SOURCE: IBM System x3400 M3 7379 not booting displays orange colour (!), hangs at EFI Initialization what might be the problem. Thanks in advance.

The is an known issue on IBM M3 server models . It could either be a Motherboard or memory issue .
Check if there any amber on Memory . If there clean it and refix . Check amber comes again . If there replace memory .
If there is no amber on memory , then it could be a motherboard (UEFI firmware hang ) issue.
Replace it

Have you checked the IBM website for BIOS and any firmware to download and update for the controller? It can get to be a maze with server cards.

SOURCE: how to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400

The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

Good Luck

This would probably a motherboard issue. Sometimes firmware updates(Uefi and IMM) can resolve issue.

You would have to for motherboard replacement when no memory issue found on server
