Hello,
Yes I know its a Different server;
But its the same concept.

but now I think u have a different issue.

Have you set the Boot controller Order ? Boot device order in BIOS ?
Is the HDD seen in BIOS ?
Is the Controller Detected in POST ?

Whats the Error when you try to boot from windows CD ?

James.

hello,

Your Hp Proliant DL180 have a missing one part device/hardware...the device is "smart array controller"..u should buy the device from HP,because the device is came separately from the server.

When the smart array controller installed,try start your server then u can see the HDD...

Hi dear adapod,
As per Quickspecification
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12754_div/12754_div.HTML

Following Storage Controllers are supported:
HP Embedded SATA RAID Controller on Non-Hot Plug SATA Models
HP 8 Internal Port SAS HBA with RAID 0,1 on Hot Plug SAS/SATA Models
HP Smart Array E200 Controller
HP Smart Array P800 Controller
HP SC11Xe Host Bus Adapter
HP SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter

As per the above discussion it seems pklam is looking for the following driver:
HP Embedded SATA RAID Controller Driver for Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/26742.html

Hi pklam,
Please if it can help u.
If correct driver is in use & all the spare has been replaced & still the issue is persisting then you can escalate it with hp support & demand for a new working unit.

Hi pklam,
please refer to the above quickspecification & very the correct h/w combination.
It is HP Embedded SATA RAID Controller on Non-Hot Plug SATA Models
i.e. Only Use Non-Hot Plug SATA HDD with onboard controller.

Hope that would help
