How to boot from CD


Do you have smart start installed on it? If so:
The F10 "Bios" partition is only available if the server has had SmartStart installed on it. The SmartStart partition is actually a 20Mb (ish) partition on the configured hard disks. If the partition is available, you will be prompted to press F10 at the end of Post boot just before the OS would kick in.

The position of the drives is important so keep them in 0,1,2 & 3. Once you can boot off SmartStart (v5.50 as mentioned), you can reconfigure the Array config in the Array Configuration Utility (ACU).

The ProLiant ML110 server with System BIOS Version 16 supports a total of eight IPL devices. Four IPL devices, such as the IDE controller and the floppy controller, are integrated, leaving support for four additional PCI IPL devices (i.e., PCI card plugged into PCI expansion slots); however, the ProLiant ML110 has five PCI expansion slots. Therefore, it is possible to configure the ProLiant ML110 with five PCI IPL devices (such as SCSI controllers or NICs) and exceed the limitation of System BIOS Version 16
The resolution to the problem is to update the System BIOS Version 17 which supports a total of nine IPL devices and five PCI IPL devices. Update the ProLiant ML110 server to System BIOS Version 17

I need driver hp proliant to install


If you are installing an OS from scratch, download the Proliant SmartStart CD for your server from HP. You simply boot from this CD and follow the instuctions to load your OS. Smartstart will configure your drives, pre-load drivers, and gracefully pass control over to the OS installer.
