Proliant DL 320 G4: Problems installing Windows 2003

Hello. I have a big problem with a DL320 G4. I tried to install Windows 2003 server SP1 spanish version and R2 too. When installation is finished, the machine resets itself. I can see a BSOD with BAD POOL HEADER message. Spanish HP service tell me that I must install another version of Windows, not Spanish. I tried a Portuguese version and it works fine, but not with a Spanish version. Why ? I need to install spanish version of Windows 2003 server, not in any other language. Exists any patch to solve this problem ?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards from Spain.

Hi Daniel,

I don't have specific advice to this issue, but your situation would suggest a firmware update at least worthwhile.

I would recommend downloading the Firmware Maintenance CD from the support page for the DL320, and applying it.

I would then boot up smartstart and perform a system erase on your server, before trying to reinstall the OS.

Thank you very much for your answer.
I solved the problem installing Windows 2003 disabling VIRTUAL INSTALL DISK option in BIOS.
But now I have another problem. I installed a Windows XP Professional Spanish version and get BAD POOL HEADER error ( installing drivers from floppy with F6 option ). I installed a portuguese and english version of Windows XP professional without problems.
I know that Windows XP is not supported for this machine, but it works fine in any other language. Spanish version of Windows XP professional fails.

Solved problem with Windows XP using SATA RAID controller enabled and virtual install disk disabled, loading sata windows 2000 drivers.
