It seems that when loading 2K3 or even NT4 that the harddrives are not there.The Bios and SmartStart sees them but not the OS.

Re: ML370 G1 install of 2003 server

Make sure cables connected to Onboard PORT 2 if you use Integrated Smart array Controller
Or to 5300 if you are willing to try it
Run Erase Utility
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/17918.html

At POST look for F8 access and check if you can detect Drives. Create Array as desired.
If it works Install system Partition (SCU)
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/13227.html
Create diskettes and use them.
Ignore Smart Start CD for now.

Select O/S
Use F6 option and driver should be extracted to floppy
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/index.html

For 5300 select 5x 6x Driver
For ROC select Integrated Smart Array Controller
