You will probably find that when you boot the machine, you get a chance to enter "diagnostics" or something like that. In most cases that will come off a partition on the machine rather than internal to the machine (BIOS etc). It is an easy way to have the graphical and feature rich diagnostics without using expensive chips.

That wouldn't have been created by Windows. I would suspect that would be created by the hardware supplier. I know HP will setup a separate partition. It will store their diagnostics tools. Means you don't need the CDs to load the tools in case of hardware problems.

Did you install Windows using a disk supplied by the server supplier?
