    This is a server with a S5000PSL board and SROMBSAS18E raid controller. I load the driver from a floppy and begin the install, but for some reason before it begins to copy files it asks for the driver disk again but does nothing. Has anyone ever run into this? I thought once it loaded the drivers and saw the disks you were set to go?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    In my experience it is indeed. You might be missing a file or something. Download the full driver again and integrate with nLite/vLite.

    Try another floppy drive/floppy. sounds like a connectivity issue to me. anything pre Server 2008 will not see the array without the F6 driver, 2008 has a load of built in drivers and may or may not see the array without a driver (depends on the card but it doesent need drivers for some of my older machines)

    Going to try nlite, was using a usb floppy since the server doesn't have one.

    That's the way I would do it, less issues that way, I have issues with using floppies all the time... :ohwell:
