This chapter mainly introduces manual installation of mainstream operation
system on this server. Rui Jie server kit supports intelligent automatic installation of
mainstream operation systems of Windows and Linux. Actual supported operation
systems are those in dropdown list in <Select the Operating System>, automatic
installation of these operation systems may not be supported by certain configuration
of the server, and you may need to install operation systems of other editions manually
according to actual requirements.
During manual operation of operation system, some operation systems may need
a floppy drive or Inspur drive U disk to load hard disk controller drive, for methods
to make a floppy drive, see readme.pdf under root directory in Inspur drive CD; if the
configuration purchased is integrated with Inspur drive U disk, for the making of a
drive U disk, please see related content in this chapter.
If the server is configured with an external RAID card or SAS card, please refer
to electronic user manual in external RAID card or SAS card CD to add a hard disk
controller drive. As for net drive, display drive and system service pack, you could still
refer to instructions in this chapter for installation.

chassis.
5. Remove other external components other than Inspur’s.
6. Pack the chassis, connect the power cable correctly and start the machine.
6.2.2 Monitor Has No Display
The server can be powered on (the host can start and run normally), but the
monitor doesn’t work:
1. Check the correctness and fastness of the signal cable and power cable
connected to the monitor.
2. Make sure to power on the display.
3. Adjust the contrast and brightness of the monitor to confirm whether it can
display or not.
4. Shut down the system and disconnect the power cable to check whether there is
curve in the pin at the connecting end of the monitor signal cable and the host.
5. Find another monitor for test if possible.
6. If the machine is installed with components other than Inspur ones, please
remove them first.
7. With the permission of Inspur technical support personnel, you may pull and
plug RAM and clear CMOS for test.
6.2.3 Installation System Can’t Find Hard Disk
1. When installing the system directly booted with the system CD, if it prompts
that no hard disk can be found, please check the normality of the disk state and poweron self-check hard disk state.
2. If the power-on self check can detect the hard disk but the hard disk can’t be
detected when installing the system, it may be caused by the following conditions:
● If you are using the system CD to boot and install the operating system directly,
the hard disk drive is generally added through the floppy driver or Inspur driver U disk.
When using USB floppy driver to add the drive, please set the BIOS first and close the
onboard floppy driver controller. When using Inspur driver U disk to add the drive,
please connect Inspur driver U disk when starting the server.
● Please check whether the driver having been made is correct or not (the drive
43
Chapter Six Install Operating System
for external RAID card should be made directly from the attached RAID card driver
CD) and whether there is fault in the floppy disk or Inspur driver U disk.
6.2.4 Instruction of Onboard SATA Controller
If it is configured onboard SATA HostRAID, it only supports windows system of
above Windows XP versions and connects 6 SATA devices at most.
6.2.5 Keyboard and Mouse Do Not Work
1. Check whether the cable joint of the mouse and keyboard is plugged and
connected correctly. Make sure the joint pin has no curve.
2. Check whether the mouse setting in the control panel of the operating system is
correct or not.
3. Clean the scrolling and drive shaft of the mouse.
4. It is suggested that you use the keyboard and mouse tested for compatibility by
Inspur group or replace with other keyboard and mouse for testing.
6.2.6 System Blue Screen, Halt or Restart
For blue screen, restart or halt of the machine in the utilization of the system, you
may refer to the following measures:
1. If other external non-Inspur components or some application program software
are installed before the fault, it is suggested removing it and going on to test your
server.
2. Use the latest antivirus software for antivirus test.
3. It is suggested that you record the displayed information code for blue screen,
such as: stop c000000218.....; stop: 0x0000007b. This kind of information reveals
problems in the system. It is suggested that you reinstall it. For the installation process,
you can refer to the user manual.
4. If all above operations failed to solve the problem, it is suggested that you
backup the file winnt/minidump in disk C, and call the service center for support
from professional technical engineers who may ask you to provide minidump file for
further analysis on the cause for blue screen and halt. If there is no minidump folder
in disk C, please refer to the following steps: right-click on My Computer, select
<Property>→<advanced>→<startup and recovery>, then select <settings>, change
<write debugging information> in the next page to “small RAM dump” and restart the
machine. The system will produce minidump file automatically in the next blue screen.

Chapter Six Install Operating System
6.3 Machine Alarm
If there’s machine alarm in startup or utilization process, please refer to the
following measures:
1. If this happens after you plugged in some external board, you may need to pull
off this device and to do another test. If the alarm goes off, it shows that your external
board is incompatible with the machine. It is suggested not to use it any more; if the
alarm is still on, please go on referring to the following steps.
2. Locate the alarm sound:
● When the alarm sound is from the front of the chassis, usually we notice
abnormal changes of the fault indicating light. There is the possibility of abnormal fans
or hard disk module;
● If the alarm sound is from the rear of the chassis, please check whether a
redundant power supply is configured or not and whether there is an abnormal status
light of the power supply module or a module without power cable (when power alarm
goes on, the shield switch can be pressed to stop it);
● If the alarm sound is in the chassis, the alarm may be from motherboard, RAID
card or hard disk back plane. If it is also accompanied by no display on the monitor
or power on faults, there is high possibility of something wrong with motherboard.
You can try to pull or plug RAM or clear CMOS; if the starting self-check is normal
and the alarm starts when the RAID card is under test, and there is abnormal array
information, then it is likely that the RAID card has set off the alarm. There may be
array abnormality; when the hard disk back plane alarms, there is always abnormal
status light of the hard disk on the front panel, which can be used to help analysis.
3. After having collected the basic information, please feedback the detailed alarm
information to Inspur technical support personnel in a timely manner. We will make
further analysis and judgment and help you solve the problem as soon as possible.
6.4 Additional Notes
1. In order to guarantee the reliability of the system, it is suggested that you use
the component of the relevant Model tested and authenticated by us when expanding
and equipping components.
2. Please guarantee the fine electricity utilization environment of the server,
normal voltage input and earth-connecting condition and temperature and humidity and
45
Chapter Six Install Operating System
so on within the normal range.
3. For special needs, when transferring the server, pay attention to avoiding the
vibration and carry out in power off condition..
4. The out of order problem introduction in Windows Server 2008 system
The phenomenon that the system disk /RAID volume is inconsistent with the
physical disk /RAID volume will appear when this product is in the AHCI mode
(with more than one disks) or HostRAID mode (with more than one RAID volume)
of SATA configuration when installing Windows Server 2008 operating system. This
phenomenon is the Bug of Windows Server 2008 operating system.
In the AHCI mode, if you want to install the operating system on the first physical
disk, when installing the operating system, you can insert the first disk and pull out
other disks. You can insert other disks after the installation is completed. Or enter
BIOS→SATA Configuration →SATA Port item and set SATA Port3/ Port4/ Port5 item
to [Disabled]. At this time, the system will be installed to the first physical disk. After
the completion of operating system installation, set SATA Port3/Port4/ Port5 item to
[Enabled].
In the HostRAID mode, please record the name of the RAID volume when you
are doing the RAID setting. When installing the operating system, please distinguish
the name of RAID volume so that the operating system can be installed in specified
place.
5. Explanation that the disk array capacity under SATA HostRAID mode is not the
maximum capacity.
This product integrates SATA HostRAID. During the creation of RAID
volume, the system will automatically analyze the size of the physical disk and will
automatically adjust the size of the RAID volume to 97% of the minimum physical disk
volume. Because of the different suppliers, physical disk capacity may vary.

Chapter One Safety Information
Chapter Eight Server Installation Guide
● The Guide will help you to understand how to install Inspur 1U server in Inspur
server cabinet or compatible standard industrial cabinet.
● After installing the server in the cabinet according to the Guide, please refer to
other accompany material to acquire more application directions.
● Please uncover the film on the cover plate of the server, and then power up to
use it.
● Pictures in the Guide just for reference, please give priority to real products.
8.1 Cabinet Preparation
Angle rail adjustment: in order to guarantee the 1U server can be installed in the
cabinet normally, the clearance between the front and rear part of the angle rail should
be adjusted to be at least larger than 740mm.
Leveling cabinet: the cabinet must be installed in a stable place. Adjust the
four support feet at the bottom of the adjustment cabinet to make the cabinet stable
on the ground. Meanwhile, dismount the cabinet door for convenience of guide rail
installation.
Cabinet grounding: to avoid electric shock, a grounding device must be installed
in the cabinet. If the server power line is installed in the power socket, which constitutes
a portion of the cabinet, grounding should be properly provided for the cabinet. If the
server power line is inserted into the power socket in the wall, the grounding device
in the power socket just provides grounding for the server, and then proper grounding
protection for cabinet and other internal devices should be provided. We recommend
you to use the cabinet specially designed by Inspur for the server. If so, the internal of
the cabinet should be already grounded. Please don’t change the ground joint in the
cabinet unless it is of absolute necessity.
Temperature: if installed in the cabinet, the operation and working temperature of
the server can’t be lower than 5℃ and higher than 35℃ .
Ventilation: the cabinet used by server cluster must provide enough wind current
for the front of the server to ventilate, and must ensure 4100Btu heat discharge per
hour. The cabinet selected by the cluster and ventilation condition must correspond
with requirements of the server.
