How to install Windows NT 4.0 OS in HP Proliant ML 330 G3?

Hi,

I have a problem on installating Windows NT 4.0 OS in HP Proliant ML 330 G3 with Smart Start CD release 6.40.

I have tried 2 ways:
1. Using Smart Start CD, but the choices are Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 only, there is no Windows NT 4.0 option.
2. Using Windows NT 4.0 Server CD and dump-out drivers from Smart Start CD. but can't continue on step after specified HDD SCSI (Adaptec ..., i forgot the name).

Anyone ever experience same problem? How do you overcome that ?

Thanks in advance.

If it is the ATA version, Windows NT 4.0 is not supported.

If it is the SCSI version, then it is supported. You then can hit F6 as early as you can during the NT 4.0 Setup and insert a driver diskette. The driver that you need is available on http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:cjfTyjKXTEAJ:h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/15644.html+&hl=en .

Andy,

You would need to press F6 as soon as the server starts booting off the CD; itâ s a black screen - Inspecting hardware, once you reach the blue screen part of the install, it might not take the drive
There’s your problem!!! This thing is set to EVIL!

FYI: I don't know if this will help or not. My tech told me that NT4 requires at least SP4 to detect SCSI. You may have an older NT4 Server CD, pre-SP4.

Good luck with it.
