Hi Paul:

Did you set the options in the bios. Boot to the SCU or F10 partion and make sure that system is configured.

if that dosenot work; then you will have to run Erase from the Erase utility without the drives connected; this will only erase your Nvram; and then reset the SCU F10 partion.

when running erase make sure no hard drives are connected to server.

Can run the SCU from smart start cd 5.50 or under; or also from floppy:

Compaq System Configuration Utility
version 2.58 A (17 Jan 02)

Compaq System Erase Utility
version 1.70 A (25 Apr 03)

Best regards,

Hey, look a light at the end of the tunnel.

I've just also have just started to have this problem and followed the instructions that the Tech guy said but still don't work. Have you had any luck?
