Per my system
C5 R5 with PERC S100
3 x 250GB Sata II HDD
With sata raid 5 mode enabled, now installing with Windows Server 2008, but kind of stuck for driver required upon installation (collecting information).
Which driver should i use?
If i used the sata AHCI mode, the installation completed.
Set Raid 5 In bios..
Upon Boot up.. selected F10
Follow the Dell USC steps.. insert dell DVD (auto-loaded T110 drivers)
Insert OS DVD
my two cents: why not use the Dell ystems management tools and documentation disc (SMTD), it would have been so much easier. This disc should have came with your system as well (though it might be an older version).Download the two ISO file segments to a new, empty folder and concatenate them. Create a single DVD image file using the following commands:Windows: copy /b OM* OM_630_SMTD_A00.iso Linux: cat OM* > OM_630_SMTD_A00.iso
Tried with the supplied DVD but failed because it not recognize (not valid) my 2008 DVD.
Tried loaded both it in FDD, but yet seem not the correct driver. it does not recognize.
Or how is the correct way?
Hello. I have run the above procedure several times and each time the OS install fails. The RAID is configured, I use the Dell USC to load the drivers and select the OS from the os deployment window. The server then reboots and the OS install fails with no drivers. Is there another step here that I am missing?
