Muslin:

What version of Windows are you using? That is... are you using a CD WITH or withOUT SP1 on it?

Does the server have a Smart Array controller in it?

Muslin,
Did you try use these drivers during windows 2003 install

I think you need to use

or

During the installation of the operating system on the server, insert the SCSI driver diskette you created when prompted to install the driver (Press "F6" during windows installation)

And I hope you don't use SmartArray controller, because SmartArray not supported on ML150

Mohd,

The ML150 G2 does not support SmartArray controllers, so you either have:
- 64-Bit/133MHz Single Channel Ultra320 SCSI HBA [374654-B21] - standard on all SCSI models
- or HP PL100 SCSI RAID Controller [355671-B21] - which is optional, so you have it if you specifically ordered it (e.g. to have RAID functionality)

Rgds.

Don't panic! [THGTTG]

Thanks Igor! I slove it.. Really appreciate your help..

Step I take:

1. download SCSI driver from link you give to me..

2. unzip and execute the file. Follow simple instruction.

3. create SCSI driver..

4. run windows 2003 setup and press F6 when the instruction appear at the bottom of the screen..

5. follow setup instruction again then my HDD already detected..

thanks Igor!
