Boot disk will not work

I am not sure where to post this question (I am having trouble getting a boot disk to work so I thought this may be the place)...

I have a HP ProLiant DL380 (not sre what version). I have to install a type of PBX on it. I put the boot disk in and powered up and it didn't see the DVD; that is, it just booted off the hard drive. I assumed the boot sequence was the issue but I could not find where to change that in the bios.

On google I found my issue was common and the solution was to "Clear NVRAM" in the advanced settings of the bios. I did this and now when it boots up it says "non-system disk or disk error".

Would be grateful for any assistance...

  1. Change the boot order to boot off the CD/DVD first so you can install. If the below doesn't work, it's possible the CD/DVD is incorrectly burned or corrupt.

  2. Thanks for the reply - I cannot find in the bios where to change the boot order ?!?!? But... I can see that it is trying the CD first. I have verified that there is nothing wrong with the DVD.

    Hmm.... any other ideas?
  3. I found my boot order in bios and it is properly set. Now I am wondering how I screwed it up by erasing the nvaram...
