Proliant ML310 G2 + SmartStart 7.4 problem

I have this problem with ML310 + RAID1 (2xSATA). Can you help me?

SmartStart doesn't support SATA controllers.
You need to install OS without SmartStart CD.

SmartStart 7.40 does support SATA. I just doesn't support SATA RAID. There is a BIOS setting to turn on and off SATA RAID.

Other guys already pointed out the problem, you need to do a standalone installation, and press F6 at initial boot. You will need the SATA raid driver from here (2003):

Extract it to a floppy.
