Mass storage drivers and memory configuration

My knowledge of servers is zero, been working with PC's for a few years but only fixing and installations, so you can imagine my limited knowledge on this subject

I was looking for some advice. We have just purchased a HP Proliant ML330 server, and when we are attempting to install windows server 2008 it is asking for Mass storage drivers for the installation and I cannot find these anywhere.

Also I have 4x 2GB memory sticks, which I have installed in slots 1,3,5 and 7. But when the server boots it is saying incorrect configuration (or something around those lines)

Any help on the problems would definitely be appreciated.

Thanks
David

Re: Mass storage drivers and memory configuration

Thank you for the quick response, seems to have sorted that problem..really appreciate your help.

Do you mind me asking where did you find this information?

Anybody able to shed some light on where I could find/locate the 'Mass storage drivers' when installing windows server 2008 r2? I get the message 'no signed device drivers were found. make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers'

Thanks again Erdogan, when I work out how to give you the credits I will send them straight away.

Re: Mass storage drivers and memory configuration

I appreciate your quick responses and time taken to respond to my questions, been a stressful day.. I removed the memory from controller and all I can find printed on the controller is'Smart Array P410'.

I have found a link to what I believe are the drivers:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=uk&prodNameId=3883931&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=3883890&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4024

I downloaded them and copied to a USB drive, windows 2008 sees the INF file but the installation still cannot see any drives.

Re: Mass storage drivers and memory configuration

before, Press F9 during boot, RBSU > Boot controller order in the smart array P410 controller is first set.

after 2008 server R2 with CD boot.

try this cp010736.exe
