I have an older HP Proliant server and I want to re-install the operating system (server 2003). I know that to install and configure RAID and operating system on a Dell server I would boot from the open manage disc.
How do I accomplish this on a HP  ProLiant DL360 G4 –
What do I need to do to re-install the operating system (server 2003)?

You need to customize your Windows 2003 installer to include the HP Proliant RAID driver to complete the installation.

On HP servers it is similar to Dell, only the CD is differently named. It should be called Smartstart CD. Check if you can download it from the HP site if you don't have it anymore.

Thank you both for your help. I used the HP Smart CD to configure the RAID and install the operating system.
