Typically, you need to do more than just physically replace the drive.

You need to go into your RAID settings during the POST. Make sure the controller recognizes the drive and add it to the array.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

I have a Compaq Proliant ml370 G3 with an HP smart array 641 controller that I am trying to load SCO open server 5.0.6 on. This is tied to three drives in a RAID 5 config. When I try to run the Smartstart...


SSCD is not supported for the installation of SCO 5,6,7 or 8 you may need to create the arrays using ORCA at the bios of the 641 controller at post and then install SCO directlly from the installation cd.
To access ORCA press F8 or F9 when the smart array controller is posted at the bios screen

Unable to determine the boot device. Drivers may not be initialized. Initialize using the BIOS utility, or check if the disks are connected properly.


You need to go into setup view you drive array sounds like you may have one bad drive or the raid array has dropped by moving drives around hope this is what is wrong then re initialize the drive array you need more help email me at mje.bend at live dot com

Initialize using the BIOS Utility .

Not getting a drive letter from Compaq SCSI RAID setup


Did you see any new drives in the disk managemen screen? To get to the disk management, hold window key down and hit 'R', then type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.

If you do see the drive in the lower half of the screen, you need to initialize the drive either as dynamic disk or basic disk. Then you need to add a new partition and format it.

Good luck.

The system is setup using the RAID 5 config, now out of 5 drives it says 'OK' for 3 drives on 0, 1 & 2 and for 3 & 4 it says 'Replacement'. Is there any way of finding the correct Logical sequence...


Dont you have any levelling inside the machine? Go open and check.

When you have replaced the 2 defective drives with a new one, restart the computer and Raid 5 will automatically rebuild.

Harddrive array sequence causing system in booting


If the only drive you changed was the drive that failed and all the others are in the correct sequence, then that's a good thing.

The next question is, did you have this system setup in a RAID Array and if so, what RAID configuration were you using (RAID 0,1,5, etc.)? Some RAID configurations allow you to replace a failed drive and not lose data, but I will need to know more about how you set the system up in order to help you more.

Drive array problem


Hi Nick ,

As of now you can Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive. This Load OS Normally .
It seems that one of the HDD in the RAID 5 has failed , Did you notice any LED indications like red or amber on the HDDs ?? if so get that hdd replaced . Make sure the Failed HDD is replaced .
You can run the Array Diagnostic Utility from HP System tools to check the Failed Drives and also frimware version of the controller . If the frimware is not latest Update it from HP website. DL380 G4 should have Smart Array 6i controller .

Hope This was Helpful
cheers :)
