Having problems with your IBM Netfinity 5600 8664 Server ?

Netfinity 5600 I have been given an IBM Netfinity 5600 server from a friend, but we can't get it to work. I have installed 4x Seagate cheetah hotswap HDD's, each 36,6GB, and I previously got it to boot past bios, until it searches for a boot sector, which it obviosly cant find, as theres nothing on the disks. But now it wont even boot up with the monitor, and when i press the power button, it begins booting (i think) and then powers off after about 30 secs, to power itself up again after another


Answers :

It is certainly not ok for it to take so long to show bios.
\015\012
\015\012This usually means there is a hardware conflict at low level (not a broken part)
\015\012
\015\012This can occur if there is more than one disk that it has to look at that it cannot work out (this may be in your case)
\015\012you may want to start the system with only one disk in and get i runing from there before adding extra storage.
