As long as you have proof of purchase/paperwork......

Call Dell Customer Service.
Or E-mail them.....all info can be found on:
Dell.com!

You may be able to Download them....

Also Check your Poweredge Manuals......
Sometimes Dell is famous for having Everything backed up on a protected partition on the Hard Drive.......So a simple keyboard command (it might be "Ctrl+F11", not sure) at the bios boot screen can sometimes load the computer Back to it's original status.......

Also There's a better way if you don't mind ignoring all the CRAPPY software that comes preloaded with your operating system.......

Or, EVEN BETTER IDEA..........

Buy a New Copy of WINDOWS (I recommend XP PRO! since Windows 7 won't be released til around September this year......then upgrade to that.......SKIP VISTA......7 is way better, I would know!)

When You boot from the Disc, (True Windows XP OS Disk) you can delete ALL THE PARTITIONS and install a FRESH NEW WINDOWS INSTALLATION..........that's the best solution, in my opinion.........but call dell.......do both of these things!

My dell poweredge 2600 wont load up


  1. Can you access the Bios configuration on boot by pressing F2? Check the setting
  2. By load up do you mean your server software does not boot? use F10 on post from the utility partition main menu under Run System Utilities.
  3. Is the server working with RAID? Press CTRL + R and check the RAID
I am not going to say check all the cables because I am sure you will have already?!?

The Dell original standard CD drive shipped with the PE2600 is incapable of 'understanding' the latest generation of bootable CD's (no matter what the BIOS says).

As far as I can tell, it's not fixable in the firmware ..

However you can swap it out for a more modern drive - such as the TS-L462C (which is a plug in replacement combined DVD reader / CD reader/writer - and Dell post the required drivers on their PE 2600 web pages, so I assume it must be a 'supported' solution)

DELL Poweredge 2600 Bios FREEZES After Cpu check and before SCSI Drives check HELP!!!!


The BIOS check can freeze for many reasons.

Can you tell me if this is an existing system that was working fine and then had this problem, or is this a new (or new to you) system?

Can you give more information on what is actually showing on the screen?

Can i add 142GB of hard disk on Dell PE 2600 motherboard


You can always add more storage to a server, as long as you have enough internal connectors in the server. You can also purchase another scsi or sata backplane to add more ports if you're out of internal connectors.
You may also want to look into a SAN or NAS device to offload some of your not too frequently used data. Many SAN devices give incredible performance with pretty good scalability.

PowerEdge 2600 does not boot up ?


you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.

your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

good luck
