HP Proliant DL380 G5 Rack mounted server.

By francisgamo ·
Hello everyone,

I Have Hp proliant DL380 G5, when i start booting the machine it says one logical drive has failed on box 1: bay 3, i ignored the message at this time, after booting i check it from smart array utilities and i confirmed that it is really damage, so i disconnected the physical drive without shutting down the machine, after rebooting there is a message the keeps on displaying that PXE error and it doesn't give me a chance to boot on windows server 2003.

Please help me, Thanks in advance.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

However you need to replace the failed drive and rebuild the array.
