Rebuild Dl165 G6? How can I get the initial HP drivers/utilities loaded?

Easy Start CD does not apply to this one model (per HP Easy Start docs), SmartStart 'not supported model' (have tried 8.4, 8.6 and 8.7 just in case), and drivers cannot be loaded as .exe via cd-rom becasue the system does not read them (just results in failure to boot).

 

How can I get this machine rebuilt? Step 1 getting the HP drivers loaded and disk array set up seems next to impossible?

Hi,

 

Usually 100 series server are like Desktop systems.

Boot from the OS CD and install the OS, during installation it may ask you for Array Drivers, download the drivers before OS installation.

Greetings,

i would recommend that you first install the latest SPPoffline, here is the link:

this will ensure that your firmware is up todate,

 

following this, put into your OS CD,  and install your required OS.

once you are down, run the SPP online again, which will ensure that your drivers will be updated to the latest version
