Recovered a Dell Poweredge Server that was set outside to die after the Nashville Floods of 2010. Hard drives were taken out before it was trashed. IT was fully submerged and caked with dirt. The video is of the second boot after about 4 hours of cleaning with cotton swabs, ru...bbing alcohol, a vacuum and air compressor. SHE LIVES!!!! All fans work, SCSI Card Boot, Full post without errors, both power supplies work. Future plans: Get 10k SAS HDs on RAID 5 working, 16GB of ram and one more XEON 4-Core for a total of 8-Cores and will turn this into a glorified LAB/Vmware Machine/Dynamips (Cisco emulation).
