I had this problem too, and solved it with a temporary PC with the loot disk payonel mentioned, and a hard drive. Apart from memory+APU+screen+keyboard, that's it. I booted the PC off the floppy disk, and made a note of the hard disk's ID, than ran 'install'. Then 'shutdown' for an obvious reason. Now, take everything out of your computer, if you wish. Put the newly flashed hard drive in the server, and start it (should succeed). I actually flashed two drives, the other was Plan9k, using this method.
