Proliant ML 370 - Wont always boot up.

Hello all, I have a odd issue with my ML 370, g4.


The server will not always boot up into windows, in fact I'd say around 1 in 10 boots are successful,  just as you expect to see the windows logo come up after post, the screen changes to a small flashing cursor in the top left hand side, this is the point where I'd expect windows to start loading,


the raid controller is a smartarray 642, with the latest firmware, 


can anyone help? This is a most annoying issue! And I really need to get this machine to boot reliably,


I would be grateful for any suggestions or advice! - thank you all in advance!




Re: Proliant ML 370 - Wont always boot up.



Have you tested the server in Safe-Mode (F8)?

Have you performed any Diagnostics from HP SmartStart CD?

You may perform Insight Diagnostics and Array Diagnostic Utility.


Thank You!
