Yes is that controler.

I tried the link you post but same result, identify well, but when tries to load gives me the message lsi_sas.sys is missing, but that is not true because if i do the same with 2003 it works ok.

I start to think that is not possible to put de ML110 G4 wokking with XP Professional :-(

Re: Win XP PRO on ML110.

what are you using to load the driver?
an hp floppy drive? or usb floppy drive?

because you need that any other brand of floppy is not supported by HP

Re: Win XP PRO on ML110.

I am using a usb flopy drive not hp flopy drive.

But if is that the case is strange because install´s ok the windows 2003 server.

Could be that the problem? The usb flopy drive must be hp?

Re: Win XP PRO on ML110.

How did you finally get this to work? I'm trying to install XP pro on a Proliant DL140 with the same HP 8 Internal Port SAS Host Bus Adapter with Raid.

I downloaded the server 2003 driver you said to use from here: http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/27275.html

I made the XP cd image with nlite and added the lsi_sas.inf file to image but I'm still getting that "lsi_sas.sys could not be found" message when i boot with the new xp install cd. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Re: Win XP PRO on ML110.

Ok, I figured out that I needed the XP drivers from LSI (the raid controller board manufacturer) which can be downloaded here:

http://www.lsi.com/storage_home/products_home/host_bus_adapters/sas_hbas/lsisas3080xr/index.html?remote=1&locale=EN#User%20Guide

Particularly, the 32-bit symmpi driver for XP.

If anybody is struggling with this, that's what worked for me. I added the drivers to the xp image with nlite and made a bootable iso which i burned to cd. This was the only option available as I didn't have a usb floppy to work with and this rack server has no internal floppy drive. Best of luck to anybody else that runs into this issue! Hope this helps.
