Unable to clean install Windows Server 2008 R2 on HP DL120 G5

Hi,

I've spent the last few days trying to solve the problem of not being able to find the hard disk when installing windows server 2008 r2 on an old server. I would like to install a Domain Controller into this server.

The error was: No drives were found, click Load Driver.

Then I tried to do drive formatting and it was successfully completed. But still getting same error of No drives found. I'm not sure if it has something to do with RAID or anything else. I'm not familiar with RAID.

Please help.

Re: Unable to clean install Windows Server 2008 R2 on HP DL120 G5

It entirely depends on what controller is in your system. If all you have is the ntegrated Intel® 82801IR Serial ATA Host Controller with RAID 0/1 support, you will need a special driver for RAID support. The embedded controller is software driven RAID.  If you have one of the optional Smart Array controllers, the driver should be in Windows server.  I did see a note on this system that Server 2008R2 is only supported with Service Pack 1
