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.)

My Floppy, CD ROM, and Tape Drive do not respond to inserted media - Gateway 4000847 Quad Xeon Processor Server Motherboard - Windows 2000 Pro NT sees CD & Floppy


Considering this is three different devices it means that there is a problem with the way the IDE and parallel device are connecting to the OS.
I would try removing the cables for 2 of the devices, then uninstall the remain device driver and reboot letting the device reinstall.
Once reinstalled test again, this may isolate the issue at the very least and could get one of the device up and running.


regards,
Mike

To repair your installation of Windows, follow these steps:

1. Insert the Windows Server 2003 CD in the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
2. If the Windows CD displays the What would you like to do? menu, click Exit.
3. Turn off your computer, wait ten seconds, and then turn your computer back on.
4. If you are prompted to start your computer from the CD, do so.

Note You must be able to start your computer from the Windows Server 2003 CD-ROM to run Windows Setup. Your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive must be configured to do so. For information about how to configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, see the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact your computer manufacturer.
5. After Setup starts, press ENTER to continue the setup process.
6. Press ENTER to select the option To set up Windows now, press ENTER. Do not select the Recovery Console option.
7. Press F8 to accept the licensing agreement.

Setup searches for previous installations of Windows.
* If Setup does not find a previous installation of Windows Server 2003, you might have a hardware failure.

Hardware failures are beyond the scope of this article. See a computer hardware specialist for more help or try the Hardware troubleshooter. For more information about the Hardware Troubleshooter, see the Windows Server 2003 Help topic "Using Troubleshooters."
* If Setup does find a previous installation of Windows Server 2003, you may receive the following message:
If one of the following Windows Server 2003 installations is damaged, setup can try to repair it. Use the up and down arrows to select an installation. To repair the selected installation, press R. To continue without repairing, press ESC.
Select the appropriate Windows Server 2003 operating system installation, and then press R to try to repair it.
* Follow the on-screen instructions to repair the installation.

Notes
o You might have to change the boot drive sequence in your BIOS settings to successfully start your computer from the Windows Server 2003 CD. Contact the manufacturer of your computer, or see your manufacturer's documentation, for more information.
o If you cannot start your computer from the Windows Server 2003 CD, you might have a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive failure or other hardware failure.

Hardware failures are beyond the scope of this article. See a computer hardware specialist for more help or try the Hardware troubleshooter. For more information about the Hardware Troubleshooter, see the Windows Server 2003 Help topic "Using Troubleshooters."
o After you repair your Windows Server 2003, you may be required to reactivate your copy of Windows Server 2003.

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.
