SOURCE: The server doesn't boot

You can download the drivers here:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WNT5&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PWE_FOS_XEON_4600&hidos=WNET&hidlang=en&TabIndex=
However, due to the many configurations available in the PowerEdge server 4600, there is no way for me to tell you exactly which controller driver to use. You will probably have to make a boot disk to feed the driver to windows 2000.
Comment back with specific controller model numbers, and maybe I can direct you to the correct download.

SOURCE: Dell PowerEdge 2450 Server issues

Power down thy system,pull the hard drive half way out remove all cards from the slots power up see if you go pass the processor etc,if not go into the system setup f2,integrated devices turn them all.see if you go further if you do go back in turn the devices on one by one,do not put the hard drives in yet.wait until you turn the scsi controler assuming you are using the integrated card.If you still cant the on board raid controler uses a raid dim if you can change thi note it must be the same type.
Good luck

SOURCE: I have dell 4600 pe serveri want to install

The hard drive needs to be set as the first SCSI ID device boot device..
The hard drive needs to have the jumper set to SCSI ID 0, the CD and FDD can be set to SCSI ID 1 and SCSI ID 2. No SCSI devices can have the same SCSI ID number unless it is on a different SCS controller.

hi!
This is a quite serious matter to be solved. The information you have provided is not enough at all.
What you have to include in here:

  1. First, Be precise. Don't assume.
  2. How did you recognized the failure. Which indicators or POST/BIOS/RAID BIOS reported you the errors? Was it from the OpenManageSA?
  3. Please specify the Hardware Controller model and manufacturer with the version (RAID controller).
  4. Which Operating System do you run (or ran)?
  5. Are these disks Hot Swappable?
  6. Have you used hardware RAID controller or software RAID? Provided by OS.
  7. Do you have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator?
  8. How do you describe the RAID configuration? Are you sure that Disk 1 and 4 are mirrored to 2 and 3? You must be precise. Because raids can be used in many ways. You can combine any two disks and mirror them to any two disks. Even though it prevents hard drive failures, if your OS had an issue Mirrors may not be an option to recover it.
  9. That message is a Warning Message. However Drive Roaming has completed. You don't need to worry about that.
  10. If your BIOS has associated firmware controllers you could rebuild the array. But you may have to add new disks to replace others. You may need to update the firmware if necessary.
  11. Then if you plan to use disk 2 and 3, you have to position them to 1 and 4. Then try to rebuild the array. But you may have to have Controller Drive installed on the disk. That varies from type to type. So I cannot say exactly. However if the mirroring of the OS is done to one disk, that disk would be enough. But you have to be certain. Reconfiguring should be done using both the disks replaced if you do not know anything about the configuration.
  12. Check BOOT ORDER. Change it if necessary. If disks fail again check one by one and repair them using a separate machine.
  13. Use Dell Software (OpenManage Server Administrator, if its the one available). Rebuild and or Resync the array.
  14. If boot record errors occur, you have to boot from CD/DVD and repair the Boot Record and/or MBR.
  15. If you need any other issue like BSOD, please write them down. Make sure the OS is not corrupted. If you backed up the System Status, restore it in such a case. Do an In-place Upgrade otherwise (will replace the OS files only, not data).
  16. Use the manuals for Dell Server and RAID Controller if you do not know how to use properly.
  17. If all the options are not working, you have to contact an engineer at Dell.
Feel free to contact again.
Thanks for using Fixya!

PXE boot slow, creation of RAM disk failed


RAM disk requires actual memory in order to create a 'virtual' drive. My first instinct would be to check to ensure that RAM is actually available. Perhaps memory is faulty or configured improperly.
