Question about Dell POWEREDGE 2400 Server

Open Question

I needed to replace the DVD drive in a PowerEdge 2400 server, which I have done, but when the system now starts, it does not proceed past the second Ctrl-A for SCSI devices and then a blank line. Tried resetting the NVRAM, still the same. Even tried putting the old drive back in, still no luck. Please help!

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

SOURCE: Can not access bois

It hangs there probably becuase one or more of the drives are dead or are almost there. Check and see the lights on the drives are falshing funny or too long or are yellow. If you find one of them that are that way, pull it out and then reboot.

See if that helps.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: DELL Poweredge 2600 Bios FREEZES After Cpu check and before SCSI Drives check HELP!!!!

The BIOS check can freeze for many reasons.

Can you tell me if this is an existing system that was working fine and then had this problem, or is this a new (or new to you) system?

Can you give more information on what is actually showing on the screen?

I'm trying to start Microsoft Windows Server2003 from USB Hard Drive on Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server.


Dell provides lifetime tech support for all PE servers. Call them at 800-945-3355 and give them the service tag or express service code from the server. If it can be done, they will tell you how.
Good luck!

Can i change this server into a home pc and what do i need to do first


I think you want to change the server operating system to windows XP or Vista. Is that it? If so yes you can. But there are things you need to do before proceeding. Here they are:
  1. Back up your data
  2. Make sure that you have the drivers of your third party device drivers (i.e. NIC, VGA, Sound Card etc...). check if your drivers are compatible with your new operating system selection. Otherwise download them from the manufacturer's site.
  3. Prepare a bootable installation cd of the Operating System (OS) of your choice. make sure you have the serial numbers ready as well.
when done doing this follow these steps
  1. Boot your PC. At the manufacturers logo page press F12 (commonly it is F12 but some computer models use F11, check it out on the logo page) to select the boot device.
  2. Insert the OS installation cd/ dvd into your drive.
  3. Select the CD/ DVD drive to boot from
  4. if you are installing a Windows OS, when the "Press any key..." message is displayed just press a key on your keyboard.
  5. After this check out this support page for installation detail of the OS of your choice

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.

Beeping Upon Bootup


dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem. A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful. Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.
