Problem with RAID controller on Proliant DL320 G3

I was installing OS Windows server 2000 with SP3 on Proliant DL320 G3. With "HP Drive Key Boot Utility" I make USB key with RAID controller drivers. Installation progress I stroke F6 and specified my RAID controller (82801 FR SATA), but installation didn`t find that controller.

Dear Maxim,

HP Drive key boot utility is an embedded linux image, which can boot from the USB key. There is a component folder on the USB drive, after you prepare it with the utility. You need to copy the firmware images (the files, with .scexe extension) into that folder. You can download them from www.hp.com.
After you copy all of firmwares, which you want, just plug the key into the server, power it on, and boot from the USB key.
The you can upgrade firmwares on your server.
This USB key works on most of the Proliant servers, so usfull tool.

In your case, you need a floppy drive for your server, because the Windows install CD accept the drivers only from floppy drive at this point.

Attila
