BartPE network card driver problem for HP DL 380 G5 server
Posted on 2007-07-25
I'm trying to boot our new HP DL 380 G5 servers with our BartPE CD. I've succeeded in getting the SCSI RAID working but i'm failing in getting the network card working. The network card type is a "HP NC 373i Multifunction Gigabit server adapter". I've tried all the windows server 2003 and windows 2000 drivers in the hp support site for the server (they don't have windows xp drivers available). I've also tried many drivers from the manufacturer Broadcom but Bart just can't find any suitable driver if I want tot start network support. I've also tried to use the drivers from the HP Smartstart CD (since it looks alot like Bart and it boots from CD and can use the network card and all other devices).
I use the latest BartPE builder version I could find: version is 3.1.10a. I've also tried to build Bart from our windows server 2003 CD-rom but this resulted in missing file errors during the boot from Bart so I went back to a windows XP based Bart wich work for ALL our other hp (and ibm) servers and our workstations.
I'm really stuck here right now because I need to boot this server and connect to the network in order to test and implement our backup restoring plans here.
Has anybody got the same server or network card and is also using a BartPE CD to boot it?
Thanks in advance!
