Question about Intel Server Board SE7501BR2 Motherboard
This could be any number of problems. First start with hardware. Is everything seated and connected correctly? Are the hard drives installed correctly. Are the power on pins on the board set correctly or pinned at all? Is the ram the correct ram?
Check the hard drives, are they functional, do they boot with other computers?
Use a volt meter and check that the power supply is producing the correct voltages on all the connectors and rails.
If that all checks out, it might be a bios error. Check your boot load order and if the motherboard is detecting the hard drives, check that the correct bios settings for OS management are in place as this is a server. Is the RAM power settings (voltage) and speed correctly selected? Will the computer boot from optical drive using a live CD? Will it boot from a USB live OS (like Ubuntu)?
Since it's not booting, you may not have compatible hardware or damaged hardware. The OS that's installed on the hard drives may not be able to load on the new (older model) motherboard due to driver incompatibility.
