Hi! Which model of the Dl360 do you have? ida is normally used on the Generation 1, which is a completely white box, wheras the G2 has a black outfit, and uses the ciss driver. But I've never seen an G1 with 1266 MHz, or were those very late series? > > After the install finished copying files, I tried installing a standard > MBR, but when it didn't work I assumed I made a mistake and tried the > same install again with BootMgr.

I googled for this message to no avail. > FWIW, in my former company I worked, I had some Dl360, G1 with 933 MHz running. As OSType in the Setup tool I set Win NT4, which is sometimes important for irq routing. I created a standard RAID 1 Volume, with no diag partition whatsoever involved, and then 4.7-R and 4.8-R installed without problems, I chose not to use bootmgr, but a standard mbr. worked right out of the box. Do you have a chance to try again with perhaps a 4.7-R disc?
