If the computer is telling you that the hard disk is not found, then either it is not hooked up correctly, is set to "disabled" in the BIOS setup, or the hard drive is bad. Check those things in that order.
shell32.dll file is very important windows system files.It control all users grapgical settings, icons, anything related to graphic user interface of the Operating system.If shell32.dll cannot be copied during installation,the system never gets to GUI mode.Try using a New CD/DVD.it will solve your problem.
You mention on boot that the server shows a logical drive of 158GB, which obviously means the server is detecting the drives ok.
Quite often Windows doesn't have the correct drivers to support systems using RAID controllers such as IBM ServerRaid, so this is probably why the setup CD states "No HDD detected, press F3 to reboot". When the Windows Setup CD Boots, it should at some point (on the blue screen) at the bottom of the screen state something like "Press F6 to load additional drivers". If you can get the correct drivers from IBM website, and load them by pressing F6, Windows should be able to see the drives ok. Hopefully it will then be able to successfully repair the error.
I'm afraid that the server video cards on these are pretty poor, the only way to improve this is to add a PCI video card (I added a cheap MX440 to a server I run to get around this). If your PCI slots are all filled up then I'm afraid there's really nothing you can do.
You could TRY to decrease the color bit depth, and see if that helps. Often the video drivers don't support detecting when a higher resolution is possible due to a lower bit depth, or the cards don't actually use less storage for them. (the problem is a lack of RAM on the card to hold a full screen full of pixels at a higher resolution.)
This means that the non-volatile memory on the motherboard (also called "BIOS memory", or simply "BIOS" has got corrupted. This may be because the tiny battery on the motherboard is dead and needs to be replaced (I can't remember offhand if the ML370 has a BIOS backup battery, so that may not be it). In any case, you need to go into the BIOS setup program as the server starts up, correct any errors you find there and then Save Changes. You may find the only option initially is to Reset to Defaults. If so, accept that, save it, then go back into the BIOS setup and customise as necessary.
Are you over thinking this? Have you checked the source and target media's file systems for 1: errors and 2: suitability of file system format?
Have you confirmed the integrity of the source files?
Questions like this can seem simplistic but when diagnosing any problem always start at the beginning.
You are using an distro installer that is suitable for an IBM p655's architecture.
