Install Windows 2000 on Proliant 6400R

Hi everyone,

i´m trying now several days to install Windows 2000 Server on an Proliant 6400R.
I´ve bought the SmartStart CD v5.5, ran System Erase Utility and rebooted the server.
Then i did everything the assistant said.

The server has an SmartArray 3200 Controller with two Raid1.

The failure is the following:
After finding out that i have to press F5 when the installation asks for F6 to choose the Compaq HAL (Compaq Pro System or 100% Compatible), everything seems to work fine.
Until reboot.
When the server reboots after formatting an copying the files, the Windows boot screen appears, runs the the blue bar runs until the middle of the screen, and then a bluescreen wiht STOP 0x7B appears.

The joke is: When i connect the disks to the onboard SCSI Controller, i get the same effect.
And i have also tried a different Windows CD ....

A havo no answer anymore - but probably someone else .. ??


Thanks, Maik
