According to u I understand that the hard disk of your Power edge is faulty & need to recover the data.

You don't have say the exact problem of your hard drive. If your hard drive detect in your system Bios but you can't access Data or OS from safe mode also then try to format only the OS drive or repair the drive with your server OS CD. If you get perform it well then you can recover your data by transferring data to another external drive.

If The Hard drive doesn't detect then first try to change the cables (Data & Power)of the Hard drive. If detect it then try to access it or perform the previous job.

For detection of the Hard drive you can try to attach this drive to another system in slave or as secondary drive. If detect then you can recover data.

If your hard drive get crashed then use data recovery CD to recover data. Insert disk, install software, and recover the data by follow the option of the software.

This software is available in market.

Have another process to recover data from a crashed Hard drive. It is freezing but try it carefully. Place the hard drive into a baggy, seal it tightly and put it in the freezer overnight.The next day remove it from the baggy and put it in the external drive case.

Transfer the data from the drive before it warms too much and crashes again.

Dell poweredge 2950 11910 intrusion error

Hello here is the DELL support homepage:
The chassis intrusion was made to prevent unautorized access when the chassis is opened.
A small contact in the cabinet trigger the bios, so the operating system is not starting.
Next the system must be activated again by the system admin.
This can easy be deactivated, by entering the bios, and disable the function.
And the wire can be removed from the mainboard, so it don`t happens again.
Hope this will help you

You may have a damaged hard drive and it needs to be replaced. If the system is still under warranty, Dell will replace the drive free, you just need to go online, supply your systems tag number and follow the instructions from there. If you have just the one drive, you will need to restore the information froma a backup. If you have a RAID set up, once the hard drive is reinstalled, the RAID will sync the drive to the others.

Good Luck

How to use the smart start cd to install dell poweredge 2950

Smart Start is an HP utility. Dell has a similar one called Systems Build and Update Utility (SBUU) or Systems Management Tools and Documentation (SMTD - much larger download and includes SBUU).

You should use the DVD version if possible, and if you are installing 2003, it should have SP2. If it doesn't, then you can use to integrate the Service Pack into your installation media.
