Booting from cdrom

I installed scounixware 7.1.1 on above server. It keeps on rebuilding kernel ... for ever. To overcome the problem, I wish to reinstall from CD.
However, I am not able to do fresh installation from CDROM. Instead of starting fresh installation from CD, server accesses installed sco unixware and goes in loop of rebuilding kernel...

Pl help

Locate your copy of "SmartStart" (SS) for the proliant server. Boot into the Bios and check that the CDROM boots before the HD. Insert the CDROM Smartstart into the server and restart. When SS comes up you can use the array erase utility. Erase the array, reboot it and let it come up again with the SS disc. Create a new array, and choose the OS to install. Let it go all the way to create the partition and format. When it asks for the OS put in your disc and reboot. This should allow you to start over again. If you do not have the original copy of SS you may find one here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=344318&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18964&prodSeriesId=345557&lang=en&cc=us

Server boot


ntldr is part of the Master boot Record (MBR) it is used in conjunction with other files to allow the OS to interact with the Kernel.

you can copy the MBR record but it is specific to each PC so your options are rebuild server or restore from a backup I would recommend back up as all additional settings will be applied still.

Boot problem with IBM xseries 306 - SCSI Drive and SATA drive os is on scsi drive and wont boot if sata is installed. how do i force machine to skip sata drive


I think first u disconnect ur all HDD to server. then u enable ur booting HDD or operating HDD...and setup again....

Another way: If u have original windows ..u can use windows recovery disk ...then recover ur missing file(kernel).

Thanks

Unkown SCSI Problem


Hi Fatoil ,

Have you tried another SCSI port , another SCSI card , another SCSI drive , swopping if it is card problem or drive or both problem ?.

If you have a spare SCSI hd , plug it in to same port and see if it works . Swop to another port and see if the spare SCSI hd works. Swop to another SCSI card and see if spare SCSI hd works.

All this elimination will narrow down the problem .
SCSI cards are not expensive ,.
old working SCSI hds don't cost you anything if you have them.
Sending out the server for servicing will cost you.
I presume you don't have a maintenance contract for this server .
If you have , get them down to settle it .
If you don't , after you settle this matter , make sure you get a maintenance contract for all your critical servers / equipment.

Maint Contracts seem expensive when nothing breaks down. However , when they do , it makes every worry go away.

Good luck,
David

Server doesnt boot


First create a floppy disk with your RAID driver for W2K3 Server. Next boot the server with the W2K3 Server CD, and hit F6 when prompted, and S to add the specific driver for your RAID and using the floppy to get the driver installed.

Next boot to the recovery console of W2K3 Server. If it finds your hard disk, it will even ask for your Administrator's Password to continue. If this works, then you are probably home free.

Get to the command line of the W2K3 Server Repair console and perform some directory searches to see if the data is there and intact. You can also perform a CHKDSK from that console.

Once you have made sure your data is there and intact, type these two commands: FIXMBR and FIXBOOT

This should solve the problem and when you EXIT out of the console, it should reboot. Remove the CD and it "should" re-boot from the hard disk.

If you still have problems, let me know with how far you got with the steps above. I have another solution but need to know your RAID controller's model (ServeRAID 5i, 6i, etc).

PowerEdge 2600 does not boot up ?


you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.

your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

good luck

CDROM and with a bootable CD is not been detected


Same solution as posted before if you need to boot from a DVD: take a Dell laptop CD/DVD combo drive, remove the screws and all and exchange the PowerVault CD drive unit with it. Same internal connector. Can't remember what model I stuck in, but I had to keep the front panel of the drive since it was slightly different, I probably could have glued it, but.... That's a server machine no one is ever going to see but me! :)

That also gave me a CD-Burner which is a decent addition in case you need to quickly burn a CD/make a backup/boot disk (like a "ultimate Windows CD" boot to fix anything that could go wrong).
