Troubleshooting
This section will help you resolve some of the most common installation
problems.
Tip #1. Troubleshooting SCSI Host Bus Adapter Configuration
The boot manager for Windows NT contains recovery logic to allow you to return
to the last known good configuration. If you have changed your SCSI host bus
13
Chapter 2
Installing Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server
adapter configuration and Windows NT no longer boots, follow these steps to
recover:
1. Undo any hardware changes you have made to the computer since it was last
operational.
2. Reboot the computer. Press the spacebar when the message "Press
spacebar NOW to invoke the Last Known Good menu."
Appears. Follow the instructions on the screen to continue booting.
NOTE
Do not log in if you pass the "Press spacebar NOW to
invoke the Last Known Good screen" option,
because this will wipe out the configuration you want.
3. Once your computer is operational again, double check all the hardware and
software configuration changes you wish to make. Look specifically for
conflicts with parts of the existing system configuration that are not being
changed. If you cannot determine the source of the error, contact the host
adapter vendor or HP Technical Support for assistance.
Tip #2. NT Warning About Drives with More than 1024 Cylinders
If the boot drive is new or just initialized, Windows NT may give a warning
message about disk drives having more than 1024 cylinders during the first reboot
from the hard drive. Windows NT may hang just after the SCSI BIOS or Disk
Array BIOS banner. This is a Windows NT limitation, please see Microsoft
TechNet article # Q137474 for details.
In some situations, the Windows NT installation program may detect the hard
drive geometry incorrectly, and thus limit the initial drive partition size to 1024
MB or hang while rebooting. To correct this problem, perform the following
solutions:
In the Windows NT installation program:
1. Partition the primary partition to 1024 MB.
2. Format the primary partition using FAT.
3. Press F3 to quit the installation program.
4. Restart the installation program.
5. At the drive partition screen, delete the 1024 MB primary partition.
6. Partition the primary partition to any desired size up to the drive capacity.
7. Continue with the Windows NT installation program.

Chapter 2
Installing Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server
Tip #3. Service Pack Files Replaced Without Feedback
Some system configuration changes may ask you to install the original Windows
NT drivers diskette. This may cause some system files to be replaced with the old
version.
It is recommended that you apply the service pack again if you make any changes.
Tip #4. Using the NT Event Log to Diagnose Network Adapter
Problems
If the Network Adapter driver fails to start or does not appear to be working
correctly, examine the Event Log for any driver diagnostic messages.
1. Start the Event Viewer applet in the Administrative Tools group in Program
Manager.
2. Search the Event Log Source column for any entries named "Hptx."
3. Double-click on the entry to examine the Event Detail dialog box. The upper
half of the box gives a short generic description of the error. The lower half
of the box is a hex and ASCII dump of error data.
4. Scroll through the error data in ASCII for any readable strings.
5. If a readable string is present, it will describe the problem in more detail.
6. If no readable string is present, this typically indicates that the driver failed
early in the process of loading-usually due to a resource conflict (for
example, an I/O port conflict).
NOTE
Make sure the Network Adapter is connected to a working hub
and verify that the LED is lit. Otherwise, the Network Driver
may not install.
Tip #5. Booting from Another SCSI HDD
To boot Windows NT from another SCSI hard disk, press Ctrl-A during system
boot to enter SCSI-Select menu. In this menu, configure the SCSI Hard Drive
Priority option in the Boot Device Ordering menu.
Tip #6. Restarting Windows NT installation
If you want to restart Windows NT installation from the very beginning, use a
utility such as fdisk to erase all data and partitions from your hard drive. Then
resume all installation process.

PHASE 4 – Install Windows 2000 Recovery Console
Please refer to Tip#6 in the Troubleshooting section.
Troubleshooting
This section will help you resolve some of the most common installation
problems.
Tip #1. Upgrading from NT 4.0 to Windows 2000
It is possible to upgrade from any edition of NT 4.0 including Terminal Server to
Windows 2000. Please refer to the readme.doc on the Windows 2000 CD and
the Windows 2000 Setup Guide for information on how to perform the upgrades.
Tip #2. Windows 2000 Installation halts about three minutes after
starting to boot from CD-ROM
When installing Windows 2000 on any X86 system with more than one hard drive
it is possible to experience the following error:
Setup has encountered an error and cannot continue. Contact
technical support for assistance. The following status
codes will assist them in diagnosing the problem. (0x4,
0x1, 0x0, 0x0)
28
Chapter 3
Installing Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Small Business Server 2000
The cause of this problem is that the NTLOADER is encountering a duplicate hard
drive signature. This signature is calculated by the NTLOADER code after reading
a specific sector offset from the hard drive. The following list provides some of the
things that can cause hard drive to have duplicate signatures:
1. Low-level formatting the drives. We reproduced this on several systems at
HP.
2. When you have a set of drives previously used with a DAC and move them
to a SCSI adapter.
3. Using a disk imaging utility to duplicate a hard drive will create a duplicate
signature.
At this time, Microsoft has no fix for this problem. For more information please
refer to Microsoft document ID: Q226361.
HP recommends that you use the following workaround for this problem.
1. If you experiences this problem, remove all drives with the exception of the
target boot drive. Install Windows 2000 and then add the removed hard
drives to the system.
2. Run the Disk Management tool to prepare the remainder of the drives to be
used in the system.
a. Boot the system with a Windows 98SE recovery diskette. (This version
supports FAT32, which works on large hard drives.)
b. Perform an FDISK on each drive.
c. Install Windows 2000.
Tip #3. Configure the Parallel (LPT) Port for ECP Mode
The device manager may not show this port on the list when not configured in
ECP mode.
HP recommends that you systematically configure the LPT port for ECP mode.
Use the following procedure to change the setting:
1. Press F2 during power on self-test.
2. Select Advanced | I/O Device Configuration | Parallel Port | Mode.
3. Press Enter and select "ECP".
4. Press F10 and select yes to confirm to save and exit.
29
Chapter 3
Installing Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Small Business Server 2000
Tip #4. Installing HP NetRAID-1M Driver After Windows 2000 is
Installed
1. Use the HP Navigator CD-ROM shipped with your HP NetRAID-1M
accessory to create the Windows 2000 driver diskette:
a. Boot your server (or any PC system) with the Netserver Navigator in the
CD-ROM.
b. Go to the Diskette Library from the main menu and follow on-screen
instructions.
NOTE
Please consult the "HP NetRAID-1m installation guide" for
instructions on doing the physical installation of the adapter.
2. Ensure that the HP NetRAID-1M controller is installed in your system, then
reboot your system so that the system can recognize the controller.
3. When the system is rebooted and the controller recognized, Windows 2000
automatically launches the Found New Hardware wizard and displays a
Files Needed dialog box.
4. It prompts for the location on the A: drive for the HP NetRAID-1M
controller driver files. Insert the driver's diskette created with the HP
Navigator CD-ROM and click OK. The system will proceed with the
installation of the driver.
5. When the driver finishes installing, click Finish to exit the Found New
Hardware wizard.
6. At the message "Do you want to restart the computer
now?", click Yes to reboot the system (remember to remove all diskettes and
CD-ROM from their respective drives).
Tip #5. Windows 2000 Drivers Signatures
Windows 2000 checks for digital signatures on driver files to help maintain system
integrity. During the installation or update of a driver, if there is no matching
signature file Windows 2000 displays a "Digital Signature not Found"
box.
• To expedite release of new products, drivers may be shipped by HP without
signature files. All Windows 2000 drivers provided by Hewlett-Packard are
submitted to Microsoft for certification testing . Upon completion of testing,
Microsoft produces signature files. HP then posts the revised driver package
at http://www.hp.com.
30
Chapter 3
Installing Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Small Business Server 2000
• If a signature warning is displayed during installation of a driver, you may
override the warning. We recommend that you check the HP Website for the
latest driver package. If available, install the new driver.
• You can elect to have Windows 2000 ignore signatures: Open Start |
Settings | Control Panel | System | Hardware | Driver Signing. This is
helpful if you are setting up multiple systems.
• Digital signatures are a powerful way to ensure system integrity as you add
drivers to your systems - whether provided by HP or others.
Tip #6. Windows 2000 Recovery Options
In the event that the current installation of Windows 2000 fails to boot (this might
happen after installing a new driver, component, software, etc), Windows 2000
provides the following recovery options to help you gain access to your Windows
2000 installation to replace damaged files and services for troubleshooting
purpose. HP therefore recommends that you install the Recovery Console (see
option 3 below) to enhance the system configuration.
Recovery option #1: Last known good configuration
• Activated by pressing F8 during the system process of Windows 2000 and
selecting "Last Known Good Configuration" from the menu.
• This boot mode is used in the case that the system fails to boot after installing
a new software or driver. The system will use the previous registry setting to
initialize and boot the system.
Recovery option #2: Safe Mode Boot
Activated by pressing F8 during the system boot. It provides minimal
configuration with required drivers and services. The safe mode boot provides
three options:
1. Standard safe mode boot. Provides no network services or drivers.
2. Networking disabled. Includes networks services and drivers.
3. Directory services restore mode. Brings system up with directory services
disabled with the intent of recovering active directory. Safe mode boot is
guided by the registry key
hklm\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot with the use of the
Minimal and Network subkeys. The IOManager and Service Control
Manager look at the registry to load the driver and services. Such approach
avoids loading a problematic driver or service.
31
Chapter 3
Installing Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Small Business Server 2000
4. Command prompt. Provides an alternate command shell CMD.EXE instead
of the explorer. This is dictated by the registry key:
hklm\system\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\AlternateShell
There is a Safe-Mode boot loophole. Since NTLDR loads "Boot Load" drivers,
these drivers bypass the IO Manager's Safe Mode check.
Recovery option #3: Recovery Console (RC) Boot
The Recovery Console (RC) can be used when safe boot fails. You can enter RC:
• either by booting from Windows 2000 CD-ROM
• or by installing the RC boot on your system.
It is recommended to install the RC immediately after installing Windows 2000.
Start RC Booting from Windows 2000 CD-ROM
If you have a need of booting the Windows 2000 recovery console but this feature
is not installed on the system, use the following procedure to boot the RC from the
Windows 2000 CD-ROM.
1. Insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM and start the reboot sequence.
2. Press any key when prompted to start booting from the Windows 2000 CDROM.
3. Press F10 at the Welcome to Setup screen.
NOTE
This is an undocumented option. The bottom of the display is
asking you to press Enter, R or F3.
4. The system will display a menu asking to select the instance of the NOS you
want to boot. For example:
1: C:\WINNT
5. Type 1 then Enter.
