Proliant ML370 G3 Ubuntu Server disk error

Hi I've just got my hands on a second hand ML370 G3. I'm not using the SCSI drives but I've attached an IDE HDD. I'm trying to install the latest version of Ubuntu Server. I've installed it onto the HDD but when it comes to booting into it the server has no idea that the HD exists. When I put the Ubuntu boot disk in, i can select boot from 1st hard drive but I get a disk error.

I'm not at server just now so cant state the error number which isn't gonna help but i'm just wondering if anyone knows why this might be?

Also, when I boot up the server it tells me its setup to run Windows 2000/2003...?

Any help most appreciated!

You are not but the server might be trying to (and succeding). Have you changed the boot controller order and the boot device in the BIOS?

Re: Proliant ML370 G3 Ubuntu Server disk error

there SCSI bays are empty so shouldn't be able to succeed at that should it?

I've tried changing the BOOT order in BIOS but Hard Disk is not an option.. :S

I know it can use the HD because I choose it etc during the Ubuntu Installation. I've set the HD jumper as Master as well.

The server should be compatible with this OS yeah?

Officially the server runs SCO, Red Hat and United.

Where does it say that? Is it coming from the BIOS or is there a old windows partition on the hard disk and it is booting from that? Did you format the hard disk before installing Ubuntu?
