Hey Everyone,

I've got a Bladecenter That uses HS20 Blades that I'm trying to load W2K3 onto.  I'm having problems getting this installed correctly.  I'll either have W2k3 load the initial setup and present a NTOSKRNL.exe error or it just won't find the luns that I'm presenting as hard-drives at all.

I've got a FastT600 storage that I created a RAID 5 Windows 2000 Non-Clustered 20GB drive as, but I can't get Windows Setup to work with that.

I don't understand why FastT Storage Manager  version 8.33.G5.03 doesn't show Windows 2003 as an option when I'm setting these logical drives up.

I go to IBM's website, and all of the links that I go to after seaching for Storage Manger etc...end up being dead links.

Am I missing something because I'm really started to get upset with this BladeCenter?

Does anyone know of a version of this Storage Manger that will include Windows Server 2003 as options for all of this?
