Memory and RAID Card for a Dell 1600SC

I have a Dell 1600 SC server running a RAID one and 2GB of memory. Today I wanted to upgrade to 4GB. I installed the RAM and for some reason it wouldn't take take the RAM I installed. I then thought maybe it isn't the correct RAM. So I placed the old RAM back in the server and I got the an error message again. It completely disallowed the use of the old ram. Not only that the RAID Card went beserk. What could have caused this? Any advice?

    I think it may be an issue with the firmware on the RAID card. This may have happened when I removed Power from the Box. I had to replace the RAID card and now it works fine. I tried to emulate the situation again but didn't get the same results. Must have been a one time thing.

    I currently have a Dell 440 server with 1.4.1 BIOS. When I installed 2x 2GB memory is stated that the BIOS does not support the memory installed. If I updated the BIOS to 1.5 would this fix the issue? The OS is Server 2012 R2.

May be worth reseting the bios using the on-board jumper.

Can an old HP Workstation xw8000 Computer that is currently using 512 RAM (PC2100 registered 184 PIN ECC DDR SDRAM DIMMs) be upgrade using 4GB Kit (2 X 2GB) PC2100 Registered 266MHz 184 pin DDR SDRA


According to a couple of people I have conferred with, that RAM should work.
Take a stick of the old ram out and make sure the the cut out, in the new RAM, is in the exact place as the old sticks. It cannot be off by a micron, or it will not fit.

RAID menu will either be CTRL-A (if you are using the onboard PERC 3/Di) or CTRL-M (if you are using an addin PERC 3/4). If you are not seeing either of these options, then you may not have it enabled in the BIOS. In the BIOS (F2), go to Integrated Devices and make sure that RAID is Enabled. In order to enable RAID, your server MUST have a RAID key, RAID memory DIMM (different from system memory), and a RAID battery.

I just managed to mess up my 1600 SC with Linux Mandrake. I want to change it from raid 5 to Win 7 and turn it into a JBOD. I can't get it to recognize the dvd player so the win disc won't fire up...ideas?...


Is there a RAID card Eg PERC installed? If so, did you use the hardware raid setup? Also, Why do you want to put Windows 7 on a Server? Have you thought about Windows Server 2003 or 2008?

Open her up and check all the connections and also the BIOS settings. Does the DVD drive appear in the BIOS detection screen? I would suggest tackling the DVD issue first! Maybe that you need to change the order that it boots so that the DVD drive is first.

New hard drive won't go online on our Dell RAID server.


This needs to be reconfigured again. My suggestion is to call DELL again so that things happen they can still able to do the replacement of the hard drive.
