Shut down an HP DL380 G7 for updates. It would not power back on. All lights on the back were on, I could reach the iLo card (Not Configured) but the server would not spin up when the power button was pressed. I pulled the server from the rack and took it to the shop, that took about an hour. The server booted? I completed updates and thought I would shut it down to test the situation.

The server would not boot. Initially the fans would start to spin and the drives would flash in sequence blue, orange green I believe and then it would attempt to cycle again never actually booting. Not the server just will not power up. Any ideas or assistance would be appreciated.
