Microserver not booting to BIOS

Microserver not booting to BIOS


We recently bought a new G10 microserver for some light services. We are trying to run Windows Server 2016 essential on it. The thing is when we have any occupation in the HDD trays the server does not boot or even give the option to go into boot menu/bios and is in an infinite loop. As soon as I remove all the HDD's the server responds as to be expected and immediatly gives me the BIOS options. 

If anyone would happen to know a fix, or cause for this you would help us allot!


Thanks in advance!
