Question about IBM Netfinity 4000R 8652 Server

1 Answer

IBM starting problem.

Hi there, please any help! I got an IBM Netfinity 4000r with Fedora Core 6 installed and it was working right until I decided to install Windows 2003. Because my CD-ROM is not working properly I decided to put a different one to use during installation. After a while I got a blue screen with an error message, and I rebooted the server. Now when I turn the server on, the computer starts up normally but the monitor looses the signal coming from the server right after the server initiates memory. So basically the monitor receives signal from the server for like 20 seconds till the server is done initializing the extended memory.

It is certainly not ok for it to take so long to show bios.

This usually means there is a hardware conflict at low level (not a broken part)

This can occur if there is more than one disk that it has to look at that it cannot work out (this may be in your case)
you may want to start the system with only one disk in and get i runing from there before adding extra storage.

May also be of help to may

You did not say which OS you were intending to install but thee is plenty of documentation for that around

16X8 DVD Dual won't read dvd.

set it up on a seperate IDE Channel, or change from master to slave. Or Vice-Versa.
Secondly you could try re-installing windows 2000, this should repair any corrupt or missing drivers.
Finally see the manufacturers website, to see if any firmware upgrades are available.
Hope This helps.

Installation of Fedora core 6 on Amd+ASUS

Your computer is booting up in a video mode or refresh rate that your monitor cannot support. Not sure how you would go about changing it without reinstalling Fedora or doing it from the command line.

If you're using an LCD, try an old CRT monitor, may be able to use the mode you selected. LCDs can usually only support 60Hz modes.

The disk that comes with the machine is called the NOS in the manual. It is also known as ServerGuide 6.0.3 which will config your Netfinity up to Win2000 Server. I used ServerGuide 7.3.06 to install Windows 2003 Server. The latest version (IBM ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD v7.4.17) is on the support IBM web site:
