Hi

did you check the compatibility of the HP Proliant ML330 and the csb-6 Ultra ATA-100 IDE raid controller.

is this the embedded version or the installable version.

i dont see the ML330 on the HCL

this talks about the I/O devices

IDE controllers are not supported.  You will need a minimum of a SATA controller that is on the HCL
