ML115 2000 server & raid 5 trouble

I am trying to install Windows 2000 server on my ML115. I have set up the nVidia raid software for Raid 5 using 4 160 gb drives. It claims to have created it, but when trying to install Windows 2000 Server, it is never able to find any hard drives to install to. I have tried several 2k3 drivers to no avail. Has anyone found a drive that will work for Win 2k server?

Thanks!

No, Windows 2000 Server is not supported in ML115 servers & drivers for Windows 2003 will not work !!

Hello,

Try this - nForce4 AMD Edition - Windows XP/2000 (32-Bit):
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_nf4_winxp32_amd_6.70.html

- Legacy PATA RAID driver version 5.52
- SATA RAID driver version 5.52 (WHQL)
- RAIDTOOL application version 5.52

Thanks

Ty 007,

I really thought this was going to work but none of the drivers work with Windows 2000 setup. It just cant seem to find any hard disks installed...

Download the NVIDIA driver from hp.com.

Create the driver diskette by expanding all of the files onto a floppy.

modify the TXTSETUP.OEM and add the "usbstor" entries at the bottom of both sections below:

[HardwareIds.scsi.RAIDCLASS]
id = "SCSI\NVIDIA__Raid_Disk________","nvrd32"
id = "SCSI\__NVIDIA_______Raid_Disk","nvrd32"

This should be in the generic file provided with the driver, but for some reason it is not. It is a pretty simple fix.
This is all they need to add to the driver TXTSETUP.OEM...
id = "USB\VID_03F0&PID_2001", "usbstor" #--HP
id = "USB\VID_054C&PID_002C", "usbstor" #--Sony
id = "USB\VID_057B&PID_0001", "usbstor" #--Y-E Data
id = "USB\VID_0409&PID_0040", "usbstor" #--NEC
id = "USB\VID_0424&PID_0FDC", "usbstor" #--SMSC
id = "USB\VID_08BD&PID_1100", "usbstor" #--Iomega
id = "USB\VID_055D&PID_2020", "usbstor" #--Samsung
