I've got a Dell PowerEdge 1800 running Windows Server 2003, and as the result of a power outage have had both power supplies go down.
I've been given the task of trying to get the two Hardrives from the Dell to work in a Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop (running XP). It's not running anything massively powerful, it's just used for our Re-Imaging desktop at work.
The 2 hardrives from the dell are in, new ram installed, but it just won't boot up from the primary hardrive used in the dell. It recognises both HD's but gets stuck in a continuous boot loop.
Any suggestions on the drivers I need/ next step to get this working. Yes it's an old system which will be replaced but due to a non existent budget I've been asked to just try and make something work.
Any ideas? I'm happy to give more system information if that's helpful - I'm just a bit over my head with this one!
Thanks for the suggestion! The BIOS is recognising Master and Slave, but just doesn't get any further than the boot up screen. It says it recognises the HD's, and I can select which one to put from, but if I tell it to boot from the master drive that the Dell would boot on the Lenovo just gets stuck in a cycle.
