Re: compaq prolant ML 370

Hi Mohammed,

I suspect that your SCSI card is a 5Volt PCI card (Check with manufacturer's spec.)

Slots 1 and 2 of the ML370G2 are 3.3Volt PCI slots. The other slots are 5Volt slots. Perhaps that is why you have the problem. (See attached image).

I hope this helps.

Re: compaq prolant ML 370

Hi,

Maybe something changed in the BIOS. Why not revert back to the older BIOS and see if that makes any difference.

Enter Rom-Based BIOS Setup via F9 at POST.
Select Advanced Settings
Select Redundant Rom Selection
Select Switch to Backup Rom
Save and exit.
