DL 585 G2 and Server 2008

Hi

Please help.I've got a DL 585G2 and installed Server 2008 x64 with SmartStart 8.0

The nics are not showing up in Windows. No nics is device manager. I have checked the BIOS, the nics are their.I have tested the nics and this is definately not a hardware problem.

Please help

hi Christiaan
after installing W2008 x64 bits did you install Proliant support pack 8.0 too?

hi

what do you mean by this? "I have tested the nics and this is definately not a hardware problem" how did you test them?

what happens if you try this file?

I mean installation is supported? try and let me know

the point there is not more drivers for W2008 the only thing is to try with driver from W2003 x64 bits, if that works we can try previous versions in can the one above can be installed

did you update firmware for the whole server?
