Repairing Windows2000 Server

I have a Windows 2000 Server with scsi hard disk.  When I try to repair windows (because the server could not start) I can't find the HD and if I press F6 to search additional drivers I cant see the drivers for my HD.  I have a Proliant ML350 G3 nand I try download all the drivers that HP said.  Any ideas, mu server is down and  the production too

when you press F6 to add additional drivers, it searches the Drive A: for your SCSI drivers.  What you're looking for is a make boot type of program to copy your SCSI/RAID drivers to a floppy disk for you.  Does your SCSI drive connect on the motherboard on via an add-on card?  This may help you find the proper drivers for you setup.

Go to http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3279705&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=316537&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=181#113214 and pick the appropriate storage controller driver for your server.

You will either need to have the driver on a floppy disk available during boot and starting of the recovery console or slipstream the driver into your WIN2000 installation media if you don't have a FDD in the server.

In this case the problem is the windows 2000 setup doest not read the drivers unless the file txtsetup.oem is on the diskette.  There are only 2 drivers in HP for the proliant ML350 that have that file and those are not the drivers for the disk.
