Server Companion CD for Gateway E Series 975 Server

I am looking for the Server Companion CD for a Gateway E Series 975 Server to reload drivers after a system crash when I had to replace two drives and the RAID card. Gateway sold their server business to MPC and I can find referenced to this CD, part # 7508521 but no where to download or purchase this. Maybe somebody, somewhere might have this, please.

    Yes, it then defers to another company, MPC. I can't find this download on either of their websites and Gateway insists the serial number is invalid, but it defers to MPC when I enter it and I get a component sheet so it is valid. MPS is in bankruptcy and I don't put a whole lot of faith in them as they seem to have bits and pieces of several companies.



    Thanks

    Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Bummer these companies combining and then going broke. Have you tried just some of the driver websites? Maybe someone has posted then in the past for that model?

    Have you gone to the gateway site and put in the serial number?

Send me your serial number to mpcsupport@cox.net. I run the new MPC/Gateway Pro support site and may have all drivers available

I reformatted my Gateway laptop hard drive. Now I am not able to connect to internet. What do I do?


Hi There,
The most likely course is that after formatting you havent installed the net work drivers (they are in the CD that you were given with the comp after buying it)
install the drivers then configure your network.

System Fault indicator light on in a Gateway 975 Rackmount Server


If it is on steady and green, the server is operating normally.
If it is on steady and orange, the server is "in a critical or unrecoverable condition"

This is according ro the manual located at http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Servers/8510289.pdf

If it is orange, for further diagnostics, you should see POST error codes, or hear relevant audible beep-code patterns, which can be interpreted by checking the tables in the PDF Server manual linked above. (Pages 125 and 128 respectively.)

If it's green, of course, you dont have a problem.

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.

How to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400


The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

Good Luck

Ibm x series 226 attempt to install os and says no harddrive


Make sure that the motherboard and/or disk controller recognize the drives during POST.

Then check and see if IBM has a server installation CD-ROM that you can use boot the server and automatically load the correct drivers to prep for the OS install. I have downloaded installation CD ISO files from HP and Dell that walked me right through the OS install.

Another important consideration is that servers frequently use disk controllers that are not included in the operating system's driver files.
For example, when installing Windows OS on a RAID controller you must press F6 immediately after the installation CD-ROM starts up.
Later in the installation you will be prompted to insert a 1.44 diskette with the driver for your RAID controller.

The only challenge is to find the correct version of the driver and get it on a diskette.

I hope this helps.

My Gateway 975 server will not boot and has a beep. It is not seeing the hard drives the amber lights are on next to the hard drives.


Either your disk controller has failed or all of the disks with orange lights have failed. Try transferring them to another machine to determine if the disks are ok. If the disks work in another machine, the disk controller on your server is trashed and you should contact Gateway for repairs. Otherwise, the disks are dead and you should replace them (hope you backed up your data!)
