I do not know why you need the automatic power on for your server. Server should be on all the time 24/7 .
If it is a PC , then you should know that even though shutdown , they are still on (you can see a light) .
This means you can use magic bullet to wake it up (wake up on lan).
Read up on magic bullet.

Good luck,

Hard disk not found message coming while installing windows server 2003 on HP Proliant ML150 G5 server system.pls help me

Save any critical or important files. Even if this is an secondary hard drive installation.
Turn off the power and unplug the PC from the outlet. Also, unplug all external connections to the Windows PC. Be sure to touch something metal to ground the user. Static electrical shocks can damage a PC.
Open the PC housing and determine the placement of the hard drive. Generally computers come with a latch that, when pressed, opens the housing. Make certain the space necessary for the hard drive is available. Usually the drive bays are in the front of the PC near the CD or DVD drives.
Make sure the IDE jumpers are set correctly. If the hard drive is the primary drive then set the jumpers to "Master" mode. If the hard drive is the secondary drive then set the jumpers to "Slave" mode. Please consult the hard drive's manual for the proper jumper setting for each mode. Another possibility--if there are two hard drive, set both drives to "Cable select" mode and the Windows PC will choose which one to make "Master" and "Slave."
Mount the hard drive in the available internal slot. The drive is sometimes mounted with four screws to the drive bay. Some internal drives have a rail that slides into the open bay. Look at the other devices to determine which mounting option is available in the specific computer.

Connect the hard drive cables to the Windows PC. Connect the power supply connector to the available cable. Next, connect the data cable to the available connector. The internal data cable usually has a red stripe to make identification easier.

Close the housing and reconnect the external power supply. Plug the external cables back into the computer and reconnect to the power supply.
Configure the BIOS. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is accessible during computer start-up. To access the BIOS consult the computer manual to find out with which key press during start-up. Most often, the key is F8. Once in the BIOS change the hard drive setting to "Auto detect." When finished, exit the BIOS and allow the start-up to continue.
Format and partition the Windows PC hard drive. Select "Start" from the operating system menu. Choose "Control panel" from the start menu. Next click on "Administrative tools". From the administrative tools menu choose the "Computer management" icon and finally "Disk management." Choose the new hard drive and right click. Select "New partition" from the right click menu. Follow the on-screen option to partition and format the drive the drive.
Restart the computer and check the hard drive to ensure it is operating properly.

I just tried to update the BIOS on my HP DL165 G5 with SP48069.exe, and everything looked good until the reboot. It will not boot now or do anything except spin up the fans. Help?!?!

when you updated the bios version, you missed updating the ipmi, and the ilo chipset, the mismatch in versions of these chipsets may cause the system to fail. There is not much to do here since there is no possible way to boot from a cd or usb to update these chipsets, however if it is possible to clear the settings from the bios it would be by clearing the cmos. if it works (chances are 50%) it will allow you to see post again and boot from a usb or cd if so have the smart start cd handy to go back to the bios you previously had.

You may need to clear the Setup configuration values (CMOS) if the configuration has been
corrupted, or if incorrect settings made in the Setup Utility have caused error messages to be
To clear CMOS

Locate the system configuration button (SW4) on the system board.

Press the button. AC power must not be connected.
or simple remove the cmos battery for a couple of seconds then put it back and

Yellow light on back, we get nothing on screen at power up.

Well you have said that back panel indicator stays Yellow (Amber it should be). I assume you are mentioning the PSU indicator (Power Supply Unit). If the PSU indicator turned on it means that PSU has shut down due to an Internal Protection event and needs Service Attention. If you have configured ALOM it will be much easier to detect the error. They will be logged in syslog. It will generate an Automatic mail as well.
Its better to run Sun Management Center and Hardware Diagnostic Suite to detect, avoid and manage such situation.
However if the Front Bezel Indicator is on (Service Indicator - Yellow) means that a Problem is Detected and needs the Attention of a Service Personnel.
Its not possible to detect an error remotely but it should be a misconfiguration (during usage) or a hardware failure.
Have you been using it or is it the firs time? If so you haven't powered the system on in the proper manner.
Its better if you can read these two important publications. Link 1 Link 2 You will be able to see and identify what when wrong or what you have done wrong. You can use built in tools as well to detect errors during post.
Administration Guide is located here.

My xserver had a bad HD. I replaced it, but it will not do an automatic rebuild of the new drive. I checked for the manuel rebuild option but can find it.

Are you sure RAID is configured for your drives, determine if disk tolerance is in place and find out the level of disk tolerance in place. If No disk tolerance is configured, you may not be able to rebuild the failed drive.

This means that the non-volatile memory on the motherboard (also called "BIOS memory", or simply "BIOS" has got corrupted. This may be because the tiny battery on the motherboard is dead and needs to be replaced (I can't remember offhand if the ML370 has a BIOS backup battery, so that may not be it). In any case, you need to go into the BIOS setup program as the server starts up, correct any errors you find there and then Save Changes. You may find the only option initially is to Reset to Defaults. If so, accept that, save it, then go back into the BIOS setup and customise as necessary.
