DL380 G1 will not boot

i have a DL380 G1 server and drive 0
is bad

the server has been rebooted and now the server
will not come up all the way

is there any way that i can make a boot disk to
bring up the server so i can replace the bad drive

Hi,

You can replace and rebuild the failed disk at BIOS level itself if it is a hardware RAID. If it is software raid and you know which drive has failed then try removing the failed disk from the array and then try to boot. Also try booting to single user mode.

Hi,

I meant to say try booting to safe mode as Preparing Network connections will only come in Windows environment.
