I'm installing a Proliant DL320 G3 server which has a INTEL 82801FR SATA RAID Controler. When I boot with Proliant essentials software CD I get an error message that the version of the boot controller is not supported. So I try to install a fresh version of Windows but I get another error. Windows passes initial formatting and copying but then when restarts gives me another error, that the hard disc is not found. Maybe it's because I don't have a floppy with appropriate drivers. besides, if I download the driver from Intel I can't install them because I have no floppy drive on the server. It's actually the first time I install server on Proliant DL320 server, so maybe there's something I miss. Please, help!
