Hi there, please any help! I got an IBM Netfinity 4000r with Fedora Core 6 installed and it was working right until I decided to install Windows 2003. Because my CD-ROM is not working properly I decided to put a different one to use during installation. After a while I got a blue screen with an error message, and I rebooted the server. Now when I turn the server on, the computer starts up normally but the monitor looses the signal coming from the server right after the server initiates memory. So basically the monitor receives signal from the server for like 20 seconds till the server is done initializing the extended memory.
Hi , if your dont have any data, try to get the IBM Netfinity CD for 4000r which supporting the OS 2003. Usually IBM provide a cd on each NEtfinity server. Check on the IBM website for more details about your Server Compatibility on 2003 server.
then proceed to re-intalled the OS.

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.
set it up on a seperate IDE Channel, or change from master to slave. Or Vice-Versa.
Secondly you could try re-installing windows 2000, this should repair any corrupt or missing drivers.
Finally see the manufacturers website, to see if any firmware upgrades are available.
Hope This helps.

ya there is a problem with driver while installing fedora core 4 i think ... u must have also tried in that only ... so i suggest you to install other version of linux... there are many other versions available like ubuntu,mandrake,redhat. or you just give try with installing the latest version of fedora core ...( try fedora core 6 or 7).. as linux is a open source for all you can download it from net for free.............
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:
