Re: system error or no system disk

Hi.

How are you installing the operating system? Are you using the smartstart cd when deploying or straight of the Windows boot system?

If you are trying to boot straight of the windows CD it doesn't see any harddrives because the windows CD doesn't have any drivers for HP's Raidcontrollers. Use Smartstart to configure the raid and to start the installation.
