Proliant ML330 F6 boot drivers

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?

Not sure what generation this thing is. How do I tell?

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

I see two numbers Q6AC701T1QPOAP  or 470062-550

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Is the 470062-550 from the back of the server?

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

Here is a link for the smartstart downloads:

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.
