I am not sure exactly what type it is.
Here are the info for this server
It is the Compaq Proliant Series 4070. The comfiguation is different than the Series 3000. The number 3, hot plug dry cage is on oneside to left only and has 6 slots, then 2 optional 5.25 inch disc drive(optional non working), then (1) 5.25 disc drive, (1) 3.5 disc drive and power button to top right.

Below is what I see after boot

Re: My server could not boot


server seems to be
Pl 1600 accourding to bios p08
For error message :
Problem Description

Receiving 1611 POST error after cpu initializes with warning that system will shut down.


The CPU fan cable is connected to wrong 4 pin connector (beside the DIMM slots) on CPU board. It needs to be connected to the 4 pin connector beside the 2nd CPU slot.


Reconnect the CPU fan cable to 4 pin connector beside 2nd CPU slot.

error 601
can be due to Compaq 32-Bit Fast-SCSI-2 controllers . The ROM was a physical socketed chip located near the EISA edge connector. Please check If the chip had part number 142090-001 or 142090-002.
