Hi: i have hp server ML 370 with array smart 642 controller and i replace hard drives to clean and check but when turn on the server get me many messages no scsi boot device found and next line scsi bios...


when did this beast last work.
see the manual yet>
there are many 370s ,which one, the full service tag answers that.
G , 2, on up. 9????????????
Proliant servers.
use google to find old manuals.
here is g2
https://www.manualshelf.com/manual/hp/hp-proliant-ml370-g2-server/compaq-proliant-ml370-g2-service-update.html

here is HP site covering retired products, I suspect your is..

HPE has the , 642 book here. (just a spec)

https://www.hpe.com/h20195/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=c04284123


if read that page it tells you the controller is only works with
SCSI
Compatibility with all Ultra320, Ultra3 and Ultra2 LVD family products.
it also tells you , it needs the HP utility tools to set it up properly


why would your clean disks boot? why say that?
what does this mean?
"and i replace hard drives to clean and check" surely you can elaborate the full story,
last run when?> what G number is it.
what drives , make and model. installed.
do you have the software setup seen on page 5 link just above.
quote
All Smart Array products share a common set of configuration, management and diagnostic tools,
including Array Configuration Utility, Array Diagnostic Utility (ADU), and Insight Manager.


this product is offically retired, by hp and only few books there.
but google finds many books, 15 years old now. (as old as...)
http://kmcs-service.austin.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c01127202-1.pdf


see this, it tells you what to do in 77 pages.

my guess is you get lost at Set the boot controller
(Chapter 4).
my guess, is that you have no HP sofware support kits.
just hardware there.... right?

next time tell the helper, full spec on 370 Gn G numer.
and full spec , on 642, version. and that you dont have the HP software kit to support this machine, it's no simple desktop, no at all.
at the least you get stuck here,

Create at least one logical drive, as described in Chapter 5.

Ths screen displays ERROR,Expansion ROM not initialized-PCI network controller on Motherboard. Bus:04,Device:04,Function:00 how do i fix this? I am trying to install win 2003 server ,system not...


The ProLiant ML110 server with System BIOS Version 16 supports a total of eight IPL devices. Four IPL devices, such as the IDE controller and the floppy controller, are integrated, leaving support for four additional PCI IPL devices (i.e., PCI card plugged into PCI expansion slots); however, the ProLiant ML110 has five PCI expansion slots. Therefore, it is possible to configure the ProLiant ML110 with five PCI IPL devices (such as SCSI controllers or NICs) and exceed the limitation of System BIOS Version 16
The resolution to the problem is to update the System BIOS Version 17 which supports a total of nine IPL devices and five PCI IPL devices. Update the ProLiant ML110 server to System BIOS Version 17
i could not include the url for the download because you did not especify the generation of your server
but follow this link
1.select your server with the corresponding generation
2. select the operating system
3. from the download list select the bios update to a bootable usb or diskete
4.install the os

Install an operating system (Windows Server 2008) on a used HP


Hi, Have you checked the BIOS? Check the Backup ROM option (change to Backup ROM)
If you haven't change the Boot Order: Go into RSBU and change the Order.
Note: If you have Scsi you do not need to do any additional things rather than this. If your product has a Smart Array Controller, during the POST, press F8 during the Smart Array controller ID to access the configuration utility, delete and re-create the disk array to wipe out whatever might be on the disks.
Feel free to contact again. Let me know what happened.
Thanks for contacting Fixya! (Please rate the answer as well)

I have HP proliant DL160 server. How i will make RAID two HD?


Try going into the RBSU(Rom based setup utility) and configuring SATA RAID in the advanced section.

This doesn't work for all versions - if it doesn't help, please be more specific about your configuration, i.e. what "G" level is the server? Hot plug or non hot plug drive? etc.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility


Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck

There are many configuration settings, although i personally would hunt down an SCSI hard disk, many will fit from many other models just like IDE ones
