ML370 & Windows Server 2008 RC0

Hello,
I've got a problem with a ML370 G5: when I try to install Windows Server 2008 RC0 on the server I receive, during the installation, an error message that alters me that "There was an unexpected error and the system will be reboot". I received an identical message when I tried to install Windows Server Beta3, I managed to install the OS upgrading the Systems ROMPaq Firmware. Now the problem is back againg, but there isn't any new firmware versions or updates: what should I do?

Thank you,
Francesco

At the end of the installation process, when mini-setup starts generatins SID and inspecting hardware configuration installing drivers. Blue screen and BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER.

I'll try with the SmartStart.

Thank you for now.

Re: ML370 & Windows Server 2008 RC0

I have to install it exactly because it's a beta: this ml370 is my tests-server. By the way: I've just tried with the SmartStart and there isn't, of course, Windows Server 2008 in the options. Any other suggestions? :)

Thank you

Re: ML370 & Windows Server 2008 RC0

so

what about 2003 then?

in this pdf

h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00710606/c00710606.pdf

I can read
ML370 G5 is supported or has been tested
ProLiant ML370 G5*
System Rom:P57
Date: 06/13/06

but told us that you already have the latest one? right

what if you try updating all the components, not only ROM, using firmware CD

It worked! I've updated the iLO2 firmware and now the server is working! Thank you very much :)
