Hi ,
Try to cutdown power usage. unplug the floppy power and cdrom power and try again.
If it works , then it is power issue.
Use external devices that have their own power (not drawn from usb).
Also try to change the usb cable and retry.
Also try other usb ports (surely you have more than one).
If other ports work (use a usb hub).

Good luck with your issue,

When i power on HP prolliant ml 110g6 server it gives following errors

Shut the computer OFF and open the case. Check to be sure that the power cables AND the data cables that come from the power supply and motherboard (or IDE controller expansion card) and go to the HD / Optical / Floppy drives are all fully seated into their respective connection points. Some data cables (SATA types in particular) for HD and optical drives are easily dislodged from the jacks on the drive and controller. Make sure you don't disrupt any of them while checking. This may be a good time to vac / blow any accumulated dust out of the case. Make sure the power supply ventilation slots and fan are not clogged with dust and dirt. The same holds true for any other fan and heat sink on CPU, video processor, MoBo chipsets, etc. Dust will cause interfere with cooling and cause these components to run hot. Heat will cause erratic operation.

If your drives are controlled by an expansion card (ie: not from the motherboard itself), you may wish to remove and re-seat the card in the motherboard slot. This helps to re-establish good continuity between the slot and the card contacts.

When satisfied that the cables and expansion cards are connected properly, replace the cover and power up. Enter the BIOS setup page and make sure that all of the drives are listed. Make sure that the your boot drive appears in the list of drives your computer will seek at boot time. As long as the drives in the boot order do not have bootable media or sectors, the computer should eventually check your boot drive. Of course, if you set the boot drive as the first bootable device,the boot time will be reduced.

If you can't boot your normal boot drive, you should obtain a bootable image and place it on media that matches a bootable drive on your computer (USB, Floppy, CD or DVD). You can download boot images for Windows / DOS / etc. here free of charge.

Once you have booted from one of these images, you can proceed to test and optimally copy data from a drive the will no longer boot. If you are unable to access the original boot drive, there may be a problem with the cable, power, controller or even the disk itself. Your ability to recover the data will depend on how much time & money you want to spend on doing so.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Ths screen displays ERROR,Expansion ROM not initialized-PCI network controller on Motherboard. Bus:04,Device:04,Function:00 how do i fix this? I am trying to install win 2003 server ,system not...

The ProLiant ML110 server with System BIOS Version 16 supports a total of eight IPL devices. Four IPL devices, such as the IDE controller and the floppy controller, are integrated, leaving support for four additional PCI IPL devices (i.e., PCI card plugged into PCI expansion slots); however, the ProLiant ML110 has five PCI expansion slots. Therefore, it is possible to configure the ProLiant ML110 with five PCI IPL devices (such as SCSI controllers or NICs) and exceed the limitation of System BIOS Version 16
The resolution to the problem is to update the System BIOS Version 17 which supports a total of nine IPL devices and five PCI IPL devices. Update the ProLiant ML110 server to System BIOS Version 17
i could not include the url for the download because you did not especify the generation of your server
but follow this link your server with the corresponding generation
2. select the operating system
3. from the download list select the bios update to a bootable usb or diskete
4.install the os

Configure & install two scsi disks scsi disks in ML 150 G2

The SCSI driver is required to installed during the initial boot up for installation when additional drivers are asked .the new models dont come with a Floppy drive so an external floppy drive can be used .The detection of HDD s must be at the startup by the Bios os SCSI card.

I am using HP DL380 G4 SERVER,cd rom drive is not working , thats why i connected external usb cd rom drive ,and i tried to bood 2003 server os , but failed, please help me................... if any...

Make sure the BIOS is fully updated from the HP website. Most DL3-series servers supported booting from an external USB cd, try F10 or F12 at boot in order to bring up a boot menu.

Unable to boot to anything external.

Save yourself some trouble. Pull a CD/DVD drive out of another computer or just buy one. They are very cheap. Connect the CD/DVD drive to the server and install the OS as usual.

If you are lucky WS2008 will already have a compatible SCSI/RAID driver. Otherwise, you will need to press F6 and install the driver from the floppy.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Can install Win2003 server

I am sure you can find one at It is better than the floppy because it will also load all of the other drivers you need.

However, if you want to save some time you could pull a floppy drive and cable from a workstation.
You can open the server case and connect the drive for the purpose of loading your RAID drivers and pull it once they are installed.
I am pretty sure that most server MBs and power supplies still have a floppy connectors on them.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Does Dell PowerEdge 4600 Server support DVD ROM

I am working on one of these now and yes, it should boot from DVDROM. Be aware that it is a notebook style drive and there are no onboard IDE or SATA controllers, so once the drive dies you're in for a wallet hit. Same goes for the floppy drive which is integrated with the DVDROM. Even worse, the presence of the broken floppy usually means a USB floppy drive won't help when loading windows drivers at install time.

Hi, I found this thread interesting. Will try it out today.

It says that the right driver is not in the support CD!! As per the link, the problem was solved for him once he used a USB Floppy drive (Windows compatible).
