Proliant 1850r bad hdd

Hi,

I have a bad disk in a RAID array on a Proliant 1850r. The controller card is the Smart Array 221. Is there a silent keystroke I can use to access the ROM based util's on the card? I am not presented with during POST and do need to try to initialize the bad drive to begin post-mordum on the box. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Proliant 1850r bad hdd

maybe you can try using the smartstart CD 5.5
and the array configuration utility
