Windows 2003 64-bit instal on Proliant DL385 hangs

We're trying to install Windows 2003 64-bit version on a Proliant DL385 server. Have followed all the instructions on this web site, loaded the SCSI drivers from a floppy as instructed but when it gets to "Setup is Starting Windows" it just hangs and will not enter Windows setup. Any ideas on what to try?

Re: Windows 2003 64-bit instal on Proliant DL385 hangs

Hi Emily,
Please be more specific. When you say Windows 2003 64-bit version, do you mean Windows Server 2003, x64 Enterprise Edition? Windows Server 2003, x64 Standard Edition? Windows 64-bit for Itanium/Itanium2 processors (IA64)?
We support Windows Server 2003, x64 both Enterprise Edition and Standard Edition on the DL385 and those are fully test x64 on the DL385. What build of x64 are you using? What is the server platform configuration? Which SCSI driver and where did the SCSI driver come from?
