How to installed xp2 in server hp proliant ml 350 my hard drive ok


You may need raid controller driver for HP proliant ml 350. Copy raid controller driver in flopy disc, insert it in flopy drive, insert cd in cd driver, boot server from cd and start installation process, as soon as you see Press F6 if you need to install third party scsi drivers or raid controller, press F6 and follow the instruction. It will then ask you to select RAID driver file and then will continue to windows xp installation.

If same as before now please take a risk and ready to chip label repair,
1.Change all the capacitors, beside the processor, with the help by nearest technician.

2.Set an identification Mark, on the bios chip, by the permanent marker because you need to remove and install it.It could not be possible for all mother board .
3.Remove bios chip from base , clean with solvent and install it proper again.
4.For Intel mother mother ,install a flopy drive and switch on the power and,follow the flopy drives "led light", either it glow or not.
If the flopy drives led light on,download bios filre for your intel mother board ,paste on flopy.follow the bellow link for download.

5.Now don't switch off your motherboard at the time of updating the bios,so please use an ups,and insert the flopy, along with bios file.Set the cmos jumper in recovery mode( just change the normal position ),and switch on motherboard, hope, through this proceses, should recver the mother board.
If the problem is same, I will recoment you for new motherboard.

Hp pavillion m9080n cannot read flopy disk


Floppy disk drives (and disks) are not that reliable and usually fail, especially on older computers. A test would be to try a different floppy, also try formatting a different floppy. Can you read the problem floppy from a different computer?
