DL 385 Dual Core 64-bit Windows Server 2003 installation problems

Hi guys,

whenever I try to install the 64-bit x86 based version, the server stops responding at 34% when discovering devices while installation.

Any ideas ? Would be great...

thanks...

Hi Jocham!

At first, what version of SmartStart do you use?

I use the latest one, 7.30, but the 64-bit Edition does not appear under the automated installation. Drivers are provided on the cd. It seems that the server stops responding when trying to install a device.

Strange... SmartStart 7.30 release notes show that Win2k3 x64 is fully supported. Can you try point to Win2k3 icon when smartstart installation startup?

Jocham,
On our Dualcore 585 we found we had to perform a traditional windows install (x64 edition) minus smart start. Once the OS was up and running we applied PSP 7.3 and everything was good to go.

Here is the HP doc on the step by step for this:
