You can boot with an "xp" bot disk, dos (any version) or any other os but that is not keepiing you ooout of the bios...just hit "f10" when prompted and you will be in the config....f8 gets you into the ilo setup you will ned to download the array drivers ( and expand the file to a floppy) to add it to windows 2000 or w2k server during the install as well

If i remember correctly, The Compaq ProLiant doesn't have a boot time BIOS configuration system. You can't hit F2 or F10 or DEL on boot to get to the BIOS. Instead, you have to use DOS/Windows programs for BIOS configuration. You will need the smartstart (anywhere from 350MB to 600MB download) and firmware maintenance CDs (somewhere around 350MB) for your model of Proliant. You can download it from HP. Just start at support.hp.com, select your location, then search on your model.

Turn the computer off.
Unplug its power-cord.
Connect its power-cord.
Turn the computer on, and enter "BIOS SETUP".
Check the "Boot Options", to ensure that your RAID-array is listed as one (preferably the first) of the bootable devices.

HP DL160 g6 need to activate boot from DVD


Hi Fyamine,
While booting go into the BIOS, use either the dedicated keys or +/- to enable/disable the CD ROM boot ( in the Advanced section of device management), then go into the advanced boot tab and change the boot order (it should be CD->HDD->Pxe->Disabled by Default). After that, restart the server and wait for it to boot from the disk.

How do i boot a compaq proliant dl380 with a usb drive set up for booting?


Hello,

Make sure you have turned on the USB Boot in the BIOS of the os. Once this is done, select the order you would like for the server to locate boot files. (Hard Drive, USB, CD/DVD, etc.) Once complete, insert the USB and reboot the server.

Good Luck

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.

make sure there is no disk in cd rom drive if there remove it and also check the amber led in front panel which is indicating the problem still if you are not able then open it and check the ram. And the power connector in motherboard and also the cmos battery or reset the bios.

DELL DL-380 G5 "could not allocate page table memory" GSS 2.5


First of all, Dl380 is an hP product.
Secondly your ghost version seems a bit old as ghost 14 is the latest version. Having said that the problem could be at two ends.
1. At the ghost side where your version doesnot contain NIC drivers for PXE boot and HDD drivers for imaging. To fix this you can try manually adding the drivers to the network boot or floppy boot diskette.
You can get the drivers from HP website or the PSP CD that came with the server.

Alternatively you can upgrade to RDP instead of GHOST, RDP is Symantec's offering sold by HP for imaging it's servers.

2. There's some problem with your NIC settings or card if you are trying to PXE boot.
If you are using a floppy drive/ usb HDD, check from BIOS if it is detected.
