Pinned topic IBM x3650 7979 [i9990301 error]
I have a terrible issue, very similar to the one posted, that is annowing me.
I have a x3650 7979 server with ServeRaid 8k controller and 6 SAS HD
I simply installed one of the following OS, like:
windows server 2008
I intalled them both using IBM Install CD and without.
I succesfully complete installation. At reboot I always get this error:
I9990301 No bootable device, hard disk, or disket.
If I hit F12 at reboot and select Hard Disk 0 I am able to boot.
What is wrong? It is driving me crazy.
In Bios, under Configuration/Setup Utility, I have set:
Startup Sequence Options:
Planar Ethernet PXE/DHCP Disabled As I do not need to boot off the network
PCI Device Boot Priority Planar SAS
I attach some documentation it might be of help.
I performed firmware updates with the "IBM ToolsCenter Installation CD". I have some devices that are not detected.
Also, my SAS HD have not been detected.
I was unable to "Use ServeRAID Manager for creating ServeRAID Support Archive" because I did not find the "Enterprise View from my ServeRaid Manager.
Please please help.
