Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server ?

Ghost array0 over to newly setup array1 problems

\015 Hi All,We have run out of disk space on 2600 server array0 raid1 so I added 2 more drives and setup another array1 raid1. So I just wanted to boot of hiren's boot cd and use norton ghost to clone array0 over to array1. Then remove array0 from the machine stock the drives away and run off the new array1 which are larger drives.I cant get it to boot of the cd or even a floppy boot disk even though its set in bios. The system just wants to boot from array0 and go straight into windows server.Windows can see the new drive and at the moment it's no allocated.Is it possible to clone the drives in windows including the partitions?Many thanks, PaulC\015

Answers :

I should assume the CD drive is SCSI? What sequence is it set to come up in? Set it at 2 if possible. Have you checked, or better yet replaced the CD drive? Will it boot with ANYTHING else?
That Hiren's CD is not uuummm, kosher? People having problems booting with it and all, plus the utilities may not have full function anyway. No matter what, you will need to f/disk the destination drive. You will still need the CD drive to install the program too.
Backup software will still make an exact copy of your drive also. You might want to consider a little better product, especially concerning disaster recovery. not to get off topic but, a quote from J. Bolton on backup & recovery
"What will you do if a user overwrites a 1000page doc with a blank file with the same name?\015\012What will you do if one of multiple server apps goes bonkers? \015\012If the mainboard dies how will imaging get your system back? Do you\015\012stock a spare board so the image restore will work on the exact same\015\012hardware? After a system crash, Acronis True Image Enterprise Server\015\012allows you to perform a full system restore, a bare-metal restore or\015\012just a restore of individual files and folders.
Complete\015\012system restoration can be performed to an existing system, to a new\015\012system with different hardware or to a virtual machine. You could setup a whole new system and dump the image on that.

Keeps restarting My husband bought Averatec laptop in 2004, a year later something happen. I took it to have it check and they said it's the DVD ROM. So I had it replaced. Everything worked for a while, then we moved. when I turn on my laptop now it keeps restarting itself for like forever, my battery would probably run out. Anyway, I could get into the ''AMIBIOS HIFLEX SETUP UTILITY'' But i don't know anything about computers so i didn't do anything. What should i do and what is the problem?
