I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an older proliant server with dual processors and plenty of memory that I'm trying to install XP on. I put a new HDD controller in, and thu MS Dos, it works great. I've been able to partition the HDD the way I want, format it, run CHDsK, etc, and It appears to be just fine.
SOO... I put the XP disk in, it boots off it, loads drivers, then it gives a BSOD about the HDD. It dosent work w/ the SCSI HDD's either, because I can't find the drivers for the controller, plus, I would want the OS to install in my larger IDE drive. The Technical Info it gives me on the BSOD is *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0XFD5BA63C, 0Xc0000034, 0X000000000, 0X000000000)

I am trying to install Windows Server 2016 Datacenter (new installation) on a RAID 0 (Striped Drive). The RAID system (Hardware RAID; Gigabyte z390 D) is configured on two SSDs (1 TB each).

Windows installer detects the RAID-Drive (of about 2 TB) and can create partitions on the drive and format them normally. The installation, however, is not possible on this drive (windows can not be installed on this drive).
I tried to download the preinstall-RAID-drivers and add them to the installer using USB-stick but it does not solve the problem. 
I am not sure whether I missed something at this point or even if this is possible to be acheived anyway. 
I appreciate your help.
Best regards

My Server specs: 4 CPUs (Physical) with each CPU has 2 cores. (total 8 cores)

I managed to install Windows 7 Ultimate on it but it detects only 2 Physical CPUs (4 cores).

Is there anyway (I really doubt it but just want to get it confirmed) that We can make Windows 7 support 4 Physical CPUs?

Unfortunately, Windows 8 (Pro) too seems to be supporting only 2 Physical cores!

I wish to install Windows 2003 server on this system. So far I have

Used the SmartStartCD 5.5 and installed the BIOS.
I have set up the raid0 array and i have created a logical drive.
I have chaged the boot order in the newly installed BIOS to go to CD first.

When i place my Win 2K3 server cd in the drive i get a non system disk error
I can place the same disc in my XP home machine and i get no trouble booting. The smartstartcd boots fine.

Why is the windows CD not booting?

Thanks for taking time reading my post

Does anyone know anything about these?

I am trying to build a server to and just ordered what i need to get a Raid 5 with 3-500GB disks going in and older computer I have cobbled together.

I have just discovered a Compact Proliant 3000 server locally for only $50. So far I have only talked to the owners wife who has limited info.

From what I gather it is a P2 or P3 processor. It has hot swappable dual power supplies. SCSI raid of some type. I am not sure if I am interested in getting into this level of server, being the cost of expanding into the SCSI hard drive world.

However being that it comes already filled with a bunch of SCSI drives and is set to go minus an OS, would this be a good thing to have to use maybe as a web server? Would this be a worthwhile project or will I just have another dinosaur computer on my hands? How would you set this up and what would you use if for?

A:Proliant 3000 server

You already ordered three 500GB hard drives for this computer? I can't imagine that a server that old would even support drives of that size. It's likely to be slow, loud, and power-hungry. There's a reason someone's selling it for only $50. The city dump probably charges more.

Recently we purchase a HP proliant ML150 G3 server that runs Ms Server 2003. While working on it, the windows on the screen started appearing in a red faded colour. Whenever i try restarting the machine, it beeps continuously for about 5 seconds but does not start up. What could be the problem?

HP Proliant ML150 G3

Intel(R) XEON(R) CPU

A:HP Proliant server won't start

Video error i believe. If its screen is changing colour, it could be a pin fault in the cable. Check or change the vga cable, i assume its linked to a console of some sort.
If you recently bought it from HP or a reseller, then it should definitely be warranteed. I wouldn't fudge around with it too much though if it is. Call HP and get it sorted.

So I finally got the the right drivers, managed to stick them on a floppy disk, get windows xp install to register them and install to the RAID 0 setup (Hardware controlled)

It works fine until the pc is restarted. After I restart if there is nothing in the cd drive or floppy drive I get 'Operating system missing' boot error. The only way I can get it to boot is to have the windows xp install disk in the drive, and the floppy disk in the drive with the raid drivers on.

If i go in to the windows setup disk and try to load the drivers again to properly repair the install it gives me 'Floppy disk wrong format' error (or something like that) and I can't do anything.
I could live with this if it wasn't for the fact even though i can boot it up and get access after a restart, performance is rubbish. The system hangs and freezes randomly ectt..

I have found a win 2000 driver, extracted the files from that.
I have a Proliant ML 310 G1 Server and there is only support for windows 2000 and I need XP on it.

How can I get the RAID drivers to properly install?

Many thanks

I needed to install .NET 3.5 on Server 2016 but have hit all of the roadblocks and need help. Here is what I have tried so far...

I tried to add the feature via the server manager but it ended with code 0x80070002. I did have to provide a path to the sources\sxs folder for the cab file which I expected but that didn't help.I tried using the DISM powershell command to add the feature, both using the source location and also using /All so that it downloads the files from Windows Update. The end result was the same as #1 attempt - 0x80070002.I made sure all updates for the OS have been applied and that updates for 'other Microsoft products' was checked. this made no change in the error.I checked the installed packages via powershell and it shows 3.5 as removed, which again is expected for Server 2016 as they intentionally left it out but provided the cab file in the install media.I have executed a clean sfc /scannow with no errorsI have run a clean dism package commandI have tried installing under a fresh admin user profileI have researched for around 3 hours on the forums so I look forward to the various input
I have uploaded both the DISM and CBS logs. I started fresh with both logs so they contain only details related to a single attempt t install via the server manager.

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

Controller 1 primary

The server seems to see them just fine in BIOS and in setup screens, and says they are both online. However when I go into W2K setup, it says that it cannot detect any hard drives installed on the computer, and tells me to exit setup. Anybody know what is going on?

Thanks in advance for the help.

search here you will find you are missing the scsi drivers for the scsi chipset controller
go to HP and download the drivers make a floopy per there intructions
on install of W2K F6 will load drivers from floppy drive use a new or very clean floppy
not sure about your box ,but newer HP's servers can use usb flash

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

Hi there

For those running Windows (retail ) or a Windows server version on one of these excellent little Cube boxes you can ignore the base system device driver when you look at the system devices list -- doesn't effect the working at all.

I know some people use these as NAS boxes - or even as a great desktop (although for use as a desktop you really need to add a decent video card - note I/2 height with small form factor bracket needed.).

Anyway here's what to do if you want to fix the problem (I don't like missing drivers even if I'm not using them !!).

What it is : It's the built in controller for HP's ILO stuff - remote console control on setup / boot -- not needed for Home / domestic stuff or if you set up with a console attached.

Anyway download these two drivers from the HP site - can't directly access the link currently but it's OK and the missing drivers are now installed (screenshot 3).

Ist screenshot shows missing driver

2nd screenshot - what to download from HP -- for W10 choose W2012 server R2 as your OS when you get to the site -- the drivers work for W10 X64.

3rd screenshot shows all fixed
