ML530TG2 Xeon 3.0 Bash-2.05A#

When booting the SmartStart 6.40 CD for initial installation, I receive a bash-2.05a# error message. Can you tell me what is causing this and how to correct the problem.

I know this can occur on older machines but the ML530G2 is suppose to be supported.

This link indicates that the ML530G2 is supported by all versions of SmartStart from 5.50.

Have you added any hardware to the server?

I would try going here:〈=en&cc=us
select your OS and install the newest BIOS and appropriate firmwares, then retry.


Make a great day!
