Long story short: Purchased from Staples as 'shop soiled' 2 years ago and took it to France. Tried to Factory reset without success (failing on steps 3 furthest point. Took drive out and erased contents.Now when I start the server I get power light and network light and no health light.

I have no idea what's happening as there is no video, can I remote access with a hard drive or indeed no hard drive?

How can I build the hard drive outside the server and just plug it in and everything will work?

I have all the original disks etc.

Please can anyone help as my next step maybe to throw it out.

If you search around you will find many posts on how to load the servers.

Direct connect with cat5 to a pc, run the server recovery cd and follow the instructions.
The main OS drive is in the bottom bay.
