We bought a Dell PowerEdge 860 and installed Windows Server 2008 standard. So far so good.
Now everytime the server reboots, it tries to PXE boot and hangs on
cannot find pxe bootable, press f1 to continue or f2 to setup.
Iried all the settings in the bios (it's the latest - A05), I have the NIC active without PXE (I also tried with the nic off). I tried everyting off and on the BIOS and it still goes to PXE booting.
I have one SATA drive that boots after pressing F1. I would like to keep the system updated, but I can't because of the reboot issue. Can someone point me in the right direction?
- ST3250620NS ATA Device 232.8Gb
IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers:
- Intel(R) 82801G (ICH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 27DF
- Intel(R) 82801GB/GR/GH (ICH7 Family) Serial ATA Storage Controller - 27C0
The only time that BIOS POST message says that it can't find the drive is when in the bios I turn on the second SATA drive (that really dosen't exists).
What other details on the server would you like?
