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.
These are EACH... DIFFERENT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION ERRORS at boot Check that you have not changed any hardware/added any hardware and that these changes were/or have not TAKEN EFFECT yet Power down system.... use CMOS RESET pin config jumper to reset your boot configuration(s) changes Multi-"BEEP" error messages are usually connected to RAM CONFIGS. and I would suggest uninstalling ram chips..... but ONLY AFTER FULL SYSTEM "power drainage"!!!... i.e. pulling power plug from your PSU, removing system battery or unplugging it's terminal wiring mobo connector, and pressing the POWER BUTTON on your system
Hi Fyamine, While booting go into the BIOS, use either the dedicated keys or +/- to enable/disable the CD ROM boot ( in the Advanced section of device management), then go into the advanced boot tab and change the boot order (it should be CD->HDD->Pxe->Disabled by Default). After that, restart the server and wait for it to boot from the disk.
