I need the boot sequence is network, CD, and HD. I used PXE+Kickstart to install Redhat. Everything is fine until reboot it after installed the box. The booting is hung up at "Exit PXE ROM". It suppose to start to boot the box from HD, but it is waiting there forever. If I change the boot sequence to let boot the box from HD first. It works fine. I have severl different machines using the same method to install redhat. They work perfectly. My question is why the booting process is hung up at "Exit PXE ROM"? and How to solve it. Does the NIC has some defect?

First, it's not booting from a CD or Hard Disk if you've reached that error. The 'last-ditch' effort to boot is to attempt a PXE boot from the network card, but your Ethernet cable isn't plugged in. Unless you know you've setup such a PXE boot server, you'll want to check the BIOS settings to be sure the CD-ROM is set to boot first, followed by the Hard Disc. Be sure you have Disc 1 of the Linux installation set in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot. If you don't get the install screen, you may have another issue (bad CD-ROM Drive, bad cable/controller, no power to CD-ROM, etc.)
Another note on the DL380, if there is a RAID controller, you'll need to setup the RAID before installing the OS. You'll want to make sure your hard drives are properly installed and aren't failed. The RAID configuration screen will verify the RAID status once it has been initialized, which will somewhat verify the drive status.
Your computer is trying to boot from a Network or Lan. You need to go
into the Bios or System Setup and change the boot order or boot
Reboot the computer and notice what key the screen says to hit to get
into the Bios or System Setup and hit that key. Change your boot order
or boot sequence. The best sequence is to have the CD Drive 1st and the
Hard Drive 2nd. Changing this in the bios or system setup will make
the change permanent. Just make sure when you boot the computer that
nothing is in the CD drive unless you have a repair disc or operating
system disc in it.
You could make a temporary change but then you
will have to change it every time you boot. If you notice the screen
when you boot it also gives you the key to hit to change the boot order
or boot sequence. This will allow you to change it just for this time
that you are booting.
In the BIOS, look in the boot options and take the "other devices" or "other" out of the boot sequence. Also check to see if boot from LAN is enabled. If it is, disable it. PXE is a protocol that will enable you to boot from a network drive or server. When it says that it failed, it is because it could not find an OS on the network
think there is a problem on the hard drive, you should formatting the
hard disk using a third party, I usually use Hiren's BootCD that will
be found at this link. you will download the file *. iso than burn to a CD, now try to boot from cd rom with that cd inside. later you will see some options there reply from the CD, choose partition magic. from here you will understand what to do next reply. may be useful.
Boot sequence isn't enough. You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network.
It could be that the the HDD controller on the motherboard is gone, that's why it does it with several HDD. By the way go under the BIOS and check the Boot sequence, make sure that HDD is first, because pxe error occurs when you select to boot the computer through a network device. If it doesn't find it, that's what it shows on the screen, it can find the MBR.
