Ok wel heres my problem. im trying to get Ubuntu / Fedora to load unto my HP netserver LX PRO. Im going to make a source server out of it. But i can't get it to boot. It keeps saying there is no BIOS then it says there is no bootable SCII device?
Is there something different that i have to do with this server? I assumed it was the same as any computer. Is there a special way to do it with a server?
From what i see physically (can't get into bios) Its four pentium pro @ 200mhz with maybe 10gb or 4gb of ram. It has a dedicated RAID card with 12x18gb SCII drives. It has a floppy and cd drive. Would this make a good Gmod or TF2 server?
Your problem, I suspect, is the RAID controller. You need a Linux install disk with a kernel that has been built containing the driver for that controller. Your best bet is to find out the make and model of that controller then Google those details plus the word Linux.
You will probably also have had to set up a RAID volume before you start. Servers normally come with utility disks allowing you to do this or even a BIOS option activated by a particular key combination.
I think that im missing the utility disk, But that makes complete since. So how would i add the driver into the kernel? or might i be able to find a kernel that already has drivers for my RAID card in it?
Depending upon the card, you should be able to find a distribution with a suitable kernel. Googling the particular card may provide the name of a suitable distribution. Even just Googling "Linux" + your server model may help.
You could always build a suitable kernel yourself on Linux installed on another machine, but this can be a complicated procedure if you are not used to it.
You may be able to get the utility disk from the HP website.
