Smart-2/SL: Win2000 installation


I'm having the following problem when I try to install W2k Server on a raid5-array (already created) attached to the Smart2/SL:

When booting from the CD, no controller is found. When I chose to install a driver provided by Compaq by pressing "F6" at the begin of the installation, I'm told that the "textsetup.oem" could not be found. That's right - it is not on the floppy disk(s) I created. Both driver versions Compaq offers for download (cp001070 and cp002573) do not include that file.

Firmware version is 4.50.

Am I the only one having this problem?

Btw: I'm not using that card in a Compaq server - is there a way to configure arrays on the controller without having an OS installed?

Re: Smart-2/SL: Win2000 installation

Hi Steffen,
Use the generic driver that comes with Windows 2000 CD. Then update the driver after installation of Windows 2000 is complete and before rebooting. You can copy txtsetup.oem from the NT4.0 driver file onto the w2k driver diskette.
Hope this will help.
