Hello Guys,

I need an urgent help, really urgent.  I have just bought an Hp Proliant ML310e server and want to install windows server 2003 on it.

I got a blue screen:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you seen this error screen restart your computer.  If this screen appears again, follows these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drives controllers.  Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.  Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart computer.
Technical info:
STOP: 0X0000007B......

Please help me....


thanks

What type of drives are you using? Server 2003 was released prior to SATA so doesn't understand it.

Try disable SATA in the BIOS, Install, then re-enable SATA in the BIOS.

There are instructions on HP's site:  http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/mostViewedDisplay/?sp4ts.oid=5287871&spf_p.tpst=psiContentDisplay&spf_p.prp_psiContentDisplay=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Dmmr_kc-0108661-4%257CdocLocale%253Den_US&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

About halfway down the page:

"NOTE: For HP ProLiant DL160 Gen8 Servers, be sure to update the BIOS to (4 June 2012) or later.

How to enable or disable Dynamic Smart Array B120i Controller?

1> Press F9 during POST to enter BIOS.
2> Choose System Options, SATA Controller Options, Embedded SATA Configuration, Enable Dynamic HP Smart Array B120i RAID Support."

In this case you want to disable.

For systems with the B120i SATA controller:
 1. Boot the server into System Options.
 2. Navigate to SATA Controller Options -> Embedded SATA Configuration
 3. Change it to DISABLE SATA AHCI SUPPORT

I'm sorry I missed that part.  I am working on a major project here at work and trying to help at the same time.  

Anyway, disabling SATA should not have impacted the keyboard.  I am not sure what thaty may be.  I would check the connection on the keyboard.  Do the NumLock and CapsLock lights work when you toggle those keys?

USB keyboard and mouse?

They need to be plugged into USB2.0 ports since 3.0 wasn't out when Windows 7 came out.  The ports in the back by the NIC should be 2.0.
