Re: superserver 6023-8r

If you have enough hd space and memory , just install ms virtual server / install server os , and you will be able to use as another server (virtual server).
you can connect to it by name / ip address etc., just like a real physical server.
good luck

Error in windows installation

Not sure if XP will recognise SCSI as the primary drives. Under Linux no problem but most Windows OS's were never designed to support SCSI since it is more of a server drive system not a common home PC setup. I am not a MS fan and have not used MS products for many years so things might have changed. Remember XP is no long supported by MS so you might run into more problems down the road. I loved XP and changed OS's once the Vista/7 garbage took place.

Hard disk not present in bios

Hello try to download, the user manual here:

By selecting: sattelite, and the full model number.

The number is located under the pc.

You're going to have to look around in BIOS for a setting to enable the SATA controller. You may also have to set it to "IDE mode"

But the harddrive could have a fault, try with a new harddrive.

Good luck

Want to change from SCSI to SATA. How can this be done?


You will need to change the backplane to a SATA type. (Fairly easy) Once done, you can change your hard drives and start using the new configuration.

Good Luck

Server is chirping; lights look normal

You need to check you smart sensors in bios most likely a hard disk failure. Yeah i believe the WD drivers chirp and some play music.

Restart and watch screen should tell you a bios key to hit.
Open and look for smart data should be around hard disk config
If it is not ther eyou may have a adon raid card in thta case you need to wait a little after the bios screen and there will be a bios screen for tha raid card as well.

SuperMicro superserver 6013P-i Windows 2003 After building power issues, this server constantly restarts. It gets to the windows screen for 10 seconds, then a blue screen flashes so quickly i can't even...

Hello here is the homepage:

Blue screen of death, means you have a bad driver or a system file.
I think the hard drive, is failing.
This is probably why, you can`t start in failsafe mode either.
But do check the ram modules, for fault aswell.

Good luck

I just recenlyt purchased a used SuperMicro Superserver 6021H server. I have two hard drives loaded in the bays. Just starting it for the first time and i don't get a boot-up, just a series of continious...

Could well be a RAM issue. There is a chance that reseating it may fix your problem. To do this, open up the case, making sure you undo all the necessary screws and it is unplugged, inside on the motherboard there should be at least one strip of RAM, (if your not sure what it looks like, google it and it should become quite clear), it wont have anything else connected to it. It is seated with two clips, one either end of the RAM, push these down and the RAM should easily 'pop' out. If there is more than one, do it to them all. Then push them back in, making sure that they are FULLY clipped back in, this is important as you can damage your whole system if they aren't.
If you still have the same error when booting, then if you had more than one strip of RAM, then take out the others and try them all one at a time on their own. Booting each time with only one RAM module in the system.
The RAM will look like this: laurence6821.jpg

Operating System Not found

normally , the OS is on 1 partition and data on another.
if you have this , no issue , re-format the 1st partition and re-install the OS , data will be untouched .
If you have is all on one partition (not advisable, loss of disk space , etc.,) , then boot from bartpe or ultimate boot CD, copy out the data , then re-format everything and re-install.
this should put you back to good stead.
if you have external hd , then copy out data to it, else, copy to network drive (another server etc.,).

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.

Need help on SuperMicro SuperServer 7043M-6!!

ok, all you have to do is reset CMOS. the same thing happened to me once I tried to install windows on my supermicro board. What you have to do is load the bootable CD that came with the board and follow the instructions in your book.

What happens is that windows does not have the drivers for the supermicro RAID and SATA components. The board will recognize these on it's own until you go to install windows improperly. Windows does not have the drivers for those, realizes it, and says "Windows has stopped to prevent damage" but it does it anyway. Just clear CMOS, read the book with the board on how to install an OS, and try again.

Clearing CMOS: This can be done by taking out the 3.5v watch battery you see on the board for about 5 minutes. Another and riskier way is to clear CMOS by shorting the pads. On a diagram of your board, you should see CMOS Clear. Find those two pads on you board in that general area from the diagram. You'll know you've found it because the board has CMOS Clear printed near them. Just touch them with a screwdriver for 5-10 seconds. CMOS should be clear and ready to start new.

WARNING! Be careful when clearing CMOS with the pads, if you stick the screwdriver in the wrong place, you could damage your board. Be sure to unplug your power supply before working on your machine (I'm sure you know this.) and be sure to get the correct drivers for windows this time! Oh, and rechange any settings you changed in CMOS since it has been reset to the factory defaults.
