Preferred Solution: HP Pavilion ML350 won't boot

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.)

Am trying to install Win 8 Server OS R2 on my HP Proliant Server ML350 but when I choose custom installation in order to format my hard drives, I don't see any drive installed error. Pls any help?

I have a server 2003 on it already but since then I get a "blue screen of death" when I try to use that OS already installed.
 

A:HP ProLiant Serve ML350

Sounds like windows 8 does not have the hard drive controller driver built in to the OS. Try going to the HP website to see if there is a hard drive controller driver for windows 8. if so great! if not, you may be SOL.

Hi, there really isnt much in the line of forums offering server support, so i will try here

Firstly, im trying to install windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise. I have found that the issues i am facing are big with windows 7 too.

I have a HP ProLiant ML350 G4 tower, 2GB RAM and upgraded to 4GB when bought. PCI RAID controller and CDROM, FLOPPY drives. I have removed the FLOPPY drive and replace the CDROM drive with a DVD-RW drive.

So, usually i install windows using USB, ive never really faced any real issues doing it this way, however on this paticular maching i am receiving an error when booting which just displays a "J" and goes no further.

I have tried formatting the USB drive in filesystems FAT16LBA FAT16CHS FAT32LBA FAT32CHS all with no luck. Searched around and came to the conclusion this was boot image related....

so, as a result i turned to the DVD drive, copied the installation media to a DVD-RW and also tried a DVD-R (at 4x write speed). However i am now facing another rather annoying problem

Im getting stuck on "Expanding windows files 0%). Sometimes it moves to 1 and 2 but it takes AGES. I have tired removing RAM, tried different DIMM configuration, removed all hardware such as NICs, FLOPPY and even PCI RAID controller to no avail. I have tried resetting the CMOS, disabled hyper-threading in the BIOS etc with no luck.

Now, i dont even get that far, i now get stuck at the initial startup screen when windows is loading the setup "copying fil... Read more

Hello,

I received an HP Proliant ML350 G4 server for experimental purposes. This is only the second time I have worked with a server that uses SCSI drives as its primary means of storage, so I really don't know too much about how SCSI drives work. When I ran the install disc for XenServer, it detected the two 34 GB SCSI drives I have in the server. Once installation completes, I reboot the computer and this is where the problem begins. The server runs through it's preliminary diagnostics and shows this:

http://img693.imageshack.us/i/img0441pr.jpg/

From what I have gathered, this is the SCSI controller. From what I've gathered from the particular model (LSI Logic 1030), I should be able to press ctrl + c (and see the prompt on the screen) to configure the array, but all I see is "Press F8" which has nothing related to configuring an array. A few seconds pass and then the screen fills with this:

http://img717.imageshack.us/i/img0443b.jpg/

So I take it this means the controller is detecting the SCSI drives attached to it? The boot process continues and then goes to boot from CD-ROM, floppy, hard drive, and then PXE boot. In the boot order in the BIOS, hard drive is listed as the third boot device. It says to see the boot controller order next to hard drive. There it shows "primary IDE controller" for hard drive C.

2) When power cord plugged in the light sequence on the tower reads, from left to right, yellow, green.

3) A Thumping sound comes from speakers, not the typical Bios Beeps.

4) Monitor is blank, yellow light indicator on.

5) Cannot open CD Drive, even manually.

1. Check if the USB device is really bootable, you can do that by checking the files on the root location or by trying to boot another computer using it.2. Start the computer and press 'esc' key to get into bios, then choose Boot Options or Boot Menu, then choose the USB device (Few BIOS have an option to enable/disable Legacy boot options, hence you have to enable it before you could change the boot sequence.Please note that the USB device needs to be on top of boot device list.

How to perform a Repair Installation of Windows? XP.

Two things are needed here, just a bit of old technology, an ink pen and a piece of paper to write down any special settings that might have to be changed back after the repair-installation is completed.

Please Note: Performing a "Repair Installation" in this manner should not delete any Personal Files, it should 'repair' the core of the installation but to be safe with your data you should follow the next two paragraphs.

You might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it in another computer as a slave drive and after it is able to be accessed by Windows on that computer you will have to manually backup all of your important data that you have to another media like CD-R's, DVD or external hard drive. Then when this is done return it to the original computer as a master drive on the primary IDE cable. and do the following:

Hi Folks,
I'm not super techy, but I have read a ton of webpages on how to (possibly) fix my desktop computer.

It no longers boots up, no beeps, no blinking LEDs, no sign of life!

Here's the details,
HP Pavilion p6218f from 2009 ( win 7 )
prod #: AU993AA-ABL

Recently, the computer was having trouble after using sleep mode. It would sleep, then turn off completely, but the power switch would not turn the computer on, I would have to unplug, re-plug to start it up again.

Three days ago, the above happened, but unplug-replug would not help. Now the computer will not turn on. No beeps, no fans, no lights.

When plugged in, there is a green light on the power supply ( kind of flickers when first plugged in ) and there is a green led lit up on the motherboard.
All peripherals are disconnected, including mouse, keyboard and monitor.

Here is what I have tried:
1. Replaced CMOS battery.
2. Looked into CMOS reset - unplugged, removed cmos battery, held down power button for 15 seconds.
3. Exchanged power cord for another one.
4. Shorted green wire and black wire on 24 pin connector, plugged in - power supply fan runs,
5. Checked 24 pin connector ( with green and black shorted ), got 3.3, 5, and 12 volts.
6. Checked yellow wire, and red wire on a 4 pin connector. got 12v and 5 v

Does all this seem like the like power supply is okay?? Should I look up which pins should have which voltages?

When I enter the BIOS to perform a HDD self check, it says the self test is disabled. When you first power the laptop on, the HDD light does come on for short time. I have tried resetting the BIOS, booting with a Vista disk (I believe this is the OS installed, however not 100% sure). When I boot with a Vista disk, recovery find no HDD. I tried with an XP disk, and got the same result. This is a SATA drive, however the connecters seem to be more vertical and not horizontal, meaning I cant plug the drive into one of my drive caddies to test the drive that way, or even to recover some data, if the drive is truly bad (or just the master boot sector).

I have read that the BIOS on this particular machine may not provide the self test and that the BIOS would need to be flashed, however I am not sure how to do this with the Windows EXE that HP provided, if I cant get it to boot

Has anyone seen anything like this before...? I have some a lot of HDD issues, but not one like this, at least not with this kind of SATA connection that isnt your "general" SATA connection.

I've been running an HP Pavilion 9680c w/ Win98 SE. Everything was working fine until a few days ago...Now when I turn on the computer the following happens....

1. The Blue 'HP' Welcome screen appears
2. The Bios Boot-up Screen Appears, letting me know that my hard-drive, dvd drive, cd-rw drives (i.e. primary master, secondary master, secondary slave) have been detected. During this time, my hard-drive and disc drives all light up and are turning.
3. The bootup process stops there. WHere it should say something like 'Starting Up Windows', there is nothing. Instead the bootup process seems to just stand still.

I am able to enter the BIOS setup screen during bootup by pressing F1. I've tried replacing the hard-drive but this did not solve the problem. I also tried using recovery disks, the Windows 98 OS setup disk, and a Norton Utilities' Recovery disk, all of which have not had any effect. I was wondering if there is anything else (motherboard jumpers, etc.) that somebody thinks might work.

My laptop will not boot.  Screen stays blank.  All lights are on. Num lock and CAP-lock blink twice.  I have removed the battery, memory, HD and all accessorys.  same error.

A:HP Pavilion dv7-3067nr will not boot

    Hi! If the caps lock is blinking twice it mean the bios is corrupted You can try to rollback the bios, press and hold the windows key then press hold tas well the letter B, while holding those keys power up the pc If nothing happens, try to power on again but immidiately tap ESC repeatedly , startup menu will appear on the screen. If you dont have the start up menu, try to power on again then immidiately tap F2 or F10 In F2 there's an option BIOS management,  choose the option ROLLBACK IN F10,  set the bios into defaults by pressing f9 , then f10 again to save the changes and reboot the system.   Thanks!

Hey I'm Trying to figure out if there's a fix for A HP Pavilion Dv4, not booting up at all.. I fear the motherboard is gone, for the only response I get is when I press the power button and hold it in, you see the chagre "Lightning bolt" flash, BUT as soon as I let go of the power button, the light goes out.. Thats the only sign of life, But again I have to hold in the power button to even get that.. Any Suggestions? THX!!

I have an HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook that will not boot. It was left unplugged for several months because I don't use it very much. I am getting ready for a vacation and usually take it along but when I plugged it in to update the OS it started downloading and installing updates then shut down and now goes into a loop. Tries to boot, gets as far as loading the desktop then black screen and then starts reboot again.
 
It has the original bios version F.34. everything there looks good. Ran HD self test from bios then memory test. Everything checks out ok. Factory OS was Vista but is now running 7 Ultimate 64bit.
 
If I try to boot in safe mode with networking I get a BSOD. Safe mode will boot. Safe mode with command prompt will boot.
 
Any suggestions?

If you are able to see the Safe Mode options you are in the Advanced Boot Options.  One of the options there is Repair Your Computer.  Run this and see if it can resolve this issue.
 
What is the make and model of this computer?

I've got an older HP Pavilion 501n that I need to install XP Pro onto... It's currently running XP home, but I need to set it up onto a domain.

The machine won't boot to the CD... I've tried both XP and Debian install CD's, but neither work (so it's not the media).

If I let the machine boot to XP Home then try to run the XP Pro setup, it tells me it cannot continue becuase the existing version of Windows (XP Home) is newer than the one I'm trying to install.

My preference is to format the drive and start from scratch, but I can't do this if I can't boot to the CD.

Please advise,

Tim

I can't figure out how to get into the bios of my HP Pavilion 500-314. When I boot the pc there is no screen that indicates what key I press to boot into bios, it just automatically goes into the HP loading screen.

A:How to boot up into the BIOS of HP Pavilion 500-314

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZcYbxOcPV0 If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.
