Proliant DL165 G5 Windows 2003 Server installation

Hello

We use several HL Proliant DL360.
We are used to install first SmartStart CD to configure hard drives with RAID configuration.
Then we can install Windows 2003 Server.

But we recently bought a Proliant DL165 G5.
SmartStart is not supported with this hardware. So hard drives are not recognized and we cannot install the Operating System.

Is someone can help us and tell me what we have to do?

Thanks a lot

I had the answer for those who are interested:

- Copy the driver of the raid controller card on a floppy disk.
- Start the server and boot on the W2003 server install CD
- Press F6 key when there is the blue screen with the message on the bottom "Press F6 to install specific devices"
- Press "S" key when the installation program ask it (in order to install specific devices)
- Select the right driver from the floppy drive
- Continue the Windows 2003 Server installation

Hope it could help
