I have a  Proliant ML330 server that we added two 250Gig IDE hard drives in a RAID 1 configuration. We want to reload Windows 2003 server back on the system but we don't know what drivers to get when the system is booting ( press F6 ). We didn't think that it needed any drivers but the OS doesn't find any hard drives to install the OS on.

Are you planning a manual install or using the HP SmartStart CD?  The CD should have all the drivers you need and install them accordingly.

I don't have a HP CD. I inherited this mess so I am without anything but the OS. It says in the bios that it is a CSB-6 Ultra ATA 100 IDE Controoler.

You should be able to download a CD and burn one if one exists.  I have SmartStart on a bootable USB key!

What Generation of ML330 do you have?

There should be a sticker on the front plate or if you post the model number, I should be able to tell you.

Is the 470062-550 from the back of the server?

Are there any more codes in that format on the box?

Just trying to see which one supports your server (if one does)!

So do I use the first link?  I have been on the second link page but I didn't have a clue which item I needed. I tried several but from the storage area but nothing worked.
