Proliant ML-150 G3 and Win2K3

I think I must be having a bad day! I am trying to install Windows Server 2003 R2 on a new ML-150 G3. As this server doesn't have a floppy disk drive and the drivers for the SAS adapter aren't on the Win2k3 CD any ideas how I can get the drivers installed? I have exploded the driver from the diags cd that came with the server but cannot work out how to install them when I can't install a floppy disk drive? HELP

Hi Chris!

Not such a bad day if got a USB floppy, and better USB 2 floppy drive.
This will be the only way to get around this.

Regards,

Jaime.

Thanks for the info - I had come to the same conclusion myself and fortunately we have such a device. I think this needs to be pointed out to resllers before they sell the server otherwise they will be in the same situation as me.

Thanks again.

Hi Chris,

Preferably use a 1.44 MB USB Diskette Drive (Option Kit DC361B), we have had many issues which were resolved with this particular floppy disk drive.

All the Best !!!
