Installing Windows Home Server 2011 on a ProLiant ML350e Gen 8 Server (Nothing appearing in Operating System Selection During Install) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just purchased Windows Home Server software that required a new server to be purchased. I went with the ProLiant350e Gen8 Server. Upon starting up the new ProLiant server I booted from CD-Rom and got to the Windows Install program. I clicked  "Install A New Server" However, as soon as this page loads it gives me an error that says "Load Driver" "A required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver is Missing. If you have a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now." It gives me the option to browse or click okay. Browse only brings up the (x:) Boot drive and VID. It doesn't find the driver in VID Than if I click okay it gives me a message that says "No Device Drivers were found. I have also tried to use Intelligent Provisioning but it checks the DVD drive after I get the error msg. "Unable to find any valid media".

    Thanks in advance,

  • You might be better off asking this question on an HP site if the server needs specific drivers.
