Re: Error installing Windows server 2008: hpssbem.exe

ML110 G6 servers have issues installing windows server from HP media when you enable RAID mode on BIOS.

To make it work, do the following:

First you need to upgrade your BIOS to must current version.

Then you have two options:

1.- Download easy setup CD ver 2.30 and install Windows server ROK using it.

2.- Use an external DVDROM and provide RAID drivers via USB during installation.

You can say thanks by giving points.

Good luck!

Dears,

Having exactly the same error message buton a Proliant DL380G6 (also WINDOWS SERVER 2008 STANDARD FOR HP PROLIANT SERVERS (64-BIT))

Raid1 is activated through the Smartstart 4.8 CD though.

Any ideas?

TizianoS:
Glad to help,;)

EJO:
Try to download latest BIOS version, maybe you have an older one.
Smartstart 4.8 is pretty old, didn´t you mean 8.4?

Best regards.

-Raid 1 is actived by Bios (F8 during startup for configuring raid options), not by CD or utility.

-Bios firmware is the last.
