Re: help me with server proliant 1600

it's not something simple like a floppy in the drive?

(normaly get a no ntdlr message)

but it could be.

have you tried re seating all your cables?
perhaps your drive array has gone critical, or failed.

try and give us some more info on what you have tried and what the setup is.

If you are trying to configure the server again without smart cd then use as follow.

Re: help me with server proliant 1600


If the CMOS battery on the I/O module has failed, the system may have reverted back to defaults in which case it is trying to boot from the onboard SCSI channel and not any installed Smart-Array controller. As suggested by Prashant, you can download the system configuration utility (SCU) from his link and set the default boot device order, slecting the controller with your attached disks as "First".

If the battery is faulty however you should also have received Power-on errros of 162, 163 and 172 possibly.

If it does turn out to be the battery it can be replaced with an alternative type if required.

I hope this helps.
