Hi Lionel,

I am not sure what you are trying to achieve.

When do you prompted for the floppy? I mean what were you trying to do when you are prompted for the floppy?

Do you have the Compaq SmartStart CD. It will build the disks as a raid.
Good Luck.

Re: smart array configuration floppy ?

I have the smart start CD 5.50 ( which is appropriate for my old DL360) but Each time I chose in the system utilities array conf. it ask me for the configuration floppy. I can create 2 with the smart start CD but they are not bootable and the F10 utilities reboots when I insert my floppy
Any idea ??
thanks

Hi Lionel,

Don't know DL360 but have an old Proliant 5000 from '97 (EISA-stuff).
Long time ago, but I had also problems with SmartStartCD.

Suggesting you have to use floppies
because they contain are more actual software
than SmartStart CD 5.50 and newer SmartStart CDs will not boot.

First you have to create two ArrayConfig floppies to build an array accross your disks. The first one should be bootable. If not for any reason, insert an empty floppy into a Win9x-PC,type "sys a:" and copy the files. Make sure then to overwrite autoexec.bat and config.sys.

I remember that for my Smart/P2 I manually
had to copy the smartscsi.sys from the separate downloadable MSDOS-Driver to it.
(Don't ask why, the original one was not working).

After creating arrays, boot from first SystemConfig floppy, that hopefully detects that your disks are ready for creating the DiagnosticPartition.

Make your choice which items (ArrayConfig, Diagnostics ...) you want to copy into this partition.

After reboot, F10 should be possible.

HTH,
Björn
