ProLiant Ml110 G2, W2K server, network driver

ProLiant ML110 G2, Windows 2000 Server.
I tried to install the driver from HP drivers site
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/22931.html

unfortunately, this driver does not install.
Either running the exe nor from system->device manager->ethernet->update driver


What driver to use with W2K server?
Is there any tricks to know about when installing this driver?

Do I have to enable/change something in BIOS to be able to use network?

for now everything is default - new machine out of box. Only I enabled Floppy to install SATA RAID controller driver with F6.

Re: ProLiant Ml110 G2, W2K server, network driver

thank you. I installed the support pack, but still the network driver is not installed. in system->device manager->ethernet I see yellow question (?) mark.

Is it possible that network card is disabled in BIOS by default? where?


When I try to install network driver, what is available in HP drivers web, I get error:
The software will not be installed on this system because the required hardware is not present in the system or the software/firmware doesn't apply to this system.

Raigo,
The ML110 uses an onboard NIC that is not supported with HP's standard NC series NIC drivers.

The ML110 uses an Intel 82541PI chipset.

Here is a link to the W2k3 driver.

If that doesn't work for you, you can try the driver from Intel:

thank you :)

this is the answer!
the Windows 2000 network driver on HP webstite doesn't work with w2k server. When I installed the driver from Intel site it works :)

The first driver you tried to use works in Windows 2000. You just have to have the nic it's for installed. The embedded nic in the server is not an NC series nic. The driver you were trying to install is for the NC series nic.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
