Stopped installing

With the ML 115 comes a cd with drivers. The Win2003 section says to install them all. I have installed the Nvidia driver, the Matrox driver and the NIC-drivers and the lights out driver.

I am not intending to use a raid so I wanted to skip those, especially since the Nvidia driver mentions that for so called SW-functionality I should run a floppy disk - and the ML 115 doesnt even have a floppy drive.
My system seems to work allright apart from the fact that I am constantly nagged by a Found New Hardware wizard that wants to install an IDE driver. I do not understand this, where is this driver located, or is it part of the raid-drivers. Can anyone shed a light on this?

Many thanks

Re: Stopped installing

As far as I can see here there is only a regular ml 115 and a G5 version of it. I do not have the G5, and it is the i86 version of Windows 2003

Thanks

Re: Stopped installing

Hi,

did you installed the hp drivers or the NOS generic drivers?

also do you have any IDE device like optical drive?

I recommend BTW to flash the BIOS (check the above link)

Re: Stopped installing

Juan,

Thanks for the link to the softwarepage, I'll flash the bios soon.

What does NOS mean? I installed some drivers from the disk that came with the server.

There is a sata drive inside and a dvd-drive, all orginal. The latter is probably IDE, but functions allright.

Re: Stopped installing

NOS stands for Network Operating System.
and the IDE drive may be the one causing your issue, you can disable the notification and/or safely ignore it if everything is working fine however BIOS flash can solve it, also try to use the latest drivers from the link I sent
