Hi

I am afraid you are not going to like my answer to the question relating to Windows XP. This is because Windows XP is not supported (officially) as an Operating System on PowerEdge 1600sc.

Regarding the System BIOS, the only change is to ensure that the system is set to boot from the Optical Drive (CD/DVD) first. You can change/verify this from boot sequence sub menu. If you think you have made unknown changes to the BIOS settings, you may use keyboard shortcut ALT+D to reset individual highlighted field to factory defaults or ALT+E to reset the entire System BIOS to factory defaults. ***Please don't reset BIOS settings unless you know what you are doing***

Now back to the question regarding Windows XP. To proceed, you will need drivers for the Mass Storage Controller. PowerEdge 1600sc can be configured with PERC 3/SC (SCSI RAID) or CERC ATA 100/4 (IDE RAID) or basic SCSI using the onboard LSI U320 SCSI controller. As Windows XP is not officially supported there are no certified drivers.

At your own risk (system stability issues) you may try using Windows Server 2000 or 2003 drivers.

If further help is need let me know.

Mike

How to install windows7 64 bit dell poweredge 1600sc ?


Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))julyallan01_28.jpg

How long do Dell Poweredge 1600Sc Servers last? We've had ours for 7 yrs. For our office and have been told it's required to get a new one.


If it's still working, there's no "requirement" to replace it, but Dell will probably not support it after a certain age.

Servers in general will fail on either power supplies or hard disks. Both of those are well past the average lifespan (what's called the "mean time between failure", or mtbf for the parts)

If you don't have an IT person or department, the simplest approach is to ask yourself this question:
"What is the cost to my business if this computer dies tomorrow?"

Then figure out how much it would be to replace the computer (purchase + install and configure)
If the replacement cost is less than the business-impact cost, then you should replace this 7-year-old box.

Hello I have a Problem for Dell PowerEdge 400sc and cant get windows xp installed, I am able to reformat the HD but cant get xp to load and at one point during the installation it says it cant install...


try another windows xp disk or burn another copy of the disk you have. it's also possible that there's a problem with the optical drive that you're using.

Can a Dell 1600SC host Microsoft Small Business Server 2008?


Hello,

You can look on MS website for minimum requirements or you can use the 1st disk to test your server to see if is compatable. With your server on, Put the 1st disk in your optical drive and choose the option to test your server for compatiablity. It will generate a report for you.

Good Luck

Windows won't see all of my 4GB of RAM but BIOS does! Why?


Windows xp will usually only see 3.5 gbs of ram even in your motherboard can support more. WIndowns vista does recognize more RAM or i also believe windows xp 64bit recognizes more ram. Nothing wrong with ram or your computer its just your operating system.

1600sc second CPU


Hi

Yes, some systems (newer PowerEdge Servers, generally 6/7th Generation and above) have onboard VRMs.

1600sc is a 6th gen PowerEdge (with Simple Computing). I can checked and be absolute certain from within Dell. I'm on VAC until Saturday.

In the meantime, check the PRC model and revision and ensure that they match. Given that a single PRC POST/Boots, try upgrading (if not already) the system BIOS to latest revision.

If the PRC model/revision does match and you have the latest BIOS version, also if the VRMs are not needed, then from the Troubleshooting you have already done, we may conclude that the PRC 2 slot is faulty.

I will confirm the VRM query on Saturday.
