ML350 G3 Smartstart

I've built two ML350 G3 servers recently using the smartstart 6.1 CD and a Windows 2000 Server CD. However now I come to rebuild them by booting from the Smartstart CD it says it cannot find a bootable drive - the systems both have Raid5 using a 641 smart array controler - the CD gives the same error in both. When booted normally they both go into Windows 2000 server quite happily Any suggestions

Paul:

Smart Start 6.10 does not have support for the 641 or any 6 series controller. You need to use SmartStart version 6.40 or later.

Paul,

You can also go get a new copy of smartstart 7.1.

It is available on our website now.

HP just released this gem for us to read:

So... download the 7.1x ROM Update CD and burn yourself an ISO. Keep it handy from now on out...
