Starting up ML370 G4 From IDE Drive


The ML370 G4 I have doesn't have any SCSI drive. I added an IDE drive as a master with the DVD drive as the slave.

I am able to start up Parted Magic from CD. I am also able to run Ubuntu from USB. I install Ubuntu from a USB key to the hard drive. All went well. However, I can't start up from the IDE hard drive itself.

Is there any known restriction on this? Has anyone done this before?

Hi there,

IDE ports provided on the system board are to connect IDE CD/DVD drives only.

IDE HDD is not supported on ML370 G4 server.

thanks,

SCSI drives or a SAS or SAS RAID controller with SAS drives. IDE hard drives are not supported on ML370.
