Question about Dell PowerEdge 6300 Server
Unfortunately we just installed a required A13 BIOS upgrade while online with DELL Support.
We were at BIOS A11 running WIN2000TS and are preparing to go to WIN2003 so we flashed the BIOS and end up hanging after the POST
Just after the firmware check and print to screen;
Hot Plug PCI v 1.18
Not sure if we can find someone who found away around the hang but we had an instance where hitting F2 allow us into the BIOS once. Unfortunately we did not have a Floppy in the FDD with a rollback BIOS on it so we missed the chance. No such luck at F2 since...
I know this sounds simple but did you reset the BIOS by jumping it after pulling out the motherboard battery?

When a BIOS is flashed it frequently resets all of the settings to default.
Go into BIOS settings and make sure that the proper boot device is selected.
I hope this helps.
