DL140 G2:can I install W2K server? and if so how?

The ProLiant Server Support Matrix says that W2K server is supported on the DL140 G2. So how the hell do I get it installed? Help please.

I don't understand. What's preventing you from doing it? Aren't there drivers available on the cd for this?
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Does your DL140 have a CD-ROM? I believe the Default Configuration has no CD-ROM.

If you have a CD and a Floppy and just the standard IDE controller, you should be able to just boot up the server with your WIndows CD and install like you would on a PC.

Can you give us more detail as to what your having a problem with?

Thanks for responding Steven and Terry. My problems arise from the HP ProLiant DL140 G2 not having a floppy or an IDE interface that can handle a floppy. It has SATA disks. It has USB interfaces.

*BUT* Windows 2000 does not have native support for USB interfaces or SATA disks. So I don't see how I can get the drivers from the CD during the installation using the F6 key.

Are you trying Windows 2000 WITH SP3 or SP4? or just a standard Win2k with no SP integrated?


If you so choose, you can integrate the proper components into your Windows Media and make a custom CD. I have a web link somewhere for it. Pretty good tutorial.
