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?
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.
turns out what was wrong was I HAD to have 4 hdds in the server
