installing windows 7 x64 on proliant dl585 g1 a01

Posted in Uncategorized by flow on the October 21st, 2009

difficulties installing on disk. lots of “windows cannot blah system blah.

re-created raid array in bios. loaded windows 7. went to “repair” to get a command prompt. then ran “setup” from the ram disk. got it as far as loading drivers, loaded 2008 x64 hp 5i drivers (from HP web), then….

alt-tabbed back to command prompt. diskpat. created a new partition (primary) made it active. exit.

refreshed and continued setup.
