I am new to servers, and my task is to install Ubuntu(or any other OS) onto a new Intel server. However, I have problems turning on the server. With both power cables plugged in, the time the server take to enter the BIOS is at least 5 minutes, and in some worst cases, the server cannot enter BIOS. The VGA has no signal and the USB has no power. Even in the same environment, the result is not reproducible(That means there is always a possibility to fail).
Is it an indication of hardware program(Not likely, it is a brand new server)? Or is my faulty operations the cause? Any suggestions? thanks.
