    It sounds like RAID was not in use, otherwise the machine could potentially have booted up in spite of the failed drive. Can you confirm?



    When booting up, do you get an optoin to press a key sequence to enter a disk utility? This is the first place I would look to see the status of the drives and perhaps if the system was configured for RAID or not. If the system was configured for RAID, you might have some hope of getting it up on just the remaining drives.



    Sorry I'm not expert on this but since there are no other replies I'm just trying to give you some ideas.



    See what you can find in the disk configuration utility and let us know.

If the Bios did not detect the third drive, try switching it to a known working slot and see if you have a bad drive, or something wrong with the cage or cabling. The 3000 were shipped with either a 68 pin drive cage or a 80 pin drive cage. The 68 pin drives and the 80 pin drives are not interchangeable. To make matter worse, the drive cage would be configured as simplex or duplex. For duplex mode, you will need to connect two SCSI cables to the cage.

The SCSI driver is required to installed during the initial boot up for installation when additional drivers are asked .the new models dont come with a Floppy drive so an external floppy drive can be used .The detection of HDD s must be at the startup by the Bios os SCSI card.

I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350


I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

Use one or the other , not both.

Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.

Thanks
David
