Re: Problem installing windows 2000 server

Hello Carlos,
Yes you can do it. Start your server with Smart Start CD 5.50 version if possible. Run system erase(assuming you will be starting from scratch). Choose the assisted method of installation. If you have any problems let me know.

Re: Problem installing windows 2000 server

Hello Carlos,
You should contact a local reseller or order via Web. Here is the link:

The best way would be to call your local support team from HP and specify that you need 5.50 version.

Re: Problem installing windows 2000 server

Hello Carlos,
Unfortunately, you wont be able to install W2K with SmartStart 4.5. I believe the support for W2K started with 4.8 version onwards. If you dont intend to set up RAID then you can do the basic setup with System configuration via SP19619 and then start with W2K CD. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Re: Problem installing windows 2000 server

Hello Carlos,
That means your diskette is messed up and you have to recreate the diskette. Just recreate the diskette and cold boot your system with disk one and then follow the on screen instructions.
