HP Proliant dl160 G6 blank screen (hanging) after restart

29 Apr

Here is an interesting issue that I’ve came across while deploying a bunch of HP Proliant DL160 G6 servers.
You restart the server and the it would hang with blank screen, the fans would be running at full speed.  To make the server boot you have to remove the power to the server and plug it bak again. This is a known issue and it was can be fixed by updating the Bios firmware of the server to Version: 2011.01.25 (B). 
Resolved an issue where the system will occassionally hang early in POST with the fans at max speed with the 12LFF hard disk backplane installed.
