[THIN] Re: RE : Re: Compaq aggravation

I haven't had any problems installing 2003  w/latest smartstart onto
DL380s, even the older ones.  Works just fine.  We use an unnattended
install and then connect to a Version Control Reposiotry for the compaq
updates.

Good *luck* trying to get the newer versions of Smart Start to work on the
DL380s <blech>.  I was able to get this to work by using SS5.0, then
updating manually to 6.2.  SS5.0 found the dual processors.  I would
*definitely* obtain the latest BIOS updates for your hardware, apply them,
and THEN try the SS5.0 install.  Once that's done, update the Support Paqs
and Utility Partition to the latest version of Smart Start that you can.

This is the process that we have to use for all 2000 and 2003 installs.
You
may have some issues with some of the services, just don't install them
until after the SupportPaq is updated (you can d/l the latest ones from
Compaq.com).

Hope that helps you out!

Jennifer

Have you tried upgrading the Bios? Check the Compaq site for softpaq
upgrades. JK
