Have you initialized the disk from within the BIOS ? if not when you boot the server it says there are no hard disks.

You probably don't have a high enough wattage power supply to support the graphics card. Usually you need at least 300-350W

I am setting up a Xseries 345 server using ServerGuide 7.14 everything runs fine untill it start to copy files it than gives me a blank screen and nothing happens after that


Hi,
This is probably a Server Guide issue. You may check with one step lower verion and one step higher version of server guide. It may solve issue.
If that doesn't work, you may have to manually install OS without server guide. You can use a either use a floppy drive or pen drive to load controller driver. Once installed, rest of the drivers can be downloaded from IBM site or install from server guide cd

Thanks

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).

I cannot install windows xp in ibm x3400,the system is currently raid5,it shows message hard disk not detected. thanks


I believe your HDD must be a SCSI disk whose drivers might have come along with the HDD.While installing XP it gives an option to install third party drivers for your HDD, Hopefully after that it would start detecting

IBM xSeries 360 Server support Win 2003?


The good news is IBM says it will work, the BIOS might require an upgrade. I would consult ibm.com and get the latest updates for your hardware after that insert CD and reboot!
Have Fun.

It is not detecting the HDD because the windows install does not have the necessary drivers. On the windwos install you must press F6 or F2 I don't remember which one but it prompts you for them to load external drivers fro SCSI or other type of drives, you must download the right drivers for the type of HDD the server has probably fromt eh IBM support website, put them in a floppy and load them from the floppy into the windows install so it recognizes the drives..

SCSI hard disk is not detecting in IBM xSeries 346 Server


Hi
While running the windows 2003 setup (winnt.exe), it will ask for SASI driver, you have to add the scsi driver... then windows 2003 os will detect the HDD.. then it will install..
