No bootable device detected


If you strike F1, the system retries as said in the comment. That does'nt solve anything. Rather strike F2 which allows to enter the setup menus of your computer.
In this area you should understand what you are doing. Any update of setupdata may prevent further restart. At least take note of values and changes. You exit setup via a question "update Y/N". Then the computer restarts.
Anyway, in the setup menu you may inspect the devices and see if you the system identifies the disk. If not it may come from a bad connection of hard disk (sata pins, ...) or from low level disk information (format information).
With setup menu you may get in the boot order menu, that allows for the selection of an alternate boot media. You may boot on an installation media, ( install DVD generally, like originall windows install DVD) in order to understand and repair the situation, or from a rescue system like UBCD. You may also try Ubuntu from the CD without installing, just to verify if you may see the disk in the configuration.

Install of windows 2003 server


1) is it an old server, perhaps the DVD drive needs cleaning 2) Perhaps the Windows DVD needs cleaning, check for scratches. 3) is the Windows DVD an original? if it is a copy or download, maybe the DVD is not bootable or the image is damaged 4) is the installed Drive definitely a DVD, the drives in that server were optional so are you sure it is not just a CD drive that is installed.

How about downloading or creating a bootable USB image and try booting from that. Look online, Win2003 Server USB images may be available for download

How can install windows xp in proliant ml 150


Hello,

As long as the server meets the XP minimum spec, you can insert the XP boot disc and reboot your server. As long as the CD/DVD is bootable, you should be ableto install XP without incident.

Good Luck,

I have dell 4600 pe serveri want to install Server2003 os i have configured raid 1 on the machine every thing is fine but! on boot process it display message no Boot Device Found Press F1 to continue F2...


The hard drive needs to be set as the first SCSI ID device boot device..
The hard drive needs to have the jumper set to SCSI ID 0, the CD and FDD can be set to SCSI ID 1 and SCSI ID 2. No SCSI devices can have the same SCSI ID number unless it is on a different SCS controller.

Can i change this server into a home pc and what do i need to do first


I think you want to change the server operating system to windows XP or Vista. Is that it? If so yes you can. But there are things you need to do before proceeding. Here they are:
  1. Back up your data
  2. Make sure that you have the drivers of your third party device drivers (i.e. NIC, VGA, Sound Card etc...). check if your drivers are compatible with your new operating system selection. Otherwise download them from the manufacturer's site.
  3. Prepare a bootable installation cd of the Operating System (OS) of your choice. make sure you have the serial numbers ready as well.
when done doing this follow these steps
  1. Boot your PC. At the manufacturers logo page press F12 (commonly it is F12 but some computer models use F11, check it out on the logo page) to select the boot device.
  2. Insert the OS installation cd/ dvd into your drive.
  3. Select the CD/ DVD drive to boot from
  4. if you are installing a Windows OS, when the "Press any key..." message is displayed just press a key on your keyboard.
  5. After this check out this support page for installation detail of the OS of your choice

I'm trying to install Microsoft Server2003 on a Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server. I belive that the CD ROM is faulty since it doesn't boot off it even though I have the right settings in BIOS. I try to connect a...


Another common way around installation is to copy the whole contents of the CD / DVD to a hard drive.

There are a few methods.

My proffered is to make a bootable flash drive on another machine with known working capabilities that will bot into either an XP-pre installation scenario or a Dos based one.

From there it is often possible to start the installation or even copy the required files to a drive on a machine.

Advantage of copying the files is that the CD / DVD would never be needed to add additional component as they are stored on the machine itself.

That also speeds up installation dramatically.

Bios consideration mus be taken into account when booting from flash drives.

Proper external Hard drives are another viable option

Unable to boot to anything external.


Save yourself some trouble. Pull a CD/DVD drive out of another computer or just buy one. They are very cheap. Connect the CD/DVD drive to the server and install the OS as usual.

If you are lucky WS2008 will already have a compatible SCSI/RAID driver. Otherwise, you will need to press F6 and install the driver from the floppy.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

CDROM and with a bootable CD is not been detected


Same solution as posted before if you need to boot from a DVD: take a Dell laptop CD/DVD combo drive, remove the screws and all and exchange the PowerVault CD drive unit with it. Same internal connector. Can't remember what model I stuck in, but I had to keep the front panel of the drive since it was slightly different, I probably could have glued it, but.... That's a server machine no one is ever going to see but me! :)

That also gave me a CD-Burner which is a decent addition in case you need to quickly burn a CD/make a backup/boot disk (like a "ultimate Windows CD" boot to fix anything that could go wrong).

New installation


Hi digggger,
Could please explain in more detail what you are attempting to do? Is it that you want to have a dual boot system? Meaning you wish to use the same hardware and be able to boot into the system of your choice at startup?
