HP SE1102 Server Windows Installation

Hi,

 

I have recently purchased a HP SE1102 server from ebay which is more than enough for what we need the use for.

The problem i am stuck with is installing windows. I have managed to create a RAID logical drive in the setup and BIOS reports it has 1 logical drive which is great.

I can then get my Windows Server 2012 installation to start booting from DVD and can get to the installation part where i need to specify the drive. At this point all i see is 4x 500GB drives rather than 1 logical RAID drive which i was expecting to see.

I have tried loading a HP driver for the serial ATA card and this seems to install but still i can only see 4 driver.

 

What am i missing? 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Paul

Hi,

 

SE1102 is similar to a DL180 G5 or G6 server and it does not support Windows Server 2012.

Have you tried installing any older version of Windows Server on this server?

 

Thank You!

Hi,

 

Thanks for your reply.

I haven't tried any version apart from 2012.

I have read on another forum or post that if we install a hardware raid controller in this machine we could get around it. Would this work?

If so do you know the part number or model of the raid card needed?

 

Thanks
