Make sure that the motherboard and/or disk controller recognize the drives during POST.

Then check and see if IBM has a server installation CD-ROM that you can use boot the server and automatically load the correct drivers to prep for the OS install. I have downloaded installation CD ISO files from HP and Dell that walked me right through the OS install.

Another important consideration is that servers frequently use disk controllers that are not included in the operating system's driver files.
For example, when installing Windows OS on a RAID controller you must press F6 immediately after the installation CD-ROM starts up.
Later in the installation you will be prompted to insert a 1.44 diskette with the driver for your RAID controller.

The only challenge is to find the correct version of the driver and get it on a diskette.

I hope this helps.

You need to press f6 to install third party raid drivers when setup starts...then set will ask you to insert the floppy containing the files...It will ask you when you get to the same screen that tells you no harddrive found....The raid drivers are on ibm's website...just takes a min of poking around

Can I install windows 2008 R2 on ibm x226 server?


Hello,

You can if your system meets the minimum hardware requirement for Server '08. Check Microsoft website for more detail. You may need to up your memory if it is not above 2GB free and hard drive need at least 1GB for os to install.

Good Luck

How to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400


The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

Good Luck
