WIN2K on DL145 no floppy need controller driver

How do I load the ultra320 controller drivers during setup when there's no floppy on this server? Will a USB floppy be recoginzed?
Windows2k setup will not load from CD, but give an error in D:/..../oeminstall.c

Hi John

DL145 also provides a USB port on the front. This design allows easily connect a USB drive or external CD-ROM, or diskette drive and install new or administer existing software. Notice that if the BIOS or firmware needs to be updated, then need to download software updates and drivers to the external USB device, unzip the update, and boot from that device.

Hope this Helps

Regards

I tried this and the USB key-drive containing the SCSI device drivers wasn't detected. Did anyone else use this method ?

Andy,

It worked for me, but it needs to be a floppy if I'm not mistaken (Microsoft code looks at A: and you cannot change it).

Its been so long I don't remember the details, but I used a USB floppy and had no problems.

Best of luck.

John
