How to use the 'Drive Key Boot Utility' to insert driver during W2k3 SBS installation

Hi guys,

i've never worked with the drive key boot utility or windows boot utility.

dl from here: http://search.hp.com/query.html?lang=en&submit.x=0&submit.y=0&qt=drive+key&la=en&cc=us

i'm not able to generate a simulated A:\ Drive which is necessary to install Win2003 SBS on a ML310 G3.

When i choos the option to generate a Floppy, the tool is asking me about an image File?

What is needed to do?

cheers Mike

Michael, i don't think you would be able to do it using Drive Key Boot utility. It's not meant to emulate drive A:, it just allows you to boot from USB device. You can use DKBU to prepare USB drive, so you can flash the firmware of the server, or boot from a diskette image.
In your case I'd suggest to prepare slipstreamed installation CD with drivers using nlite utility:

Yep, either slipstreamed CD, or external USB floppy.
