    Win2k8 on IBMx345

    installation windows server 2008 on a ibm x345, modell 8670[edit]

    because there was an issue with the driver for the raid-controler, i had loads of tries until i found this way, that worked for me:

    1) boot the win2k8-server-install-dvd with an extern usb-dvd-drive

    (this takes a long time because this machine supports only usb 1.0)

    2) select "standard installation"

    3) delete all partitions and prepare new ones, then klick on "continue"

    4) some seconds after the installation has begun, press cancel/abort,

    the install programm will start again.

    now at the place where the partitions are shown, you have the opportunity to load

    a special driver


    5) on the cd IBM serverguide 7,4 you will find a driver designed for windows 2003 server,

    for the lsi 1030 raid-controller

    you will find it in that path:

    cdrom

    --- sguide
    
           ----- w2003drv
    
                   ----- lsiscsi2
    

    it is named: -- symmpi.sys


    !!!there is also a never driver version out in the world, and also a driver designed for win2k8,

    all of them did't work for me!!!! also that driver that you can find via lsi.com didn't work

    6) after selecting that driver, click "continue";
