A summary of The Request in the Ticket manager should describe the
Service Request 195482
I have a HP netserver with only SCSI devices, even the CDROM. The CDRom is
boots automaticaly. When entering the installation method, I can only
choose between NFS, FTP and HTTP and not my CDROM.
Even in expert mode I am not able to manualy select devices. ( I have no
driver diskette and this is not needed )
The server is equiped with the standard onboard SCSI controller an ADAPTEC
AIC 7770. The CD Rom the standard ReadOnly CDROM a Sony CDU-76S.
I checked it out with the noprobe option and now i was able to select CD-
Rom as installation method. I was also able to select the aic7xxx
controller but this seems to be an experimental driver.
After the selections ( server installation ), the installation starts but
during the installation it hangs. I tried it several times and it hangs on
Unfortunately, there are bugs with aic7xxx. You may file a bug a report at
this link because this is where our System Developers work any bug issues:
Summary so far: aic7xxx hangs for someone...?
More details would be useful if available.
Is this a motherboard with a 440GX chipset ?
How can I see if it's a 440GX chipset. The chips seems to have to be
manufactured in '93.
