Having problems with your IBM Netfinity 6000R 8682 Server ?

I tried the hot swap harddrive and now its having harddrive boot problems. What do i need to know about swapping out the drives?

Answers :

\015\012hard drive pins (located at the back of the hard drive)
\015\012be sure to pin your hard drives accordingly ,primary drive to master (ma)and secondary drive to slave (sl) if you are running 2 hard drives
\015\012or pin the hard drive to cable sellect (cs) if you are running single hard drive
\015\012if 2 hard drives running the master hard drive has to go at the end of the ribon cable and the slave hard drive goes into the slot in the middle of the ribon cable.
\015\012if you hot swap aka pulled drive wile the computer was on you might be able to do a c mos reset perhaps you are using a usb drive if you are using a usb drive you might have to go through system admin to bring your system back up by using a confirmed drive you have booted up from before.
\015\012be sure in c mos that the usb feature is enabled sometimes by defalt usb dissables.
\015\012 i hope this helped.

I purchased a 'broken' c400 off ebay, rather foolishly thinking it's an easy fix.... Basically I need to find a way to install an operating system on the computer - it has no cd drive, no floppy and doesn't support booting from USB. I have tried installing Windows XP on the hard drive by putting it in another computer (one with a CD drive) but when I put the HDD back into the c400 the computer fails to recognise the Disk. If I try using other hdd's (that I know work) the c400 fails to
