Your server uses a Super P8SCi Motherboard, and according to the manual for your server on page 4-2, you can enter the bios of the computer by rapidly pressing the DELETE key when you first power on the server. This will take youto the bios setup screen. At the top, you'll see an option called boot. Use the arrows keys to navigate over to it, and change your first boot device to the CD-ROM Drive. Then SAVE AND EXIT, and it will now boot from any cd before looking to boot from the hard drive.

Why does my supermicro 6024h keeps restarting when starting up? What's true is that it's kinda hot in my room, being all summer.


The link below will take you to the page where you can progress to downloading the manual for this machine.
http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/2U/6024/SYS-6024H-32.cfm

Click on the "manuals" link and a new page will open with supermicro T & Cs which you must accept by clicking the relevant button at the bottom of document which you need to scroll through. As soon as you click on this the manual will download and all the relevant information you need is in Chapter 7, which starts on page 71 of the pdf document.
If you continue to be unable to get into the BIOS you may need to reconfigure your SCSI setup from the SCSI management console, or even disconnect items from the computer one by one to find out if any are faulty. This boot cycling can often be caused by faulty hardware - especially the boot disk.
Good luck

Resolve Error Code: C7 on SuperMicro Server


First check the OS compatibility for you motherboard here:
http://www.supermicro.com/support/faqs/os.cfm

Then, if compatible, check the IDE/SATA setting. Change the hard drive controller settings from IDE to AHCI or vice versa to see if the OS kernel panics on boot. If that does not work, please reply with your OS version and motherboard model.

Menus Locked in BIOS of 5014c-mt super server. Cant navigate to any sub menus... How did this happen????


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1u/5014/sys-5014c-mt.cfm

Try to reset the bios, by removing the cmos battery.
And insert it again.
This will clear the bios, to factory settings.
But you have to setup the bios again: date, clock, boot settings etc.
When you get it running again, try upgrading the drivers and bios to the latest version.

Hope this will help you.

I have Max computers, Supermicro server with 4 Seagate 120 GB drives, an Adaptec Serial ATA RAID controller card. I formatted the drives with the built in utility, now when I try to load Windows Server...


You need to load the RAID driver for your controller. Go to Adaptec's website and download the 2003 driver for it. You will put the files on a floppy disk and load them at the F6 prompt during Windows Setup (right after it boots from CD). If you don't have a floppy drive/disk, then use nLiteOS.com to integrate the drivers (text-mode) into your installation media.

I have dell 4600 pe serveri want to install Server2003 os i have configured raid 1 on the machine every thing is fine but! on boot process it display message no Boot Device Found Press F1 to continue F2...


The hard drive needs to be set as the first SCSI ID device boot device..
The hard drive needs to have the jumper set to SCSI ID 0, the CD and FDD can be set to SCSI ID 1 and SCSI ID 2. No SCSI devices can have the same SCSI ID number unless it is on a different SCS controller.

Need help on SuperMicro SuperServer 7043M-6!!


ok, all you have to do is reset CMOS. the same thing happened to me once I tried to install windows on my supermicro board. What you have to do is load the bootable CD that came with the board and follow the instructions in your book.

What happens is that windows does not have the drivers for the supermicro RAID and SATA components. The board will recognize these on it's own until you go to install windows improperly. Windows does not have the drivers for those, realizes it, and says "Windows has stopped to prevent damage" but it does it anyway. Just clear CMOS, read the book with the board on how to install an OS, and try again.

Clearing CMOS: This can be done by taking out the 3.5v watch battery you see on the board for about 5 minutes. Another and riskier way is to clear CMOS by shorting the pads. On a diagram of your board, you should see CMOS Clear. Find those two pads on you board in that general area from the diagram. You'll know you've found it because the board has CMOS Clear printed near them. Just touch them with a screwdriver for 5-10 seconds. CMOS should be clear and ready to start new.

WARNING! Be careful when clearing CMOS with the pads, if you stick the screwdriver in the wrong place, you could damage your board. Be sure to unplug your power supply before working on your machine (I'm sure you know this.) and be sure to get the correct drivers for windows this time! Oh, and rechange any settings you changed in CMOS since it has been reset to the factory defaults.
