Cannot boot from usb. dell serverPoweredge 2650


Try entering the BIOS (usually by hitting F2 or Delete during the boot up sequence) and looking under the boot menu for the USB drive. Some older systems cannot boot from USB. You might have improperly formatted the USB drive. What are you trying to boot into?

How to install hyper v on dell 2650. Can Windows 2008 with hyper v be installed on a Dell 2650?


Hello,

Yes, Server 2008 will install on the 2650 as long as you make sure you have enough RAM and hard drive space. Once you have Server 08 installed, you will have a to-do list to help with setting up hyper-v.

Good Luck

My Dell inspirion 2650 won't charge.


Try using a different power adapter. They sell for around $25 and up on the internet. Dell adapters burn out quite often.

How to transfer OS and data to newer Poweredge server


The new RAID controller should read the data from the drives and work without difficulty. You will need to transfer all drives at the same time. Be sure to put the drives in the same spot in the new server.

Here are the bad news parts:

1. Your data is at risk. Make sure you do a good backup before trying this.

2. It is far more likely that your performance problems come from disk access or memory than the actual processor. If this is the case, then you probably won't be helping yourself with the migration. If you haven't already done so, analyze what is causing your performance bottleneck to make sure you are going in the right direction.

I have a working Dell Poweredge 2650 with 2 x Xeon 1.8Gig processors, 5 x 36GB hard disks, running Windows 2003 Server. I have recently purchased a newer Poweredge 2650 with the same configuration except...


You should be able to do this by moving the drives all at once ALL DRIVES MUST BE PLACED IN THE SAME SLOTS 0,1,2,3,4, do not mismatch else it will be a nightmare ............HOWEVER BACKUP your data up if you are going this route,on paper it might sound like a winner,however not all that glitters is gold.controllers though they might be the same have different firmware which allow them to do different things,so if you are going to this the os drive raid 0 or 1 must be two seperate is drives.once this done,how is your raid set up for the other drives once you have a good back up to restore if there is any complication,move the over in the same order,remember POWER DOWN BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS .PS REBUILDING TAKES FOREVER.
GOOD LUCK

Does not reconize hard drive


turn off the laptop and then take out the hard drive from the laptop. Go ahead and reseat it back into its slot and then turn on the laptop and press F2 to go into the BIOS. It should see it in there. If it doesn't then you know the hard drive is bad and will need to be replaced.
