Proliant DL360 G2 won't boot from CDROm

Hi,

I'm having a problem with the server described in the subject.
I have updated the firmware of everything on the machine using the HP firmware CD 7.50. Afterwards I performed a system erase with the HP Smartstart CD.

But now I'm no longer able to boot from cdrom... tho not able to install anything.

What happens...
The server boots up.
Counts mem, goes to my raid controller (all fine there, I'm able to create,delete,view arrays using F8).
But than I normally should come up with press F9 from Rom blabla... , but it comes up like really fast and i'm never able to push it. Than it skips to PXE boot, but since I don't use that, I wait and than the system reboots.
Even with a smartstart cd in it, it will not boot from CDROM.

Anyone has a suggestion on what I should do?

Thanks!
Erik

Hello ErikVanHoef,

You did a system erase using which version of SSCD?
If its a 2P(dual processor) server,try booting with 1P.

PS :
Counts mem, goes to my raid controller .
Are the processor(s) detected inbetween?

Hi ,

It's a 1 CPU Machine and it finds it correctly between Mem count & Array.

The version of smart start was 7.3

Check if server boots from the OS Cd(Win 2000/2003)?

Nope it doesn't. It doesn't boot from any cdrom...

Have you changed the boot order in RBSU?
(I suppose it should be first since you have used the Firmware Maintanence Cd.)
Incase Cd-rom is the first,try reseating the ide cable connected to the Cd-rom.

Problem is that I have no idea how to get in there... I don't have an option for that

Try erase NVRAM with maintenance switch ( see Maintenance and Service Guide).
