I'm starting a brand new install on a ML110, but HP either failed to send me a smart start CD for it or there are none; Nothing on their site...

Yeah, I know I can just install it old school, but I was just wondering

The old 'smart start cd' download link was closed by hp:
http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/22678.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

now you have to download all of the drivers & applications from 'Support & drivers' site of hp:
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

you need to install them after os installation.

hope it helps.

100 series aren't proper Proliants so they don't use smartstart. There is an easyinstall CD on HP's web but only for the G5s.

Actually, 10 minutes after posting this thread I found out that they do have a "smart start cd" for the ML100's, they just don't call it that :) They call it the easy set up CD : http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3577708&prodNameId=3577715&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-43b9aecd93834f978134bb10a9

I guess I was my own expert....

Sorry man, you just can't anymore. I'm the original poster and the one who found the link..

HP, for reasons only known to them, removed all vestiges of a smart start CD from their website, bummer because I found it, installed a couple of servers with it, and them promptly lost my copy! Doh!
So, now, to install a 100 series you have to go "old school" and get seperate drivers, hit F6 on windows set up, blah blah blah... Server 2008 is a litttle nicer then previous versions, as far as setup, at least it let's you use any media to install them, unlike the others which only accepted floppies!! :)

That's awesome andy! Upuntil a month ago they really had nothing up there...

But lke cbehrent said, that will only work with G5's, and believe it or not you can still buy brand new G4's from HP...
