Re: ML530 POST ERROR of controller.

ROM installation problem or
Array Accelerator board problem

If this message appears
immediately following a ROM
installation, the ROM is
defective or not installed
properly. Check that the
controller is firmly inserted in its
slot. Try upgrading the System
ROMs. Otherwise, replace the
Integrated Smart Array

Download an ISO image for firmware maintenance CD, burn it and boot from it.
It will upgrade all firmware components inside your server, make shure your server is connected thru an UPS
