Use the IBM configuration disk and it should be able to prepare the server for what ever OS you need to install. If you don't have it then, try redoing RAID and reformat the hard drives and try again..You can probably hit F6 during the initial portion of the install and supply the necessary SATA drivers on a floppy and get it to install. You will probably need a USB floppy though unless your server has a floppy drive.

Insert your Microsoft Server 2003 Installation disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive and boot the server from the installation disc. Microsoft Setup will load the files it needs to perform an installation. Press "Enter" to setup and install Windows.

  • 2 Press "F8" to accept the Microsoft License Agreement.
  • 3 Create a new partition to install the operating system onto by selecting the "Unpartitioned Space" and pressing "C." If there is no unpartitioned space, highlight and delete all of the other partitions on the hard drive by pressing "D." Set the partition size to the "Maximum Size" and press "Enter."
  • 4 Format your new partition with the "NTFS" or the "NTFS (Quick)" option. Windows setup will format your hard drive and load the installation files. Your IBM Netfinity will restart and installation will continue.
  • 5 Select language and regional setup information, then press "Next." Enter your name and company name, then press "Next." Enter your Windows 2003 Server Product Key and press "Next."
  • 6 Select the licensing mode you would prefer to use and press "Next." Create an administrative account and password and press "Next." Enter the current time and time zone and press "Next."
  • 7 Setup your Network information by naming the server and defining how it will connect through the net. Press "Next" to navigate through the network setup screens. Windows Setup will finish the installation process and provide you with a log-in screen to use your computer.
  • If you delete old partitions from the hard drive to install Windows Server 2003, you will lose all information on those partitions.

    I tried to do a fresh installation of this server but the message that comes out was cannot find the hdd's

    Why did you need to do a fresh install? If the software can't find the HDDs then maybe there's a hardware problem that needs to be addressed that can't be solved with a fresh install.

    Please check out my business server website, especially if you're in the Washington DC area.

    I need to install 300 computers and connect them to 3 servers .how long should this take

    How long is a piece of string?
    It depends upon a host of factors.
    Has the network cabling been installed, patch panel been setup?
    How are the servers distributed, are they grouped together or on separate subnets on different floors?
    Are the printers and computers all the same and the same software, if not how are the configured for the network?
    Have you considered redundancy options, and UPS power supplies?
    What type of network administration, setting up user login and access etc.?
    These are only a few issues you need to consider and you need to project manage and setup time lines to do a smooth installation as large as this installation.

    Cannot boot Linux Enterprise 3 on DL360 G5

    It looks like you rebooted with the installation CD/DVD in the CD/DVD drive. Take the install disk out of the optical drive, and set the server to boot from a hard drive, preferably the hard drive with Linux installed on it. You can do it. I have faith in you.
