Re: HELP ME: I must to install Windows XP on a HP ML350 G5

So what 's the problem? These servers are not meant for windows XP but I have heard the WinXP installs OK on some servers. You will not find all the XP drivers you need for this server HW so you shoult try the 32bit w2000 and w2003 drivers.

During the windowsXP install you will see on the bottom the message . This is where you press F^. But you must have the drivers available on another media (floppy, USB another CD) to insert it when asked.

Search google for "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver" and see what other people have done. You need to find the ML350 raid driver, I don't know if it exists for WinXp, you may want to try Win2000 or win2003 32bit drivers. There is no guarantee that it will work.

Like TTR said. Windows XP will probably not work on that machine. Try the drivers for win2k or win2k3.

Drivers can be found here:

That's another "feature" of windows XP! I don't have a windowsXP installation in front of me so I can't tell if you can change the A: drive or that's how WinXp is and there is nothing else you can do.

The ML350 G5 has the E200 raid controller card so it is NOT 1 or 2. So you should try the #3 driver.
