If your Dell server cam with the Windows Server 2003 software, you should be able to order a replacement cd. Go to http://www.dell.com/support If the software was not packaged with the server, you will have to buy it at http://www.microsoft.com/sales

How can i istall windows server 2000 on Dell Poweredge T300


Windows 2000 is not supported on this machine. The closest you could get is using a hypervisor XenServer or VMWare ESXi and then installing Windows 2000 on a virtual machine.

Problem with the Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server Can't detect Hard drive


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

ok you will need to get the windows 2003 drivers for your raid controller and put them on a floppy disk. when you first boot off the cd you will see a prompt to press f6 if you need to install any additional drivers. insert the floppy disk and select which driver you wish to load.
you should be able to see the hard drives now to partition/format.

The server should have came with an OpenManage CD.
You boot to the CD and it walks you through setting up arrays and installing the OS.
If you don't have the CD you can download it.
Go to support.dell.com Drivers and Downloads and enter your server's Service Tag.
Dell servers have lifetime phone support so give them a call if you need more assistance. (800) 945-3355

You can either do this in the BIOS or (easier) just run a Linux installer (such as Ubuntu) and it will offer to do it for you when it sees Windows-formatted partitions.
