Server 2012 R2 won't boot on brand new R730xd.
The server has four virtual disks:
OS RAID 1 2X280GB 10K SAS
SSD DATA RAID 5 4X1TB SSD
DATA1 RAID 5 4X4TB HDD
DATA2 RAID 6 8X4TB HDD
In the PERC configuration the boot device is the OS RAID but after installing the OS when i rebooted the server i cant boot and get a message "No boot device available"
Below are my bios boot configuration and my PERC boot configuration
Robert, Thanks for your reply.
As you can see in the images i attached using iDRAC, my boot configuration in the BIOS is set to the PERC RAID controller (Hard-Disk Sequence) and on PERC it is set to VD0 which is where i installed the OS.
Can you suggest what i am missing?
* When using F11 and choosing the PERC controller i still can't boot (No boot device available)
All looks good then. What method did you use to install the OS? If you used the OS installation DVD, then you had to load the drivers including the drivers for H710P Mini controller externally because they are not native to Windows Server 2012 R2. I would recommend that you re-install the OS using the LifeCycle Controller (LCC); hit F10 during POST and selecting OS deployment. This option loads all necessary drivers for you to be able to boot from the VD0. See link for more information: http://dell.to/1OQQntn
