Proliant ML350 G5

Hi I recently purchased a Proliant ML350 G5. I have failed to install SuSe Linux Enterprise Server 9 onto it. When I insert the Smartstart CD, there is no option for SuSe linux Enterprise Server 9 among the OS options. How do i overcome this?

Thanks

Re: Proliant ML350 G5

Your best option is to install directly from the SUSE CD without using smart start.

Check if the drivers/modules (storage/network) needed are available for Enterprise 9.

Hello,
ML350 G5 Supports only SmartStart Version 7.51, 7.6 & 7.7.
There is NO way to Overcome this as its not supported EVEN with the latest 7.8.

Only PSP supports SLES 9 & 10.

Also, refer:

Installing Directly from the SUSE CD is the "ONLY" option.

Thanks guys,

I tried installing directly from the SLES9 CD, but it reaches a point and says it can not find the hard disk.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
