Can't boot server 2008
Posted on 2013-01-22
I have a poweredge 1850 that was unplugged for a while. When i tried to boot the server today I pressed the function key to continue after being notified that the cache data would be lost because the battery was not funcitoning correctly on the raid card. Now when booting i get
no boot device available. press f1 to continue press f2 for setup
The OS is server 2008 r2 and i can get the server to boot if i use an acronis boot cd and select boot to OS. However if there is no boot cd and the server is rebooted i am back to no boot device.
Could this be something that i have to change in the raid controller or perhaps the BCD store?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
