HP Proliant ML110

Hi all,

HP Proliant ML110 G5

I am trying to install Server 2003, I put in the Proliant easy setup disk which came with my server.

I place the disk in, and the setup cd starts and goes into the HP setup. There is an option to deploy server but it won't go any further.

The error which appears is:

"the primary controller configured in your system is not supported by this version of hp proliant easy set-up cd"

If I try an configure the raid within the hp setup, it says "acu did not detect any supported controllers"

I get the same error even if I configure the raid first in the bios, or leave it unconfigured.

Someone mentioned Only "Smart Array Controllers" are seen by the ACU; ACU turns blind to SATA controllers.
Which sounds like my situation.

How can I get around this?

I'm having exactly the same problem on my ML110 G5. No matter what I do in the BIOS/RBSU, I cannot get the easy set-up to detect the hard disc. I get the same error message.

I can't see anything in the document linked that is relevant to this.

I want to install SBS 2003 R2, but I don't get that far.

Any ideas before I forget the easy setup and install it manually...

I hope I'm doing the right thing writing in this old discussion. I recovered a old HP Proliant ML110 G5 server and I'm having the same issue. How can I resolve it? Furthermore the link posted above is not working anymore.
