I found drivers these drivers http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3201178&swItem=MTX-30d2dc5c002c456ca38f640063&mode=4&idx=1 ant installation with F6 works..

But SS should work If HP delivers server with it :-(

So thanks for all

Hi Radek,
QQ, are you using SATA Hard Drives?

If you are using SATA, the SS CD was not designed for SATA.

SATA installation:
Enable the SATA RAID controller in the RBSU
Log into the controller during post
Create the RAID
*Create and ISO image using Nlite (download from nliteos.com) load the drivers into the package, burn it and boot from the ISO image...
That should be all you need...

Please note that the SS CD does not only work for installation but also has the Insight Diagnostics (offline) tool

Yes, I use SATA Hard Drives.

I have floppy drive so I'm able to install.

Installation was successfull.

It is a pity that HP does not support this.
