The hard drive may only needs the data cables re-connecting or the hard drive may be faulty.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer, Windows installed and the computer's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer again.

"Harddisk not found" error during


If the computer is telling you that the hard disk is not found, then either it is not hooked up correctly, is set to "disabled" in the BIOS setup, or the hard drive is bad.
Check those things in that order.

Ensure drives are seated correctly and set up the RAID config.

Then on the Blue screen of Windows installation it will say "press f3 for 3rd party drivers", hit F3 (I think its F3), then insert a floppy disk with the drivers for you RAID controller, setup will then say it has found the followign drivers "your device xxx" then it should* pick up the hard drives later on in setup.

:) - RAID controller drivers can be got from the manufacturer websites.... normally.

I believe your HDD must be a SCSI disk whose drivers might have come along with the HDD.While installing XP it gives an option to install third party drivers for your HDD, Hopefully after that it would start detecting

How to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400


The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

Good Luck
