The thing i love the most from this platform (as an electronics guy)
is the fact that you usually have an SRC for everything from "user
farted" to "obscure failure on lic code, call ibm"

If the 520 isnt booting, it WILL say why, and from there we can see
what the problem is.
I've seen lot's of dvd-drives fail on xseries, but only 1 or 2 (and
the older 5.25" at that) on as400/iseries/POWER hardware...

Bring us an SRC and we'll get to the bottom in no time.

Best regards,

Does it stop on a code and go no further, although it is searching the
DVD/CD if it gets no code it should search for tape drive to boot from.

I saw that in February. A new DVD drive did the trick.

Subject: No Boot from DVD on 9406-520

I was given a 520 and wanted to do a little testing. When I got it, it
would not boot from DVD ( IBM PID or otherwise ). I figured it was just the
drive. So I paid my money and acquired replacement. Still can't find the
loadsource. I have reseated everything I can find but still no boot from
CD/DVD. This is a LAN Console system. I even isolated the battery on the
FSP to force it back to defaults with now luck.

Anyone seen this be anything but the DVD drive?
