Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

Hi.
I tested DL180G5 with Insight Diags, it reported on errors. Also then I created raid using embedded sata raid controller it created with no error and report status OPTIMAL (raid 1, two hdd)
But:
1. when I try to install w2003 x64 (also 32), I have BSOD, reporting possible hard disk problem. I used drivers 1.4.17010.0 and 1.4.17015.0 with the same result.
2. when I deleted the RAID and tried to install on HDD, I have the same result.
3. I`ve read a lot of posts on this forum and found that in http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447626+1209453495359+28353475&threadId=1216630
recommended version 1.4.17015.0 also for W2008 x64 and tried to install w2008 x64, but w2008 not found drivers on floppy.
4. after creatind-deleting RAID my hdd moving from Primary Master -HDD1/Secondary Master -HDD2 to Third Master -HDD1/Forth Master -HDD2. It is really strange.

may be somebody could help?

hi

yes your using the correct ones - dl320 g5p shares same controller chipset as dl180 g5

just in case
check this drivers

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

Of course there are only one .sys and two .inf files in \bootdisk dir, but when I try to select additional driver (F6, S), I see list of drivers (almost 10 items).
But the biggest problem that all this drivers do not fit to win2003 x64 Standard I want to intalled.

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

at this moment I installed win2008 x64 Enterprise without configuring embedded RAID, this is the only successfull result.
it seems to me that HP&MS jointly push ahead w2k8.

hi

I don't want to add info to the other thread you opened so I am going to continue here

previously you mentioned that when the driver I linked you got a bunch of options maybe something like this

* Intel® 6300ESB SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801ER SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801FR SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801GR/GH SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801GR/GH SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801GHM SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® ESB2 SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® ESB2 SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801R/DO/DH SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801R/DO/DH SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801HBM SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801HEM SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801HEM SATA AHCI Controller
* Intel® 82801IR/IO SATA RAID Controller
* Intel® 82801IR/IO SATA AHCI Controller
-----------------------------------------------------------------

if so the ones you have to try are the last 2

----------
I would say
1.4.17010.0 is for W2003 x64 the ..15 so for w2008

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

hi Karlo, thank you for reply.

I tried once again 1.4.17010.0(cp008695.exe) to install w2003 x64 and again had BSOD (I use usb floppy to load driver, me be it is the problem?)

I tried 1.4.17015.0(cp008698.exe) to install RAID inside w2008 x64, installed on single disk, but system report that "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

drivers suggested by you do not compatible to win2003 x64 (at least so reported my win2003 sp2 r2 Stantard when I try to load drivers from usb floppy after F6)

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

hi

well I saw a thread where the only workaround is:

disable both SATA in BIOS and use either USB CDROM - or virtual media (ilo)

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

hey SergueiF

I just want to be sure of something I've seen this issue lately and I am thinking if new System ROM gupates are causing this issue
like ML110 G5 that using latest System ROM (in march) was causing ORCA stop on POST

so what if you try this old system ROM

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3580698&prodNameId=3580699&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-60ee698d9f3e4b6fba0aa6ab26&mode=3

and try OS installation again before USB CDROM - or virtual media option

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

unfortunately, I want to use EMBEDDED RAID, so I could not disable all SATA and follow your instructions

Re: Problem with DL180G5 storage system (embedded raid, hdd)

after booting from usb cd-rom, I broke through BSOD.

but the driver problem still present - windows do not see media to install (I created RAID 1 on my 2 NDDs)
