ML370 G3 Taking about 3 minutes to get to boot menu

Hi,

I have just replaced a 5i Array controller and system board in an ML370 G3

I'm not sure how the machine behaved before I did the work, however it takes a long time to start up.

Once powerered on it soon detects the disks and proceeds to test for CD,floppy boot etc which is normal. But once past this I get a flashing cursor in the top left corner of the screen for about 2-3 minutes. No errors are produced, and eventually the Windows boot menu will appear and the OS will boot normally after that.

Insight Agents do not report any faults and the server is currently running OK.

What can be causing it to take so long to start ?

Thanks folks!

Marc
