Fresh Linux (Debian and CentOS) installation will not boot

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am trying to install either Debian or CentOS on a home server (Fujitsu PRIMERGY TX100 S3). I first tried installing Debian. The whole installation was successful (including grub). But after rebooting, the OS would not boot up. My partition was the default setting for new users: /dev/sda1 primary /dev/sda5 logical (swap) After booting, it gets to Intel Boot Agent and says it can't boot from media. I even tried disabling the DVD drive as a boot option. There is another device listed in boot options but the name is so ambiguous (IBA GE Slot 0200 v1372), I don't even know for sure if it (HowTos)
