We have a old Power4 server with AIX version 5.3 installed. Upon boot up, it hangs right after the AIX welcome screen. On the diagnostic load progress LED indicator, I saw that it stopped at '0c32' then after awhile the LED would be blank. The screen on the monitor will hang at the black terminal screen with a not blinking cursor.
What should I do next? I hope the filesystem is not corrupted fingers crossed.
I tried to boot the machine using the AIX installation disc (I tried with 3 different sets of cds) but still the same thing. The machine failed to boot. But now, the LED shows 0c31 instead of 0c32.
