You have the same machine as i. To the best of my knowledge it does not support 2 gig sticks. Thats why the say it only supports 4 gig of ram. I hope that is correct still. I also do not have a12 Bios so it could have changed.

The best thing to do is reinstalling SCSI, SATA can only manage two disk per channel on this server, and the data transfer time is longer.

If you set SATA, check jumper settings, that is probably reason why you get no primary drive.
Also check bios settings , do hdd auto detect and save in bios if you want to use sata.

If instead you want to go back to SCSI, download the drivers from the link below.

Download page from Dell.

If they are Dell they likely have the licence key sticker on them.
Get a Windows server 2000 CD(you can download it and it will be legal if you instal it with a purchased licence key.) and perform a clean install of it using the licence key on the sticker of each server.

I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first.    My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card?    Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.

ahhh ok, well in the bios of some machines their is an option to schedule a wakeup time for the PC, and you could also enable Wake On Lan and then wake up the PC remotely from a computer outside of the server room?

Sounds like you're running Windows Server 2003 and want to run a backup utility.

Fortunately, this OS ships with a built-in backup utility called we call "ntbackup."

You can launch this program from Start -> Run, or you can find it in Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Backup.

Find the drives on the old server back them up via hard drive or cd/s etc get 2003 windows disc and load in onto new server, then copy over files from old server. Then use a program like nero back it up and have your new server copy all info to old server every week or day.

GOODLUCK!

Beside administrator, were there any other user accounts on the machine? If so, you can log in as one of those. If they have admin rights, even better.

Depending on the lock out policy that was set in windows, try it again. In some cases, it may be a few hours, in some cases, it may be days. All depends on how the policy was set up.

If this all fails, your next option would be to reload the OS and start all over. You can use the original instal disks that came with it.

What operating system is the server using? What roles is the server doing (DNS/DHCP/DC/Exchange/etc). If it's a Windows 2003 SBS box, you're supposed to be able to run upto about 75 users. I would never run more than 30 users on an SBS box (and it'd have to be a very high spec). You may consdier bringing another server to do an aditional role (file/print) and leave the primary to be an SBS box

I had the same thing happen in a 600SC about a month ago.
Replaced the memory, and it fixed the problem.

It did the same hang. Would run fine for any where from a hour to 3 hours, and then quit (hang). And I got the same message. Talk to them and it was a short in the memory module, so some times it would read the entire stick, other times it would "not see it", and that would lock the OS.

I am assuming that you mean it won't boot after you install by "It won't take". if so, you need to use the F6 key at the beginning (I mean the very beginning of booting from the CD). Keep pressing it until the question asking you to press F6 if needed dissapears. You need to have a floppy disk with the SCSI/RAID drivers on it. If this is not the case, then you need to elaborate on "Won't take"

You'll need to load the SCSI hard drive controller driver.

Hi

First, turn off the system including any attached peripherals, and disconnect the system from its electrical outlet.

1. Using the system key, unlock the front bezel.
2. Slide the latch right and pull the top edge of the bezel away from the front panel. Pivot the bezel downward until it is at an angle to the panel. Remove the bezel from the slots on the panel.
3. Loosen the three thumbscrews on the left side of the cover.
4. Grasp the cover at both ends and slide it towards the front of the system. And lift the cover away from the system.
5. Press the release tab on the front and back of Fan 2 assembly, then slide the fan assembly (black plastic shroud) up and out of the system
6. Disconnect the power cable for the Fan 2 assembly from the system board.

You can now access the six memory slots. Review System Memory / General Memory Module Installation Guidelines and carefully install the new memory modules.

I have provided some pictures below to help you.

Hi

I do not know why you need the automatic power on for your server. Server should be on all the time 24/7 .
If it is a PC , then you should know that even though shutdown , they are still on (you can see a light) .
This means you can use magic bullet to wake it up (wake up on lan).
Read up on magic bullet.

Good luck,
David

Hi

Did you receive a VRM with the the PRC upgrade kit? And have you installed it?

The following items are/should be included in a microprocessor upgrade kit:
• A microprocessor (PRC)
• A heat sink
• Heat-sink retention clip(s)
• A voltage regulator module (VRM),
Your upgrade kit may also include a cooling fan.

If you are adding a secondary microprocessor, examine the VRM to ensure that it is the correct VRM for your system. Install the VRM in the appropriate secondary VRM connector, ensuring that the latches at each end of the connector engage. If you received two VRMs with the upgrade kit, replace the primary VRM already installed in the system with one of the VRMs from the upgrade kit.
Note: The system does not support mismatched VRMs.

Check PE1600sc Microprocessor Upgrade Installation Guide - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe1600sc/multlang/proc/9D904A05.pdf

Let me know how you get on
