Re-install the old bios. evidently the new flash bios is not compatible with your machine.

Netfinity 550

Hi

The error message you are receiving "Inquiry command failed Using IBM-PC ServerRaid Host adapter" makes me think you are attaching the tape drive to the ServerRaid Controller, which is only for Hard Disks. There should be a normal SCSI interface for attaching tape drives, etc. It's possible that the ServerRaid card is a PCI (or older) plug in card, and the normal SCSI interface will be on the main motherboard. If you look on the IBM website for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it should hopefully make things clearer.

The reason you may not be seeing the hard drives in CMOS, is because you will need to use the IBM ServerRaid Utility to view and configure the disks.

Missing support/installation cd

I had the same problem.
There is a cd that came with the server called "IBM RAID Support" that is a must have to reconfigure the hard drives.
It took me a week to find the ISO image.
I will upload the cd via FTP and send you the link.

Network & Speed Problem

I suspect that the network interface card failed, & that's why you get the error message. Try disabling it from the BIOS & see if the error message disappears. If it did, then you have a failing network interface card & need to install anew one.

Running Non-ECC Ram in a IBM Netfinity 3500 M20

Dear NickB,

In my experience working with many servers, Non-ECC memory will not work on a machine that requires ECC memory. It is possible in some servers to disable the ECC mode in the system BIOS to allow non-ECC memory to work, but you will often end up with performence problems later on.
Hope this information helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Wont Post get 9 beeps!

This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology. A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen

IBM Netfinity 5600 8664 81Y Server

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:

Video controller disabling

That model server comes with onboard video. If you wish to use a PCI video card then all you have to do is place it in the server and the BIOS will automatically disable the onboard. If it currently has a PCI video card in it, just remove the PCI card and you should get the onboard video again. Hope this helps.
