During POST server is giving the error "failed to find the bootable device, retrying...." RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a CISCO (UCS C220 M3) server, which was running with WINDOWS 2008 R2 OS. In earlier days, when the server was running, I took the offline backup of the server through Acronis 11.7. Offline Backup had completed successfully. One day, I and my one colleague thought that we have the offline backups of the servers, that backups would be working or not. So, for testing purpose, we just chose a server running on network, but not in network production and restore the backup on the server without any array re-configuration or RAID re-configuration. Restoration process got completed successfully. After restoration, the server is giving the error message "failed to find bootable devices, retrying..."

    After that, I checked then server and I got the HDDs and RAID configuration are showing during POST of the server, but in CISCO Integrated Management Console (CIMC), the HDDs or RAID configuration are not showing.

    Please suggest us, what we can do to resolve the issue.

    You have erroneously posted your Windows Server question in a user forum dedicated to Project Server, an enterprise project management application.  I would recommend you repost your question in a forum dedicated to Windows Server instead.  Hope this helps.
