Re: Installing Microsoft 2003 SBS on ML530

A) Do not use the SmartStart CD
B) Manually configure the system, creating the logical drives you need for the OS and data.
C) Have all the drives at the read for the OS, specailly the drive controller.
Then run the OS Install and see if it has the drive to access the drives, if not restart and manually give it the driver at start up.

I'm having the same problem, did that work for you?

Re: Installing Microsoft 2003 SBS on ML530

You have to make sure that in "BIOS" (if you do not have the config partition use SmartSatrt 5.5 the OS selection is to Windows 2000

Otherwise it does not work (hungs on Starting Windows 2xxx)
