    i tried exactly what you said to clean up my system unit, im using compressed air to clean up the dust inside but nothings happen, the error still persists.

    Another additonal info with regards to my server, last day, we have power interruption and it so happened that our UPS cannot supply enough power to my server, but only one server is shutting down that day that is my hp tc2110 server. So i started it up, then before it goes to windows startup, i heard a long beep and it cannot be stop. But when im in the windows startup, i got an error says that "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \Winnt\System32\Config\Systemced startup options for windows 2000, press F8. You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows 2000 setup using the original setup floppy disk or cd-rom. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair."
    This is the entire message appear at first.

    So, i boot it with my original windows 2000 bootable cd, but i found out that i cannot even press the recovery console or 'r' for repair but instead it says that the "windows cannot locate the system into your drive. Press F3 to exit setup".

    Then, i tried fixing it through Hardware matter. I dettached SCSI to my other Hard Disk drive which is in RAID, i only used one Hard Disk Drive at this time and i found out that it works with one Hard Disk attached, so the next things i did is dettached the Hard Disk Drive which is my currently used drive and attached again the second Hard Disk Drive but i found out that the problem "\winnt\system32\config\systemced" which is i discussed while ago, i found it in the second drive. So, i made a conclusion that the problem is on the Second Hard Disk Drive, but when i tried using the first Drive which is working Drive, i found out that it halted. Which means, that i cannot go to startup windows, and i got another error that says " Disk I/O error: Status =00008001".
    Take note that this is my working drive which i tested while ago..

    I tried using windows 2000 bootable CD to fix this problem but i cannot proceed to recovery console, and even if i tried to format or reinstall the Drive, i also got an error which says " The windows cannot locate the system drive. Press F3 to exit setup."

    I dunno what to do..

    Please help,

    Thank you in advance.

Some simple things it could be...Check the screws on the mainboard holding it to the case. The mainboard uses these screws to ground the board and sometimes they can loosen up from heat & cold expansion over time. Also dust is conductive and if enough gathers on the board it can cause problems also. So use some compressed air on the mainboard to clear out the dust. And also a power supply going bad can cause problems like this. If you have another computer with a working power supply try swapping it out and see if that works. More info on the setup would be helpful.

I cannot install windows 7,no disk seen are there drivers for raid smart array 5I for windows 7? DL 740 G1 , 8 x 2700Mhz+40GB ram , 4 x 73gb Raid 5


Not quite sure what your problem is but I would recommend getting Windows Server for a server like this. The HP site recommends the following OSes: Microsoft Windows 2000,
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter) ,
LINUX (Red Hat, SuSE) or Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Edition. It is unlikely Windows 7 will install on this 5 year old server.

Hi, i have a MPC Netframe 3610 server with windows 2000 server installed. now i want to install windows xp but i get the folllowing error: no disk found after boot from cd. why?


You will need to use the F2 option during the initial loading process to load RAID drivers for whatever RAID controller your hard drives are connected to. You caould probably get around it by installing an internal IDE hard drive and loading the OS to that too

We have a Dell Poweredge 4400 & a Dell Poweredge 2300. Both have amber lights blinking - hard-disk failure indicators. They are using RAID. What do I need to do?


Go into the RAID setup during bootup (not always in the BIOS), but will post somewhere on startup (should say SCSI/SAS Controller card press CTRL + M to enter setup) or similar.

When in the raid setup check to see the status of the drive(s).

Was the machine running and it's just happened etc or are these machines you have obtained and are plain not working?

My HP Proliant ML370 G4 can not boot. 1 of the logical drive has a problem and in interim recovery mode. how come it can not boot? there is also an error saying the battery is unable to charge. cache...


dear erwin,

as per your writing the server raid has broken .. its may be a problem with a hard disk , first you have to check the hard disk state . to do that you should enter into raid bios . don't try to something on that , just see the status of logical drive then which are the disks includes on that raid

in you post also it may give the details of failed disk ids

then you may have problem with your batt. unit , for that please do the above steps first then back with that...

Performed a clean installation of windows xp sp2 which I purchased and the installation won't complete it says error 1 cannot boot from drive how to fix this ?


you need a raid controler then use a raid driver disk before install windows, because you use sas as primary disk. these disk is for unix and server blade server, using sometimes windows server as Op System.
is a tradicional steps when using special hard disk

RAID6 problemme


Raid 6 will tolerate two simulatneous hard disk failures. So the posibility for data loss is very less. But the rebuilting steps defers for different server products like IBM and DELL. But normaly when u change a new hard disk the server will automatically starts the rebuilding process.
