Hp Proliant ML150 G5 Windows Server 2003 Setup "no disks found"

Hi all,

I've bought a used ML150 G5 that I want to install Windows 2003 on.

The server already has a Win Server 2003 installation but the previous owner has forgotten the admin password so I can't login.

I've obtained a Windows Server 2003 installation disk and I've created a floppy with the cp010754 driver (Smart Array SAS/SATA Windows Driver).

In the BIOS I changed the hard disk controller to "RAID" before booting from the disk.

When I proceed with the installation after I succesfully(?) load the SAS driver from the floppy the installation stops stating that it can't find any disks.

I tried with the controller set to "IDE" too with the same result.

Anybody knows what I'm doing wrong?

There aren't any easy setup disks from this particular server.

I just want a clean installation to start with..

Thanks:)

I was trying to load the wrong driver.

In my case the driver needed was cp010974.exe.

The driver loaded fine with default BIOS settings and I was able to finish the 0S installation, now the server works okay.
