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

Since you haven't mentioned the type of server its unsure server has single type or dual type SMPS. This issue can due to SMPS as well Plannar (motherboard) issue. But as per post i really doubt you have bad motherboard since you see BMC and other LEDS on motherboard gets blinking..

You can troubleshoot motherboard issue this way. Press and hold server power button. Check if this makes server start. If it starts, then its confirmed you have bad motherboard.. You may also inspect whether motherboard has bulged capacitors inside..

What operating system does it use?

The problem is whether you're using hardware RAID or software RAID.

Hardware RAID will likely require another motherboard to read. Software RAID can be read in any other machine that can run the operating system.
