Re: IO device error while booting b2600 from CD ROM

hi,

looks like bad media cdrom or the cdrom disk is damaged? check for scratches on the cd disk itself

is the installation cd a copied one or original? and what is the version and date code of the cd?

Re: IO device error while booting b2600 from CD ROM

Hi,

can you please let us know what was your solution as im facing the same "error n5" and cannot start the installation from the DVD-ROM;

After i rebooted the server the DVD Rom is not detected anymore and during boot up the below error is thrown:
SCSI (Pun2, Lun0) Optiarc DVD RW AD-5170A 1.32
ERROR: Cannot initialize SCSI Device

 

thanks

Check the SCSI ID.
For the new hard disk you have to use the same ID like the old one.
