ML110 G3 SATA Raid install

I'm trying to install the OS on the system,
Ive set the SATA to Raid mode, Built the array.

Put the SATA Raid Driver onto a floppy

Now I'm trying to install windows 2003 server,
But I have a small problem

I Press F6 to select the device driver,
But The server has no floppy drive / or controller ?

How can I get round this ?

Thanks
Dave

Re: ML110 G3 SATA Raid install

Did you try using a HP SmartStart CD? When I did os install on blades I ran into same problem. I had originally used Partition Magic to get the drive ready. It worked but I went back and reinstalled with the SmartStart cd and nothing else is needed.

The ML110 does not come with the smart start CD

I ended up using the nLite software to create an ISO with the driver and write that to a CD
