Hi,

With base model ML 330 under sw2 make the 2 button on then power on the server and then check again.
This is for clearing the nvram of the server.

Power off server
make switch as described on
then power on server
wait for 5-6 min
it show message at display for clearing configuration
then make it off then power on then check again

Re: Proliant ML330e : Reinstall Win2000

Hi there,

I would follow what Prashant mentioned. However if that does not solve the problem and in light of your question the other method I would try is to create the Windows 2000 set up floppy disks (4 in total) and boot off the floppy (Note, you can create these by using the Windows 2000 CD on any client machine running Windows) I understand that this is an alternate way of achieving your goal of installing the OS on your server but it would not identify the cause why your CD-ROM is not being recognised as a bootable device.

Could you check in the BIOS that CD-ROM is selected as one of the bootable device and perhaps assign the order to be 1 for CD-ROM.

Hope this helps and don't forget to assign points:)

Good luck
