I have a problem with:
Machine is HP netserver E800
Runs MS W2k SBS.
Hardware ? single PIII 933, board supports second processor
IDE onboard controller with CD
Problem booting up....
why not ask HP this. and not on the chat forums here,
this is NOT HP. not in the very least.
F2 sounds me , its the command to reload the OS.
did you lose the manuals on this server?
it tells you what F2 means, id be there in a heart beat at hP
in fact id down load all books on it now, because soon or now
there will be no PIII books at all, its a relic, pentium 3.
Can you boot to say a linux live CD.
or a window PE live cd?
your server will not boot to USB so, that out. (modern ways)
if yes your OS is dead, or HDD dead.
reload the OS. now. try that using the books for this server.
is it RAID? or one IDE disk.?
what does CD problem mean
why not tell the helper why is a CD in your hand
and how made it and if and OS install who's , HP or microsoft
we can not guess what you are attempting with CD in hand.
if the CD will not boot 3 disks,
2: linux live
3: windows live.
then the CD drive is dead, or you need DVD drive.
the newer OS needs a DVD drive, for sure.
i think (omg long ago) windows 2000 is on 800mb CD.
to boot CD you must tell BIOS to boot there first. force it.
true on all PCs and now impossible (near) with W10 and UEFI and secure boot enabled, (said or watchers looking here)
get a test CD with LINUX and test the boot.
this proves it can boot and BIOS is using it.
POST - memory count
power on self test or POST??????????????????
is this a BSOD , blue screen of ***** off a new CD from HP?
if yes the CD drive is DEAD< end of life gone and now reads corrupted data, as most do this old, buy a new CD drive.
this BSOD if is, can be seen on 1000000 of posts (messages about POST, LOL where the guy doing it, used CD-r disk that are pure JUNK> or a burner old that is trashed.
please post here X your P.O.S.T screen,. I always wanted to say that.
there you go.
