No boot on restored server
We've just restored a server to new hardware, a new HP ML300 with the drives in a RAID5 array. We installed a fresh copy of 2003 server and then restored the backup to the new drives.
In the BIOS the boot is set to the RAID card, and in the RAID bios the boot is set to the only logical volume in there. But booting the server just results in a blank screen, no errors, no messages about missing boot partition etc - just nothing!
When running the recovery console, it see the Windows partitions and we've run FIXBOOT and FIXMBR and that worked ok, but still results in a blank screen!
Anyone any suggestions? This is brand new hardware but I'm thinking theres a fault as we don't get any evidence that the server is even trying to boot from the raid card at all!
