Default [HELP] IBM Server Hard Drisk Problem

Hello Everyone..

i have a problem on my server... my problem just send me a big monster server with 40klg.. and now i've try to set it up..

The Server has a 2 SATA hard drive on it.. 10,000RPM. 80GB Each..

the two hard drive detects on BIOS when i enter the setup. but when i tried to install Windows Server 2003 on it.. the setup says.. setup was unable to continue setup because no hard disk on your system was detected,, something like that..

so it means the setup dont detect my hard drive.. but the bios yes..

so what is the problem? i try also to run with only one drive. but same problem..

Any solution to this?

Thank you very much

use the server guideCD

that'll load the controller drivers and you can install windows from there.

you can probably get all of the drivers that are on the guide cd from the manufacturer's web site and then burn them to a disk

Have a look here: http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry...&brand=5000008

You should be able to download the IBM ServerGuide CD from there.
