ML110 server with sbs
Posted on 2006-07-19
Hi, I'm trying to setup an HP ML110 server. It came with two 80gb sata drives, and the OS already preinstalled.
I can boot into Windows server, setup users, etc.. but when I try and setup the raid it won't boot afterwards.
I'm using the HP embedded sata raid controller, and have setup the array using the two drives which was done successfully. I've set the array as bootable. Also I went into the bios and set it up to boot from the raid. It boots and gets to the windows splash screen and then reboots itself continuously.
If I boot it in IDE it boots successfully into the OS.
In windows I can see both of the drives (booting into IDE).
Can I do anything to make it boot using raid, without reinstalling the OS??
When I tried reinstalling the OS when booting from raid it said it couldn't find the hdds, which I assume means it needs the sata drivers? But I would prefer to not have to reinstall.
