      Operating System NameMicrosoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition Service Pack
      MotherboardS3420GPC
      BiosS3420GP.86B.01.00.0042
      Memory4GB DDR3 1067

      Hard Drives6 x SATA 500GB 7200RPM Drives RAID 5 with Hotspare

       

      When i restart the server it takes about 7 min before i hear the beeps then the intel logo flashes. Anyone else experiencing long post times on this board.

          I would first update to the BIOS 51 package, then do a test boot without the RAID controller or any USB devices attached, and the memory temporarily removed

           

          You should get three beeps within maybe thirty seconds of power-on.  If you do, add the memory back in and do a test boot, then proceed doing one bit at a time.
