Hi,

 

What is this Recovery DVD? Are you referring to "HP ProLiant ML110 G5 Easy Set-up CD".

 

Thank You!

Re: ML110 G5 iTB recovery

Sorry but: HP ProLiant ML110 G5 Easy Set-up CD is not a recovery dvd.

I mean:

HP ProLiant Storage Server with All-in-One Storage Manager System Recovery DVD Version 7.0

 

thank you

Re: ML110 G5 iTB recovery

if you know ML110 should know there is a hidden partition called "DON'T ERASE", but I had to replace all four disks.
Now obviously I do not have that partition,but the dvd recovery at startup tells me:
an invalid logical drive configuration has been detected...
and reboot the system.
Can you help me to recover the server with a different logical drive configuration?

thanks

Hi,

 

HP ProLiant ML110 G5 Storage Server - Installing the Storage Server.

 

By doing the below steps you will loose all the data on the partition/volume.  Proceed with caution.

 

Please follow the steps below to resolve the issue:
1. Reboot the server
2. Select F8 to enter the Smart Array Controller BIOS.
3. Delete all the Smart Array Created Partitions
4. Exit the Smart Array Controller BIOS (do not reboot the server)
5. Continue to boot with the Recovery DVD.
The recovery CD will then create new partitions and continue with the restore.

Also refer to this post.
