Xseries 346 XP Install Problem!

Hi, I'm trying to install XP on my server, however the windows install cannot find my HD... so, I've tried putting some SCSI drivers onto a floppy and adding them as part of the XP install but still doesn't work! the drive is being registered by the machine so I know it works, and I had Windows 2003 working fine previously. I'm guessing I'm not using the right drivers? can you point my in the right direction as to which drivers I should be using or if its another problem? Thank you :)

Problems with IBM Xseries 346 Server


Check Light Path Diagnostic which is located on the front side of server . It gives a clue of what's the issue . If you can't see any amber on Light Path Diagnostic , then its an indication of max logs logged on BIOS event logs. You may need to restart server > Get into Bios and clear all event logs . This would remove the information sympol from server .

Physical drives not found


I"t says one logical drive is offline and two physical drives are defunct."


sounds like RAID. Try booting up off of one drive. If there is no OS, try keeping one drive in the drive bay and see if you get a orange light then. like dereknewland said, could be the backplane.

Xseries 346 wont boot


You don't say whether or not your os is on the RAID 5 partition. Assuming that it is (for performance reasons, this is not recommended) then you should check to see if you have the option of configuring a separate raid configuration on your raid card (e.g. do you have a card with more then one RAID channel?) If this is so, I would create a separate RAID 1 array and install the OS just on that. Then you can mount the RAID 5 array with your data intact. Once you're up and running, you can remove the old OS partition, as it's no longer needed.

Install windows xp on a IBM xseries 200 8479 computer


You have to download the scsi driver from the ibm site. You'll need a floppy and floppy drive. When you boot with your xp cd to setup press F6 to install driver.

Link to your IBM. Since IBM have different models you have to type it at the provided link.
