I have an T300 up and running however every time the server boots, it stops after the DRAC setup prompt with the message below.

The server boots just fine after hitting F1.

I cannot find anything in BIOS or DRAC setup that would appear to cause the stop.

I have removed the PCI card and the server still stops during boot.


Any suggestions on how to disable RAD please?

Thanks
Rodrigo

did you see the POST screen from the beginning?
when it does that there, it means there is a hardware issue
from my experience it was little things like memory upgrade where modules weren't inserted correctly and receding resolved it

do you have OMSA installed?
i would look at that as it would give a lot more details as to the issue

the remote access controller has nothing to do with it as it is usually the last item during post and just so happens the 'press F1' message appears immediately after
