How do you boot Up Server Hardware that doesn't have an OS?

I just got a Supermicro server and We have it connected to a router with an ethernet cable, a monitor with a VGA cable, and a CPU with a USB cable. When we start it up it repeats itself, on startup on the monitor view, saying that it can't connect, and can't find the OS. I am hoping someone can help me get it into a state, where I can actually use the thing! If you need any Additional Information please tell me!

Did the server come with an OS installed; or was it "bare bones" set up? Typically, "bare bones systems" do not include an OS installed. Additionally, if it lacks a Windows "Certificate of Authenticity" (COA) it most likely does not have Windows (OS) installed on it. You will need to supply, install and configure an OS version that meets your needs and in the case of server software - number of licenses, etc.

Here's a link to Windows Server Software available for purchase. You'll probably soon find that this software is not cheap. You pay for each user / seat and this can drive prices up very quickly.
If it did come with an OS installed, something is wrong. It sounds like the computer has an issue that is making reading hard drive impossible. This may be due to a BIOS setting that has been corrupted or even deleted - but otherwise incorrectly lists the hard drive installed (and possibly other hardware). This is recoverable if you can change the BIOS to reflect the correct hardware. A worst case scenario is that some or all of the contents of the drive have been lost. If it was purchased recently, you should contact the seller to get it resolved.

SOURCE: Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.

Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

Try to do port forwarding. Search for the port number that the game uses and open it on the router's Setup Page using Port Forwarding.

Cant install server 2012


Hello download a manual from the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon3000/3210/x7sbe.cfm

Check the settings in the bios.

Try to reset the bios to factory default.
And setup basic boot settings for the drives.
First boot device: cd/dvd
Second: the harddrive.
Try installing with only one harddrive (you can always add more later)
Check also the cd/dvd drive for fault.

The Os server 2012 is supported.

Good luck

Resolve Error Code: C7 on SuperMicro Server


First check the OS compatibility for you motherboard here:
http://www.supermicro.com/support/faqs/os.cfm

Then, if compatible, check the IDE/SATA setting. Change the hard drive controller settings from IDE to AHCI or vice versa to see if the OS kernel panics on boot. If that does not work, please reply with your OS version and motherboard model.

My server is keeping booting and can't log in to windows


Hello,

You issue could be both hardware and software related. The Blue Screen of Death is one that I don't like to see but can be easy to solve at times. First, I would recommend you recheck and hardware that was newly installed; memory cards, cables, etc. Verify they are connected or inserted correctly. Next, if this is a new install of Windows 2008, verify that your server meets the hardware captiablity for S2008. (Remember, this is a 64-bit os and you will need drivers if your server is 32-bit based.) You can find this out by inserting the Windows Server 2008 boot disc and run the Check System for Compatiablity function from the menu.
If you are certain that you have no hardware issues and the install was performed correctly, you may need to reinstall Server '08 and monitor the install for any exceptions that may occur.

Good Luck,

After moving to a new house/ new state, I can not get my HP 2035n to connect wirelessly to the router. It will print from any of our computers, but must stay connected to the router. I can find no...


The HP P2035N doesn't have a built-in wireless ethernet connection. It has a wired ethernet port. To connect to a wireless router, you need the HP Jetdirect ew2400 802.11g Wireless Print Server or the HP Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit or a similar device (note: not all third-party wireless print servers will work with the HP printer). Did you have something like this and misplace it during your move? If you did, try to find the print server to use the wireless option. Otherwise, continue wired ethernet option since it is working.

HP support for the printer (manuals, set up infomation, and drivers) is available here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3662025&lang=en&cc=us .

I hope this helps.

(HP models with a W at the end of the model number have wireless capabilities without any additional hardware.)

Your server uses a Super P8SCi Motherboard, and according to the manual for your server on page 4-2, you can enter the bios of the computer by rapidly pressing the DELETE key when you first power on the server. This will take youto the bios setup screen. At the top, you'll see an option called boot. Use the arrows keys to navigate over to it, and change your first boot device to the CD-ROM Drive. Then SAVE AND EXIT, and it will now boot from any cd before looking to boot from the hard drive.
