CM OS install error #1838

Hi

Im trying to install the OS onto a HP DL380 G3. I have checked all hardware compatibility and everything checks out ok.

I have tried different OS disks and versions including 2000.2.4 2000.2.6 and 2000.2.7

The hardware detection cd works fine and it then asks me for disk 2. Disk 2 runs for a minute and then gives and error #1838 invalid drive number.

Anyone seen this?

Thanks

Michael

Bug -CSCdy66516.

Workaround:

Reboot the system with OS CD and run again, plus the second CD.

If the error is not seen after the second attempt and:

1) if the RAID configuration is correct (2 RAID 1 logical drives)

2) if the F: drive exists and has a VOLUME label of "Trace" then the configuration is valid and correct.
