I have purchased an HP ML110 G5 for research into Windows 2008 x64 and Virtual Servers etc.
Despite trawling the internet for solutions, I am still unable to install the O/S. Problem arises when I try to load Driver on installation. I continue to get the error "Load Driver - To continue installation, use the Load Driver option to install 32-bit and signed 64-bit drivers........."
I still can't see a partition or array on which to install the O/S. I have enable the onboard SATA RAID in the bios and built an array with the two identical disks I have installed. Start-up shows logical drive.
I'm pulling my hair out as I've tried the .010 and .015 drivers and just about everything else I can think of. I have been trying both a USB key and a DVD-RW from which to load the drivers - The installation can see both and browse both. I have had a quick look at the text files .inf etc. and see they appear to refer to the root so have copied drivers based on root structure - still no joy. USB Floppy arriving tomorrow as last resort but really can;t see why thsi is not working - Please help!
