DL320G5p Embedded SATA RAID, Windows Server 2003 R2

Hello
I am trying to install Windows 2003 Server R2 to HP Proliant DL320G5p server. I want to use embeded SATA RAID controller for mirroring.
I found forum http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1220275871730+28353475&threadId=968624 and sollution described there but I can not find any HDD during installation:-(

- installing using SmartStart CD did not find any configurable HDD - it is described in link above

- when using floppy with drivers from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3201178&swItem=MTX-9553913a25fe499aa09e22cfe2&prodNameId=3288095&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1 installation can find any HDD only when SATA RAID controller is disabled in RBSU. When I enable it, installatin did not find HDD

Where is mistake? Have I bad driver? Where I can find correct one?
Thank you

hi

yes smartstart does not support Embedded SATA controllers...

so you need to use a USB floppy driver or use nlite ( http://www.nliteos.com/nlite.html )

use this driver by the way

HP Embedded G5 SATA RAID Controller Driver for Windows Server 2003 for G5s

Karlo, it works. Thank you
It is little bit strange to use driver from another server but finally it is logical:-)
