DL385 G2 linux AS4 up3 x86 not detecting smart array

Try using linux AS4 up3 installing on DL385G2, got message saying no hard disk found. Array controller is p400. did try using the driver diskette file from hp website, put the DD file in USB disk using hp USB drive boot utility; start up the installation using: linux dd or linux updates dd; can find the usb disk but say no appropriate device. version of linux is x38 version not AMD64. anyone know the workaround on this without using update4?

Thanks

I'm having the same issue. The issue happens both on update 2, update 3.

I used USB floppy to load driver, and load of driver itself is working fine, but still RHEL U4 u2/3 can't proceed installation due to the inability to find hard drives.

Maybe it could be that the driver image loaded on the web is not valid. It should be working for the driver description includes P400 smart array controller and RHEL 4 U1 ~ U4.

The Driver is available on the below link:

The Steps to create and install the Diskette are also mentioned and should be followed.
