Hello,

We have a HP ML110 server pc which used to have linux on. The unit had 3 drives with raid installed and we now need to install Win 2008 r2.

We would like to have Raid with the OS but when we come to try and install the it the required inf files cannot be found. We have looked online on HP website and downloaded these files to load the driver into the system to enable to install to recognise the drives but we cannot find the inf file which corresponds to the hardware.

Does anyone have any advice for us to allow this install to succeed?

Many Thanks

The Server is G6 and we are trying to load the drivers through the win 2008 r2 setup cd.

We have just found out that the drives were plugged into a raid card so we have changed some things now and apparently able to image the drive....but without the raid(for the time being)

You should just need the 2008R2 drivers for that card.

Hi Everyone, Thanks for your comments. I have still not managed to complete the task but I am halfway there and hope to have the server back up and running by the end of next week.

Many Thanks for your help.
