Re: ML 370 G2

I have tried booting with smartstart CD release 4.50 but the message: "This system is not supported by this version of SmartStart" is sent.

I also tried booting with W2000 CD ROM and then pressing F6 to install SCSI units, but the message: "Manufacturer-supplied hardware suppurt disk" is requested, How can I do to create this disk,

thanks!

Re: ML 370 G2

hi

mmm think if you are trying to install using smartstart it's because you have a smart array controller? this one Smart Array 5i?

well try these smartstart CDs?

version 5.5
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/22678.html

or 7.8
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/27210.html

according to this
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/management/smartstart/serversupportmatrix.pdf

both support the server

Re: ML 370 G2

hi Karlo,

The array controller is 5i, if I create a CD with smartstart version 7.8, can I install W200 correctly?
thanks!

Re: ML 370 G2

hi

Mariano if you want right in spanish?? are you from america right?

yes smartstart is a bootable CD when smartstart cd finishes loading (in the homepage) select maintenance server to deploy a RAID level

after that select deploy server and you're going to start to install W2000 using smartstart after that you're going to be asked to insert W2000 CD and to continue with Windows installation
