Installing Windows Server 2000 on DL 160 G5 SC40Ge controller

Hi Guys,

I just bought 3 new DL 160 G5 rack servers for a client, problem is he wants to add them to existing servers running Windows Server 2000 and that is the license he has. Servers did not ship with Windows 2000 drivers and trying to install Windows 2000 gives a blue screen when it gets to starting windows. Has anybody resolved this problem or any ideas where I can get the drivers

can you reboot your server and reboot ti and check which controller name you got if it is something like 1068E or 1064E, ...

Guys thank you for your answers.

No smart start CD was shipped with the servers, though I am sure that even with a smart start CD drivers for 2000 will not be included.

I have not tried any drivers as yet since I have not found any drivers mentioned specifically for windows 2000 server. Unless you are saying or you think these windows 2003 drivers might work with windows 2000.

I wanted to disable the controller so that I can install with native drivers but I have not been able to achieve that too. That way I don't need a floppy drive to install the drivers.

hi

yes that's what I meant
I see there are 3 version and only the 2 last ones support SC40Ge maybe W2000 could load those

of course Smartstart CD does not work on 100 Series servers

if you don't have a usb floppy you can use nlite http://www.nliteos.com/nlite.html

also you can search at forum too about nlite
