I have a Dell poweredge 1950 that was donated to my school, but we can't get windows server 2003 installed on it. I'm new to this whole server thing so I could really use some help. When I try to install it, it says that hard drives not found. I have also tried to install Ubuntu server and I got the same message at the end. I've been told to try and update the bios but I'm not sure how I can do that if I can't get it to start up without windows server or ubuntu. I've tried to boot it to a usb and that hasn't worked either, any help would be greatly appreciated.
BIOS, ESM/BMC, and other system firmware can be updated from outside any OS, but that it not what the obstacle is.
Ever get a 7b blue screen or a similar message when installing XP on a desktop or laptop? Same thing - you need drivers.
Which RAID controller is installed? PERC 5/6 or SAS 5/6?
