Proliant DL145 G2 (Opteron 64) and Windows 2003 R2 x64

We are a volume licensed MS Windows user who recently purchased for BL145 G2s. I was trying to install Windows 2003 STD R2 x64 and had no problems except that none of the network drivers would install. Each time I try to install a driver from the support site I get a message "the image is valid but for a machine type different than the current machine".

Windows 2003 x64 is supported for the DL145 G2 but I cannot find drivers specific for 64 bit Windows and/or Release 2. Help would be appreciated.

Hi Sean:

- which drivers did you try and which link did you use.

- Have you tried to update the driver manually; ie extract the softpaq and from device manager try to update it manually.

That didn't seem to work the first time, but I rebooted and then tried re-installing the driver from Device Manager and it worked, this time.

I'm still seeing that a driver for an Interrupt Controller is missing. Is there a corresponding driver install for this?

Thanks.

Hi Sean:

possible chipset driver missing; system board hardware (ie; usb controller etc.)

try using the
HP ProLiant DL145 G2 Software Support CD
version 3.0 (6 Apr 06)
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/23997.html

- it should have a chipset support pack that you can run.

- if not let me know which one has the yellow mark or listed as unknown under device manager and I will try to get it for you. Possible you can also get it from AMD website. http://cdrom.amd.com/21860/updates/opteron_drivers/english/amdapic64.exe (64-bit version)

-
from software cd: look for this file:

dl145amd-8132.exe. unzipping the file, you will find a directory called X_1_8_1_0 - this has the .inf files you will need.

- Let me know how it goes.

Regars,

Tarek.
