Hi everyone,
  I have an HP Proliant DL360 that is stuck at the BIOS screen, the screen where it lists the BIOS version, number of processors detected and amount of system memory. It says press any key to view option rom messages. Nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Does it have a CD-ROM?  and can you start it with a bootable CD (Ultimate Boot CD)?

Won't even get to that point where it looks for a bootable disk.

I would say then that you have a motherboard problem. Could be power supply or memory but you implied it listed memory properly. You could try one memory module to see if it gets farther and/or starts.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

start with the minimum setup, as described in my article :

On any ProLiant the first thing to do in such situations is to reset CMOS with switch 6 on the maintenance switch block. Change the position, power on and wait until it tells you to switch the switch back again. Location of the maintenance switches is normally on the label stuck to the inside of the case lid.
