Proliant ML150 - 1 long, 6 short beeps

I've looked up on the Net what this error means and I've found the following: "unable to load interrupt vectors: The BIOS was unable to load the interrupt vectors into memory."

1) What does this mean?
2) I have 4 hot-swap drives... does the order in which these are inserted matter?
3) If yes to question 2, then could this account for the error beeps?

Cheers
Todd

hi

you got this from web ? ""unable to load interrupt vectors: The BIOS was unable to load the interrupt vectors into memory.""

well that does not mean it applies for a proliant server


what you can try is with your server since I think you got no video
try minimum configuration no PCI cards, 1 Proc at a time, 2 DIMMS at a time too

- remove memories to check if you got the same issue

Hi Karlo, thanks for your reply...

Yes, I got that message from the web because it was the only info on that sequence of beeps that I could find.

Does the order in which the hot-swap drives are reincerted matter... because I don't know the correct order the drives should go in.

no HDDs have nothing to do with that

It can be DIMMS, CPUs or System Board not HDDs
