Re: Proliant 1850r

I would recommend clearing NVRAM on the machine. You can do this by opening the machine up, looking at approximately the front edge of the system board near the middle. You should see six switches in the switchbank. Turn switch 6 on, power the server up, turn it back off after the processors and memory are initialized, and turn the switch back off. This should reset it back to the factory defaults: floppy, cd, drive. If it still has a problem with booting from cd, then it's likely a problem with the drive.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
