Can't install SLES 9 SP3 on HP DL 320 G5p

I Can't install SLES 9 SP3 (Novell OES SP2) on HP ProLiant DL 320 G5p

SATA 82801GR controller
LSI Logic SAS1068 Fusion-MPT PCI-X
HP 8 Internal Port SAS HBA with RAID
SATA CD-Rom TEAC DV-W28S-RS
INTEL e1000 NIC

It seems no CD-Rom was found by SLES as well as no NIC was found. So I can't start install nor using CD or LAN.

I started booting from OES SP2 CD 1. The boot loader started normally, but when I chose Installation it says
Could Not Find the SLES 9 Installation CD. Activating Manual Installation.

Here in the manual installation screen I check
System Information - Hard Disks and CD-Roms
It says
No Hard Disks or CD-Rom drives have been detected so far

Then
1. I erased the BIOS/HD through RBSU
2. downlaod Driver Diskette for HP U320 SCSI Adapter, SAS HBA with RAID, SCxxXe and SCxxGe series HBA (x86 and AMD32) for SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (x86)
3. startfed installation again.

Now I can see in the manual installation screen - System Information - Hard Disks and CD-Roms MY RAID 1 ARRAY 278GB, but still NO CD-ROM, NO NICS at ALL.

How can I start installation, whatever using CD, LAN or HDD?

Please Help.

Hi,

You should try SP4 instead, see here,

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/linux/supportmatrix/sles/exceptions/sles-exceptions.html

... scroll down to your model, only SP4 is supported. Let's try that and then if it fails we can take it from there.
