My server is keeping booting and can't log in to windows


Hello,

You issue could be both hardware and software related. The Blue Screen of Death is one that I don't like to see but can be easy to solve at times. First, I would recommend you recheck and hardware that was newly installed; memory cards, cables, etc. Verify they are connected or inserted correctly. Next, if this is a new install of Windows 2008, verify that your server meets the hardware captiablity for S2008. (Remember, this is a 64-bit os and you will need drivers if your server is 32-bit based.) You can find this out by inserting the Windows Server 2008 boot disc and run the Check System for Compatiablity function from the menu.
If you are certain that you have no hardware issues and the install was performed correctly, you may need to reinstall Server '08 and monitor the install for any exceptions that may occur.

Good Luck,

Operating system not found


Hello,

I recommend going into your BIOS and making sure your system is detecting the hard drive(s). If not, recheck your cable connection at the drive and the board. If it is detecting the drive, make sure it is set to be one of the boot drives(I would make it 2nd to the CD-ROM) and reboot your server. If you get the same error, you will need to reinstall the os.
Good Luck

When doing new installation i can not find hand disk drives


Check your BIOS if it's detect your Hard Drive.If detected then check your system BIOS whether SATA setting is enable or not. Disable it if you have enable it in IDE configuration.If you find there is no way to configure SATA in your BIOS setting then you need to download SATA driver for that Hard drive and used a software called nlite.

Here is the link for nlite software

http://home.midmaine.com/~nlite/nlite/nLite-1.4.9.1.installer.exe

Here is the guide link for using nlite software to make a bootable OS cd with SATA driver pre-installed.

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

How to install server 2003 on compaq reliant server and i need help setting up administrative privledges


To install Windows Server 2003, you just insert the Windows Server CD just like any other Microsoft Operating System. You might need to create a driver floppy for windows to find the hard drives first. To do this, check your product manual/disks. You should have it. If not, hp.com has it available for download.
Once you get it setup, we can help with Privledges.

Server doesnt boot


First create a floppy disk with your RAID driver for W2K3 Server. Next boot the server with the W2K3 Server CD, and hit F6 when prompted, and S to add the specific driver for your RAID and using the floppy to get the driver installed.

Next boot to the recovery console of W2K3 Server. If it finds your hard disk, it will even ask for your Administrator's Password to continue. If this works, then you are probably home free.

Get to the command line of the W2K3 Server Repair console and perform some directory searches to see if the data is there and intact. You can also perform a CHKDSK from that console.

Once you have made sure your data is there and intact, type these two commands: FIXMBR and FIXBOOT

This should solve the problem and when you EXIT out of the console, it should reboot. Remove the CD and it "should" re-boot from the hard disk.

If you still have problems, let me know with how far you got with the steps above. I have another solution but need to know your RAID controller's model (ServeRAID 5i, 6i, etc).

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
