Did you experience a power event? Go to BIOS (F2), and make sure that RAID is Enabled. If RAID got turned off (power event, BIOS reset), then it will give you that message. If RAID is already enabled, then you may need to repair your operating system. If something else happened (drive failures, drives removed, etc.), then the array may be completely gone. Call Data Recovery services if it is critical you retreive the data.

    same problem.

    RAID is enabled. How do I repair operating system?

    You need to boot to the Windows CD and choose repair. The exact wording and commands once there will depend on your OS. You should be able to find it by Googling it.

Disable dhcp


You may need to go to BIOS setting and disable PXE Boot option. It should be under Integrated Devices, or the Network Device section of BIOS.

My dell poweredge 2600 wont load up


  1. Can you access the Bios configuration on boot by pressing F2? Check the setting
  2. By load up do you mean your server software does not boot? use F10 on post from the utility partition main menu under Run System Utilities.
  3. Is the server working with RAID? Press CTRL + R and check the RAID
I am not going to say check all the cables because I am sure you will have already?!?

I have dell 4600 pe serveri want to install Server2003 os i have configured raid 1 on the machine every thing is fine but! on boot process it display message no Boot Device Found Press F1 to continue F2...


The hard drive needs to be set as the first SCSI ID device boot device..
The hard drive needs to have the jumper set to SCSI ID 0, the CD and FDD can be set to SCSI ID 1 and SCSI ID 2. No SCSI devices can have the same SCSI ID number unless it is on a different SCS controller.

Bootup Problem of Dell PE6650


Your NVRAM was corrupted (probably by a dead CMOS battery) or your hardware configuration has cnaged (deah boot disk, etc). Enter setup to see if the date/time has reverted to a previous date. If so, the CMOS battery needs to be replaced and the BIOS reconfigured for the server. Otherwise, check to ensure that your disk configuration is correct. If the battery is not dead and your disk configuration is incorrect, you may have a bad hard disk.

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
