


Hope this helps!

Thanks Torsen. After I set to defaults I can now install windows server 2008R2, but the fans are still running full speed. When I look at the IPMI log it only show errors for 2009 altought the date on the BIOS is today date.........

If the LO100 option is installed (not sure if this was optional) go into BIOS-advanced-IPMI and set an IP address and check the status from there.


Hope this helps!

Re: DL120G5 Bios update now fans running at full speed

Appologies wasn't able to log in yesterday...I have now reseat all the major components including new termal paste on the CPU. And even all 3 fans.  The IMPI "log " show recoverable and un recoverable meory issues. And I have swapped them round still the fans runn at full speed. Stripped it back to just 1 memory module still the same.

 

I ma sure it has got something to do with this BIOS update SP1265 as on the older version this server was in production and all I need to do was to upgrade from windows server 2003 to 2008 R2. Is there a way I can roll back?
