i am hoping someone can help as I have been working on this for two days now and I have to have the system setup in two days time.
I have a HP Proliant M110 server, without a floppy drive. I am having a real headache getting the controller to work with 2K3 without an onboard Floppy disk.
I have searched the forums already and found someone with an identical problem..
So I get a USB floppy, use the support disk that came with the server to copy the drivers onto a floppy.
Hit F6 at setup, specify the additional controller, so far so good. Goes through the setup process, choose relevant partition and then I get a message stating that "please insert disk labeled SATA Controller for Windows 32 Bit (2000, XP, 2003)". All I can do is press enter or quit but no matter what the system won't recognize the floppy disk connected to it, it is the same disk that I used to specify an additional controller but it just won't do anything. Then all I can do is restart and go back through the process again. I have tried everything I can think of and even downloaded a USB Key utility from HP which wasn't very helpful.
The support CD states that 2003 already has support for the HP Embedded Raid controller but if I leave it and don't specify an additional controller, setup doesn't find any hard drives.
I am stumped and like I said, now starting to sweat with this deadline is quickly approaching.
Anyone with any advice?
