Hyper-V (W2k8) and StartSmart Unable to find Disks

I am runing a DL320 G5p server and haven't had any problem until now. I am using the "hot swap" for Sata Embedded Raid controller with 2x 250gb harddrives in Raid 1.

When trying to install Hyper-V it will not find the harddrives. Also when starting from Startsmart it says "0 gb bootable drives".

Funny is that when booting from Windows 2003 installation disk it finds the logical partition as intended.

Is there any specific driver I am supposed to install with 2008? If so which one? I have tried the ones on StartSmart but it doesn't seem to work.

Very thankful for help.

Yours,
Hampus

Are you using SmartStart 8.15(B)?

8.0 since it's the one I got when we purchased the server. If 8.15 helps, is it possible to download? Couldn't find it here on the website.

Best regards,

hi

I don't get which controller you have saying "I am using the "hot swap" for Sata Embedded Raid"


the point is smartstart only support smart array controllers like e200, p400, and so on

that's why is not working
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Karlo,
The DL320 G5P servers have the integrated Intel 82801IR SATA (RAID 0/1) controller.
