How to configure DL120 G5

Hi,

I've just bought a DL120 G5 (P/N: 533984-421).

I've been used to work with smartstart, but there isn't any smartstart available for it as far as I know. The only CD that comes with the package is diagnostic and drivers CD.

My question is: where to start from?

There is no RAID configuration utility, so what should I do to install Win 2003 R2 on it? Install it on the first disk, load drivers from the drivers CD and there I'll find the software to enable RAID1?

Can you give me a hint, or point to some useful documents?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Ciao

guess you want raid
disable raid in bios install os on 1 disk only
if windows based go in dev manager add raid controller and driver now , now on reboot go into bios enable raid , all done
plan b
or you can slipstream windows with driver using nlite , many guides out there for this..
