Problems w/ Compaq Proliant 6500


Recommended Posts

I recently came into possession of 2 Compaq Proliant 6500 servers, along with a bunch of spare hardware.

I've been trying to load an OS on to one, but it refuses to recognize the CD drives. This makes it hard to run a live distro, let alone install an OS.

It won't even boot the Compaq SmartStart disc I burned.

Does anyone have experience with this sort of hardware?

Here are the resources I've been trying to use:

Compaq Manuals

Compaq Hardware Description

Gentoo Wiki and the 6500

Any help would be much appreciated.
