Re: DL 360 installation help

Hi!
the installation is quite simple:
1) boot from smartstart (choose right platform: if are going to install windows 2003 x86-32 use x32-32 smartstart)
2) after booting choose Array Configuration Utility (ACU) and make a raid
3) proceed with installation and choose the right version of windows (i mean, if you're going to unstall windows 2003 R2, choose the exact version in the installation list)
4) wait until the installer tells asks you for windows installation media

Actually, that's all.

regards,
Philipp.

Not absolutely sure but i think, it means that you have bought Windows from HP, not directly from Microsoft. Don't pay attention to this, just choose another option with appropriate OS, i.e. "Windows 2003 Server Standard" or "Windows 2003 Server Enterprise"

If you want to install OS (windows, in your case) after RAID configuration, you don't need to restart. But you can do it - if you want to do it for other reasons.
