System completes POST but drive fails


  1. Be sure no loose connections exist.
  2. Be sure no device conflict exists.
  3. Be sure the hard drive is cabled properly and terminated if necessary.
  4. Be sure the hard drive data cable is working by replacing it with a known functional cable.
  5. Be sure the access panel is installed properly when the server is operating. Drives may overheat and cause sluggish response or drive failure.
  6. Run Insight Diagnostics and replace failed components as indicated.
  7. Run RBSU to verify that the boot controller order is set properly.
