Compaq ML530 800 Mhz + Smart Array 641

We have a Compaq Ml530 800 Mhz server and we will upgrade this server with a Compaq Smart Array 641.

When we install de Smart Array 641 and 2 36,4 Gb 15K hard disk and we start de smart start software (version 5.4) the software didnâ t detect de raid controller.
When we start smart start 6.4 the software tell us that this version is not support by your system.

We have installed Windows 2003 Srv Dutch without Smart start but when Windows is starting there is a blue screen and the server restart.

We have also a new Compaq ML530 (g2) with this raid controller and Windows 2003 Srv Dutch and that works correct.

How can we install Windows 2003 Srv Dutch on this system with a raid controller ?

Thanks for your help.

The ML530 is a supported hardware config for 2003. You can not use any 6.x version of SmartStart. 5.5 does not give you the option of selecting 2003 for the OS.

I think your best bet would be to use SmartStart 5.5 - do the Manual Config - select Windows 2000 for your OS.

I would make sure all your firmware is up to date also.
