ML150G6

We have 2 x ML150G6 with similar configuration 2 x hard disks (raid1). After loading the operating system (win 2003 r2) the server can be booted 2 or 3 times after that they will not boot in normal mode, they get as far as the win 2003 splash screen dissappearing and no more. The hard disk led continues to flicker other for as long as you leave it powered up. They will start in safe mode and there is no indication of a problem in the event viewer. We have reloaded the OS numerous times using both the HP and Microsoft supplied disks with the same result on both servers. There is no software other than the operating system loaded. Any clues anyone?

Re: ML150G6

Thanks Mark
It was a clean install using the HP supplied easy setup Cd. We also tried a manual install using Microsofts 2003 server disks and manually installing drivers with the same result (no boot after 2 or 3 restarts although 1 of the server did start this morning).
We have a single 460w power supply however we didn't upgrade any of the bios so I'll do that right away and re-install the OS
