I am setting up a Xseries 345 server using ServerGuide 7.14 everything runs fine untill it start to copy files it than gives me a blank screen and nothing happens after that

This is probably a Server Guide issue. You may check with one step lower verion and one step higher version of server guide. It may solve issue.
If that doesn't work, you may have to manually install OS without server guide. You can use a either use a floppy drive or pen drive to load controller driver. Once installed, rest of the drivers can be downloaded from IBM site or install from server guide cd

Can not install 2003 server in ibm x 236 as it is showing no drives are present


You should download the IBM ServerGuide software in order to install win 2003 on 236 server.
You can download it from the below link. It's a image file , so after download burn it into cd and boot server from cd and follow the instructions .
That's all

Dont remember password to log on how do i fix this

If you are using a server OS and never created a password recovery disk, you'll have to reinstall the server OS. Due to the strong security settings in server based OS's, there is no way to "break in" to the server without the password. It's this way to prevent unauthorized access to the server.

How do i get a IBM Xseries server to recognize a serverraid card

IBM Serverguide will most likely get you going again. Go this link: You can download the ISO image for the version of Serverguide that will let you configure your system. If you have a Xseries 360 version 7.2.03 should work.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Erase data from IBM x serie 306 Model: 8836-2MX

I'm assuming that you have SCSI drives in there. IBM has a built-in utility to manage these drives. Just watch the boot messages and it will tell you what key to press to bring it up.

Even better would be to go to the IBM site and download the image for the IBM Serverguide. I think you're looking for version 7.4. Check this link:

Ghost array0 over to newly setup array1 problems

I should assume the CD drive is SCSI? What sequence is it set to come up in? Set it at 2 if possible. Have you checked, or better yet replaced the CD drive? Will it boot with ANYTHING else?
That Hiren's CD is not uuummm, kosher? People having problems booting with it and all, plus the utilities may not have full function anyway. No matter what, you will need to f/disk the destination drive. You will still need the CD drive to install the program too.
Backup software will still make an exact copy of your drive also. You might want to consider a little better product, especially concerning disaster recovery. not to get off topic but, a quote from J. Bolton on backup & recovery
"What will you do if a user overwrites a 1000page doc with a blank file with the same name? What will you do if one of multiple server apps goes bonkers? If the mainboard dies how will imaging get your system back? Do you stock a spare board so the image restore will work on the exact same hardware? After a system crash, Acronis True Image Enterprise Server allows you to perform a full system restore, a bare-metal restore or just a restore of individual files and folders.
Complete system restoration can be performed to an existing system, to a new system with different hardware or to a virtual machine. You could setup a whole new system and dump the image on that.

The disk that comes with the machine is called the NOS in the manual. It is also known as ServerGuide 6.0.3 which will config your Netfinity up to Win2000 Server. I used ServerGuide 7.3.06 to install Windows 2003 Server. The latest version (IBM ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD v7.4.17) is on the support IBM web site:
