a compaq proliant server, Smart Array 221 with 2 mirrored SCSI hard drive. Try to install the Windows NT, hit F6 to load the Smart Array driver. During the partition setup,  it shows a unbelivable huge hard drive space. Reboot the server, it then shows "Invalid Partition table". How could resolve this problem?

    Boot with the Compaq SmartStart CD ROM. It offers an option to do a full system erase.
    This will wipe out CMOS RAM, hard disks,etc.  nearly everything will be reset to its factory defaults.

    Hope it helps,
