OS Problems

I have a DL580 I'm trying to need to put NT Workstation on it becausae of certain applications that need NT. The NT setup disk can not find the hard drive. I tried to format the hard drive in both NTSF and Fat, and I get the same error message. Where do I go from here??

Re: OS Problems

I just ran smart start, then tried to load NT workstation from the 3 disks. Pressed S to add my own storage drivers. (Smart Array 42xx / 43xx Controller) it was the only one that worked and I tried them all.

After putting the 3rd disk in the system could not find the CD Rom. When I boot from the CD rom, it still can't find the hard drive.

I am totally lost, does this make sense to anyone.

Thanks

Re: OS Problems

Mkae sure you have the drivers for your disk controller on diskette. Boot NT Workstation from the CD, AS SOON AS YOU SEE THE BLUE SCREEN - HIT F6, it should prompt you for additional drivers, load the drivers for your controller, and then continue as normal.
