Netfinity 5000 bios password unknown - I got a IBM Netfinity 5000 for free from my schoo and they had a BIOS/Admin password set. The school hasn't used these computers for a long time so no one knows...


****. IBM just wants your money. In most cases, the bios password can be disabled by removing the CMOS battery. Remove the CMOS, pull out the power cord, and hold the power button for 10 seconds to drain any residual charge. Boot the computer without the CMOS and it should say password disabled. Turn it off, unplug it, and slap it back together. You should be fine. Let me know how it goes.

Turn the computer off.
Remove the RAM from that J1/Slot6 slot.
Reconnect the power and start it.
Do you still get the "problem" message?

Problem woth IBM netfinity 3000


You definitely should be able to boot from cd. I used to have a netfinity 3000 and regularly booted off cd. However, there are 2 possibilities here:
a. your cd-rom is faulty
b. your cd disc is seen not bootable
I would suggest checking whether you can boot from this cd disc on another machine-if so, I would try swappin cdrom in the netfinity.

Good luck,
Raf

It is certainly not ok for it to take so long to show bios.

This usually means there is a hardware conflict at low level (not a broken part)

This can occur if there is more than one disk that it has to look at that it cannot work out (this may be in your case)
you may want to start the system with only one disk in and get i runing from there before adding extra storage.

Boot Problems... Complicated...


The IBM Netfinity 5600 is a complicated beast for sure. You really need to get a copy of the Netfinity Manual from IBM (not on the web site fyi.). It's as big as the machine unfortunately. In section 3, p.124 it lists 3-3-3 beep code as "No memory has been detected in the system" solution is "Reseat mem modules or install mem modules. If prob persists get machine serviced." On the previous page, 3 short beeps (only) on POST indicate "system mem error. combo only occurs when video bios cannot display error msg. replace the failing mem module." You might also want to check the light-path diagnostics inside the machine. A little light will be illuminated right beside the bad DIMM.

The disk that comes with the machine is called the NOS in the manual. It is also known as ServerGuide 6.0.3 which will config your Netfinity up to Win2000 Server. I used ServerGuide 7.3.06 to install Windows 2003 Server. The latest version (IBM ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD v7.4.17) is on the support IBM web site:
