Poweredge 2950 Raid Controller firmware upgrade problem
I have a Poweredge 2950:
OS – RHEL server
Perc 5/I - Configured with Raid 1 and Raid 5.
Raid controller firmware 5.1.1-0040
The server was running and working. I upgrade the Raid controller firmware to 5.2.2-0072 (the latest version). After the reboot it will not boot up. Hangs up right away after it states the “System Memory Speed: 667MHz”. Will not go any further unless I click “F2 – Setup”. Then hangs at “F/W Initializing Devices 0%” At that point I can go into the Raid Configuration Utility. And my setting are still there and correct. It even indicates that the Package is at 5.2.2-0072. So it looks like it took the upgrade but won't boot up.
Any suggestion on how to get this to boot up? Or how to reload the Raid controller firmware.
