HP DL360 G5 Server not booting from DVD/CD ROM

Hi,

my server is not booting the HP SmartStart CD from the CD-ROM disk. I have setup the Standard Boot Order in the RBSU (v.2.10) to IPL:1 CD-ROM.

What is wrong? Is my CD not okay?

Thanks for a quick reply

hi wolfgang matheus

smartstart CD version?

the CD came with the server? or you downloaded and burn it?

as a test did you try booting from another CD like W2003 or any other bootable CD?

do you have another dl380 g5 to swap DVD units?

regards
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: HP DL360 G5 Server not booting from DVD/CD ROM

Hi,

yes I took the original HP boot cd (no copy) and I tested the CD for the bootable function on my laptop and it works. So the CD should be fine. I have pulled out and insert the CD drive several times w/o success. I don´t have a second unit CD drive here for testings.
The best way is to call HP support for exchange the drive.
