I replaced Formatter board, with new harddrive (newer FW on drive). Plotter booted, but showed problem reading hard drive. I replaced new hard drive with orginial one. Plotter is up and running.

 

So the issue was the formatter was bad, and not the harddrive according to the light indicators. Researching the BIOS beeps, I am finding out that 5 beeps indicates memory problems. Is it possible to locate on the board where the memory problem is.

 

Issue is sloved.

What are the chances that the Formatter board is bad? That is my next step, but can't find one on anywhere.

It has been a while but I think the formatter was a standard ATX intel motherboard that hp put special bios to use as the main board. If your board has a cpu fan and some pci slots just look for the 2 black slots that have memory. You may only have 1 memory dimm installed but there are 2 slots. If in fact the beeps are for memory then just replace the memory with like dimms which are very cheap and abundant out there since it used older memory not used anymore.
