HPML 350 G3 Server can't install Windows2003

Hi,

I used smartstart 6.4 and other techniques in the form for fixing this, but couldn't get through. Array Configuration works fine whether it is Raid-0 or 1 or 5 asks for the O.S disk, copies performs setup and reboots, but after the startup it won't continue the installation.
With out using the Smartstart followed the normal setup by pressing the F9 and configuring, can selecet the partition format with NTFS undergoes the post setup and reboots. Still can't continue the installation.
It got Smart array 641 controller with latest firmware.
Problem started after wiping the Linux installation and moving it back to windows.

Any help appreciated.

Version 6.4 looks quite old - try a current version:

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

i will tel you one more thing.

I have more than 5 situation when problem was in unstable sonud of server restarts.
Problem was allways the same.
Power switch makes some electricity outgage and send signal to motherboard and after that server is restarting with very strange sound, like aspirator.
You don't have exactly situation but just to know.

Test HW, and try if you have condition to replace suspect parts.
