Help, Server Newbie, Need Scsi Array Driver

Hello, im new to servers and have just bought myself a HP Proliant ML330 G3 Server Tower, it has x2 36gb scsi drives on the SCSI Raid card which is in a pci slot on the mobo. I have setup the 2 drives for RAID0 which i want to use. i now logically have a 68.9gb Drive. Im now tring to install Windows 2003 Enterprise Server. it gets into the setup and then says no hard drives found.... so i rebooted setup and pressed F6 for a Scsi raid card drive.... i don't know what driver to use or what to do.. any help would be apericated

Hi Cameron!

You need to boot form Smart Start CD (included in server shipment). It will help you to install OS with providing correct drivers of hardware "automatically" (install ProLiant Support Pack)

Post problems if appear

Find you card model and use with F6 driver or check Software - CD for latest SS CD.
