Having problems with your Celestica A8440 Server ?

Windows Server wont load

\015 For some reason, when I try to install W2K3, the OS does not detect and Hard drives. I configured a raid 5 Array and the bios does detect it. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

You need to install the raid drivers during the OS installation otherwise the setup program will not recognise it.\015\012\015\012At the beginning of the setup, just after the black screen disappears and the setup screen appears, it will say at the bottom:\015\012\015\012"Press F6 if you want to install third party RAID / SCSI drivers"\015\012\015\012or something along those lines.\015\012\015\012That's where you dive for the F6 button and install the drivers from floppy disk. I'm sure you know where to get the drivers from, if not, do reply and ask.\015\012\015\012Good luck!
