SmartStart issues with ProLiant DL360 G1

I am hoping to install Windows Server 2003 on a ProLiant DL360 G1. I just downloaded the latest SmartStart CD that is listed as being compatible with this machine - 7.70, released in December 2006. However, when I put the CD in and boot, it tells me that this version of SmartStart is not compatible with this machine. Am I missing a step in doing this? Is it not possible to get Win2003 Server on this box?

Ok, there's a problem with the documentation for 7.7 then, which claims it is compatible with G1 servers.

Can I install Windows Server 2003 with 5.5?

hi Christopher

Smartstart 7.70 is not the correct for G1 Servers, it is 5.5 for G1 servers, check link
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/management/smartstart/serversuportmatric.pdf

well the supported windows for that server are:
Microsoft Windows NT® Server
Microsoft Windows 2000
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10530_na/10530_na.HTML

but you can try I know people who has W2003 on G1 server so you can give it a try, it can using Smartstart or installing windows manually (no smartstart 5.5)

Ok, thanks for the help everyone.

If anyone reads this that has installed Win 2003 Server on a DL360 G1, if you could give me some pointers on how you got it to work, I'd appreciate it.

Hi Christopher,

I found your posting while searching for
some info on DL320/360 G1 servers. There
is an Ebay item listing from a volume
seller of used DL360 G1 servers that indicates the servers are "fully tested with WIN 2003 Server". You might be interested in contacting the seller to see if you could
get the info you are looking for. The
Ebay Seller URL is:
http://stores.ebay.com/Garland-Computer
The Ebay item URL is:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/
eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd
=1&item=110179290002&ssPageName
=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=001 (no spaces)

This is in no way an endorsement of
Ebay or its sellers, just a possible
source for the info you are seeking.

By the way since you have access to
a DL360 G1, does it have built in
USB port(s)?? You can post your answer to
this thread or Email at celeyonn@yahoo.com
