HP ML110 G4 Server RAID/SATA Driver

Hi All

I working on a HP ML110 G4 Server - P/N 432535-425

I am trying to install a Windows XP PRO, but I can’t find a SATA/RAID driver that works.

THINGS I HAVE DONE:

- Prepared a Raid 1 (mirror) on the machine.

- I tried an installation with a USB floppy, but in the driver selection after hitting “F6”, I get an error when I am trying to install the driver from the floppy.
---------------------
“File txtsetup.oem caused an unexpected error (32768) at line 1747 in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup\oemdisk.c. – Press any key to continue”.
---------------------
This error persists whether I am using a different driver from HP download site or if I am trying to install the machine with a Windows Server 2003.


- I have also made a bootable Windows XP PRO CD-ROM, with the SATA/RAID drivers, and I can see during the installation that the drivers are loaded, but I still get the error,
---------------------
“that the installation could not find any disk”.
---------------------

So does any one in here have any suggestion to what I could try to make this server run with a Windows XP Pro?

Yes I know

But as I wrote, I also tried with a Windows Server 2003, and I still get the same error.

Re: HP ML110 G4 Server RAID/SATA Driver

i didnt see earlier that you had also problems with the 2003 server

if you have the intel card in your server go here
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/25493.html
and download the driver

read the instructions in this page and try again
another option:
try another usb floppy in the previous ML110G3 server there were some nec and other 3rd party usb floppies which didnt load the driver also

hope it will help you

Re: HP ML110 G4 Server RAID/SATA Driver

Ok thanks I will try that.

I have just formatted a USB stick, so it works as a â floppy driveâ , and it seems to work just fine. After hitting â F6â I can now select the driver from the USB stick, but when the installation presents an overview over witch disks, I have at my disposal to apply the installation on, I only can see the USB stick with 62 mb. capacity â strange?

Any suggestion to what I am doing wrong, since I only can see the USB stick in the disk selection?

Re: HP ML110 G4 Server RAID/SATA Driver

MiloMann,

This is almost certainly a driver issue. Retrieve the spare number (SPN) from your controller and search the HP support site for drivers for that particular part number. If the driver is incorrect, it will not load when Windows wants to install and will appear to be a floppy drive access problem. That is not the case in most instances.

Check your driver for your controller. I had the wrong one, and everything worked once I loaded the correct controller driver courtesy of HP support.

Good Luck!

You were right, it was a driver problem.

But now I have a new problem :-)

- I am booting on the CD-ROM with the USB stick attached to one of the USB ports.
- Hitting F6 in the windows installation
- Selecting the SATA RAID (82801GR ICH7R) from the USB Stick
- Selecting a disk to install on, and creating a partition.
- Formatting the disk with NTFS

After the installation is done formatting, and is starting to copy files, it wants the SATA/RAID driver again from floppy/USB driver. But the USB drive is not responding.

Is the USB disabled at this point in the installation?

I have found a solution, after I found the right driver.

I have followed the guide from this website, and it worked.
