Pb to install win2000 with raid 1 wit HP Server DL 140 G3

Hi,

I have a problem, i can't install win2000.
I enabled the sata raid 1 in the bios and i installed win2003(i have copied the storage driver in the boot cd win2003)and it's ok.
But when i copy the storage driver controller(http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/26742.html) in the boot cd win2000 and i restart to install it, it give me a message error that it's not possible to start the installation of win2000.
Please help me . It is the good driver? It's ok in win 2003 not in win 2000.

Hello Hassani,

"If" you are using the correct drivers, You may using a 3rd party software nLITE & integrate this drivers to the OS; & create a bootable CD.

Refer:

In Bios settings you must have several settings, as writeback cach enabled and bootable . Placed in a bottom of screen.

Hi,

Have you tried alternative versions of the driver kit? Here are the previous versions which may work.

Re: Pb to install win2000 with raid 1 wit HP Server DL 140 G3

Hi,

in BIOS under Advanced-Advanced Chipset Control -> Serial ATA->SATA controller mode
Compatible/Enhanced"? Try changing the setting to the other one.

If this don't help try Advanced-advanced processor options- hyperthreading to disable.
There are sometimes issues with installing OS with Hyperthreading enabled.

If possible try different w2k CD.
