Installing

I receive the error message "A disk read error occurred" after initial install of Windows 2000. Using a Proliant 2500 BOOS E24. 3 9.1 gig hard drives configured PORT2 0, 1, and 2. 4 logical drives 1st 8000 m. RAID0 2nd logical drive 10000mb RAID0, 3rd logical drive 1000mb, and the 4th logical drive the rest. I boot just fine using the W2K startup disks, I partition the first drive to install, and use all 8000mb (which turns out to be 7996 or close to that). It copies the files, and then requires a rebut. After I rebut, I receive the aforementioned error.

I articles refer to a BAD Boot sector or corrupt master boot record. I have no problems installing W2K when the drives are configured using the on board symbios card.

Again my smart array firm ware is v4.16.

Re: Installing

4.16 firmware may have something to do with this... Try updating to the latest with this kit:
