Reseat the drives, but DO NOT swap slots. Keep exact, in case of RAID configuration.

Use the Smartstart disc. It may show you the current array config.

I want to start with New HP PRO ML370G5 Server with 2 HDD already plugged in but not configured...its going to be the very first time to confiure this server.Pls help me how to configure it with Array 400...

You will need to start with the HP SmartStart CD. If it did not come with the server, you will need to go to HP's site for that server model and download the image, burn to disk and boot from that CD (or DVD). The HP SmartStart CD should help you recognize partition and RAID-configure your drives, and begin the Windows (or other OS) installation process.

Can install Win2003 server

I am sure you can find one at It is better than the floppy because it will also load all of the other drivers you need.

However, if you want to save some time you could pull a floppy drive and cable from a workstation.
You can open the server case and connect the drive for the purpose of loading your RAID drivers and pull it once they are installed.
I am pretty sure that most server MBs and power supplies still have a floppy connectors on them.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

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.
