Initial Release

Installation:

To use the driver while installing Windows Server 2003:

In this scenario, the driver will be loaded during the Windows Server 2003 operating system installation. To install the driver:

  • Create a driver disk by extracting the contents of the Smart Component to a floppy diskette.
  • If creating an array, press Ctrl+A or F8 when prompted to enter the BIOS Setup utility.
  • Press F6 when prompted to install a third-party driver.

Note: When F6 is active, a prompt appears at the bottom of the screen. Press F6 immediately—you only have 5 seconds. If you miss your chance, restart this Windows installation to complete it correctly. Otherwise, Windows will not recognize your controller.

  • Insert the driver disk you created in Step 1 and wait until prompted to install a driver.
  • Press "S" to specify that the driver is on the floppy disk, then press Enter.
  • When the HP Embedded SATA RAID driver is found, press Enter. Follow the remaining on-screen instructions to complete your installation.

Installing the driver on a system already running Windows Server 2003:

In this scenario, you are installing a driver in a system that already has a Windows operating system. To install the driver:

  • Download the Smart Component to a directory on your hard drive and change to that directory. The downloaded file is a self-extracting executable with a filename based on the Smart Component Number.
  • From that drive and directory, execute the downloaded file to install the driver.
