Hello,

wie had the same problem with boot on san BL460c G6 and Windows 2008.

It is important to have a singelpath to the storage.

Hello,

Yea, I tried with single path as well it didn't work out (same problem). But I was able to installed w2k8 R2 it worked without problem, Only I am having problem with non R2 standard edition (Japanese OS).

Try removing any mezzanine cards or storage blades if you have any connected. You need to make the install as basic as possible.

I am installing on EMC storage disk if i removed mezzanine card how would it connect storage?

By the way I tried to install using smartstart CD as well but didn't display Storage disk.

Hello,

it is really important that you have only an a singelpath.

Your Storage has more as one controller interface.

Create a zoning with only one storagecontrollerinterface and one bladeinterface.

Thank you Ronny. It worked with single zoning path.

After successfully installed OS, I installed Powerpath and did zoning and masking for multipath as before again System got frozen. (system doesn't start up) does anybody has encounter with such problem and any ideas if it has been fixed. I have never enountered with such problem before.
