SOURCE: THE OS IS CORRUPTED AND THE CD ROM DOESN'T

it seems like a motherboard issue, after all you have done. you may need to replace the motherboard since it should boot up to the external drive if the issue is the hard drive alone.

Hi ahshan,
You need to enter the BIOS settings, enable USB boot, then disable all other booting devices, such as hard drive and network boot. This should force your PC to boot from your external DVD ROM.
Best wishes,
Graeme.

You will need an external USB DVD rom - recommend W7 premium - plug in the dvd rom power the unit up - hit F9 to select boot device - fit your dvd into the dvd rom then select the dvd rom as the boot device and follow the instructions. W7 has 99.9% of the drivers within the SOE to enable the devices for mini's are very basic

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

Can not boot dell 6650 from external dvd


Have you checked boot device options....from BIOS
Use F9 during boot to goto ROM-BIOS and change Boot device option to CDROM/DVDROM.
Insert Boot media or DVD-Win2003, to DVD-ROM device..
reboot Server, try now
If still issue.. Check to boot Server using some other media..
if other cd media works, then it could be DVD-Win2003 faulty, otherwise download firmware for CD/DVDROM and upgrade it and check if DVDROM works, otherwise you have to contact Dell Support..

No TMP or TPM has problem


do you have access to another dvd rom? you might order one and use it to test/ return it if it dosnt work.

you could always use an external rom.

cd/dvd roms have their own firmware (like bios) that could be damaged on yours.
