Gateway 995 boot problems

My problem is that a Gateway rack server, 995, doesn't want to boot up. I recently tried to install Windows 2003 service pack 1 and now it doesn't boot. I went ahead and tried to re-install Windows 2003 but it still doesn't boot. Everything seems to go ok when I install Windows 2003 but when it's done with the installation it reboots (expected ofcourse) but after it's done the hardware checks and appropriate posts, the screen goes blank and just sits there. I'm hoping someone has a clue and throw it my wy.

Thanks!

Maybe you can check you BIOS / your boot device priority and set it to your hard drive as default.

If this doesn't work, then the problem would be your hard drive (it's read / write function is not functioning properly.)

Hi ,I have HP Pav DV6 with windows 7.But I want to install windows server 2003 & its not allowing me.I want to make it dual boot,Plzz help.I need to do it urgently...


Hi,
Please understand that Windows 7 uses different startup files and procedures so it is expected that the original Windows Windows 7 system cannot be booted if you install a new dual boot Windows Server 2003 system. If you would like to install Windows Server 2003 on another partition, please do that first. After that, Windows Server 2003 will boot but WIndows 7 not. However, we can try the following method to make Windows Vista work again: Insert the Windows 7 disk into DVD-ROM. Click Start, click Accessories, right-click the command-prompt shortcut, and then click Run as Administrator. Type the following command at a command prompt and press Enter: Drive:\boot\Bootsect.exe /NT60 All In this command, Drive is the drive where the Windows 7 installation media is located. Note The boot folder for this step is on the DVD drive. 4. type the following commands at a command prompt and press Enter. Note In the commands below, Drive is the drive where Windows 7 is installed. Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows Server 2003" Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=x: (Note: x: is the drive letter for the active partition. For example, if 2003 is installed on C drive, device partition=c: ) Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /set {ntldr} path \ntldr Drive:\Windows\system32\Bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast
5. Restart the computer.

My window xp2 is not installing window installer 3.1 help me


Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable supports Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 or later, Windows XP, Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2003. Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 contains Windows Installer 3.1 and therefore can't be installed or upgraded by this redistributable.

Read the above, Windows Installer 3.1 already in in SP2. Why do you need to install it?

Gateway e-9425r was setup to boot via PXE. I want to boot off a raid. Have 2 250gb sata drives in system. Loading raid driver from gateway site on floppy. Windows install and bios don't detect raid or...


Copy RAID driver to mini diskette.
Boot server using Windows Server 2003 CD
The moment you see the blue setup screen press F6
After the setup runs for a little while it will ask you if you have any additional drivers you need to install
Then insert your mini diskette with the RAID driver and respond to prompts to load it.
Windows should no recognize the RAID controller and let you complete the installation.

Windows won't see all of my 4GB of RAM but BIOS does! Why?


Windows xp will usually only see 3.5 gbs of ram even in your motherboard can support more. WIndowns vista does recognize more RAM or i also believe windows xp 64bit recognizes more ram. Nothing wrong with ram or your computer its just your operating system.
