Hello I have a query guys on hp ML350 server is that at the end of the inauguration of Windows blue screen appears You change the RAM first and then reduce Alhardat from three to two, but without the...


The system is not designed to use IDE hard drives which why you are getting a blue screen. It is designed to use SCSI hard drives and IDE CD/DVD drives. It might be possible to go into the server's BIOS setup and change the boot device from the onboard SCSI controller to the IDE controller. It is very likely that you will have to disconnect all SCSI devices to boot to IDE, if it is possible.
I hope this helps.

My Toshiba at start up it says check cable connection PXE-MOF: exiting intel PXE ROM No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


If I understand you well, before Windows loads, you get a notification about the ethernet controler which is waiting for a boot data stream to come from a local server. If you don't use a client-server network setup, you'll need to go to BIOS and change the boot options, so that your hard drive is set as first boot device, then DVD as second boot device, then USB drive as fourth boot device, and lastly LAN as fifth boot device.
What happens is that your PC thinks that the LAN is the primary boot device, and in corporate networks PCs get such a setup so that there's one large server feeding data to the local cubicle PCs. In some cases the server-dependancy is set to such extent that these cubicle units are just "dumb terminals". In your situation, your PC thinks it should also get boot infro from the LAN, but as your PC is not a part of a corporate network it waits in vain, and after a while it should move on to the second/third boot device, and eventually find that it has Windows installed localy and starts loading the OS.
So, to wrap up, you'll need to go to BIOS and set your local hard drive as the primary boot option. This will fix the problem only if your hard drive is OK and you've installed Windows on it.
If your hard drive is failing/gone, then your laptop may not even recognize it and therefore moves on to the next bootable device, which is usually the DVD, and then a USB drive and lastly LAN boot.
Anyway, go to BIOS, and see what is the current setup. If the hard drive is set as first boot option, then this is a good sign that you'll need a new drive.

If this was informative please give it a Thumb Up. Thank you.

What hard drives can I use as replacements?


Call Dell with your Service Tag.
Lifetime support is included on all Dell servers.
Last time I called them I dialed (800) 945-3355
They can sell you the hardware you need and guarantee it will work with your server. They might even be able to help explain the process of installing the drives.

I recommend that you use Acronis' Imaging software (www.acronis.com) so that you can make an exact copy of your data and apply it to the replacement volumes. If you are using a RAID1 array make sure the new array is completely built before applying your image. Builds can take a long time. I created a RAID1 array with 2-320GB disks and it took 3.5 hours to build the RAID1 array.

I hope this helps.

Can I add additional drives to Raid 1 in order to expand storage?


I am not familiar with the specific model, but my guess is you can setup another separate logical vlume by using a RAID1 for the new disks. You will not be able to add the disks to the existing volume.

If there is no data, and the array supports it you can delete the existing volume and setup a RAID 5 instead, which will use all 4 disks, as long as they have the same capacity.

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.

Ghost array0 over to newly setup array1 problems


I should assume the CD drive is SCSI? What sequence is it set to come up in? Set it at 2 if possible. Have you checked, or better yet replaced the CD drive? Will it boot with ANYTHING else?
That Hiren's CD is not uuummm, kosher? People having problems booting with it and all, plus the utilities may not have full function anyway. No matter what, you will need to f/disk the destination drive. You will still need the CD drive to install the program too.
Backup software will still make an exact copy of your drive also. You might want to consider a little better product, especially concerning disaster recovery. not to get off topic but, a quote from J. Bolton on backup & recovery
"What will you do if a user overwrites a 1000page doc with a blank file with the same name? What will you do if one of multiple server apps goes bonkers? If the mainboard dies how will imaging get your system back? Do you stock a spare board so the image restore will work on the exact same hardware? After a system crash, Acronis True Image Enterprise Server allows you to perform a full system restore, a bare-metal restore or just a restore of individual files and folders.
Complete system restoration can be performed to an existing system, to a new system with different hardware or to a virtual machine. You could setup a whole new system and dump the image on that.
