Hello,

Was you able to boot and run the installation at all or did this occur on first boot?  What is the model of HP Server?  

Has it come pre-installed or do you have an SBS CD?

Have you got the boot order to boot to the CD first? If not, try that.

Are you running it via the Smart Start CD / Intelligent provisioning?

Hi David,
yes we were able to run the installation until a certain part then the message,

its a proliant ML310E GEN8 SERVER

no pre-installation
yes we got the boot order to CD first.
and yes we are running via the Smart CD / Intelligent provisiones.

Still after a few minutes we get message "cannot find the media "

it here says the raid is configured and the system sees it..
but when booting the system does not see the raid..

HP have created the following article about the issue on the 350p Servers:

I don't like the idea of disabling the SAS Controller though... Its a little unclear really.

I would contact HP Support as the server will still be under warranty.  Their support guys should be able to advise you the best solution to the problem.

If you're in the UK then call this number: 0845 161 0030

When asked for the product, say:  'Proliant running windows'

When you run the install, you select which partition you want install on, you should have an option at the bottom to press to install additional drivers.   put the raid drivers on a USB flash drive or DVD and insert in the server, then click on the link,  then navigate to where the drivers are and select them and then continue
