I tried that driver and it gave me the same error message "setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer"
please if there are special settings in the BIOS or SCSI BIOS that may affect this please dont hold it back .

Re: Problem Installing W2k3 on ML 150 G2


Has anyone one solved this problem? I am having the same issue. I have tried the 32 bit W2003 Server driver supplied on the diag CD that came witht he server

ML150 G2
Adaptec U320 Scsi
72GB Hot Plug software

Using the Adaptec scsi utility during boot, I could format the disk, but W2003 server setup still does not see the disks

thanks

Hi,

I think this is the kit you need. It supports the 7901 and other Adaptec chipsets.

F6 to install the driver.

I hope this helps.

When you need to specify an OEM driver (like an HP driver), you must press F6 at the first Windows setup blue screen. You will get the option later, but if you don't hit it at the right time Windows will load one of its drivers into memory. Then even if you later specify the correct driver, it does not find any disks. If necessary create the 4 Windows 2003 diskettes and start the install by booting from disk 1 (the only one that is bootable). Do not put in the Windows 2003 CD until prompted.
