Question about Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server
Does not boot into windows. there is a blinkng amber light , should be blue. Over the weekend the server must have had a hickup. ive tried to swith slots and that does not work . Is it my hard drives, or mother board , or ??? help. Thanks Mark
You must figure out if there is a harddrive controller running the drives. If this is a striped array I suggest calling support. Pulling all drives and it gets through the POST process the board is fine. Do not swap HDD slots unless you suspect a backplane failure. Most modern controllers support drive roaming, but why chance it....(if you have a hotswap bp)
