Compaq Proliant DL580 G1 Questions/Problems


I picked up some Proliant DL580 G1s recently. I bought some new HardDrives. They are 146.8GB Ultra2 U360 hard drives.

I originally tried to run the setup utility I found online under the Red Hat Enterprise software the SmartStart software is v7.70 this indicates the controller for the server isn't supported.

So I found under the Windows 2000 section a SmartStart 5.50 and ran this. This detects all hardware, however it shows the hard drives as 9.6 GB hard drives.

Is there a SmartStart version that I should be using so it recognizes everything correctly and if so where would I get it. According to the docs for this server it should support up to 146.8 GB drives see:

Thanks in Advance
