Hello,

when did you get this message? Due setup or later? Windows XP isn't supported on the DL360, but the raid-controller driver für W2K3 should work.

During the setup, when I finish the F6 of the raid controller loading.

The DL380 G5 doesn't support the XP OS ?

Hello,

correct. XP isn't supported on the DL360 G5. Take a look at the support-matrix:

What is the model of the raid controller?

Are you attempting to install Windows XP Professional x86 Edition or Windows XP Professional x64 Edition?

Dear Kedd Guyton,

The Raid Controller is Smart-array P400, Did you have assistance for me? Thanks

Re: Can I install the XP in the DL380 G5 Server?

There were some issues with the HP SAS Smart Array Controllers (including the SA-P400) when using Windows Server 2003 x86 edition. If I remember correctly, the solution was to install using a Service Pack 1 slipstreamed copy of the Windows Server 2003 x86 edition installation media or manually install a Microsoft Storport driver update. Since you don't yet have a function OS, option 2 is invalid.

The best thing I could recommend for Windows XP Professional x86 edition would be to try the latest driver copied to a floppy.

Wait a minute...the DL380 G5 has room for either a CD/DVD-ROM drive OR a floppy drive.

How are you booting from the installation CD AND inserting a floppy disk when instructed by the F6 prompt?

Please keep in mind that HP has not shaken all the bugs out of USB-attached floppy drives and optical drives as far as a Windows installation is concerned. Also, the iLO 2 virtual media is improving, but probably still won't do what you need.

Regardless, here are some things to try:

Use the latest Windows 2000 Scsiport driver:

Use a CD with Service Pack 2 slipstreamed into Windows XP Professional x86 edition. Maybe this will raise the Microsoft Scsiport driver version to a compatible level with the SA-P400 driver.

From what I can tell, Windows XP Professional x86 edition supports only Scsiport drivers--not Storport drivers.

Since Windows XP Professional x86 edition doesn't support Storport drivers (like the SA-P400's), have you considered installing Windows XP Professional x64 edition?

If not, you may need to troubleshoot getting your app to run on Windows Server 2003.

For clarification, Windows XP Professional x64 edition DOES support Storport.
