I have a SS4200E that I cannot get to work.
I have tried;
no drives - just the DOM with the switch on "M"
one drive Seagate ST3500320AS (500 gig)
two drives Seagate ST3500320AS (500 gig)
I then created partitions on each drive, and formated each.
There was no data on either drive.
When formating should there be no partitions on the drive?
I understand no boot partition, but what about extended partitions?
Sorry but this is my third day of trying to get this to work. I have nothing but blue flashing light on the power.
I'd suggest you remove all partitions on the hard drive (primary and extended partitions) before you install it into SS4200-E. If you're using only two hard drives, also check http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/ss4200-e/sb/CS-028954.htm.
