Hi Experts
 
 Trying to load server 2008 R2 onto a HP ML 110 G5 64 BIT XEON Processor machine. Didnt buy new so dont have the original setup CD, and  I am getting messages of
 
 "No drives found",

so I click load driver,  to provide a mass storage driver for installation
 but nothing is found when I point a CD and even USB stick  where I extracted some driver files to.
 
 It has 2 SATA drives from  seagate. Server 2003 Ent OS worked first time, complete install, recognised the drives etc.
 
 
 Can anyone advise me of specific links to drivers I need or general advise to allow me to precede.
 
 Happy to supply any further info
 
 
 Kind Regards

You can download the easy setup CD from HP's web, doesn't list 2008 R2 as a supported OS, but does list 2008 X64 so might work.

The following is based on the premise that the system is configured to use the drives as a RAID set.

In the case of systems running off RAID arrays, I generally recommend bringing the system up on a single non-RAID drive, if this is possible.  The RAID drivers and configurators can later be loaded into the system and tested for compatibility and operation.  When everything is running correctly in a single-drive configuration, the system can be migrated to the RAID set using a Windows-based disk cloning utility.

Hi Experts

I did download an Easy Setup  CD for my machine from HP, but received
"Primary controller configured in your system is not supported by this version of setup CD"

The offending boot controller is an Intel 82801 SATA RAID controller.

Can someone point me in the right direction for exact download please. My mainboard appears to be a wistron, and chipset 3065, and I have a Adeptec Serial host RAID.

Hi

Yes was down to specific drivers as I thought. Followed this advice, and now all is good. Important to extract and not just download or install drivers.


Many Thanks
