What you have to determine is why the system is not booting. Is it a software or a hardware issue? Try booting your laptop, and as soon as the machine starts to bootup, press the key or keys required to enter the setup (CMOS/BIOS). Check to see if the hard drive is being recognized by the CMOS. If so, check to boot devices and te boot order to be sure that the hard drive is selected as the firs boot device. If the drive is being seen and is the first device and it still won't boot, the problem is most likely a corrupted software load. Without a boot disk you are pretty much up the creek without a paddle for basic repair. If your machine has a recovery partition, you may be able to access it and restore the laptop to factory load, but all your programs and data will be lost if you do this. If the BIOS/CMOS did NOT recognize your hard drive, you can attempt to remove and reinstall it and try again. It that fails then the only solution is a new hard drive.

Emachines D4362 starts only after many button pushes


Sounds like you might have corrupt window system files or the machine might not be recognizing the hard drive.
Press the DEL button to go into the BIOS. Go to the section that shows you the hard drive. If it doesn't show you a hard drive model and shows none then your hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced. If your hard drive is recognized in the BIOS then you'll need to try and reinstall windows. If you can't get windows reinstalled then the hard drive is bad at that point as well.

Hi

The error message you are receiving "Inquiry command failed Using IBM-PC ServerRaid Host adapter" makes me think you are attaching the tape drive to the ServerRaid Controller, which is only for Hard Disks. There should be a normal SCSI interface for attaching tape drives, etc. It's possible that the ServerRaid card is a PCI (or older) plug in card, and the normal SCSI interface will be on the main motherboard. If you look on the IBM website for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it should hopefully make things clearer.

The reason you may not be seeing the hard drives in CMOS, is because you will need to use the IBM ServerRaid Utility to view and configure the disks.

Change the "master", "slave" jumpers in the back of the hard drive to the same config as the old one was, that's your problem. If you still have a problem, just run the drive on a seperate cable to the motherboard, then set the dvd drive to the opposite of whatit's set at now from the jumpers in the rear of the drive. Take out the battery frrom the board and let the cmos reset before powering back on.that's where the settings are stored.

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.

go to bios settings, usually F2 on boot, then CMOS setup, check that it is there, and if not try to have the bios search/recognize it. Save settings and reboot.

IBM Netfinity 5600 8664 81Y Server


The disk that comes with the machine is called the NOS in the manual. It is also known as ServerGuide 6.0.3 which will config your Netfinity up to Win2000 Server. I used ServerGuide 7.3.06 to install Windows 2003 Server. The latest version (IBM ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD v7.4.17) is on the support IBM web site:
