proliant drive array configuration

i have a proliant 1600, with a SMART-2SL drive array controller.
i used the system erase utility, and i have configured the bios, but i cannot configure the array contoller as it needs windows, and i cant install windows untill i have configured the array controller.

help?

Re: proliant drive array configuration

Do you use SmartStart CD?
If yes - there is Array configuration utility on SmartStart CD. Using ACU you configure array before OS installation.
You can download SmartStart 5.50 CD here:
