Question about SuperMicro COMPUTER EATX MBD X7DBE 5000P DCXEON FBD DDR2 SATA2 VGA (X7DBE+O) Motherboard

X7DBE no boot after configuring the adaptec RAID controller

I have X7DBE MB with a graphic card ZOTAK GT218IONGPU-A-E (I don't use the internal card). When I configured the adaptec RAID (0) with 2 HDD's and rebooted the system and after the fans reduced their speed, the only thing I saw was a DOS blinking cursor on the left and that's all. When I removed the graphic card and used the internal the system continued booting. Is there a conflict on the addresses or IRQ? What's the reason and how can it be solve? I saw "Known Limitations" that says: The ASR-2405 and ASR-2045 do not support the SuperMicro X7DBE. motherboard. Adaptec recommends using the SuperMicro X7DBE+. Is there a connection?

there will be no dos prompt on a machine with a newer version of windows. if you have wndows 2000 or later, you can use the windows disk to repair the boot sector.

SOURCE: Supermicro X6DAL-TG boot problem

I have 3 of these boards; however, they all have the Nocona Xeon with a Front Side Bus speed of 800MHz. The manual does not say anything about using a 533fsb. A second thought was if your power supply is an ATX with a 24 pin power connector and two +12 connectors one 8 pin and one 4 pin? The manual states all three need to be connected for the Xeon Processor.

SOURCE: Hello, I have buy a Supermicro

I dont have specific info on this board, but most of the time you may need to set up a jumper to support 2 cpu's or with the 1 installed go into bios and see if there is a setting there that you can set. Another possibility may be the other chip is bad...swap the 2 out to see if it works...then you can rule that out...go to is the manual for it...

You need to load the RAID driver for your controller. Go to Adaptec's website and download the 2003 driver for it. You will put the files on a floppy disk and load them at the F6 prompt during Windows Setup (right after it boots from CD). If you don't have a floppy drive/disk, then use to integrate the drivers (text-mode) into your installation media.

Did you make sure that your hard drive has been made into a "dynamic volume" instead to the usual "simple volume"? It has to be "dynamic" before your can put it into a RAID configuration. You will have to use your RAID Controller to create a dynamic volume or to make the hard drive part of a dynamic volume.

Not getting a drive letter from Compaq SCSI RAID setup

Did you see any new drives in the disk managemen screen? To get to the disk management, hold window key down and hit 'R', then type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.

If you do see the drive in the lower half of the screen, you need to initialize the drive either as dynamic disk or basic disk. Then you need to add a new partition and format it.

Good luck.

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.
