suse 10.2 doesn't boot after install reboot on hp proliant ml370 g5

Hi guys,
I installed suse 10.2 on hp proliant ml370 g5.The installation seemed to have completed ok but when the system reboots for post-installation configs, the server can't boot from the hard disk.Has anyone had such a prob before? Or can anyone help?

Unhappy suse 10.2 doesn,t boot after install reboot on hp ml 375

How did you do the install from the internet or from the dvd or cd ?
Installing from the dvd or cd she started with the init boot from you,re own media that why I prefer using a dvd or cd I realize that doing so that
a lot of time is spend in downloading but it is safer. I install a lot
of suse distro never had this if a problem most it is after the init boot
mostly because xserver would not started mostly because the refresh rate or color depth from monitor is wrong

all the best

I installed from CDs.I didn't think the problem could be the refresh rate of the monitor because,one, the non-gui boot process doesn't even start.Two,from my other installs, the monitor indicates if the problem is refresh rate or resolution.
The prompt I get after the BIOS stuff is that "ATEMPTING TO BOOTING FROM Hard disk" and it stays there forever.
